    A must if you are near Uluwatu!
    What an amazing experience. I would highly recommend booking through a tour company to beat the queues and enjoy a personal guided tour. Our tour guide picked us up promptly, was friendly and very knowledgeable. The Kecak Fire Dance was very good, rather humorous in some sections. The temple, monkeys and sunset was well worth the visit. We booked dinner as well. The location of the restaurant was amazing, located right on the beach. The food was great, just be mindful of the fishbones if you have children or elderly persons with you.. All in all I would highly recommend this experience.

    Get here EARLY to get a ticket
    A very cool 45 minute event which is worth the - ridiculous - queue to get in. The show itself tells a story over 4 stages, and the highlight is of course the white monkey actor. Would recommend reading the leaflet provided for the information. Highly recommend getting here before 2-3pm to purchase a ticket for the show, as the crowds get ridiculous.

    Very touristy
    Decided last minute we wanted to see this show during our stay in Uluwatu. Our driver got us there around 4pm for the 6pm show. He arranged to get our tickets for us day off. We got there early and baked in the sun until the show started. I would show up a few minutes before to avoid sitting in the hard concrete for longer than necessary. They pack you in very tight together and fill in the walkways. The show was nice, chanting was magical. For me, I was uncomfortable sitting for so long, which affected my experience. There are monkeys but they didn’t bother me or others like they do at the money forests. No food inside so eat before you come.

    Interesting!
    Show lasted about 45 mins and best to purchase ticket online to secure seat. Else risk having tickets sold out or waiting for the later show. Great view of sunset too

    Good show
    Worth seeing if you like cultural history. This dance was based on Rayman. Note you may have bought the ticket for the performance but you need a separate one to enter the park. Get their early to get a seat with decent view of dance and sunset. 6pm show is you want to see sunset.

    A world class mythical show on Hinduism not to be missed!!
    With views of the southern sea, it's really enchanting, The crowd can be overwhming so do go early and get a nice seat and one with shade to avoid the sunset directly on your face. The entire show itself was entertaining from start to finish depicting the many gods of Hinduism. And the sunset as the show goes into night and the fire dance starts, it's a experience itself.
    Thankyou so much for your sharing. to guarantee the ticket you can book via kecakdancebali,com also. Hope you can visit us again

    What a neat experience!
    Fun fire dance! Very entertaining! My husband and I were even brought in at one point to dance with the dancers in front of hundreds of people. Highly recommend checking this out if you are already at the temple. 150K/person. Very fun and a neat experience!

    An absolute must
    This fire show and dance is an absolute must if you are visiting the Uluwatu temple. There are 2 shows one at 6 and the other at 7pm. Our driver managed to get the tickets for the 6pm show which was lovely as you can also witness the sun set. It is a very lively display of dance.

    Rich cultural experience in a breathtaking locale — but be prepared to wait!
    An unforgettable experience of another culture. As a tourist visiting from Canada, this was unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and I’d recommend it for that reason alone. There were two negatives that I have to note. 1) The seating is very uncomfortable, and you’re recommended to go and sit way early before the show to get a half decent spot — bring a cushion or something to sit on. 2) Buying online tickets was confusing and unclear, so we ended up buying tickets in person. We arrived an hour early to the ticket booth to ensure we got spots, waited in a zoo of a line, and this was in off season. Despite this, I still had to give it a five. The setting alone is worth a five — coliseum style seating overlooking the wide open ocean and one of the most majestic cliffsides you ever saw, watching the gorgeous sunset in plain view in real time with the performance unfolding in front of you. I have to street not to expect extremely elaborate acrobatic dancing, or magnificent tricks with dancing flames — this is not that. It’s the interweaving of the story with movement and chant (this group of forty men pretty much NEVER stops chanting for the entire hour!), and the playful nature of the presentation with plenty of audience interaction and personality that makes this experience so enjoyable.

    Dramatic and entertaining show
    Dramatic and entertaining show, especially the finale with dancing through flames. Difficult to know how authentic, and the nuanced Balinese dance moves were overwhelmed by the spectacle. The open air tiered seating was packed beyond capacity with tourists, even seating the last arrivals, after the performance started, in the aisles which seemed unsafe. Clouds obscured the sunset when I was there but I'm sure it is beautiful when conditions allow. I found the 70-man accompaniment tiresome and "gamelan" only in being percussion, so if this is your only gamelan experience I would suggest something else. It does make a nice excursion combined with the famous Uluwatu temple.

Extremely disappointing experience. They pack you in like sardines. Zero crowd control and safety in mind as they fill in every inch of the stadium even the exit rows. We arrived 1 hour early and selected to sit at the top row for breathing space as it was very hot and humid. 15 minutes into the show they were still letting people in and had people stand behind us, their legs pushing our backs. We could not enjoy the show and couldn’t wait to get out of there. Avoid this, big waste of time, just see the temple if you want to go here. The show is a scam/tourist trap

Stood in line for an hour to get “good seats”… doesn’t matter where you sit so don’t waste your time. We didn’t even get to see the temple because of the lines. Just walk in at show time. I repeat , DON’T stand in line! Line was hot and pushy and really miserable. Show is so annoying. There’s no music, just 70 guys making car trouble sounds. For the whole time…. Same sound. The fire is only for about 30 seconds at the end. They just kick burnt grass around. Really stupid. People were talking so loud around us too, there’s no crowd control. Not worth it at all. Do not be fooled.

A friend of mine recommended this place to visit and enjoy the temple surroundings and beautiful view over the ocean. I was very glad I came for that alone but was also pleasantly surprised that there was a show. I purchased a ticket for this and enjoyed it thoroughly. The entire thing is done by voice and the show is quite playful and fun. It lasted around 80 or so minutes and was well done.

One of the highlights of our trip.
I love Ramayana and I get to see the story in a different form
The energy of the singer singing straight for an hour was amazing.
Hanuman was scene-stealer

We bought tickets for the 7pm 60 minute show directly (via their website & WhatsApp) and it started pouring with rain at around 6pm. The info said guests often arrive around 6:30pm for the best seats and we knew that the shows still go ahead in the rain. We weren’t fussed about good seats so arrived just before 7pm as it was still heavy rain, thunder and lightening.
We only saw the last 10 minutes of the show because it had started early due to rain and the hosts seemed to be saying oh well, it’s raining, what can we do.
So if it does rain, my advice would be to arrive even earlier than planned! It rains a lot here, so we were surprised the info didn’t say that the show could start early due to weather.
They do provide ponchos in the rain.

A memorable and beautiful dance recital of Ramayana with depiction of abduction of sita by ravana. Hanuman's role was fabulous. There were more than 70 dancers male who vocalised the whole show. Not a single instrument was used. Amazing. Its normally performed at sunset. Fire in the title is when hanuman tail is set on fire and he sets ravanas palace on fire. Its a program one should never miss when in bali, Indonesia. Mesmerizing to say the least in an open air show room. Its a show of one hour duration. Don't miss. Our family of 6 from bangalore, india had a great time. Dr. Narayan Pratap bangalore india.
