Uluwatu Kecak Dance, Bali

Hello guys.. This time I want to tell you about one of the most beautiful tourist spots in Bali that I have ever visited. After a few days of touring in Ubud and Gianyar, my next destination was the Uluwatu area. Uluwatu is famous for its beautiful beaches with white sand and high waves so that the beaches in Uluwatu are a favorite for surfers to surf. But this time I want to share my experience of seeing one of the best performing arts in Bali, namely the Kecak dance at Uluwatu Temple.

Kecak Dance Uluwatu Location

To get to Uluwatu Temple, which is located on Jl. Uluwatu, Pecatu, Kec. South Kuta and to get there it takes about 40 minutes drive from the Kuta area. The price of the entrance ticket to the temple is around Rp. 30,000 per person for domestic tourists and Rp. 50,000 per person for foreign tourists. Before entering the temple area, you will be required to wear a kind of sarong or cloth for you to use while in the temple area, but don’t worry, there is a place to borrow it and visitors can borrow it for free. For those who wear short subordinates, you must wear a sarong and for those who have worn long subordinates, it is enough to use a cloth tied around the waist to respect the temple area.

The Attraction of Uluwatu Temple

In addition to the Kecak dance performance, Pura Luhur Uluwatu has an amazing tourist attraction. Starting from the view of the sea from the top of a high cliff, the beauty of the temple at the end of the cliff, to the beauty of the temple area that attracts the heart. The area of ​​​​Uluwatu Sublime Temple is quite wide and there are still many trees along the road to the edge of the cliff, but it will decrease when we reach the edge of the cliff so that the hot sun will hit us directly.

This tourist area is also still a habitat for wild monkeys, therefore you must be careful so that your belongings are not taken by the monkeys such as glasses, cellphones and other flashy items. While the right time to visit this place is noon until the afternoon when during the day we can enjoy the temple area while in the afternoon we can enjoy the Kecak dance until sunset.

Enjoying the Beachside Kecak Dance

The ticket counter for the new Kecak dance opens at around 17.00 WITA and you can buy it directly in the Uluwatu Temple area. The temple entrance ticket and the Kecak dance ticket are not the same, guys, if you want to watch the Kecak dance you have to buy another ticket. And the ticket price in 2019 is around Rp. 100,000 per person and for now we don’t know whether it has increased or not.

After buying tickets, you should go directly to the show venue to choose the best spot when watching. I think the best spot is facing the sunset, so apart from watching the dance, you can get a bonus sunset view too. It was the holiday season so the venue was very crowded and crowded, luckily I entered when the place was not too crowded so I could choose the best place to watch.

This Kecak dance in Uluwatu tells the story of the Ramayana and is played by several characters such as :

  1. Rama, a handsome young man who is kind.
  2. Dewi Sita, a beautiful woman with a pure heart.
  3. Hanuman, the ape-man.
  4. Rahwana, a giant with an evil character.

Kecak dance is a sacred dance. Therefore, before the dance begins, there will usually be a Hindu priest who leads the prayer first. This is a bonus sunset during the Kecak dance performance. Since the sky is a little cloudy so the sun is visible when it sinks on the horizon. Honestly, this is one of the best sunset views and atmosphere I’ve ever experienced.
