Experience Bali’s colourful and creative culture!
Looking for the best your luxury Bali holiday has to offer – then tap into your inner cultural enthusiast and head along to two very exciting festivals you don’t want to miss.
Based in your stunning luxury Bali villa, you can enjoy many of the island’s cultural delights – simply by venturing out to Denpasar and Padanggalak.
THE BALI ARTS FESTIVAL
Coming up in June and running for four weeks is the Bali Arts Festival in East Denpasar. It is considered the most enchanting festival of the year and the best way to experience an eye-boggling showcase of dramatic Balinese and Indonesian colour, beauty, arts and culture. Enjoy nightly shows at one of the six theatre sites, while the festival opens at 10am every morning filled with local craft and food stalls to help you enjoy the daily shows highlighting traditional music and dance from all over the island. Witness authentic non-dialogue masked dance dramas (Sendratari Ramayana), musical shows, theatre exhibitions, art exhibitions, not to mention a plethora of craft workshops, street parades and culinary delights.
THE BALI KITE FESTIVAL
The Bali Kite Festival marks the start of the windy season, which also happens to be peak travel time in Bali around July (Weather permitting!). Thousands of tourists and locals flock to Bali’s beaches in Padanggalak, north of Sanur, to see the amazing kite festival take place. Both locals, equipped with authentic Balinese kites, and foreigners, complete with their modern versions, can compete in kite flying. Hundreds of troupes gather dotted along the coastline to pilot their kites as the vivid colours, shapes and materials take to the sky. It’s a competition in which size really does matter. The Balinese people consider kite flying and kite making a serious business. In some cases an entire village has helped craft and pilot the kites. Giant kites engulf the sky in all and any imagined shapes and sizes, ducking and weaving to create a mesmerising display. If you love a sensory-filled jaunt to Bali you will thoroughly enjoy the Bali Kite Festival. Mark your calendar and hit the beach to witness the kite craziness these holidays. This incredible spectacle is not to be missed if you can time it during the high winds of the dry season.
