Behind Our Scenes….Meet Dodol!

At The Deck Café & Bar at Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa, we always get comments from our friends and guests, “where did you find your amazing team?!” They are pretty outstanding, and work so hard with so much care for all of our guests. So we thought we should share the human side of the smiley faces that distract you from that beautiful Mount Agung view. Starting with Dodol…. Dodol is a little local gem we found years ago when Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa opened. Not many know this, but he worked as a housekeeper for a year when he finished school, his second job after growing up seaweed farming with his family for as long as he can remember. Dodol was born and raised in Jungut Batu Village, but eventually grew itchy feet to get off the Island and venture out to work on the cruise ships for almost four years! There he cultivated his memories of traveling the world as a restaurant cleaner, working his way up to assistant server. All the while traveling to his most memorable places such as California, partying in Barcelona (lucky man!), New Orleans, Japan, and Dubai. Wow, this guy has been to more places than even some of the savviest of travelers! Eventually like every good romance story goes, Dodol’s heart lead him back to Nusa Lembongan to marry the love of his life, with his happiest ever memory being the day his little boy was born. As for work, he is happiest working with his colleagues and always having a good laugh together at The Deck, not taking life too seriously. They especially like to play tricks on the Western managers by getting the ones who don’t speak Bahasa Indonesian to say “apparently” good words and of course end up going around saying the naughty ones…. Cheeky guys.


Please come by and meet Dodol and our fabulous team, and don’t worry, they only play their tricks on those who ask for them! They welcome the challenge.
