Amazing!! So many animal encounters
With the great deal we got with agoda, our stay here was to die for. We definitely recommend staying at least 2 night so you can see the whole park and take advantage of the pool and water park. Also try to get here by 10 am as all the shows start at 11. We stayed 2 night and got a free taxi from the airport. The room was amazing and the staff were so kind. We books the swala room and were upgraded for free! Those rooms looked nice also, but it think they were working on them. We never found out why we were upgraded. We also recommend going on the day and night safari. On the day you see more animals and at night you get to feed them and book them after you get to the hotel as they will give you a discount. Also try out the lion restaurant for lunch. Expensive prices for Bali but cheap prices for western rates. The food was pretty decent also. The breakfast buffet was really good. We had it on Sunday morning and Monday more they served us ala cart, so I don't know if the buffet is a weekend thing or just there weren't many guest there on Monday. But both breakfast were great and the lions are gorgeous. They eMbah Mek Trawangan Homestayntice the animals to interact with you by feeding them near you, but all the animals looks really healthy and happy. We had a magical stay here and highly recommend it.

What a wonderful getaway we recently had at Maya River Safari Lodge. We came there to celebrate my husband birthday and the whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable.

Poor air conditioning
There were only two small air conditioners in the room and it was quite hot to stay in the room. On the other hand, it was quite noisy as there was quite a lot of frog sound at night and the chicken sound in the early morning.

A must go in bali
You should plan to stay atleast 2 days here to enjoy all the facilities. It is totally worth the money. You get 15% discounts on all the pictures (if you want them printed and framed), on shopping in their stores, on your safari as well. Room: The first thing that sweeps you off your feet is the view from the window. Zebras, ostriches, wilderbeasts, Rhino, all grazing right outside your window. You are given basket full of carrots so you can feed them from the balcony. From time to time elephants also come with people on elephant safari and you get to feed them as well. It is so much fun! You get to hand feed zebras near the pool area, it was an amazing experience as well. You can contact reception and they refill your carrots whenever you want. Facilities: We checked in and booked our night safari, it cost us very less from the price quoted on website since we were staying here. We got picture with Marcel, the Albino python, amazing animal encounters. It is upto you if you want to get it printed or you want to take picture in your mobile only and same was told to us upfront by the animal care takers. It made us feel good about the place since they were not after money but wanted you to have an experience with you. Safari: The night safari was very thrilling, just like the picture you are in cage and animals are outside, tigers jumping on the cage for food. Their Fire-dance was also very nice and BBQ dinner was good as well. The next day we had not booked anything, since we were staying there we could attend almost all shows for free. We got pictures with Neema the baby lion, macaws, hornbill, orangutan, Elephants in our mobiles as well as got it printed and framed. All animal encounters were so good, you feel so attached to these animals after that. We sat with the lion twice on that day, touched him, it was just an amazing experience. we attended the very informative animal show, elephant bath, big cat show which was too good, elephant show was also awesome.

Lovely experience for the kids
We had a lovely visit - our kids were just so excited by everything from the jeep ride into the park. The elephant ride to breakfast was also amazing! Rooms are lovely with tonnes of space, comfy beds and lovely bathrooms. Value for money-wise I think it would be perfect if night and day safaris were included in the room price.

Worth the experience for a night stay
Place is interesting where you get to see wildlife from your room. You will get to see 1 rhino, a few zebras, wilder beast and ostrich from your room balcony and the pool. We were a bit uneasy with the bushes around the room area. Room area should be kept clear for safety reasons. Animal quality not that great. We felt it was too expensive for Bali. Food was a big let down, especially morning breakfast. Tsavo lion restaurant was good, but again there are only 3-4 lions around. Overall it is a good experience for a night stay.
