Blessing by a Hindu Priest

Founded in the 15th century, the Petitenget Temple has an interesting legend. Petitenget literally means sacred box, and according to the legend, a travelling priest Dang Hyang Nirartha urged the shrine to be constructed to ward off evil spirits after he was entrusted with this important chest that he brought with him. The presence of this sanctuary is said to have given the surrounding locale a more tranquil atmosphere. This area is now popularly known as Seminyak and the beachfront close to the temple contains shopping sites.

A visit to the temple and a blessing from its Hindu priest (Pemangku) is an experience not to be missed, especially the classic Balinese sunset as seen from the shrine.

Turtle Sanctuary

The 500-metre-wide stretch of Seminyak beach in front of The Oberoi, Bali is visited each year by an endangered species of sea turtle - the Olive Ridley or Lepidochelys Olivacea. The Olive Ridley was named for the olive color of its heart-shaped shell, and is one of the smallest of the sea turtles with adults reaching up to 70 cm in length and weighing up to 50 kg.

Female turtles come ashore to lay a clutch of eggs between May and October, usually at night, which she then covers with sand and returns to the sea. Her job is done. The Oberoi, Bali safeguards the turtle eggs from predators by relocating the nest to a patch of sand within the hotel premises. After an incubation period of 45 - 50 days under the sand, baby turtles emerge from their ping-pong ball like shells. Newborn hatchlings are cared for at The Oberoi's saltwater turtle sanctuary where they are fed and become strong swimmers. When the baby turtles are between 10 days to 2 weeks old, we invite our guests to participate in releasing the baby turtles to the sea.

Period: May - October
Price: Complimentary

The Oberoi, Bali is proud to play a role in the legacy of turtle conservation on the island of Bali and we hope that you visit the turtle sanctuary while you are here and hope that some may even be released during your stay.
