This was our third time that we spent a week in this amazing resort, after having stayed here in October 2013 and 2018. This time we came with a group of six Belgian divers. The accommodation was excellent in spacious and clean (deluxe) rooms with private bathroom and equipped with air conditioning. Breakfast and other meals were well above average (certainly as good as elsewhere in Tulamben).
But the main attractiveness of Matahari Resort is the quiet and relaxed atmosphere that is transmitted by the overall arrangement of the place, with lush gardens and cozy Balinese-style rooms and bungalows. Most important is that the staff are all amazingly friendly and helpful. All this makes you feeling at home.
We had booked a package including accommodation, diving, a one day excursion, Balinese massage in the SPA and transport from and to other locations in Bali. All this was offered as indicated. Moreover, the timetable was very flexible (no objection to last-minute changes), excursions and transport were in a comfortable minibus. The dive center is very comfortably located on the beach, next to the restaurant. The diving, as arranged by two “private” dive guides, was just superb.
In short, Matahari Resort does not offer luxurious but rather very convenient accommodation and activities at a very reasonable price. An absolute recommendable site for both divers and non-divers. We will certainly be back!More
