Where Nature creates Art.
Munduk Moding Plantation is where Bali’s skies blend with the water of the infinity pool, the Bali Sea and the towering volcanoes in Java. Where nature creates art. A hideaway nestled in a working coffee plantation surrounded by jungle. Here the real Bali is alive.
Designed by award winning Bali architects, Popo Danes and Era Anastasia, the villas and suites at Munduk Moding Plantation marry key features of Balinese architecture with a modernist tradition, adapted to the environment of this hill station. Munduk Moding Plantation is a hideaway for those who are looking for something different. Surrounded by tropical forest, it is an Eco-Luxury Nature Resort and Spa located in North Bali offering stunning views, luxury comfort, and intimacy.
Munduk Moding Plantation was established with the idea that a close relationship and integration between human, nature, and the environment, are the key aspects in dealing with the environmental stresses and pressures on the island due to the rapid development of Bali tourism over the years. Munduk Moding Plantation strongly adapts the basic principles of Tri Hita Karana teaching into tourism where it should lead to genuinely sustainable tourism that is economically, socially, and environmentally viable.
It implies that we need to develop projects that maintain the inhabitants’ quality of life, protect the unique culture, and the natural environment while guaranteeing economic resources for the Balinese. With these ideas in mind, it allows people to discover one of the most exceptional scenery and locations in the Bali hills while supporting local communities to live decently and protecting the natural richness of the area from undue human impact.
These basic principles are in line with the founding philosophy of Munduk Moding Plantation, namely to introduce high-end tourism to an untouched part of the Island in a way that supports the environment, the people who work at the hotel as well as the local community. As the hotel became more popular over the years, it has been able to provide more support and the activities of the Foundation were significantly extended.
Munduk Moding Plantation is built on a coffee plantation and we are trying to preserve, as best as we can, the natural resources and the beautiful landscape in this area which, certainly compared to the South of the Island, has very limited international tourism.
We want to embark on a journey to improve day by day and year after year our hotel’s efficiency and to reduce to the maximum extent our impact on the environment. We have chosen to become Green Globe Member with this in mind. We have fully involved our staff in this decision and also provide information to our guests who are invited to participate:
Water conservation, energy conservation, reduction of pollution, and waste management information is available for guests and they are invited to support us.
Staff is trained in environmental management issues.
MMP welcomes all suggestions on how our sustainability practices can be improved with real interest.
MMP work closely with neighbour association to improve awareness on tourism sustainability.
The development of sustainable tourism includes respect of economic, environmental, and social values. The economic factor is important: the company must generate good salaries and benefits for those employed and remunerate the capital that has been invested in it. Environmental concerns have become an important issue around the world for the 15 last years. But the respect of local populations is often put aside in order to facilitate the growth of tourism.
Since its creation, Munduk Moding Plantation has been very concerned about the future of the local community and has worked very closely with them. The management team consists of locals who are particularly aware of and sensitive to this challenge. In MMP we try as hard as we can to not turn upside down local inhabitants’ way of life and culture. Indeed, we make sure to know local community’s concerns about our activities and know their real needs in order to provide a contribution to improve their quality of life. Furthermore, we make every effort possible to sensitize guests about the local culture so as to ensure that they have some understanding and respect for it.
