Facilities, which are under continuing improvement as means come to hand, include an outdoor, covered stage (10 x 5 x 4.5 m) with concrete floor and basic flood lighting; concrete uncovered area (20 x 5 m); small plunge pool; garden; meeting areas; rooftop (28 x 5 m).
We have Wi-Fi but it’s not like high-speed broadband. If you’re a gamer or other heavy data user, we suggest that maybe Sanggar O wouldn’t be optimal for you.
SIM cards can be purchased cheaply and easily at the airport and many other locations, including near the sanggar. Data rates are not expensive. We strongly urge you to buy an Indonesian SIM card when you arrive.
However, if you come from a country that locks phones (such as the USA), you could perhaps arrange roaming before you leave, although this is not optimal because of weird connectivity and lack of access to apps that make life a little easier (or more interesting). You could also buy a cheap smartphone here for around USD 200 or EUR 180 that will mean you aren’t stranded in between WiFi hotspots. That will be good for your (and our) peace of mind and security.
Facilities of the sanggar
We provide basic accommodation at Indonesian standards in keeping with the theatrical tradition of the archipelago, which seems to be more communal than that of most other nations. That is, shared accommodation is the norm. Private rooms can be made available, depending on the circumstances.
