Mama Jean is a lady who love’s to teach Swimming and Surf Life Saving

Jean Burling is her name and to us she is affectionately known as “Mama Jean”. She has been traveling to Bali since 1979 and taught swimming and surf life saving skills throughout Indonesia for over 25 years. Mama Jean first came to Bali Garden in early 2000.
Since 2016 she began teaching Agus (Front Desk Supervisor) and the security team in swimming and continues to do so every time she comes back to Bali. Mama Jean is hoping that all the staff can join in the swimming lessons, because for her “swimming is very important, as we live on an Island surrounded by the water”
We at Bali Garden are so glad that Mama Jean has taught them so well and has also taught staff in rescue techniques in the ocean as well as the hotel pools. Thank you Mama Jean for the great work and passing on your skills so we can continue the training and create a safe environment for all ! Here as some photos of the security team and Agus (Front Desk Supervisor) in action.
