Jamu-Making Classes at InterContinental Bali Resort

InterContinental Bali Resort is pleased to introduce jamu-making classes to the activities available at ‘Inspirational Space’, exclusively for guests staying at Club InterContinental or in the Resort’s collection of Suites. Jamu is the name given to the blended Javanese medicinal tonics that are made from the many species of healing plants, herbs and spices, which grow in the fertile soil and vast areas of rainforest within the Indonesian archipelago. The jamu-making classes share the healing art, science and secret recipes for making these herbal compounds, which date back to the 9th century and have been passed down from grandmothers and mothers to daughters and granddaughters, generation after generation. The remedies, which claim to increase stamina, rejuvenate the skin, purify the blood, aid digestion, ease sore throats, fevers, headaches and stomach cramps, as well as helping blood circulation and curing numerous other ailments are sold on the streets of Indonesia by Javanese ladies. Wearing sarongs and conical hats, these women are distinguished by the huge baskets – filled with bottles of the concoctions –strapped to their backs. The many natural ingredients range from star anise, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, tamarind, ginger, lemongrass, honey and turmeric to the bitter leaves of soursop and papaya trees. Jamu is consumed by many local people on daily basis to maintain good health. InterContinental Bali Resort looks forward to welcoming guests at the jamu-making classes.
