Great value, solid rooms
Puri Sunny is the closest offering to the centre of Munduk village. On offer are atmospheric two-floor bungalows with terrific views — this is a place to bring a good book, some music with headphones, and a spare few days to just chill.
Some rooms are wooden upstairs and stone downstairs — we’d definitely go with the wooden upper offerings — while a couple of newer ones to the left are concrete and have less character. We booked online and were given one of the newer rooms, but they weren’t busy and the obliging staff happily let us shift to the wooden rooms.
The views here are really wonderful, particularly from room number five, though this one is also next to the kitchen, so you’ll get a touch more noise if they’re busy. You can also hear the water pumps turning on and off, as a few tanks are located just next to the bungalow. We had a night-time visitor scamper along the eaves of the room, but it was more afraid of us than we of it, we think, and once it spotted us it ran outside (it was a rat, or a large mouse, if we need to spell it out…)
The wooden rooms are more compact than the others, but include a desk and chair, mini-fridge, and a double bed with a mosquito net. We loved ours and particularly enjoyed the veranda with two comfortable chairs and a little table — order a drink or two from the kitchen and savour the views. No hammocks, sadly. They are spotlessly clean, and the bathrooms come with hot water showers, which you’ll need in Munduk’s lovely cool weather as much as you won’t need an air-conditioner (which you won’t get, either).
WiFi is available and back off the bungalows is a lawn area for the kids to run wild on. The restaurant has two floors and though the food is fairly standard Indonesian fare with a few Western basics, we enjoyed our three meals here overlooking Munduk’s sleepy main street — the sunset was amazing.
For the standard the prices are fair, but there is plenty of scope for bargaining, especially in low season.
