Reviewed July 30, 2013

although i was not staying at this hotel, i was lucky enough to taste the food at one of their restaurant. I was there on one Saturday night so they were doing a Balinese Buffet dinner at the restaurant on the beach side. Delicious food, excellent service to combine with a perfect company.To be honest, i have never been a big fan of ayam betutu (steamed/grilled chicken with balinese herbs originated in this area) but at matahari beach resort, i have never tried ayam betutu quite like it. it was juicy, succulent and very tasty without being overpowered with too much spices and herbs like most ayam betutu restaurants always intend to do. But... my favourite dish was.. the babi kecap (pork in soya sauce).. simply to die for. I will certainly come back to try the a la carte menu , one day

We had a wonderful stay at Matahari, one of the best lodges we have ever been. The setting, the decoration details, the high trained staff made our holidays unforgettable. The gastronomy is awesome specially because of Chef Komang who explained top recipes in the best romantic dinner on the beach itself. The beautiful swimming pool and the spa are highlights as well. We will return. Gabriel

We stayed four nights at the Matahari in June 2013. It is, by far, the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in so I am not accustomed to a truly excellent hotel. the staff were very professional yet friendly, the food in the restaurant was fantastic, the grounds are a botanical garden and the rooms are beautiful. the beach is the only weak spot, it just isn't very nice but the hotel has made the best of it.

Everything about this hotel was fantastic, the bungalow, the outdoor shower, the swimmingpool were absolutely lovely. Also the staff were especially friendly. This is one of the best hotels I have stayed at. I spent 3 days here with my daughter in June, and we were really homesick after moving from here to Nusa Dua where we spent a further 3 days before flying home. Oh what a disappointment to arrive in a huge, unpersonal hotel after just having stayed in Matahari!
I would go back straight away and stay longer next time.

This is a hard review to do. The pool area is great. The rooms are super comfortable. The staff work hard. The breakfast was good.

But, it falls short of the 5 star prices charged. The spa was not a positive experience - we requested 2 rooms and despite this were put in the same room. Lights were on full! and one masseuse was watching what the other did. We can accept trainees at reception etc. but not for a massage.

The hotel could be great. Spend a few nights in casa del mar Langkawi and the management could see what can be done with very little additional expense.

It is a very nice hotel were the staff takes care of every little detail that makes you holiday pleasant

food in the restaurant is overpriced but the quality is top
there is not really a lot to do in the village

The nearby Mosque wakes you up at 5 a.m. and the prayers via loudspeakers continue during the day. Due to the loudness it made it impossible to relax

Very elegant resort in the remote (or as remote as you can get in Bali) northwest, which has also some great diving only a short boat ride away.

Two things that we particularly enjoyed at Matahari were the pool, very large and surrounded by beautiful fragipani trees, and the great bar/restaurant at the beach. The beach itself is fantastic too, carefully maintained with the orange flowers from the trees looking striking against the grey sand. The food was not cheap but very tasty and worth the prices.

One word of advice: if you are staying at Matahari book a dive trip (or if you are not a diver a snorkelling trip) at Menjangan Island. The corals and underwater wildlife are truly unforgettable!
