Dangin Mangkalan Homestay

Balinese hospitality and spotless rooms

More on Munduk

Walking into the small manicured garden at Dangin Mangkalan Homestay, we were warmly welcomed by the kind elderly owners with coffee, fruit, biscuits and cake — friendly Balinese hospitality at its finest.

Travelfish says:

Positioned down a short, steep lane on the north face of the ridge, the small homestay offers six immaculate rooms overlooking the valley below.

Four rooms occupy a two-storey brick building facing the valley and the other two border the garden along the side, yet still have views. Rooms are bright, but a tad stuffy in the afternoon when the sun beats down—there’s no air-con or fan, but it cools down considerably in the evenings. Upstairs rooms share a balcony and not surprisingly having the better views, however you’ll have to pay a bit more for the privilege. Comfortable beds sport mozzie nets, colourful linens, and cosy blankets for cool Munduk evenings. A bedside table with a lamp and a bench to keep your bag off the floor are the meagre furnishings, but rooms are large enough for an extra bed if needed. Bathrooms are better in the two-storey building, but all are very clean and the hot-water shower is strong and plentiful. Furnished balconies bring the living room outside.

Rooms are away from the road so there’s no traffic noise, but as it’s surrounded by local homes, the sounds of village life early in the morning may disturb light sleepers (read noisy roosters) — bring earplugs. The included breakfast is served in the small attached restaurant with a choice of Western toast, Indonesian nasi goreng or Balinese cakes. Free coffee and biscuits are available anytime on request. You’ll find better views in Munduk, but the hospitable family here really make the place and put the ‘home’ in homestay. A little polite bargaining will save you money in low season.

Sally spent twelve years leading tourists around Indonesia and Malaysia where she collected a lot of stuff. She once carried a 40kg rug overland across Java. Her house has been described as a cross between a museum and a library. Fuelled by coffee, she can often be found riding her bike or petting stray cats. Sally believes travel is the key to world peace.
