Unlike other Indonesians, Balinese people mainly believe in Hindu Dharma.
Touring the island, you will encounter the characteristic brilliant smiles,
which signal the attitude of the Balinese people. Ubud, a colony of art and
culture, is one of the most traditional areas in Bali. The people of Ubud dress
in their native sarongs and maintain traditional religious ceremonies. Walking
on the streets of Ubud, you might have the illusion of wandering through an
Matahari Cottage Bed & Breakfast
on a secluded ravine, only a five to seven minute walk from Ubud Palace.
Numerous birds and butterflies weave through the surrounding lush green
jungle and garden of colorful, exotic flowers. Flocks of white herons
fly in a V formation as the glowing Balinese sun sets. The birds are on
their way to their native habitat, the village of Bedulu, located a
fifteen-minute drive from Ubud. Bedulu is a popular spot for tourists.
Matahari Cottage Bed & Breakfast is dedicated to
your comfort and pleasure. An occasional guest familiar only with chain
hotel offerings might find that Matahari does not match his or her
expectations; however, those who would enjoy a more natural ethnic
experience in grass huts carefully prepared to make guests feel pampered
in the jungle surroundings, will find a pleasurable and memorable
experience at Matahari, and at a reasonable price.
Matahari Cottage Bed & Breakfast offers a five-star
quality breakfast and an exquisite afternoon tea free to in-room guests. Many
utensils at Matahari are antique porcelain and silverware, courtesy of our
master innkeeper, who enjoys sharing his Bali lifestyle with his guests. Our
breakfast menu is changed daily to satisfy all palates.
Matahari is a green bungalow, which means that ceiling and
floor fans are used in place of air conditioning in all guest rooms (the Indian
Pasha Room is the only guest room with air-conditioner.) Air conditioning is
used only in the library where numerous antique books and furniture require
protection from excess humidity. Matahari's solar water heater, imported from
Australia, accommodates hot baths and showers while saving electric energy.
Although Bali is located only eight degree south of the equator, Ubud is located
near the mountainous area where temperatures vary as much as 5 degrees Celsius
between nighttime and daytime hours. Matahari Cottage Bed & Breakfast offers six
rooms decorated in six different themes. Please click on Theme Rooms above for

gues stays 7 days and up.
