I’m in Bali and it’s cold, and wet. It’s not exactly what comes to mind when you think of Bali, and I’m not experiencing some kind of freak weather conditions.
We both agreed that we couldn’t come to Bali without staying somewhere with an infinity pool and so after a bit of TripAdvisoring, we booked two nights at MMP. The hotel is in the hills of North Bali, hence the cold temperatures. I was perhaps a little ignorant and it didn’t even cross my mind that somewhere in Bali might not be hot..
We booked the ‘one bedroom pool villa’ which comes with a butler and private infinity pool. The room is open plan and filled with dark wooden furniture, a huge bath and separate shower.
The little touches are what I love about MMP. Two chocolates were placed on our bed next to a piece of paper with ‘A bitter love story from Bali’ on it. We have a mobile phone if we need to ring Gede, our butler, and the hotel offers free trips to Munduk waterfall and guides around the plantation.
MMP and the surrounding area remind me a bit of Wales, the hotel is in a remote area which means the views from our room and pool are lovely. We can step out of our villa right onto the plantation and roam around the coffee and strawberry plants.
We went off to explore Munduk waterfall with Gede and arrived to rain thundering down around us. He strolled off into the forest, told us to wait for him and promptly arrived back with three huge leaves to use as umbrellas. The waterfall isn’t touristy and with the rain pouring down there was a wild atmosphere to the place. Some of the more brave of us went for a dip..
I’d highly recommend MMP to anyone who’s looking for somewhere away from everything. The service was outstanding (Gede even picked ginger he’d grown to make us some tea!) and the villas are beautiful. In comparison to similar accommodation in Bali, MMP is the most reasonable in terms of what you get for your money, until next time Bali!
