MMP is born out of a friendship between our talented and dedicated Bali team and its Western owners. Our common vision and resolve is to create a uniquely luxury destination that wows our guests and shows to the people of the area that sustainable tourism is in their interest, creating employment and prosperity, respecting and supporting the local culture and promoting a better environment. In this sense, MMP is a mission and work of love for us all. Come and stay with us and you will feel it. We are incredibly grateful to have been supported in this journey by our guests, the local villages and Bali’s own star architect Popo Danes who designed the resort with the brilliant Era Anastasia. We are incredibly proud that this approach has allowed us to be certified as a 5 star hotel and receive many awards, but also to help run the largest solar and water water installations in our area in the North of Bali, bring back coffee growing at scale, support the fine arts and culture while creating well paid jobs for 150 families in the region. As owners, we meet up with our Indonesian team at least twice a year at the plantation to strengthen our bonds and friendship and review progress; we are in touch every week – often every day. We have seen families being formed at MMP, children born and people spreading their wings as they take on new responsibilities – this has been tremendously enriching experience for all of us.
When traveling with our family in Indonesia in 2007, we discovered the hill country around Munduk and were enchanted by its natural beauty. We muck dived and watched dolphins in the Bali Sea at dawn, explored ancient towns in the late morning, feasted on a “rijsttafel” over lunch, and then canoed in the crater of an extinct volcano before hiking back through the rainforest and exploring some stunning and deserted temples in the jungle.
Munduk Moding Plantation (MMP) believes that a close relationship and integration between humans, nature, and the environment (Tri Hita Karana), is key for dealing with the environmental stresses and pressures on the island due to the rapid development of Bali tourism over the years.
