Our Journey Together

Our Journey Together

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. When the sun set, the vast skies were full of stars and the quietness of the night was only interrupted by the sound of the gamelan and a choir of crickets. The experience was overwhelming. When we met Gede Uliadnyana - now the General Manager of the Resort, then a budding local graduate from a hospitality college with whom we clicked immediately - we realized that this was the chance of a lifetime. We had always wanted to create something of beauty that would further economic development in the South and be a genuinely positive force for all those involved. This was it. Gede helped us find an abandoned five hectares of coffee plantation with some of the best views of the Island and wild open nature all around. We bought it, mortgaged our house in Europe to finance the investment, and never looked back. In the process, we were helped by many people in setting up the resort: local villagers who trusted us and came to work for us, guests who provided advice and feedback as well as Bali’s own star architect Popo Danes who created the initial design of the resort. Largely built with local workers, MMP opened in 2009 with just a handful of villas as foreseen by Popo’s master plan - a very low density to maximize privacy and protect the environment. We have stuck to this vision as the team gained experience and the plantation prospered. Popo’s former associate - Era Anastasia – took over as our chief architect some years ago and with her we revived ancient building techniques, erecting a bamboo hall, a unique bamboo Spa, and a front office that have won universal admiration. We have been able with friends to set up the Munduk Coffee company that exports the coffees from our rejuvenated plantation as well as the Munduk Foundation that supports the local Community. The past 13 years have been incredibly enriching and we are very proud to share this beauty with our guests. Our journey together has been incredibly challenging, we are delighted that MMP has pulled through the crisis and is in great shape to receive international guests again. Irene, founder
