After viewing the $30,000 Rp. temple, a $100,000 Rp. dance show entrance fee ticket can be separately purchased. The literature explains that a choir of 70 men "chant in a trance-like state" without accompanying musical instruments. For 5 minutes (or less) it was entertaining, but...More

The show is beautifully set at the cliffs at Uluwatu during sunset. The views of the ocean are wonderful as a backdrop. Unfortunately, as this is a tourist attraction, the seating is extremely cramped. It gets quite uncomfortable to be seated for nearly 1.5 hours...More

After Uluwatu temple visit you can see the kecak and fire dance. For me, it's not much interesting. Their story is based on Rama and Seta. The only interesting thing is there is no background music and the 70 ppl are making music with their...More

For a long drive and something that people call 'must-see', I cannot agree. Repetitive sounds and no actual talking during the main show, it gets boring and annoying. If you want to get out you need to leave a little early and book a taxi...More

The cost of a ticket is 100k and they provide a explanatory page about the dance. The show gets extremely packed with the officials squeezing people into any small space they can find, to the point where you are packed like sardines. It's all about...More

This is my third times visit this place, and still amaze with the view, especially when dusk. The sunset was amazing also the pink sky. Although the ticket price quiet expensive for Indonesian, but it gives spectacular scenery and tradition. Little advice for ticketing, if...More

Hi my sister and I will be staying at the Ramada Bali Sunset Hotel and wish to experience an evening at the Kecak and Fire Dance. I see it is a 40 min drive from our Hotel to Uluwatu Beach. Can anyone tell me would we be wiser to book through our Hotel & approx cost in Australian Dollars as well as booking a driver to get there and back?? I have not been to Bali before so unsure what our best option would be. We do not want to get stranded after the show finishes but I do not know if there is any other transport to Uluwatu available to us? We will be in Bali 19 September but only for 6 days so trying to plan a few outings in advance. Thank you in advance for anyone who may be able to assist with my questions.
