It was so amazing i was spellbound. The spectacle, the sound, it was just incredible. I have been to a Barong dance and this was totally different and better

Best show i have seen in Ubud, well worth it! The dancers were great and the chanting is fantastic! It started raining and they jut picked up the whole show and moved it inside, very practiced! Make sure you stay until the end for the big finale!

We wanted to watch the Kecak dance again, and to show it to my mum in law who was travelling with us this time, but we didn't want to go to the Uluwatu one because of our experience with the aggressive monkeys there last year - didn't think she would relish walking along the cliff edge without her specs and harassed by glaring monkeys!
Our driver recommended the dance here instead, and it was pretty good.

The dance is made special by the fact that the 'music' is all vocals by the men, it's great how they can chant and make such enthralling sounds. The dance was also interesting and colourful. The performance is on a stage surrounded by some chairs and more stone benches, and you need mosquito repellent to be safe.(although the smoke and flames from the Fire dance part probably also help to keep mozzies at bay!)

We were provided with a sheet detailing what the performance was about, which was informative.

Of course, the setting cannot compare with the wonderful one that Uluwatu offers - the open air amphitheatre with the majestic backdrop of the waves crashing on the cliffs and the sun setting off in the distance - if you have a choice, I'd still recommend that to see the Kecak dance, but this one is good and getting there is much less traumatic!

This is the 'real deal' ... a wonderful mix of choreographed and spontaneous trance dance movements, celebrating sacred stories. Atmospheric place, at night, with the fire, chanting and evocation of the gods.I go every time I visit Bali, and each performance is different, but also recognizable. A real treat. Book ahead by phone, and take mosquito stuff for your legs -:) Plenty of restaurants nearby, so a great evening out.
