This wonderful spacious villa is situated just metres from a rugged beach, with views (from upstairs) of the ocean, rice fields and traditional village life. During our stay, we walked a few metres up the road to the temple and had a chat with the very friendly villagers, followed by a . . .

I spy with my little eye a sumptuous villa named Matahari. In the Indonesian language, Matahari means the sun – an appropriate name for this dazzling symmetrical property, which embraces space, exudes style and radiates sunlight.     

The name Matahari has also become synonymous with espionage, intrigue, and sensuality. And these words too befit the villa.  Sensual for sure – at Matahari all of your senses will be stimulated – from the sight of the sea, the sound of ritual temple music, and the scent of flowers, to the taste of the cook’s delectable cuisine and, at the end of the day, the feeling of sinking into a plush king-size bed. As for intrigue; you just might be intrigued as to why the owners have been so generous with space. Matahari is so big that it’s easy to lose your family and companions within its depths. The garden is huge, making the villa perfect for weddings, while each master bathroom alone is big enough to hold a party in. And espionage? Check out the picture windows on three sides of the bedrooms and beside the bathtubs and showers, because it’s possible you might feel a bit exposed. But fear not, modesty is upheld by the provision of one-way mirrored glass. You can spy on the world from Matahari, but in this beautiful private villa, no one can spy on you!    

Villa Matahari is situated just footsteps from the beach in the centre of the sunny seaside village of Seseh on Bali’s south-west coast. A Spanish-inspired dream in white, it boasts custom-designed furnishings, crisp white walls, white polished-concrete floors, and a soaring shingle roof lined with white-painted timber. Accommodation comprises two sexy master bedrooms, two guest suites on the far side of the swimming pool, an open-sided pavilion incorporating living, dining and entertainment spaces, an open-air lounge and a spa room where you can enjoy treatments and massages. Completed in 2009, this haven of tranquility has been described as “A modern coffee table book house”, fulfilling the expectation of folks who are looking for something funky and contemporary, supported by a great team of staff.     

Matahari has an interconnecting garden door to its twin brother Mahatma, which presents a contrasting décor and theme. Both villas can therefore be rented together - perfect for weddings and special events - providing accommodation for up to 18 people.

Villa Matahari is located in the heart of Seseh, a traditional beachside village, heralded by a towering banyan tree and approached via an avenue of coconut palms. Seseh and the tiny neighbouring villages of Sogsogan and Cemagi still retain the customs and culture of old Bali. Here, you will see farmers in conical hats riding rusty old upright bicycles, as well as frequent, colourful processions to Seseh’s large beachside temple. There are no international restaurants here, but you might just see a Barong* (high-spirited, benevolent beast representing the power of good) dancing on the street. The good news, for folks who want to immerse themselves in the customs and culture of old Bali, is that the villagers encourage and welcome congenial visitors. There are now over 30 private rental villas in these three villages, all of which have seamlessly integrated without in any way detracting from the simplicity and charm of the location. This is an ideal destination for those who want to get lost in the beauty of the countryside, and for those who want to engage with the local people and gain privileged insights into the Balinese Hindu lifestyle.

At Villa Matahari, a main two-storey pavilion presides at one end of an 18m swimming pool, at the other end of which are two single-storey guest bedroom suites, with a covered open-air living room in between.      

The living and dining room in the main pavilion is open on three sides and covers most of the ground floor. The open-plan design incorporates a TV lounge, accessed by wide stepping stones over a pond and furnished with a daybed, complete with a 42-inch TV/DVD player and sound system. Another space nods to tradition with a Balinese gong and antique rice chest. The living area itself is the central focus. Aligned with the swimming pool and overlooking the garden, it is cooled by ceiling fans and furnished with a sofa, chairs and a coffee table. The adjacent dining area is furnished with a table for 12, and next to this is a self-contained, fully equipped modern kitchen. A spa room and guest washroom can also be found on ground level.      

The air conditioned master bedrooms are situated in twin wings upstairs. Both feature massive picture windows overlooking the garden, and each is flanked by a roof terrace. The king bed and built-in desks in each room are oriented towards the ocean, just a stone’s throw away, while the vast ensuite bathrooms are each fitted with a luxurious bathtub beside a wide window, as well as a walk-in rain shower. A wide terrazzo vanity unit supports twin washbasins, and huge wall mirrors multiply the space, completed with fitted wardrobes.    

The guest suites are furnished with king beds, desks and wardrobes. Ensuite bathrooms present double washbasins, bathtubs and walk-in rain showers. Glass doors in the suites open onto timber decks in private back gardens, and alfresco sitting areas overlooking the pool. All bedrooms are equipped with safes and wall-mounted flat-screen satellite-channel TVs. WiFi internet access is complimentary.     

The swimming pool is a stunning feature, which completes the symmetry of the property. The deck is furnished with sunloungers and flanked by a pair of atmospheric firebowls, which are lit at sunset. Finally, a central open-air lounge presents an additional sitting area; sheltered by a roof it presides over the pool, in between the two garden suites.
