We enjoyed watching this traditional Bali performance of Indian origin with the Indian Ocean and Uluwatu cliff as background. The story and dance is accompanied by 70men singing in trance as background music & storyline. As the storyline unfolds enjoy the magnificent sunset in this...More

Watch this show at Batubulan which started a bit earlier compare to the one at Uluwatu or Pura Dalem Ubud. Very impressive traditional show on the storyline of Ramayana. At the last part of the show, a few of the performers were in trance state...More

Its the better than the others Balinese show. And you should go and watch it. If it’s the big show, their dancer more than 100 people and they do their music with their mouth 👄 I love it so much

Our hotel recommended this Kecak dance. It was amazing to hear the 100 male voices chanting together and to see the beautiful costumes and masks and men walking on burning coconut husks. The only difficulty was that the performance was overbooked and the organisers made...More

The show is amazing, but not for everyone. People there, instead of silently watching wonderful exotic cultural performance, were drinking beer and talking loudly. What a disrespect. That's the only minus, though. People, please, respect the culture!

My husband and I weren't sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed the Kecak and fire dance in Batubulan. It's about a 35 minute drive from Ubud and far less congested and crowded than most other tourist places in Bali.The performance is in an outdoor...More

You've seen the Barong dance, now come and see the Kecak fire and trance dance! A traditional tale of a story similar to Romeo and Juliet. It can be easy to have no idea what is going on unless you read the itinerary or have...More
