Included in your stay, is the Munduk Moding Plantation (MMP) Experiences Program – a series of tailor-made activities that allow you to dive deeper into the local culture and something that we were keen to take advantage of during our stay. We loved immersing ourselves in the wide variety of unique classes – such as learning to make Balinese offerings, playing the traditional Gamelan instrument, daily yoga, woodcarving and candle-making, as well as mastering the secrets of Balinese cooking. And for those star-crossed lovers, why not grab a blanket and enjoy a spot of star-gazing under the Bali skies for an out-of-this-world experience?
Where Nature Meets Art: Art Week Extravaganza
This year saw the first highly anticipated MMP Art Week. Over seven days, guests are treated to a selection of artistic activities and performances that celebrate Bali’s art scene. Sustainability is always at the forefront of the resort’s mantra, as they honour the island’s rich creative heritage. From inspiring talks by local artists and hands-on recycling workshops to mesmerising traditional dances – this yearly event is certainly one to put in your diary!
Coffee Enthusiasts Welcome
Proudly boasting its own coffee plantation, coffee lovers can experience the full ‘bean to cup’ journey as you are guided around the MMP estate. Walk through the lush grounds and see for yourself how their specialty Munduk Coffee is harvested and sample a variety of aromatic flavours on their coffee-tasting tour. We particularly enjoyed seeing how the process evolved and tasting some of the wide selection of beans on offer – even purchasing a few bags to brew up some of our own Munduk memories back at home!
A Sanctuary For The Soul
At Munduk Moding Plantation, you can do as much or as little as you please. And if relaxation is more your thing, their onsite spa is guaranteed to melt away all of your stresses. Let their trained therapists unwind your body and mind with their range of specialist treatments. Ranging from blissed-out traditional Balinese massages with essential oils to their signature coffee and chocolate scrub – prepare yourself for a totally rejuvenating experience that will leave you feeling like a brand new you!
Feast Like A King
Prepare to have your taste buds thrilled as you sample the tempting cuisine at MMP’s two enticing restaurants. Serving delicious fusion Asian and international fare with an Indonesian twist is the resort’s MiMPi Restaurant, where you can enjoy your meal alongside some of the best views on the island. Overlooking their award-winning infinity pool, savour the flavour of delicious dishes made with freshly picked ingredients from their own gardens. We were big fans of the braised Beef Rendang, slowly cooked in aromatic spices – and also the Kari Sapi Panggang (grilled tenderloin served in a curry sauce).
If you’re looking for an authentic taste of Balinese culture, head to Warung Bongkot – the resort’s second restaurant which has been delighting diners with their local specialities. We loved how northern Bali was celebrated in many of the dishes they served, and found the staff to be extremely knowledgeable in their recommendations. We enjoyed trying the Sate Pelecing (tender grilled pork kebabs) and North Bali Sampler, which had a selection of local favourites to try. And if you’re looking to spice things up, their Sambal Journey menu has eight different varieties for you to sample.
So if you’re ready to lose yourself in the untouched beauty of northern Bali, let Munduk Moding Plantation delight your senses and captivate your soul. This hidden gem is more than just a resort – it’s where luxury and adventure meet pure relaxation. Your unforgettable Bali getaway starts here!
