Happy Saraswati day!
Today all Bali is celebrating Saraswati day!
Dewi Saraswati is generally referred to as the goddess of ‘Science & Knowledge’. The name Saraswati came from "Saras" meaning flow and "wati" meaning a women.
Saraswati is symbol of knowledge, and its flow (or growth). Saraswati day itself is celebrated by the Balinese people bringing offerings to their holy books and scrolls in their houses, while students celebrate it at school, usually in the morning, and the office-workers in their office.
The philosophy of Saraswati day is that the most important thing for human life is knowledge. ⠀

Sometimes guests asking about the risk of earthquake/tsunami in north Bali, the strength of BBC building structures.

Well, earthquakes in Indonesia happens every day and when you see news on TV that there was an earthquake in Indonesia it doesn't mean that we even know about it in Bali.

To questions regarding tsunami risk usual answer "the risk of a tsunami in the north Bali is minimal because the Bali sea is too shallow."

Decided to study it more closely and it happened to be an interesting reading, so want to share some info with you.

Conclusion: yes, the risk of a tsunami in north Bali exist but its probability is low. If in south Bali there is a risk of having tsunami with height up to 10 meters, north Bali may potentially witness 2-meter waves.
Specifically, Bondalem village has the advantage that it is protected from the east by the protrusion of the island from the neighboring Tejakula village, i.e. the risk of tsunami exists only in case of the earthquake occurs in the north of Bali sea (it happened in 1857 and 1917 with 2-meters waves).
About the strength of hotel buildings - we are sure that it exceeds the requirements for buildings located in potential earthquake-zone - bungalows stand on deep 8 paws instead of 4, our new 11-bedroom compound also meets all requirements
However, if strong earthquake happens (it would be better to be sure that it never happens, but if there is a risk, then it would be better to be aware of what to do) - it is better to be on the second floor of the building or move away from it so that the tiles from the roof do not fall on your head (this never happened, but it is better to know).

There is a certificate of hotel compliance with security measures in case of natural disasters. Here you may read which hotels have it in south Bali: https://www.tripsavvy.com/tsunami-ready-hotels-in-bali-1629121 . Not sure if the certificate is needed (another beautiful piece of paper on the wall), but there is an idea of installing in each room a "safety box" with life jackets, helmets, first-aid kit, rope, flashlight, bottle of fresh water and a bottle of strong alcohol. In my opinion it will be the best readiness for potentially possible surprises of nature.

Бывает гости спрашивают, какой риск угрозы землетрясения/цунами на севере Бали, устойчивость сооружений.
Обычно отвечаю, что "риск цунами на севере острова минимален так как море Бали слишком мелкое".
Решил покопаться в этом вопросе поглубже. Занимательно.
Вывод который сделал - да, риск возникновения цунами на севере острова присутствует, правда если на юге возможная высота волны 10 метров, то на севере только 2 метра.
Конкретно у деревни Бондалем есть преимущество в том, что она прикрыты со стороны востока выступом острова со стороны соседней деревни Теджакула, т.е. риск цунами существует только при землетрясении именно на севере от острова (случалось в 1857 году и 1917 как раз с высотой волн 2 метра).
За крепость строений спокоен - бунгало стоят на глубоких 8 лапах вместо 4, в новое строение закатали такое количество арматуры что тоже спокоен..
Тем не менее, при сильной тряске (лучше пусть такого не случится, но если риск существует, то надо знать что делать) лучше или быть в доме на втором этаже или отойти от него, чтобы черепица с крыши не упала на голову (опять же, такого не случалось, но лучше знать).

Существует сертификат оценки безопасности отеля на случай таких катаклизмов - какие отели получили данный сертификат на юге острова можно почитать тут (англ https://www.tripsavvy.com/tsunami-ready-hotels-in-bali-1629121). Не знаю на сколько нужен сам сертификат (еще одна красивая бумажка на стене), но возникла идея установить в каждом номере "сундук безопасности" со спасжилетами, касками, аптечкой, веревкой, фонариком, бутылкой пресной воды и бутылкой чего то крепкого. По-моему это будет лучшей готовностью к потенциально возможным сюрпризам природы.
