I had an amazing week staying at matahari tulamben, great dive master and attentive service by the staffs! Highly recommended if you are looking for a place away from the busy bali touristy places! Sue
I made a last minute reservation and the staff was prepared for my arrival. The property is located on a very narrow strip perpendicular to the ocean, so there is a an alleyway with rooms on either side, so the view from most of the rooms is not scenic. BUT, you shouldn't be in your rom other than sleeping and showering anyway!!! The pool and restaurant areas have sweeping views of the ocean. The room was what I expected for the very good price- clean, comfortable and functional. I didn;'t need any of the frills that higher end hotels offer. The included breakfast had a number of egg and pancake choices and was freshly cooked and tasted good. A major shout out to the owner Suci ace absentmindedly left my passport at the hotel and was already 3.5 hours away once I realized it. She arranged that the passport could be delivered the following morning to ensure I could make my international flight. I was so grateful for her effort and initiative on my behalf. She truly solved an incredibly stressful situation. If you are diving at the Liberty wreck, you can't get much more convenient than Matahari. Enjoyed my stay, you will too!…
Staying here for 4 days and having a really nice stay. I was staying with my friends and taking the family room. The room is very clean and neat. But the family room only have 1 bathroom, so if you are traveling with others and have problems with 'waiting for toilet' you might want to have regular room instead of the family room. They have refrigerator, wardrobe place, giving you coffee and tea. The breakfast are good. Staff are friendly.
Matahari was incredible. I am normally into the big pelagic stuff but I learned start to like all the tiny critters that we spotted. great house reef, very good food and good accommodation. Very affordable place to stay and dive at. I will definitely come back one day. Thank you guys!
We spent a great time in Matahari Tulamben Resort. We very often had a dinner they during our three weeks vacation. We enjoyed the food and drink. You can choose form many of food - chicken, vegetable salat, fish, fresh fruits,.. I only can recommend.
Only got to stay a few days and under pretty atypical circumstances (world wide pandemic going on). First of all Suci, the owner is great. Excellent accommodating booking process, she helped me out last year when my flight got cancelled and I rescheduled this year with no problem. Easy check in, nice restaurant with decent food at standard Indo restaurant prices for local food. Great views- especially sunrise- and well laid out superior room. Diving: pretty decent vis, nice guides - Gun (pronounced with long u) was most attentive in finding cool things to show me as well as Kadek who apparently is nicknamed eagle eyes. I had several guides (5 in 7 dives) over the course of my stay (not sure if that’s normal practice here) went to the standard sites (liberty wreck and Suci place) plus Emerald (a wall like coral reef site) everything is super close by. Suci’s place is probably my favourite and I had a fantastic last dive there this morning Cons: wifi and my data network didn’t reach my room (great reception nearer the beach) and there’s gaps between the door etc that probably leads to inefficient air con - personally I sleep with the dry setting usually anyways so I didn’t really notice any discomfort per se, but maybe if you need really cold rooms you might…
I've stayed with The Matahari 'Crew' in Tulamben five or six times now and I will stay again. Absolutely!! As a diver of 40 years, instructor and amateur underwater photographer it's my one stop place to go diving to enjoy and tune in before heading off somewhere else. But, that's not the only reason why I choose Matahari over other places in the area. The accommodations on all levels are very comfortable and clean being serviced every day. Breakfast is included and also bottled water both a plus imo. The restaurant area is right on the beach with Mt Agung to the south west with views around to The drop off and point and on those very early mornings you'll see Lombok and Mt Rinjani off in the distance which only adds to the whole experience. The food here is I think some of the best around with excellent renditions of Balinese food that are pretty hard to beat especially in the area. The staff in the restaurant, at the front desk and in general throughout the whole property are extremely friendly and go out of their way to help you with anything.…

We stayed there for only one night as we wanted to do some snorkelling around the area. The hotel offers a full service for this and also has a spa (and not an expensive one!) the rooms are good sized and with air conditioning! The staff is friendly and very helpful, they can book transportation if needed. Also the restaurant located in front of the sea has not only a great view but also good food for the region! Definitely a good recommendation for the area!
My wife and I went had a traditional Balinese massage here. It was so good that I was falling in and out of sleep throughout it. I had a Masseuse called Danni, but my wife’s lady (who’s name I don’t recall) was also great. The massage is offered In the Spa section of the Matahari hotel. They have proper massage beds which was a plus. The cost for a 60min Balinese massage was 110k IDE. By comparison, we had some masseuses come to our hotel and give a mediocre massage - on our hotel beds - for 150k IDR. I know which one I’ll choose next time.
