The History of Puri Lumbung
The ‘lumbung’ or rice granary is part of Bali’s unique cultural heritage. Traditionally used to store rice under the protection of the goddess Dewi Sri, lumbungs are now seldom used because farming techniques have changed.
We discovered several disused lumbungs averaging 80 years old, and with minor adjustments adapted them into simple but charming accommodation. Of course we held a special ritual to transfer Dewi Sri back to the rice fields, but her gentle energy remains.
Puri Lumbung is set in the cool mountain air where fans and air con are unnecessary. Our compound is designed in the traditional Balinese manner modeled on the sacred human form with shrines at the head, guest accommodation at the heart and other facilities at the foot.
The first of its kind in Bali, Puri Lumbung is more than a hotel – it is an eco-tourism project dedicated to the discovery, conservation and enhancement of the unspoiled area around Munduk. The people of Munduk Village are involved as much as possible in caring for our guests. We not only provide employment, but engage them in activities that maintain the tropical rain forest and preserve water. We also encourage the young villagers to keep their cultural heritage alive with traditional dance, music and crafts.
