Almost 4* but the Matahari is close to diesel generator which makes electricity for the Long beach son during the night it is noisy. Pitty. We stay in double room with aircondition and bathroom. During check in the receptionist was friendly but during the breakfast we don't feel any good atmosphere. So in total for 60 %.

If you’re a tourist who’s only comfortable staying in hotel/resort with star-rating, this isn’t for you. Matahari is very simple and basic accommodation at the Long Beach. While it isn’t a beach-facing property, it takes less than a minute to walk to the beach and it is located in the middle of the stretch of Long Beach. They offer a...

Okay rooms just perfect for sleeping at nights. Electricity is only from 6pm til 10am the next day but at this jewel of an island you won't be in your room for long anyways! What I like most was it was sooo close to Matahari Chalet where i took my diving license..really convenient!

I spent a couple of days with these guys, making a refresh dive with a quick theory course, and then some fun dives. There was a really friendly and happy wibe at this place, with a lot of great people taking care of us, and the owner Mr. Jeng feeding us with fruit😃 When it came to the diving they...

We stayed at Matahari as they offered a great package including rooms/breakfast/dives/ferry. The rooms are a bit dark, but as they're really only used to shower and sleep it was not an issue for us.The team are welcoming and knowledgeable. Internet is spotty at best, which give a good reason to switch off your devices and enjoy being on a...

Well, in long Beach, all accommodations are bad. Local people are not friendly, food is just OK. You come here essentially for diving or at least snorkeling. Prices are higher than mainland in a really badly managed island. Matahari is OK for the renovated rooms with AC.

Generally, I would say I had a good experience with Matahari. We, me and my friend, stayed in this hotel while also taking 2 Diving courses (Open Dive + Advance). My rating is based on the following: 1) Value: I think Matahari provide a good value of money. We stayed for 6 nights and 7 days in an A/C room...

We decided to book with Matahari Divers a few weeks in advance as we were unsure about finding accomodation when we arrived. We got quoted a price for a chalet room for 5 nights and 6 fun dives. The price seemed reasonable and included speedboat return tickets from Kuala Besut and breakfast each day. When we arrived we signed onto...

We stayed at matahari chalets because of the the friendly people at the adjacent matahari-diveschool and a recommendation from people at the beach. If you arrive via watertaxi at long beach you'll find them on the left side next to monkey divers and panorama divers. Matahari offers rooms and chalets that CAN be combined with some diving; they have excellent...

I'm a walk in guest. On the day I arrived, they had left only a AC room, I've check other hotel and chalets but the small island was quite occupied. No other choice, i take the room for my 3day stay. The room is so dim, then this hotel will cut off electricity after 12pm. I can't unpack my luggage...
