“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

It is a dance about Ramayana. But the hype created for the show was very big. It doesn't attracted me very much. Instead you can better go around the temple which offers a panoramic view of the sea. It is not worth for the 10$ paid for the show.

“Captivating - keeps your attention the whole time”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The Kecak story was entertaining. The performers were really good, stayed in character, the men who used their vocals in the background were also really in tune and sync. I loved the costumes. Definitely worth seeing. But make sure to get there early so you get actual seats, otherwise you are sitting cross legged on the cement and are elbow to elbow to the person next to you. On the plus side, if you sit on the ground, you literally are next to the performers and cant have a better view than that.

“Brilliant, traditional experience!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This is a really great way to see traditional Balinese dancing etc. The theatre is situated in the top of the mountain looking out to sea so whilst watching the show you're also looking out over the sunset, it's so beautiful! The show is really great too, a real traditional experience!

“A must see”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Go early to get a good seat and i prefer seat that is high above so you can see the whole dance and also the sunset. Can capture great pictures or video too. Don't get seated on the first few row coz you can't see the whole thing
