I am the Manager of Matahari Villas Ubud, Bali
Highly recommend. Absolutely beautiful views, fantastically relaxing. Incredibly accommodating service. It is a little bit away from city center, requires taxi to get to ubud city center. Not really walkable. Would 100% recommend.
The Absolute Dream was a dream come true! The pictures represent everything accurately, but actually cannot compare to how amazing the villa, the pool and the views are in real life!
The property includes 5 villas woven wonderfully into Ubud’s natural landscape. The villas are super clean, spacious and private, and allow you to experience the true natural beauty of Bali. Here you have an opportunity breathe fresh air, wake up to the sounds of the jungle, and gaze at rice fields while you lounge by the pool and indulge in a fresh fruit smoothie. This is eco-chic vacationing at its best – true indoor-outdoor living with boutique charm and luxury amenities!
Made and his team were incredibly helpful and professional. They anticipated and accommodated our every need, from airport transportation, to motorbike rentals, to laundry services.
The property is conveniently situated just enough outside of Ubud proper that you’re away from the touristy area, but you can get into and out of “downtown Ubud” in 10 minutes or less.
I highly recommend staying here, and I want to thank Made and his team for making our Bali vacation sheer paradise!
Prachtige locatie van dit Balinese huis in Ubud. Er was een warm welkom door Made en andere staff van het huis. Er waren nog 2-3 woningen die gezamenlijk gebruik maakten van het zwembad. Dat was uit de omschrijving niet duidelijk (maar zeker niet hinderlijk). Waanzinnig mooi uitzicht over de rijstvelden, echt een plek om tot rust te komen.
Heel vriendelijk personeel die elke ochtend lekker ontbijt maakten en het huis schoon hielden.
We had a lovely 10 day stay at villa sunrise. The staff was always smiling and the breakfast they prepared was superb. The kids loved opening the door and jumping directly in the pool. My husband and I enjoyed the rice paddy view and the over all tranquility of the property. Thanks Helen and Made for a wonderful stay.
Der Empfang war herzlich und wir fanden alles in guten Zustand vor. Der Transfer vom Fluhghafen war gut.
Very nice place. Comfortable. Nice views. Made was very helpfull. Close to Ubud ( with scooter 5 to 10 minutes) good breakfast. Good service!
The Matahari Village is located a bit south of Ubud and hidden in the rice fields, which makes it a bit hard to access but also very unique. With a driver or scooters it is just minutes away from the center.
The eco houses are beautiful, very comfy and share the access to an infinity pool with the view on the rice fields. The team lead by Made is also very nice and serviceable and the breakfast was really good. We stayed there for 2 nights with friends and enjoyed it. However, a few things were a bit unexpected :
- When we booked the Villa Untung, it was said to have the view over the rice fields, but a new house was getting built right in front, which completely blocked the view. (see pics #8-9-12-13)
- It was not clear that the pool was shared and not private, which was also a surprise when we arrived.
- The villa is the first in the village and located right next to the street so we could hear the noise from outside which was a bit unpleasant.
- The house was not as clean as it looks on the pictures (the floor for example was stained with dirty water compared to pic #15)
Overall it was a great stay, but we were expecting a very intimate and rustic experience and were a bit misled by the photos and description.
Séjour très agréable, on se sent tout de suite bien. Les chambres et les sdb sont belles. La terrasse est un havre de paix donnant sur une rizière. La piscine bien que partagée avec 5 autres villas est très belle et donne aussi sur la rizière.
Nous n'avons pas été déçus. Merci à Made, Wayan et les autres qui nous ont accueillis.
Lovely stay. Made looked after us very well. Thanks.
This place is the epitome of Ubud living. Idyllic rice field views, roosters crowing at dawn, open air concept, lizards chilling out. We loved the amenities such as the outdoor bathroom, kitchen, fans, and fab wifi. The pool was nice but we never ended up using it as we were too busy exploring town. Made was lovely, organizing for us our motorbike, laundry, breakfast, mobile phone, and airport transfers.
I was won over by Matahari Villas the moment I stepped into the beautiful grounds and simply stunning views over the rice fields and beyond to the volcanos as a backdrop!
We stayed much longer than originally intended as we didn't want to leave!
The staff are extremely helpful and Made is an absolute gem! Nothing is too much trouble.
The villas are very beautiful and ours was literally a step away from the rice paddies themselves. So wonderful to wake to the incredible sunrises over these views and have our glass of wine at sunset with similarly awe inspiring skies.
We would thoroughly recommend Matahari Villas for those wishing for peace and tranquility yet close enough to all that the centre of Ubud has to offer. Photographs do not do this place justice!
