If your goal in visiting Bali is to purchase fake polo shirts, stay at sleek hotels with techno beats thumping in the lobby and hang out in bars populated by inebriated college kids then by all means book a hotel in the tourist areas near the airport. The Matahari offers a chance to experience the unspoiled and uncrowded north shore of Bali in a luxurious and tranquil setting. The hotel is German owned with a French general manager. While most of the guests tend to be European (which I find to be a distinct plus), Americans are very welcomed and well treated here. Don't be intimidated by the four hour drive from the airport. The scenery is spectacular with terraced rice fields, charming villages and mountain top lakes. Definitely take advantage of the hotel's reasonably priced pick up service using its fleet of comfortable modern mini vans. The hotel's property is beautifully maintained and the villas are luxurious. The large pool is gorgeous and serene. While the hotel's beach is not suitable for swimming, the best snorkeling in Asia is only a 20 minute boat ride away. I have visited Bali many times and I urge anyone coming to Bali to visit the north shore and stay at the Matahari. It is a blissful and rejuvenating experience.

- On the northern coast of the island, set amongst fragrant lotus and frangipani flowers, this splendid village consisting of Balinese pavilions overlooks the sea. Each ornate bungalow has hand-carved wooden folding doors, a tropical garden and an outdoor shower with a stone dragon: pure nirvana.
