We had two deluxe rooms and both were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included and there was enough choice for everyone. This is not only a good choice for divers and snorkelers but a relaxing place for those who just want to explore the area or see a different part of Bali. Prices are very reasonable and the staff were all pleasant. The view from the restaurant is stunning, looking out at the ocean and Mt Agung behind. The 4 of us used the spa twice each. If you book two people at once you may need to ask the girls to stop talking / whispering, something that needs to be addressed. Once asked they quickly stopped, however massage services should be quiet. The massages and other services were good though. There is an inexpensive laundry on the street, a couple of convenience stores and a few local warungs. We would happily return and thank the staff for a lovely stay.

The resort is on the the shore front and so provides excellent access to the dive shop, the restaurant and the beach (for shore dives). It is compact, but attractive and quiet (though I think the guesthouse rooms could be noisy as they are situated on the main road which is busy during the day, quiet at night). The staff are all lovely - very friendly and helpful. Our room was very reasonably priced, if small, and there was a problem with the plumbing, so there was an unpleasant smell in the bathroom. Despite this problem, overall we were very happy with our stay at Matahari Tulamben. It was a great place to meet other divers.

After covid we finally could go back to Bali. And of course back to Matahari. We booked a year in advance and asked for one of the bigger bungalows and friends of us took the other bungalow. We arrived on time at the airport and our driver from Matahari was waiting for us. The transfer to the resort went smooth, even with the heavy traffic around the airport. Arriving at the resort was so very nice. All the people working there before covid are still working there! Suci, the owner, has kept the people healthy and provided food during the pandemic. Everybody still knew my name and we were really welcome once again. The 19 days went without any problem, only too fast! The Matahari team made the holiday very nice and with the great food, fantastic diving and the weather it was once again a perfect time. Thank you Suciajd team!

Once again had a wonderful dive vacation at this resort. Really enjoyed this beautiful place, nice staffs and the great food. Many thanks to the receptionist who immediately arranged a car to take me to the hospital when I felt unwell and patiently waited for me at hospital to take me back to the resort. Dive center: Our dive guides Ketur (hope I spelled it correctly) and Gun were amazing, very experienced and super friendly! Thank you so much for the safe and wonderful diving experience these days. Spa: Kuman is my favorite spa therapist, massage was very relaxing. Thank you Suci and your great team. We will definitely come back again!

We stayed here for 5 days doing an advanced adventurer diving course. Didi was a great instructor and a super nice person, and we enjoyed our time with him a lot. The diving here is excellent and feels very safe. The location of the hotel is perfect - right on a beautiful beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. We loved the good vibes and calmness - it felt like home!

We booked a whole package at matahari, ssi Open water diving course and spa. Everything was exceptionaly good, the communication between suci in adwance was super nice and uncomplicated. Diving center: As i said me and my son booked also a diving course,. Didi was our diving instructor, as a father of a 14 year old kid I was a bit scared of the diving course, but obviously for no reason. Didi is an awesome teacher, he took his time explaining us everything in detail and was super friendly. My son had some problems with one of his tooth while diving and unfortunately we couldnt finish the course because we already booked another location in ubud. But we decided that we will come back and finish the course and thats what we did now, a simplle whatsapp text to didi and everything was organized, its just lovely how everybody in matahri resort tries to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Im looking forward meeting didi again tomorrow and finish the course. The equipment was also great and the riffs in front are an extra plus for the location, my wife spend her time snorkeling with turtles and soo many fish while me and my son where diving. Resort We decided to go for the ocean view bungalow wich is on two floors with a very nice terrasse, the rooms where clean, and again the staff extra friendly and helpfull, the room is full of books to read on the big terrasse. It has a misquito net wich we did nod needed, fridge and ac. The reception was also very helpfull, we misscalculated a bit and did not bring enough cash. They drove us to the next city to an atm, and when that atm did not worked, they gave us cash we could pay for with our credit card. I mean its just a tiny detail but it just shows that they want to help you out as much as they can. I fell instantly in love with the place and the team. Restaurant Excellent food,, the thai food and everything we tried was very good, so where the drnks with a beautifull view. The staff was also very nice in the restaurant.as i said we had not a lot of cash and i felt miserable that I couldnt tip directly in the restaurand. We tipped in the end at the reception with the cardi hope that was ok too. Now we are back in the tulamben area but matahari was already booked out but still they offered us a driver to pick us up at our place for the diving course, but i allready miss that place. Total recommendation, loved it

This is THE place for muck diving, especially to see rare nudibranchs. Period. The resort has cozy rooms, a SPA, pool and a beautiful twi story open restaurant and dive center right at the beach. All inside the resort. Food, staff, diving, all 10/10 perfect. And all of that at a sensationally good price, too. We stayed here as a couple and had an amazing dive guide to ourselves for the whole time. But there is something for everyone: We saw happy solo travelers, couples and even a group of 11. Suci and her team cater the best experience for you. We stayed for 10 nights, originally planned for 6 only, but we had to extend because it's just amazing. The team helped us in everything. They organize taxi tansfers to/from anywhere. We needed some batteries from a shop in Denpasar and a driver got them the next day (Denpasar is 3+ hours away!). I once left my dive computer on a remote site. They got it back after a few minutes. I don't know what to say other than if you love muck diving, you'd be crazy not to come here for as long and often as possible. I wish so badly we could have stayed even longer. The continuation of our trip was just no comparison anymore. This place spoils you :-D We will for 100% come back, as many times as possible.

I stayed at the Matahari for 16 nights and had the best time! The location is brilliant... straight out the fron is Suci's Place a house reef which is just amazing for macro photography.... a 100m along the beach to the right is another great dive site, The Drop Of; as the name suggests, its a steep wall dropping to perhaps 100m? with great marine life everywhere... and then of course about 200m down the beach to the left of Matahari is the Liberty Wreck. I did 36 wonderful dives in 12 days, accommpanied by Parta, the best local dive guide I have ever had in my 40 yeras of diving. His skill in finding small creatures was amazing which meant I got sooooo many more photos than usual. He was great helping me with my camera equipment and ensuring that it was cared for when entering and exiting the water. The food at the Matahari restaurant was fabulous, a huge variety of choices and every dish I had was beautifully cooked.All the staff were very helpful and courteous and made me feel very welcome. Lots of extras were included in my package which made my stay even better including a free massage and day out sightseeing.Thank you Suci for your wonderful hospitality..... I will definitely return!

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!
