Puri Lumbung Cottages

Munduk | First Class

High in the cool Munduk hills, overlooking a valley of dense jungle, the Puri Lumbung Cottages eco-resort showcases an alternative side to Bali, away from the heat and the crowds. There is a strong emphasis on blending in with the natural beauty of the mountains, and the cottages nestle unobtrusively in lush, untamed greenery with views over the trees and out towards the Java Sea.

The cottages are refurbished ‘lumbungs’ (wooden villas raised on stilts), originally used to store rice and now providing a private haven for hotel guests. Each cottage has lovely details, from the carved doors to features around the windows and stair-rails, creating a surprisingly grand first impression from relatively simple facilities. The large, open windows and bamboo thatch make the interiors feel light; swathes of pale muslins hang over the beds, and further detailed carvings on the walls are set against natural, cream tiles, striking artwork and vibrant orchids. The effect is exotic, low-key comfort.

Once outside the sanctuary of your cottage the focus is on creating a relaxed and sociable atmosphere. Meals are served buffet-style and sometimes eaten around large, shared tables before everyone heads up to the bar to watch the sun sink behind the trees, or to the Victoria Hall to enjoy traditional Balinese dance and music.

During the day, you can tailor your activity level to suit your energy. If you’re feeling active, there are trekking and bike-hire options allowing you to explore the surrounding hills, but for the days when you want to take it easy you can relax with a spa treatment or two or join an early-morning yoga class in the Mustika Hall as the dawn breaks over the forest.

We Say
Rustic relaxation focused on wellbeing and relaxation, with a friendly and sociable vibe.
