Kecak Dance is a one of a kind performance you can only catch in the Island of Gods. The sunset acts as a stunning backdrop for an unforgettable experience.

What better way to celebrate local Balinese culture than with a traditional Kecak dance performance set against the backdrop of some of Bali’s most stunning landmarks! A dance and music drama originating from the ancient Sanghyang trance ritual, the Kecak dance depicts the battle of the Ramayana Hindu epic while thanking the gods for their many blessings. Its story follows the fight of Prince Rama against the evil King Ravana, with a circle of some fifty to over a hundred men playing Rama’s army of monkey-like Vanaras. Immerse yourself in sounds of Bali’s past with the splendour of ‘chak’ chanting, fire stomping, and extravagant costumes. This sunset spectacle is sure to draw a crowd at any of the locations listed below!
