My girlfriend and I stayed here an entire month from August to September 2013 and don't ever want to go home! The room we have is absolutely excellent: big, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is great and it's nice to have a hot shower after spending the day at the several beaches nearby. The reason we chose Matra is the excellent value and also the location in Canggu which is out of Seminyak and Kuta and therefore much more laid back (but still just a few dollars taxi ride if you want to head over there to party).

Vicky, the owner, and her family are just great. Always friendly, always smiling, always willing to help with whatever you need: need to rent a motorbike, need to rent a car, need to call a taxi, need to find out about this or that. Their family has four wonderful dogs that my girlfriend loves playing with, really feels like home here. There is a communal kitchen that we use occasionally to cook and everything is always kept nice and clean. There are tables outside of all the rooms where you can hang out and enjoy all the plants and birds or even work using their fast wifi.

Everything is really wonderful here, can't recommend this place highly enough. We will definitely stay at Matra every time we are in Bali!!!

I stay in Matra for a long period of time, I like the place and the area so much it feels like home. Everywhere around the world there are the ups and downs. The owner/staff managements are very friendly. Their hospitality is superb, you can ask for their helps just about for anything and they will try to accommodate you with what you need. The area is a little off from the crowded tourists area like in Kuta, but you can find anything you need in the area within walking distance (i.e restaurants for breakfast/lunch/dinner, bakeries, local mini marts, laundry store). For transport, you can find rental for motorbike or car or just call a taxi if you decided to go travel around the island. The room itself is very spacious with its unique very high ceiling as you can see in the pictures taken by guests, and the most important thing is it's clean. Mosquitoes are quite a problem for some people but they are everywhere in Bali, all you need to do is get a mosquito spray or anti-mosquito plug-in or get an anti-mosquito lotion and problem solved. Enough said, and I would recommend this Guesthouse to anybody who wants to enjoy Bali and immersed in the culture.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back is rather larger.

Hello,

I recommend Matra Bali Guesthouse like the best place for your stay in Bali. Love the balinese style of the place and the temple. Large rooms and clean with nice view of yard and beautiful sounds from the nature. Very kind and friendly staff and owner/management. It´s an amazing place and located in a peaceful area near in just 5 min in motorbike to nice surfs spots in canggu like: batubolong, echo beach and old´s man.

I love to stay at Matra. We travelled around in Bali, but when we came back to Matra to meet with friends, it felt like coming home. The rooms are really big, clean and in a nice bungalow style. I love the family that runs the guesthouse, they make you feel so comfortable and happy. The location is perfect for surfers. You can rent a motorbike at Matra and go surfing at echo beach or visit the Tanah lot temple, go to monkey forest in Ubud or go party in Kuta. In the street of Matra you have quite a lot of nice places to have breakfast or lunch, walking distance. I can't wait to go back to this place.
