Kecak Performance on the beach

The iconic Balinese dance incorporates a troupe of 50 men and depicts an epic battle from the Ramayana scriptures, where the monkey-like Vanara joined Prince Rama in fighting the evil King Ravana. The chorus of chanting comprises seven different rhythms, each delicately interwoven to create a complex tapestry of sounds.

Fire Dance

Our last evening of the year begins with a fire show poolside, featuring six fire masters who will present a dazzling and dangerous display of movement and co-ordination. Musicians on traditional instruments in accompaniment will provide the pulse and tension as the dancers tempt fate by playing with fire.
