My husband and I were return visitors to this hotel. Suci and all her family and staff always ensure a great stay. They arranged a room and pick up for us with hardly any notice due to the vulcanic ash disruption last November. Diving was excellent and the guides always try to spot your favourite critters for you. The reception...

Was there with big group of 38. Wonderful stay, good food, superb diving. Was there on a late flight, arriving only after midnight, resort took trouble to pick me up from airport. Best shore dives, and a short ride to the famous wreck, the Liberty. Very highly recommended with great value for money.

We stayed for two weeks here and the diving was awesome! Great visibility, plenty of life, super easy dives, free nitrox... what more could you ask for? The restaurant is one of the better ones in Tulamben and the service from all employees was excellent. For the price, you can't beat Matahari!

Thank you for your nice feedback and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us :-) For the flies we abologize. This is seasonal in Tulamben and surely not only in Tulamben. Always in the beginning of the rainy season or in the manggo season it is a problem and we actually dont want to go with...

I have already summarized my experience in the title itself. I have chosen Matahari resort for my stay as they are also offering SSI open water diving courses, and have several positive reviews on Trip Advisor. I was little nervous as to whether I made the right choice or not, since there are some people who have complaints about this...

Our son asked for a scuba certification course for his eleventh birthday and I had long wanted to deactivate my expired cert. I selected Matahari Tumbalen primarily as a comfortable place where we could be properly certified. We weren't looking for a palatial resort; dive resorts aren't usually that. We got more than we sought: extraordinarily good scuba instruction in...

My first point here is if you are chasing a private villa, with 5 star luxury, you should keep driving. This piece of paradise is an old school gem with the most amazing diving right at the front door. Just unreal we thought. We have been to Bali probably 45 times and say in shame I have never scuba dived...

Reasonable rooms. Watch out for leaks during heavy rains...our stuff got fairly wet. (Stayed in Rara). Also the beds have some poking springs, and the pillows are equivalent to a rollable camping pillow. Excellent breakfast daily, reasonable lunch/dinner. The spa was super, like less than $12 Canadian for a 1 hr massage. The diving was fantastic. The shore entries in...

Thank you that you took your time for the review. For the problem from the window we really apologize. But when the rainy season start and after long dry season it can happen that we have small problem and must fix them. But that can happen in every place in Asia. Sorry again.

We were staying at Matahari for 2 weeks and had a great time. Food is super excellent, stuff super friendly and the surrounding beautiful, the pool with its bar small but big enough to spend the time in-between the dives. We were staying at the family bungalow, which was great. We woke up at 5 from the sound of the...
