Me and my girlfriend (both 25 y/o from London) stayed at the Mathis Retreat for 5 nights. We thought it was fantastic and was everything we were looking for from our first visit to Bali. Room: We stayed in room 1, this was one of the bungalows and it was beautiful. (As in, we got that tingly feeling of excitement...

Such a shame that management/maintenance of this place does not follow up with its gorgeous facility and surroundings around. I had ants, lots, in the room 16 for my 1st night stay; I was very well aware of the fact that I was in the middle of rice fields, so I understood it could happen. Next day, I was moving...

Dear Choo- Ho Rhee, As we told you during your stay, Mathis Retreat is located in the middle of the rice paddies (and that’s why many people want to stay with us for the amazing views and atmosphere) and as you know Bali got a huge quantity or rain from beginning of July (anormal for this season). These heavy rains...

I've stayed at this hotel with my parents twice - once in 2014 and once in 2016. It was then known as Kenanga. I hope that the name change doesn't impact anything else, because our stays were both so perfect. The staff are SO attentive and friendly. The service is really amazing. You're welcomed with warm smiles every morning, and...

Stayed at hotel for 2 nights, the place is fantastic and unique, rice field right at the backyard, relaxing and refreshing. When we finished roaming around ubud, we always stoped by terracota restaurant at the hotel to get some desserts. And waht desserts! Must try the profiteroles. Overall great experience, something you dont get even at five stars.

We stayed in one of the lovely cottages for three nights. The staff are very friendly and Karin introduced herself to us on our arrival. It's a very tranquil place to relax in. The pool area is wonderful and the room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was lovely and we enjoyed a delicious evening meal at the restaurant....

This is the hotel you imagine when you think of staying in Ubud. The view across working rice paddies is amazing as our the rooms, quiet amazing. The infinity pool across the rice paddies, the bean bags by the rice paddies and the general setting are all amazing. Staff are friendly and efficient. The hotel is too far out of...

It is our second stay at the Mathis retreat (Kenanga last year) and the manageress; Karne, has maintained a charming atmosphere with excellent food, very kind staff and excellent service.

We treated ourselves to a night here to escape the busy Ubud centre. It's gorgeous. The rice field views, the beautiful swimming pool and the elegant restaurant. The rooms are comfortable with a modern Balinese design. The owner spent time to introduce herself after breakfast and part some helpful knowledge. We hope to be back!

I really liked this hotel, we booked under the name Kenenga boutique hotel. The staff were amazing and called us by name from the start. The manager Karin, who is French, was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and tours to do. The place was very clean. Just a short ride into the city centre, $6 dollars Australian. Very cheap.
