What we say:
Matahari lies between the beach road and the main road just past Little Bali and offers reasonable wooden bungalows in both private-bathroom and shared-bathroom flavours. The overall layout is far more spacious than Payung, with a leafy garden, a lawn and, well, rabbits! The bungalows themselves are okay; very stuffy at first but once you open the windows and run the fan they are habitable. Water pressure is more of a problem, but we managed. The big difference between here and Payung is the level of service. With a bit of effort this could easily be the best place to stay, but there just doesn't appear to be much happening on the organisational front. They do rent bicycles for 10 ringgit a day, which is a handy bonus. Surfboards can also be hired here.
