Villa Matahari is located just footsteps away from the beach in the traditional, seaside and exclusive fishermen village of Pantai Seseh on Bali’s southwest coast.
Seseh is surrounded by a government protected rice field’s green belt and has become an exclusive destination for high end customers where to enjoy the untouched traditional Balinese culture; private and unspoiled beaches; the waves in Seseh surfing spots; the tasty fresh seafood provided directly from the fishermen; real Balinese ceremonies in the local temples, and the tranquil atmosphere of the rice fields.
Seseh retains the customs and culture of the old Bali. Cows are herded through the fields, rice is planted and harvested throughout year, and the sound of ritual music is carried on the breeze.
Villa Matahari offers direct access to the beach and easy access up to the mountains and rice terraces on the western slopes of the island; it is 60 minutes away from the famous cultural and artistic town of Ubud, just 30 minutes drive from Seminyak and the Sunset Road, gateway to the eastern side of the island, 10 minutes away from the trending Batu Bolong in Canggu, and only 5 minutes away from Tanah Lot, one of the main temples of Bali.
It is also convenient for all of Bali’s shopping malls and main tourist attractions. The international airport is 60 minutes’ drive.
