"Yet another polished hotel !!!"
Pemuteran is only a small fishing village with warungs , a few gift shops and traders but it is also possibly the quietest resort in the whole of Bali. It boasts accommodation of all standards and types. The Matahari must rate a the very top if that is the sort of hotel you are searching for. Superbly built in Balinese style it is superbly laid out in manicured grounds. It delivers exactly what a hotel of this standard should. Our only observation is that now, in the low season, it is , like most hotels in the area , quite quiet. We enjoyed our stay immensely after many weeks of travelling. Excellent management and staff.
"Most relaxing holiday in a superb hotel"
I arrived weary and tired from travelling it was already dark but the hotel looked very beautiful. The welcome from the staff set the tone for the rest of my stay, it was gracious personal and totally charming. Balinese decor creates an ambience which runs throughout. I found the architecture, statues and gorgeous gardens, the way in which the delicious food was presented so photogenic, even the most inept photographer cant fail. Sounds of the ocean and the birdsong add to a peaceful calm atmosphere which is never polluted by unwelcome noise. The Spa treatments were superb held in the most beautiful buildings and gardens. Yoga sessions were very enjoyable and of a high standard for both beginners and the more experienced. Perhaps it is the attention to detail delivered so effortlessly by the staff that makes this hotel very special. I really did not want to leave a week wasn't long enough.
"Who has stayed in a room with an outdoors Dragon Shower'"
The grounds were beautiful, the room was first rate and had, in addition to a very nice indoor tub and shower, it had an private outdoor patio with a carved stone Dragon Shower that was a treat. The Spa was first rate. I get frequent massages and this was right up there with the best. We also went snorkeling which was OK but make sure you check that you have all of your gear from the snorkeling main office because they don't carry anything spare on the boat. Also check and make sure they have enough of the right size life jackets since our boat did not.
"Perfect place for relax or escape."
Me & my husband choose this hotel last minute. We decide to stay ivernight as there are kots of major damage on the road, land sliding ada flood on the way back to denpasar. Really surprise they got our online booking which we book few minutes before arrive. I've been here many tines when Inwas child. This hotel always look gorgeous for me. Balinese architecture, style and ambience.. room were good, AC cold, nice welcome drink. The bath tub really big and outside shower look amazing. Maybe for some people look scary at night. Its really quiet night and peacefull. We had breakfast at front beach restaurant. Beautiful view and sound if the wave. We just had little problem. Water from bath tub not really hot, but we didnt inform the staff as we arrive a bit late. Just want to rest. Husband dint like ant, so when he found tiny ant, he was a bit disapointed. But its tropical island. Understand if there are some ants but not dangerous one. Overall everything good. We happy and might come back again.
My husband and I have spent two gorgeous weeks at Matahari resort. It is a lovely place in its every aspect: place, people, living, dining, swimming, diving, SPA, service - everything. It is very different from chain hotels even the biggest ones. Here guests are not just formally served, they are treated in the best possible and very friendly way - it is like you come to see your old friends. Matahari with people who work there are a true family and you can feel it in everything. If you want a complete relax - it is the right place for it. SPA on my opinion is the best here in comparison to other luxury places and hideaways from all over the world. I have first time experienced yoga at Matahari - it is available everyday at 8AM at yoga pavilion in front of the ocean - so that you can listen to the ocean and tropical birds and get total relaxation. Yoga is free and I enjoyed it almost every morning before breakfast. Yoga teachers are wonderful and very professional. Cuisine is also awesome at the hotel - you can try lots of amazing balinese dishes. It is not only very tasty but is served in a very beautiful way. At breakfast you will find lots of tropical fruits: papaya, mango, dragon fruit, jack fruit, passion fruit and many others. You can also order them during your lunch or dinner time. There are several restaurants in the hotel - both are great and worth visiting. Several times + during Christmas, NY and Balinese holidays we enjoyed great performances of local dancers, singers - some of them are from kindergartens and orphanages that Matahari hotel supports - it is part of CSR projects of Matahari (usually you just hear or read about CSR that a hotel is part of - but in Matahari you can really see and feel it - it is very emotional and lovely). The hotel actually shows you Balinese culture and there is no need to go elsewhere to see it. There is also a wonderful souvenir shop near lobby where you can purchase some craft hand-made statues and other local things made of wood or stone. On the territory of the hotel there is a perfect diving centre where you can arrange a trip to the national coral park Menjangan - there you can enjoy snorkeling and diving - both are pretty cool (we’ve been twice and would love to go more). You can see lots of fish, beautiful corals, turtles, we were also very happy to see the dolphins! There are some more spots beside Mejangan where you can also go. In 10-minutes walk along the beach or road you will find Turtle hatchery where you can see lots of little and very pretty turtles and even release one of them in the morning before 10 AM. On the beach you can go canoeing or just swim in warm water and enjoy the view of the hotel, hills beside and nature around. I would like to say many thanks to the owners of Matahari - Mr Magnus and Mrs Parwathi and GM Jany-Michel Fourre. You have created a wonderful place and home where anyone can have a dream-vacation. Thank you for home and very welcoming atmosphere! It was a great pleasure to meet you and enjoy the vacation.
