The cool thing about Munduk is the weather, its cool! If the heat and humidity of Kuta are getting you down, and Ubud just seems like another tourist trap, Munduk will be a breath of fresh air. There is a small selection of places to stay, enabling you to relax, take it easy, get used to the slow village pace of life and explore the mountain area, on the northern slopes.
Activities such as horse riding, yoga meditation, weaving classes, woodcarving, language classes and a multitude of trekking routes can be arranged at Puri Lumbung Cottages. You can still stay somewhere else and enjoy the activities.

There are also several mid-range homestays in the village. If you are planning to stay in Munduk, its a good idea to make a reservation as accomodation is limited.
A good alternative to staying in Munduk, but one that will leave you in the mountains, is Sanda Butik Villas, located in Sanda, close to Pupuan. This place is set inside a former coffee plantation and is a picture of tranquility.
