“The extraordinary tourism potential of Bali is not only in its beautiful nature; through Varuna, we offer an unforgettable experience with international-class attractions that blend underwater shows with mermaids, theatrical performances infused with local wisdom, attracting tourists from both domestic and international markets. Varuna introduced to add value to Bali’s tourism, garnering international attention,” said Alex.

Showcasing Balinese Culture

In addition to offering a unique and compelling experience, Varuna also combines Balinese local culture with collaborations between international and local artists. This collaboration brings authentic cultural elements into the performance, creating a dynamic fusion of traditional Balinese art with modern theater experiences, enriching the overall immersive underwater journey.

“We have collaborated with several renowned artists in Bali to bring the world-famous Balinese ambiance, and we hope Varuna can set a benchmark for world-class performances in Indonesia,” added Hans Manansang, Director of Marketing at Taman Safari Indonesia Group.
