We recently held our wedding at Villa Mathis and were very pleased with everything organised. We hired out the whole venue for a lot of our wedding guests for at least four nights and were treated so well by the staff. Bruno and his wife were very welcoming and put in extra effort even on the wedding night. It went off without a hitch. The styling of the villas and separate rooms were second to none. All luxury. Pierre the Manager waited on all of our needs without a complaint Highly recommended for luxury accommodation and wedding for around 60 people. Our guests too commented on how happy they were with the whole package. Thank you Bruno, Lilka and your staff.

We had a very smooth time in the Villa Mathis — the entire stay (10 days) went off without a hitch. We would highly recommend this beautiful location to anyone wanting a true Bali experience. Pierre Antoine (Manager) is a wonderful host who was always available to us whenever we had any questions and was always helpful. The atmosphere in our amazing villa (the RED one) was delicate and serene ...gorgeous swimming pool, a wonderful Buttler available 24/24, comfortable bedrooms, spacious living room.... we could not be more pleased, thank you Pierre !

From being collected at the airport for express service to settling into the room, the staff were courteous, friendly and well informed. The room was stunning. It was dominated by a huge 4 poster bed with a very comfortable mattress and top bedding as you would expect. The room had attached a lovely outdoor shower/sink/wc bathroom and then a second outdoor bathroom containing a liberally cushioned daybed and an enormous stone tub open to the skies. The open air shower overlooked a working field, which was nice to look at, but a little un-nerving when the farmer who was working it turned up and could basically see the exhibitionist Bule showering !? That was a surprise, but nothing a slightly larger potted plant couldn't fix - pls note Mathis!

The location is away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak, but the hotel shuttle bus was convenient and comfortable and actually we were shuttled to Echo beach, so for location this hotel is convenient for both Seminyak and Changuu.

It was particularly enjoyable to wander around the grounds discovering each of the hotel's 4swimming pools and multiple gardens and communal areas as fortunately none of the villas were "privatised" during our stay. If I had a reason to get 30 friends together in Bali I would definitely do it here. I've not seen a lovelier place than this for that number of people.

The breakfast was good, but not outstanding and we also had dinner one night in the hotel and I would say the same about dinner. The spa treatments (massages) were decent but I have had better in other day spa's and hotels in Bali. The bar did make a lovely "special" cocktail for me one night - but I never knew the name. it was blue and had a lychee in it.

So overall the staff are friendly, the food and spa acceptable, the room (at least mine) really gorgeous and the overall grounds seriously stunning. Had the food and spa been as good as the grounds I would probably never leave the hotel. And I do intend to stay again. Particularly if I can get 30 friends to join me!

There are few experiences in life that literally leave you wondering whether you've officially departed from reality. The kind of experience that is followed by a strong pinch to see if you're dreaming. This is the state our Romantic Dinner at Villa Mathis left us in. We were in utter disbelief.

Lilke (one of the owners) was the mastermind behind our enchanting evening, and trust me when I say that she can build a romantic setting like no other! When I heard, "romantic dinner in the gardens", I imagined a table, a white tablecloth, flowers, and a bottle of wine. Boy was I wrong. The staff went to incredible lengths to create the mood and setting. Hundreds of flower petals lined the walk to our gazebo draped in white. Our names were written in rose petals, along with designs of hearts and other painstaking artwork. We sat next to a gorgeous infinity pool, with trees glowing from countless hanging lanterns. Aside from the soft music playing in the background, the gardens were silent. AN ABSOLUTE FAIRYTALE. My fiance probably would have given me "Man of the year award", but I had nothing to do with it! Thanks Lilke!

The dinner that followed only added to the incredible evening. Fresh prawns. Delicious greens. Succulent chicken cordon bleu. Balinese wine. It was perfect.

You'd think that after this dinner, the rest of the stay would be a let-down; you'd be mistaken. What perhaps made the stay most memorable for me (aside from the breathtaking pools and gorgeous rooms) was the staff. Always friendly. Always looking to engage in a conversation and so genuinely willing to share. We had the kind of conversations that stick with you long after you forget the little details of a trip.

Especially notable from the staff were:
Gede: The single most talented bar-tender on the island! Here is a man who meets you with a smile, asks you what kind of spirits you like, makes you a cocktail, and shares stories and laughs as you guzzle drink after drink. A remarkable and genuine person.
Budi the Butler: Budi became a great friend to my fiance and I, and were it not for him, the romantic dinner would have been nothing. He handled everything from rose petal art to pouring wine. A man with an incredibly kind heart, and an abundant amount of stories to share.
Yoga, Budi's right hand man: Yoga helped Budi prepare our romantic dinner, and he is a truly kind and bright soul. He was always waiting with a smile and a cup of tea and coffee, and we truly enjoyed getting to know him.

Yes, the rooms are fantastic, the pools are breath taking, and the food was outstanding: but what really made our stay at Villa Mathis, was the people. From top to bottom, owner to butler, they treat you like royalty and family at the same time, and it does not go unnoticed. Thanks Villa Mathis- we hope to be back!

Room Tip: Each room has a distinct color theme- all remarkable, but the red villas are especially picturesque!

My partner and I stayed here for 7 nights in February of this year and it was a blissful week spent in this beautiful villa surrounded by tranquil gardens and attended to by incredibly friendly staff. Free shuttle bus into Seminyak is fantastic and the driver is always friendly. Food is amazing. The only thing I would suggest would be a television in the rooms for nights spent in.

Villa Mathis is definitely one of the most unique hotels we’ve stay during our holiday in Indonesia. We would recommend this lovely boutique hotel to anyone.

The hotel location is perfect, not far away from the vibrant restaurant and bar scenes of Seminyak, yet the peaceful surroundings and the cleverly designed gardens provide that calm vacation mood and the privacy we need.

Rooms: each room is of different style and settings, we have a room on the first floor with a balcony facing the swimming pool and overlooking the rice field. The room is spacious and clean, richly decorated with local wooden artwork.

Common area: well-maintained and stylish, ideal for evening drink or daylight reading.

Restaurant: we were informed that we can have our dinner table arranged basically anywhere in the premises, and we did enjoyed our daily breakfast by the swimming pool. The local cuisine at the main restaurant is very fine, food nicely presented and very tasty. They have reasonable choices of wine, we had our first Balinese wine there.

Services: overall a very pleasant experience, the staffs are smiley and welcoming. Although there is no telephone in the room, our butler is just outside the villa, readily available at anytime. Unlike the standardized services in a 5* hotel, everyone at this small property gives a highly personalize service with sincere mind. Exactly what we are looking for when we chose a small boutique hotel anywhere we go – for warmth and true sense of hospitality.

Beautiful Villa, very friendly staff, shuttle service to Seminyak sometimes confusing to non Villa Mathis staff, better communication from Reception staff could alleviate this minor problem. A small refrigerator in each room would be a bonus for hot travelers in the monsoon season, a Television in each villa would also be a bonus for those that wish to watch it.
