We came to Uluwatu temple mostly because of the dance, like most people do probably. We arrived at about 17.00, so 1 hour before the dance and we got our tickets. There are a lot of people there, so if you want to get Nice view, also with sunset behind you must go there at least half an hour before and sit there and wait. The price for the dance is 150k idr for one person and for the price we must say we expected a little bit more than it was shown in the dance. The most interesting part is the fire at the end and the white monkey jumping around but i think that without this two parts, the show would not be really interesting. Many people were leaving in the middle of the show which is really not approriate but it shows that people were a little dissappointed. All credit to the guys that are singing all the time like in trance that must be really hard to do for one hour straight. So all in all it was nice but i would say that 150k per person is a little to much for what you see. Also i urge anyone who maybe in the middle get dissapointed and want to leave to wait till the end to see the most exciting part of the dance.

I found the dance average, though my family was quite thriller about the performance. While the setting, evening breeze, fire-heavy performance was mesmerizing in bits and pieces and the funny rendition by Hanoman was laugh-worthy but I didn't find enough to keep me hooked for the entire ~60 minutes. I was more interested in the sunset scenery at Uluwatu.

Do book your tickets in advance through various tour websites or through your hotel as it can get very crowded. Also, try to arrive a bit early (maybe by 5:30-5:40 for the 6 PM performance) as the best seats could else be gone. The best seats are the ones in middle in the central arena or at best on the far side (farthest from temple area).

For an Indian - Ramayan theater is something which almost every one would have watched but this Ramayan depiction was at another level and completely different from what is there in India.

It has music, dance, comedy, fire - everything and best was the Hanuman actor, he made the whole show so amazing.

The fire thing was also very nicely put up.

Also please note theater gets full very fast so to get desired seats to arrive atleast 30 minutes early (they do put additional seats so you will surely get seat but always better to be present in advance)

There are many Kecak shows around the Indonesia, I would highly recommend to see this one.

Everything about it was amazing. The dance, the ambiance, the story, everything! The view is breathtaking. It is a must see whenever you go to Bali. Of course you can only see the performance if the weather is good, because the show is held out in the open area.
My tips for future traveler: if you come during holiday season (high season) do come early so you can get the best sitting position. Dont forget to prepare your camera, the memory card, the batteries so you wont miss the opportunity to capture the experience.

One of the best shows that I have ever seen.
There is NO Orchesta, but it has around of 70 choirs men accompanied There are performers making odd sounds from their own mouths and it seems so melodious. They depict the story of the Hindu myth, The Ramayana.
The performers were superb in their art as they displayed real zeal and performed to their very best. The costumes used were of top quality and top-notch. Special mention of the person who played Hanuman. He was so energetic and made everyone in the audience laugh to splits. The show will definitely keep you engaged.
Must see when you are here.
The sun setting at the backdrop of the Ocean is a beholding sight.

One of the highlight at Ulluwatu Temple is Kecak Fire & Dance Show. The Kecak dance show was beautiful which happens at sunset hour. The lively and colourful show depicts the story of Ramayana in a very innovative and descriptive way. The character Hanuman interacted with the audience and also danced on fire. We enjoyed so much and also got clicked with the amazing characters too. One needs to ensure that they come on time to get good seating.

50k entrance fee for the temple, 150k for the show that takes about a hour. Nice to see, but be aware the temple closes right after the show. Show is a 17:55. Better come earlier.

This is in an open area arena so you have to sit on concrete steps for a couple of hours since you have to arrive early in order to find a place to sit. However the day we went they did not stop filling the arena with people so it became so crowded that there was hardly any place for the dancers and the singers. Add to that the hot sun (90 F) and 40 singers screaming and fire burning not too far away, it was unbearable. We wanted to get up and leave but they packed in people so tightly that we could not even move. The show was nothing great - scenes from the Indian epic "Ramayana". We saw the same thing a few days later in the comfort of an air conditioned auditorium when we went to see the Devdaan show, which was much better than the Kechak dance show.

Arrive early and get great spot to watch performance, since there will be finish after sunset, so we can enjoying performance and beautiful sunset at Indian ocean from our seat.
Read the story from the pamphlet, you will understand the full story.
There are no instruments or music, but great Kecak singing with loud, energetic and unique.
Tips:
Come early as soon as it’s open
Get great spot for performance and sunset
Use hat and sunglasses
Bring foods and water
Take photo with the dancer 😁

We visited with a group of 10 family members. The show was quite good however was let down by allowing people to come and go throughout the show and the repetitive sound of the “tap tap tap”, singing and sound. It became really annoying to the point of us wanting to leave early.
