“Best dive package deal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Tulamben is an incredible place to dive, and the Matahari resort made it all the better. We stayed for 3 nights and did a 3 day dive package, it was incredible. Best value for money and the dive guide was great-- always pointed out animals (especially small nudibranchs that we would have missed) and showed us a variety of great dive sites. Service was fantastic and the resort is very relaxing and peaceful. Will go back!

We stayed at Matahari for five nights. If you're looking for a relaxed place for diving, this place is your choice. Just gear up and jump in the ocean to dive at house reef. Other good diving spots within 2-3 min walking distance (such as Liberty shipwreck and Tulamben wall). I'd like to express my thanks to Suci and her team for great hospitality during our stay.

Best regards,

Lasse & H-R

We really enjoyed our stay there. Wished we could have stayed even longer! The package we booked was really worth it! We loved the "all you can dive"-concept! Everyone was very friendly and the dives were amazing! We'll definitely will be back!

This place has the best prices for diving (150k rent material + 250k per dive, if you do more dives you get discounts, consider the unlimited package if you are a diving freak like many people here). If you have your own equipment, it's even cheaper. They give you nitrox for free, if you have a nitrox certification.

Location: the hotel is located directly in front of "coral garden" (we did some snorkelling: amazing and also a night dive). To go to the USAT Liberty wreck you need to walk about 5 minutes on the right.

Staff and dive guided: VERY FRIENDLY. They sing, smile and entertain, we really enjoyed the people here!

Restaurant: very good, we had our breakfasts, lunches, and dinners only here. Totally satisfied besides the price a bit higher compared to Warungs if you travel on budget.

Spa: we had reflexology for 30 mins each and we enjoyed it.

The resort itself is ok (nothing special, a bit old/not maintained... swimming pool not inviting...). The location is nothing special (just a few shops, a few dive centers and restaurants nearby) but if you are here it's probably for diving.

We just did snorkelling on the 1s day, 2 dives the next day and stayed an extra day to relax. It's not the perfect placer to relax. Thus if you are a couple looking also for that, consider a better maintained resort (maybe a bit more expensive).

Feedback to owner: put mosquito nets.
Feedback for customer: bring mosquito repellent for the night...

Transport to airport or to other places (we went to Lovina): the hotel will provide, but it's more expensive than using alternatives you can google around. Search e.g. Tulamben transport or similar, you can easily save 200k just with a phone call.

Only "Standard rooms" (220.000 RP incl.breakfast) don't have mosquito net. All other rooms (start from 280.000 RP) have mosquito net and have already renovation.
But we are happy you enjoyed your time to stay with us and thanks for the feedback.

We booked the 7 nights package. From our first e mail until we left everything worked well out. The package is listed on their web site. We had a bungalow room . It was big with AC and was well kept. The entire staff was very friendly . Two things , I found the wifi not reliable and the entire week there was no fish available . The food on offer is good. There are now 2 ATM's in Tulamben. I will visit again.

Peaceful place and familiar, cozy resort. You will love having breakfast right on the waterfront or watching the sunrise from the top of the restaurant. Very friendly and helpful staff and dedicated dive masters. Thank’s to the owner Suci, Didi and the whole Matahari team!

This is my second stay with the resort. Staffs and crew are very helpful. Had another awesome dive trip with my friend. Their package deals are definitely a good bargain; Spa, dive, accommodation,transport and meals.. Food is awesome, service is great. Will be looking forward to be back again soon!
