Munduk Moding Plantation Nature Mountain Resort and Spa offers a wide range of facilities that will allow you to experience this beautiful part of the island in a way that you will never forget.
Enjoy our 18 meter infinity pool with a panoramic view of the rolling hills, Bali’s central mountains and the Java sea. On a clear day you have a view of more than 50 kilometers onto Java. You can take in the same view from our jacuzzi-deck. We are very proud that our infinity pool has been elected as the world's third top Infinity Pool by Asia Spa.
Munduk Moding Plantation is a working coffee plantation, but we also grow a wide variety of tropical fruits, vegetables and flowers. There is also a forest area, with bamboo growth and lotus ponds. You will be given a guided tour and receive a detailed map allowing you to explore MundukModing Plantation on your own. There are several hills on MundukModing Plantation and you can enjoy the views, enjoy a book from the library in one of our Bale Bengongs spread out over the plantation – these will be supplied with drinks should you get thirsty.Munduk Moding Plantation has been a coffee plantation for many decades, growing mainly Robusta with some Arabica, but maintenance was poor. It was purchased by present management in September 2007 and sustainable agriculture was introduced on the plantation covering a wide variety of fruits (e.g. papaya, strawberries, pomolo, apple, orange) and vegetables (e.g. beans, lettuce, chili, potato), including some mountain rice. Popo Danes, the much decorated Balinese architect, designed the boutique hotel in a unique Balinese style specifically developed for this hill station. Our master plan foresees a low density of development to maximize privacy and the feeling of being close to nature. The first buildings were completed in 2009 and MundukModing Plantation celebrated its ceremonial opening on 28 June 2009.
To help you truly unwind and discover North Bali's fascinating nature and culture, Munduk Moding Plantation (MMP) provides the following facilities to our guest:
In addition to the “MMP experience” which is included in your room price, there are a number of exciting activities which we can arrange for you:
As part of our mission to help our guests discover the nature and culture of this beautiful part of the Island, we offer "The MMP experience" to all of our overnight guests. The "MMP experience" is a programme of tailor made activities that is included in your room price. It offers you a daily programme from which you can select those activities that appeal to you – that is, if you do not want to simply enjoy the natural environment of our plantation on your own.
At the heart of the programme are a number of unique participative activities that reveal a particular part of North Bali's hill station culture. These include:
The programme varies every day and we typically try to schedule a late morning and early afternoon activity.
Depending on occupancy, we extend the programme further by including activities such as Basic Balinese wood carving and gamelan making.
On Sunday afternoons you can observe our own traditional Balinese dance class – we provide training and attire for the local girls who find this activity very attractive (we have some 70 pupils). It is followed by an English class for the kids. The dancers best get to perform in our restaurant from time to time.
In addition to the activities, we have a guided morning trek on the plantation of about 45 minutes at which our guides explain the many flowers, plants and crops and take you to our vegetable garden, one of our garden temples, our forest area and a spring. The route varies every day and can be adapted to your wishes and levels of fitness.
For those of you who would like to visit Bali's central lakes – which are actually the calderas of extinct volcanoes – and the Munduk waterfall or alternatively, the famous Ulun Danu temple, the Botanical Garden or the local market at Candikuning, there are two shuttle services to these nearby locations which leave in the morning. This gives you a chance to explore our very interesting neighborhood.
In the afternoon we serve afternoon tea and coffee with homemade Balinese cake at our pool side.
In the late afternoon and evening we have a movie programme in our upstairs lounge; first for kids (at 17.30) and then for adults (at 21.00) where we show some of the best nature productions made in the past years on a big screen.
Meanwhile, outdoors, we light a bonfire – sitting around the fire with a drink, listening to the cicadas and looking at the distant lights near the shoreline and the impressive night sky filled with countless stars is truly one of the best experiences you can have at MMP.
The "MMP experience" provides you with a menu of choices that will make your stay more fulfilling and it complements the wide variety of facilities and activities that we also offer to all our guests.
The attached programme click here for a typical week helps you visualize what the "MMP experience" looks like – you'll receive the daily programme every evening in your room to help you make your choices for the coming day.
