Bali Huts

Matt's Homes Bali Huts

Balinese Huts have been used by the Balinese people as a place to unwind and also shield themselves from the intensity of the sun’s rays. The Balinese Hut has a much breezier, shaggy appearance than the neat finish of the African Thatch. It certainly gives your backyard or pool area a tropical look and feel and our Bali Huts come in many different styles and designs.


Bali Huts are a natural and environmentally friendly thatch roof that will enhance your outdoor area and create a resort like atmosphere. Matt's Homes manufactures high quality Bali Huts to stringent Australian standards. Our Bali Huts come in many different sizes and we can custom build to any design specifications. Like the African Thatch, the Balinese Hut is a cooler outdoor gazebo than one made with tin, polycarbonate or shade cloth. The main difference between the African Thatch and Balinese Hut is to do with the look and feel.


Another reason people have responded so well to thatch roofing is that the material is not 100% airtight. If you put a balinese hut over your spa area, you needn’t worry about steam being captured in the roof. A steel roof would capture the moisture on the roof, however because the steam can escape through the thatch roofing, it provides a much better outdoor gazebo option, particularly over spas or pools.
