Balinese dance performances
Most performances are held in the evenings, however, you can also see some Barong Dance performances in the morning.
If you prefer to watch one of these Balinese dances performances in a hotel after a sumptuous dinner buffet, the Oberoi is recommended because of the beautiful beach front setting. More spectacular even are the Cave Nights at the Bali Cliff hotel: guests enjoy an excellent dinner buffet sitting in a large natural cave slightly above sea level and can watch a performance of the Kecak Dance on the beach below.
