If I had a family, this would not be a venue I would want to visit. The first 15 minutes are spectacular as you get to witness a very culturally significant show. However, after 15 minutes one gets a little antsy as the music and especially the beat is very repetitive and the dance appears to be the same for... More

I loved evetything about this show, the dancers were highly proffessional, with very intricate steps and movements all completed to perfection. The costumes were unique and so colourful, the musicians were superb! Those arriving late or near the end should be asked to "Be Quiet", which was rude of them and very distracting!!

This dance is everything you think Balinese dance will be. Every movement is carefully precise and has a meaning. Even the eye movements are significant. The costumes and makeup are exquisite. The price is very reasonable and this is great fun for all.

Held at Ubud palace only on Friday evening (7:30pm - 9:00pm). Totally worth the money. Be sure to come early before the showtime otherwise no front row seats left. Barong the monster and his pal monkey are lovely and funny.

If you enjoy cultural dance at a great price this is the show for you! I feel the show was pretty authentic (we might have caught the show on a bad night but the music could have probably been a bit more harmonious...) I think i felt a bit more uncomfortable as it was a really hot and humid night... More

Nearly did not go!!! Tickets are reasonably priced at 80000IDR, and completely worth the experience. Get there early to get good seats. The show is about the good vs the bad, or evil rather. We didn't understand the language but they play was so well enacted that we got the plot.

We really enjoyed the evening of traditional Balinese dance and music. We went on a Friday night and it was quite crowded. Arrive early if you want a good seat.

Enjoyed the Barong and Kris Dance play very much. The Barong -Play represents an eternal fight between good and evil spirits. Barong, a mythological animal represents a good spirit and Rangda, a mythological monster, represents an evil one. There are five acts, filled with colorful costumes, a variety of characters, music and more. Very entertaining and the time passed quickly.... More

The show is at Ubud Palace for sunny days and at the pavilion across the street for rainy days. We came on Friday. Go 0.5~1 hour earlier for front row seats. Ticket price is 80k per person. Show was awesome! The body and eyes moves so beautiful, the clothes were gorgeous, and skills were so high and professional. Big value... More
