Date of stay: September 2017Trip type: Travelled as a couple
The views from Puri Alam are fantastic (I think that goes for all accommodation with a clear view in Munduk) and are better the higher you go, though even though the infinity pool is on the bottom level it's still a beautiful sight.
The location is good, it's probably just on the edge of the main road but as Munduk is so small it takes just a couple of minutes to walk down the road anywhere. We found a great place to eat just 30 seconds away, and the Eco Café is probably 2 or 3 minutes.
The facilities are OK - they're just a little run down in places. One of the walls in our room had damp and the walls of the pool look a little green (though the pool is still nice to chill in/by and I don't think anywhere else has an infinity pool with that view). The bed was fine and so was the shower.
There's no wifi in the rooms (possibly there is if you're in a higher one near the restaurant area) and in fact we struggled with any signal as we were down by the pool. The wifi is strongest in the restaurant.
We didn't have breakfast at all but did go to the restaurant once. There's stunning views and the prices are comparable to the other gurungs and homestays in Munduk.
The staff are able to organise taxi day trips to the sights around, taxis on to your next stop, and provide a map and route to the nearby waterfalls and other walks. Be aware that for the waterfall walk you must pay 10,000 Rupiah (about 60p) at each waterfall which goes to the village whose land it is on. We weren't informed of this so didn't know if it was a scam or not at first, but it is genuine.
The accommodation is more expensive than many others in Munduk but at the price you get the infinity pool so it depends on our budget and what you are looking for.
Room Tip: The views will be better the higher you are, fewer steps to climb to go up to the road, and...
