Dive into the depths of Varuna, Indonesia’s inaugural underwater theatrical show at Taman Safari Bali. Combining culinary finesse with Balinese culture, this unique experience unfolds amid captivating performances and marine life conservation efforts, promising an unforgettable journey beneath the waves.
Taman Sari Bali, the island’s renowned wildlife park, is bringing the beauty of the underwater world closer to guests, blending culinary artistry with a truly captivating showcase of Balinese culture.
In December 2023, the park officially launched ‘Varuna’, Indonesia’s first underwater theatrical show, as part of The Exciting Marine Safari Bali’s 2024 development plan.
Located within Taman Safari Bali in the Gianyar Regency of Bali, Varuna invites visitors to indulge in an elegant dining experience, whilst immersing themselves in a world-class theatrical performance.
Varuna’s narrative artfully unfolds through a charming combination of paper animation, wayang kulit (shadow puppetry), and enchanting performances by globally-recognised Technical Advisor, Peter Wilson.
Alexander Zulkarnain, Vice President of Media Event & Digital at Taman Safari Indonesia stated, “Bali is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations due to its beautiful seas, with more than 4.5 million tourists visiting Bali in 2023. Taman Safari Bali aims to showcase the beauty of Bali’s underwater world through Varuna, providing a dining experience while witnessing Indonesia’s first underwater theatrical show for domestic and international tourists.”
With Taman Safari Bali housing over 2,500 animals from various parts of the world, Varuna seamlessly integrates marine life conservation and sustainability into its performances, supported by technology and captivating displays.
Infusing local wisdom into this unique underwater experience, Varuna collaborates with both international and local artists to enhance guests’ oceanic journeys. Hans Manansang, Director of Marketing at Taman Safari Indonesia Group, expressed the hope that Varuna would set a benchmark for world-class performances in Indonesia.
Throughout the coming year, The Exciting Marine Safari Bali aims to transform into an international underwater tourism complex, attracting foreign tourists and serving as a marine life education center.
