Anniversary Celebrations at Menjangan Dynasty Resort
In conjunction with our 2nd anniversary, we celebrated in style with an array of different activities. On the day itself, we held a small tumpeng ceremony for all staff members and our management team. A tumpeng is a traditional Indonesian cone- shaped rice dish surrounded by meat, vegetables and spicy condiments. It is typically served at special occasions, whereby the most senior person in attendance is given the honour of cutting the top off the cone.
In the spirit of giving back to those less fortunate, Menjangan Dynasty Resort also pledged to renovate the home of a lady suffering with mental health issues. The woman in question was initially discovered by Solemen Indonesia, a locally registered non-profit foundation. She was found in an extremely distressed state and was chained to the floor of an empty room. Our team immediately took charge to do some essential repairs and make her room more habitable while she received the appropriate medical care.
Menjangan Dynasty Resort would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support over the past two years. An extra special mention goes out to our partners Bali Hai Adventures for providing land and water activities, along with Ambiente Spa for helping indulge our guests with nurturing body and beauty treatments. These exceptional services have helped us create the ultimate glamping experience on the island of Bali.
To celebrate this special second year with you, we have prepared some GREAT DEALS that are just too good to resist. Simply BOOK DIRECT to enjoy extra benefits! Check out these exclusive deals at www.mdr.pphotels.com.
Menjangan Dynasty Resort Supports International Coastal Clean Up
On Saturday, 15th September 2018, in partnership with the Bali Hotels Association, Menjangan Dynasty Resort participated in the International Coastal Clean Up, a worldwide environmental initiative to raise awareness about the cleanliness of the beach and sea. On the day, resort staff members along with a group of Clean Menjangan Island activists gathered early to collect rubbish and debris from the seashore.
The trash records from all around Menjangan Island were sent to the Ocean Conservancy Board, which compiles data from all over the world. This information will be used by the Ocean Trash Index to raise awareness, identify debris or unusual trash hotspots and advise on policy solutions to reduce water/marine pollution.
The cleaning of Menjangan Island is not limited to just once a month. Menjangan Dynasty Resort together with Clean Menjangan Island, a non-profit organization, schedules a monthly general clean up activity on the island and surrounding beach environment. This is a fun event for staff and the local community that also serves to educate people about proper waste management.
Explore North-West Bali with Pasir Putih Dive Centre
Pasir Putih Dive Centre has introduced an uplifting new day tour that explores the beauty of North-West Bali. This excursion includes a visit to the Banyumala Waterfall, Jatiluwih Rice Terraces and Ulun Danu Temple. A stop is also made at the local Bedugul Market prior to visiting Munduk Village to enjoy lunch with a spectacular view. A final stop at the Banjar Hot Springs provides a relaxing conclusion to this insightful day out.
Menjangan Dynasty Resort hosted a Blood Donation Event on Thursday, 20th September for all staff members in collaboration with the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI). Numerous bags were collected during the event to boost supplies currently stored at a regional blood bank located at Sanglah Hospital. This initiative was part of the resort’s annual corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme, which is all about giving back to the local community and helping those in need. As most of its team are already registered as blood donors, this well-meaning activity was also held to celebrate Menjangan Dynasty Resort’s anniversary.
Munduk and Melanting Waterfalls
Munduk and Melanting waterfalls are among Bali’s most scenic, located within Bali’s lush and forested central-northern highland region. The falls are a highlight feature of the namesake village of Munduk in Buleleng, North Bali, reachable after a 300m walk from the main road on which trekkers can enjoy soothing nature sights and sounds along a forest route. Only a short trek north from Munduk is Melanting waterfall, which offers similar features.
Cool mists and the rushing sound of water greet you upon reaching the Munduk waterfall. Here you can wade into the rocky pool for a cold dip. A further (often dirt to slightly muddy) trek towards the Melanting waterfall leads you through a lush forest with rivers and nature calls before a bridge that actually traverses over the fall’s peak. Definitely for nature lovers, it’s all about venturing into Bali’s ‘wild side’ and these two falls serving as your prize.
At an altitude of approximately 850m above sea level, the Munduk and Melanting waterfalls neighbour local clove and coffee plantations that are also a sightseeing feature of this region. A
Welcome to a PARADISE on earth. When you look for a place where you can forget the outside world, stay at Menjangan Dynasty Resort. It’s a place to relax and to enjoy life. The whole place is made with a lot of love for details and design. The room concept is exceptional. It gives you a feeling of being very close to the nature but still on a high luxury level. I stayed 8 nights in the resort. I had excellent food during that time and visited several times the SPA. All perfect!! All staff was very friendly and always tried to support as much as possible. The dive and activity center, managed by Bram, is a place to go. I booked several activities via him and everything was organized in a professional way. I definitely recommend to stay at Menjangan Dynasty Resort. I plan already my next stay at this lovely place. Jarzi, Germany
We were there for 5 nights, and LOVED every second. The “tent” that is so charming with all facilities, and the surrounding with wonderfull sunset. Fantastic pool and a great SPA. We had the romantic dinner on the beach one night to celebrate my birthday, an evening never to forget! The Staff is Amazing, always smiling and helping. And the food is simply Perfect.

My cousin and I stayed for 3 nights and we had a fantastic time! The rooms are beautiful, each having their own balcony and amazing outlook across the bay to the surrounding mountains. They are a tent, but they are heavy duty and have solid floor, proper bathrooms and air con! The staff at the resort are amazing!! So professional, polite and helpful! The coffee is amazing!!! I had two cappuccinos each morning! And we had the best eggs (Florentine and Benedict) we’d ever eaten! The Nasi Goreng is delicious too! Angel, Australia
