After being over-heated in Tuban, we moved on to the Melanting Cottages in the mountains of Munduk where it was much cooler and it did rain some. They picked us up on time in Tuban and on the way to the hotel we were able to stop to see the Ulun Danu Temple / Bratan (which was one of the temples on our must-visit list).
The wooden cottages are quite large, plenty of room to spread out your suitcases. The bath was also spacious with an indoor sink and large counter plus a shower and toilet room open to a private outdoor garden surrounded by a stone wall. There was plenty of hot water. We saw very few insects, which was a plus.
It was not in close walking distance to town, but they set up transportation for us when ever it was needed. Their restaurant is very good for all meals. The staff was terrific and meet all of our needs. We were even given a discount on the price of our cottage because it was the low season which made it very affordable.
We wanted to hike around Lamblingan Lake, so they set up our transportation with a great driver that waited for us. You will need hiking shoes if you want to experience this. We really enjoyed the dugout canoe ride at the end. We also visited the Bhuddist temple and the hot springs for another day trip. If you want to get off the tourist path and cool down in the mountains, I would highly recommend this hotel but be sure and bring some long warmer clothes during the cooler rainy season.
