Rhapsody Nusantara – An Ode to the Nation

Our country’s Independence Day is coming, and we are happy to be able to call Indonesia our home. Here at Padma Resort Legian, we are ecstatic for our upcoming themed event, RHAPSODY NUSANTARA acknowledging Indonesia’s day of freedom. Yes, the biggest Archipelago in this world is celebrating the day of independence, preaching the nation’s history and traditions. We are home to hundreds of ethnic groups, each practicing their own culture. We would like to show the world how proud we are to have gone this far in keeping such a young country alive.

We invite you to be a part of us! As a hospitable and open island, we want you to know how welcomed, touched and proud we are to be one of the world’s leading destinations. We would therefor like to commemorate this special occasion and take you to an exceptional journey where three of your five senses will be touched; Mata, Rasa and Suara (the eyes, the taste and the sound).

We are first going to accompany you to the travel of mata (the eye) as we hope to guide your perception of Indonesia’s treasures, to make sure you only see and feel the best. For this journey, we are going to present the beauty of the Indonesian traditional arts and amazing cultures. You are going to discover the anyaman, the tenun, the batik, and other Indonesian artistic treasures as well as Indonesian dances wrapped in both classic and modern touches.

We would also like to take you to a tour of rasa (the flavour) through the succulent Indonesian delicacies and traditional beverages specially prepared by Padma Resort Legian culinary brigade. Our drinks are pretty special! We have this special beverage called the jamu which comes along with wonderful health benefits along with its unique taste. These beverages will be presented in interactive dances along with Java’s, Bali’s, Sumatra’s and Kalimantan’s exotic harmonies.
