My husband and I stayed at Munduk Moding Plantation during our August honeymoon.. We only stayed one night here, as we were exploring as much of Bali as we could, but knowing what we know now, we would have stayed here for the majority of our trip. This is the part of Bali one visits for tranquility and rejuvenation.
The location is just spectacular: perched on a moutainside overlooking lush vegetation. The grounds are beautiful and one can walk them at leisure or get a guided tour (note: there are a lot of stairs on the propery, so not an ideal place for those with physical limitations). There is a one hour complementary tour of the grounds included in your stay. The infinity pool was beautiful with a gorgeous backdrop. The water was a bit chilly, but we didn't mind a bit. We had the pool to ourselves. That is another thing - there are only 3 villas and 2 suites, so it was never crowded and we felt as though all guests are treated with extra special care. When we arrived, we were given leis and tea by the pool.
The villa was fantastic. We couldn't get enough of the view and we would open up the large windows and just listen to the birds and roosters and chanting coming from the hills. The bed is a good size and comfortable; there is a TV, minibar/fridge, big bath tub, lots of space, and I particularly liked the outdoor shower (there is both an indoor and an outdoor shower).
The Plantation also offers tours to various locations both in the area and further afield. If we had more time, we would have made a day trip, but we were limited for time so we got a driver to take us to the Munduk waterfall nearby (worth a look).
The food was Indonesian and Balinese fare and we quite liked it, especially the Indonesian breakfast. We ate our breakfast outside under the bale.
I highly recommend Munduk Moding Plantation if you are seeking out a quiet, peaceful, rejuvenating place. This is the Bali that I had hoped for, and if I am fortunate to return to Bali again, I will be returning to Munduk Moding.
