The day you check in they'll force you to reserve for a "cultural show" with dinner costing idr125, 000 per person for balinese food and show. The show was supposed to be from 7.30-9pm with song n dance balinese style. We were 4 of us and upon coming for the show realised that we were the only 4 who paid for a so called cultural show which by kids who use it like a practice session. The first 15mins of the show was relatively better off but nothing of professional standards. After the first 15mins the boys took over and started screaming in something which sounded like frogs croaking rather than music. There was a lone gal dressed in Indonesian dress not even dance costume, trying to dance to the croaking. For the next 45mins they got people from the audience to try their balinese dancing skills n make fools of themselves. N the show stopped at 8.30pm prior to the promised 1.5hrs. Anyway I doubt if I could have taken anymore of the croaking lest I go deaf. We were the only 4 who fell for their so called claims n the show worked out free for all others using the restaurant. The meal after paying so much included just free water and no other drinks. The irony being that customers just using the restaurant get to choose their preference of meal for much lesser cost and also enjoy the show while you pay and get stuck with hotel's choice of meal for you which might not even suit your taste. There was some kind of Indonesian soup served which most of us kept aside after the first sip followed by some rice, fried chicken and fish balinese style. The food was nothing exotic except for the balinese flowers they had on the table. This was followed by dessert of cut fruits...pineapple which was still raw! All in all waste of 500k rupiah to blast the hell out of your ears with some kids croaking thru mikes n calling it balinese culture. Oh n we did even have the bell boy joining the boys in dancing "balinese style"
