To start planning your holiday to Munduk Moding Plantation Nature Resort and Spa
Munduk Moding Plantation is a charming eco-lodge located in the north of Bali. This luxury nature resort is close by to Munduk hill station and Bali's central lakes, and is surrounded by lush jungle, coffee trees and rice fields.
Located on a working coffee plantation and nearby to Bali's central lakes, Munduk Moding Plantation is an excellent choice for guests who want to get off the beaten track and explore a different side to the island.
Each of the villas and suites at the hotel is hidden away amongst the lush vegetation, guaranteeing privacy away from the crowds. The villas all offer incredible views of the hillsides which are covered with rice fields, coffee trees and lush jungle. The sunsets are spectacular! There's a choice of 1, 2 and 4-bedroom villas, as well as private pool villas.
What makes Munduk Moding Plantation such a superb choice for guests is its extensive selection of activities. Guided treks are arranged in the morning around the property, go on a horse riding trip around the lakes and countryside after lunch, and round the day off with a warming evening bonfire. When you're in such a remote area, the night sky and its countless stars is unbelievable!
For guests wanting to really escape the crowds and explore Bali's great outdoors, then Munduk Moding Plantation is a wonderful choice. It is a much more rustic property compared to hotels on Bali's south coast, but it's got bags of charm and character, and allows you to see a completely different side to the island.
Munduk Moding Coffee Plantation offers charming villas and suites with traditional Balinese architecture and interiors. There are three suites which are located in the coffee plantation itself, close by to the hotel's restaurant, and nine spacious villas. The one bedroom pool villa is excellent for honeymooners or couples looking for something a little more luxurious, whilst the two and four bedroom villas work really well for larger parties.
The Garden Suites are located in the coffee plantation, close to the MiMPi Restaurant, and offer a private terrace and an en-suite bathroom. These are much smaller than the villas, approximately 35m squared.
|One Bedroom Villa||
The one bedroom villas are very spacious (55m squared) with tropical hardwood parquet floors, a luxurious four-poster bed and charming local artworks. The villa has large glass doors which provide wonderful views across the surrounding landscape, as well as a secluded outdoor terrace amongst the coffee plants.
|One Bedroom Pool Villa||
The one bedroom pool villa comprises a generous living and dining room, a separate bedroom and a heated swimming pool with a stone terrace seating area. The views from the villa, the terrace and pool are of the rolling hills and the Java sea - they really are spectacular. The one bedroom pool villa is designed for couples who are looking for a truly tranquil treat in absolute privacy. Meals (should you so wish) will be served in the dining room with stunning view of mountains, volcanoes, orchards and the skyline, and private butler service is available throughout your stay.
|Two Bedroom Coffee Villa||
Located in a private building surrounded by mature Arabica coffee trees, the Two Bedroom Coffee Villa overlooks the rolling hills and the distant sea. It is set aside from the other villas and is located halfway between the main pool and the vegetable garden. The coffee villa is an excellent option for a family or a group of friends. It consists of two large suites and an expansive private terrace at the top floor with panoramic views of the hills and the Bali sea. The first suite, located on the ground floor has twin beds, a sitting area and bespoke locally handcrafted furniture. The second suite is located on the first floor and has a king bed, as well as a private terrace. Both suites are connected through an external stair case.
|Two Bedroom Pool Villa||
The two bedroom pool villa is set aside on a separate part of the plantation and consists of two separate bedroom villas, a living room and dining room, a heated private pool and a large terrace. The landscaping ensures that the area is secluded from the other villas whilst maximising the views of the sea, the jungle and surrounding hills. As well as a private butler, the two bedroom pool villa comes with a complimentary minibar (replenished once daily) and laundry service (2 items per guest per day).
|Four Bedroom Pool Villa||
The Four Bedroom Pool Villa is a superb choice for larger parties and is located close to the restaurant with easy access by golf cart. As well as a spacious living room and dining room, the villa also comes with a jacuzzi and stunning infinity pool which offers spectacular views across the rolling hills.
The rooms are located in an adjacent two floor building with the two top floor rooms situated on the same level as the terrace and living room. Internal and external staircases connect the top floor to the lower floor. The villa can accommodate up to 10 guests when the sitting area is transformed in an additional bedroom.
Children are welcome at Munduk Moding Plantation and with such a fantastic array of activities to get involved in, there is plenty to keep them occupied, but there are no specific facilities except for babysitting.

Charlotte Winter (Staff)
This is a wonderful property located further out in rural Bali amongst a coffee plantation and is a great choice for guests wanting to get away from the crowds. If you're a fan of the great outdoors, there's lots to do here including bird watching, nature treks and horse riding. The property also boasts a beautiful pool to relax by. I was particularly taken aback by the incredible panoramic views - I could have looked out across the tropical rainforest for hours.
The property is much more rustic compared to hotels found in the south of the island, but it definitely has bags of charm and character, and it's great to see another side to Bali.
