The activities of making banten or offerings to be dedicated to God become an attraction for tourists at Puri Maharani Hotel. This cultural activity of the Hindu community in Bali is indeed regularly carried out every day, not deliberately packed into tourist attraction. In fact, it is much favored by hotel guests. 

The activities of majejahitan (making the offerings) and arranging them are very interested for guests of this hotel. Other than seeing, they also try to make it,” said Operations Manager Ni Wayan Cici Suriastini.

Cici Suriastini, on the sidelines of the assessment of Green Hotel on Monday (Sep. 25) said that the activity to prepare the oblations is usually carried out in the afternoon by the owner of the Puri Maharani Hotel with her family. The oblations are made from banana leaf and various kinds of colorful flowers for the offerings on the following day. “When the afternoon comes, tourists are waiting on the terrace of the pavilion to witness the cultural activities of Balinese people,” she explained.

Various types of local plants growing in the area also become an attraction. For instance, there are rare plants of old age and even have existed before this hotel was established. “We are grateful that Puri Maharani Hotel has been incorporated in the green hotel program through which we are also getting direct coaching related to the realization of the eco-friendly hotel not only to maintain the sanitation and nature conservation in the company but also to maintain relationship with the community in the hotel environment,” she said.
