Villa Mata Air occupies an incredibly peaceful and picturesque spot, where the only sounds come from birdsong and flowing water.  There are plenty of spaces for quiet contemplation, like the riverside deck, cushion-filled bale, and hidden temple gardens. The design is attractive, contemporary and comfortable, but it’s really the enchanted setting that seals the deal at Mata Air.  I am hardly a tree buff, but found myself deeply enamoured with the lush, leafy giants wrapped in webs of ropey vines that perfectly framed the pool and created the most tropical of vistas.  The neat design of pavilions and manicured lawns contrast well with the wilder riverside aspects, where untamed foliage creates a ‘back to nature’ setting.  The riverside studio pavilion is a fabulous addition; as a bedroom it makes for a private romantic hide away, alternatively, as an additional lounge area, it’s a great place to relax and enjoy the views and the sounds of the gurgling river.  The complimentary driver was great when we were in the mood for a change of pace, even if it was just a meal down at Echo Beach.

Highlights

Floating in the pool and looking up at the towering trees; the soothing hum of the flowing river; reflective moments on the timber deck of the riverside pavilion overlooking the temple gardens. The spotlights that illuminate the trees by the river enhance the air of enchantment.

Surprises

The only satellite TVs were in the room adjacent to the master bedroom and the studio pavilion – but each room has its own DVD player and there were plenty of DVD’s to choose from.

We loved it from the minute we stepped in. It was better than what we had seen on the website. The stream, the rice paddies and the topography of the villa made it very surreal. It was a very relaxing experience. Special thanks to Agung, our chef, who made some wonderful Indonesian delights and can do very well with some Italian dishes too. The staff, Ilu and Ayur were very nice too and gave us a few rides on the motorcyles to the beach and were generally very helpful. We would love to be back and will gladly recommend this our friends. Infact, we have already been talking about it to our friends. Before I finish, a special thanks to Paul Robinson for proposing this villa and for his excellent assistance with the bookings. Thank you,
