You must see this dance - it's spectacular. Men chanting, fire and beautiful dancers. The local banjars arrange these events - around Rp75k.

Very entertaining except for the mosquito squadron, toilets at the venue we attended were less than sanitary however that is Bali in some places.

60 and more local Balinese men chanting and acting, combined with amazing Balinese dance telling one of the Hindhuist stories in an exceptional setting. They do this on a voluntary basis to support the maintenance of the temple and prepare for this for one year. We talked to the managing director of the Ubud Bungalows about it, who is one... More

We saw this uluwatu temple. Beautiful with sunset on the side. It was crowded so make sure you go early to get the tickets. The seats are limited. Hanuman (white monkey) in the act was really funny. Also you need to wear full covered dress to get inside, they provide sarong otherise for free. Must go. This is the most... More

We enjoyed our visit to see the performance and picked up a ticket on the street just an hour before the show started. We were about 25 mins early and still ended up with front row seats- no need to go any earlier. The show usefully told the story in the 'ticket leaflet' otherwise we wouldn't have known what was...

We loved this show and being able to take photos at the end with some performers was good for the kids too. The trance dance part is amazing.

It's an amazing setting, against the sunset at Uluwatu bay. There are surprisingly very comical elements in the dance, so everyone can be entertained

Iconic Balinese dance of the 1930s. Based on a story from the Ramayana. Well worth going to. Very lovely in the Pura Dalem Temple.

We were provided the story of the dance to read before the performance and found the dancing really did tell this story. We had no idea of the significance of the fire dance and were amazed when it was performed, and without giving too much away, it was highly dramatic.

I enjoyed the high energy and expressions of the dancers. We would have liked to get a brief introduction so we could follow more easily. I did not like the woman sitting behind us who complained of my husband's height-as if he or anyone else could change it. The bathrooms at the ARMA Museum were very far from the area... More
