Life in Ende Village
Truly authentic Sasak cultural experience, made possible through collaboration with the local community. Spend a whole day in Ende Village, a traditional village and experience the entire cultural highlights. Start with a morning coffee and round-village tour. Watch the live performance of Gendang Baleq, a traditional music orchestra. Depending on the time of the year, witness peresean or Sasak stick fighting. Cook lunch together with the villagers and enjoy the local delicacies. After brief rest, guests will try on some artworks; the ladies would try the traditional weaving while the gentlemen will create centong or spoon from coconut shell. Afterwards, guests visit the locals' garden to learn about the crops and herbs grown in the area. The visit ends with guests creating their own traditional herbal medicine and enjoying it with the locals.
