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 and precision cut lawn. The bungalows themselves are tight on space, but adjacent private verandas open it up a bit more. They rent bicycles for 15 ringgit a day, which is a handy bonus. And there is a well-stocked mini-mart directly across the street. Matahari is also home to the Cherating Point Surf School, with lessons as well as board rentals available.
