What we do

Community Relations

Every Balinese village or community is made up of one or more 'Banjars'. This is a type of community council which protects the traditions of the area and carries out community work and social welfare services. The Banjar´s decisions are quite autonomous so it is very important to keep the Banjar informed about the villa development and establish a harmonious relationship right from the beginning. Many western owners who are on the island for extended periods of time, become popular and well liked members of the Banjar, especially those who take part in community activities and ceremonies or extend a contribution of financial support for such. However, a few Banjar’s, or officials within a Banjar, have a reputation for being quite challenging. It may be useful for you to enlist the aid of a knowledgeable person to find out if there are any particular peculiarities you should know about before you move into a Banjar’s district. 

 

It is advisable to be assisted by a Balinese person who understands local community dynamics and we can help you.
