Unbelievable. The softest sheets I've ever slept in. Super great.

Definitely recommend staying here. It's quite pricey (probably to assist with the animals care, etc) but well worth staying for at least a night for the experience....was amazing for us as adults so think it would be beyond belief for kids.

Amazing hotel! You get to feed ostrich, wilderbeast and zebra from your balcony for free. Staff are amazing, very attentive and friendly. The restaurant is amazing but be prepared to pay for it. Well worth staying a couple of nights.

You can see ostriches and zebras on your balcony and feed them carrots. Also you can swim with the view of rhinos. You will hear the howling of lions when you sleep. It was amazing experience.

A great way to experience Bali Safari Park”
Booked for 2 adults & stayed 1 night with our 4 year old, she shared the queen bed with us so was not charged any extra, & bfast for 3 of us was included. We had to pay extra for the tram ride tickets inside the zoo, but everything else was available to us. Great with kids as you can take your time at the park each day of your stay & go back to your room at any time, swim to cool off etc. Also great views of animals from the infinity pool. Bfast with the meerkats was fun & they had an elephant for photo opportunities as well. We had an ala carte dinner with the lions which was reasonably priced. This was our second stay (1st with our daughter). When you consider the cost of the Safari Park entry tickets and price of another hotel it is well worth staying the night as otherwise it's a very long day including transport if you try & do everything at the park, incl water park & rides etc. Recommend : )

2nd time stay”
My 2nd time stay in this hotel. Compare to last time, I would say it has regressed. When I make the booking, the children stay policy saying "Children below 11 stay for free using existing bed". But when I check-in, the policy changed became "Children 0-3 years old stay for free using existing bed". And I have to pay for my 2 nephews which 3 & 4 years old.

Best View from a Bed Ever”
Our room was beautiful and well appointed with a large window leading to a balcony providing us with a view of the rhino, the zebras and the wildebeests. A gorgeous pool was just a few doors down. We were even provided with carrots that we could throw to the zebras. Would have loved to stay there forever.

If you want that WOW factor when you enter your room look no further, the Twiga Rooms open up to the most amazing view of the rhinos, zebras and elephants. You also have the same view from the beautiful pool with a swim up bar. And that’s just the resort, you also have the whole safari to have an adventure in as well

CopyCat Singapore Zoo”
Mara River lodge is unique because the animals do walk up to your door. But the food is a tad bit disappointing as well as the fact that although it is expensive, everything else is an add on - even water. You feel stranded then with the limited choice and poor inclusions. The atmosphere is serene, the place is neat and safe. The animals are some but exciting to the kids.

If you book through Agoda, Booking. Com or one of the other sites, you don't get any extras. They should include at least the journey safari in the price! We enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was super.

Not a bad choice.”
Honesty speaking this hotel is Not worthy enough for us at all, 1800 RMB one night is not a good deal. If you have a kid who pretty much enjoy the time to find the animals in the zoo, it's not too bad. BTW, the lion restaurant could give you a wonderful experience to see the lions closely during your breakfast or lunch. You should live there one night because not every zoo would offer you such opportunity even the cost is not very well.

Wonderful animals, staff, food, location. Things to improve: heated swimming pool, make/allow animals come closer to the cabins as some of the cabins specially family suites are far away from the animals. Also cut some of the leaves. Tree branches to allow better viewing.

Everything is awesome except during breakfast. We were denied the side table by the lookout for lions. The lady staff couldn't explain why but just kept citing those seats are reserved but guess what? 1 and 1/2 hours later, the seats are not even full. Hah!! If those seats are only for family, please state clearly on your booking as please bear in mind, WE PAID THE SAME PRICE EVEN IF WE'RE NOT THERE WITH FAMILY OR WITH KIDS. If you would like to discriminate your guests like this, please charge differently.

Pros - some of the major safari included. Very prompt service Cons - Expensive night Safari. Family rooms away from the animal enclosures. Food choice limited. Away from the city so taxi hiring is an issue. Exchange rates lower than elsewhere in Bali.

Lovely hotel, bad animal practices”
The area is quite far away from everything but it is a lovely hotel. The view from my room was nice and I could see zebra and rhino. Special effort was made as I was staying for a wedding anniversary. When we had dinner with the lions the night safari was happening and every time a bus went past and left staff in cars would drive at the lions and stop suddenly to try and push them into places where the people on the safari would be able to see them. The next morning looking out my windows I could see people riding the elephants after 1 group was dropped off the elephant was agitated and trumpeting loudly. Clearly did not want to keep doing the rides. The keeper on its backs solution was to strike it in the head with a stick that appeared to have what looked like a nail or sharpened spike through it. I wouldn't visit the park again or stay even though I love to see the animals

good place but far too expensive”
nice experience for the kids and adults as well. but is far too expensive. we booked through a website and were told that we cannot be given any vouchers. were not given access to a few zones in the park as well, although this was no where mentioned at the site. were really dissappointed as the water park was in renovation as well.. not value for money at all. were charged 46.000 IDR for a bottle of water...after booking a room for 2 days there, even water at the restaurent was not complimentary or even reasonably priced!! the night safari was excellent though but again exuberently priced...and children were also charged, even under5!! go for a day out...staying there is simply ridiculous... and they dont even have a complimentary airport drop!..dissappointed.

Amazing experience”
We stayed one night and thats all we needed. Getting to wake up and walk out on to your balcony and be able to feed the animals was amazing. The room was stocked with a few carrots which we could throw (over a small trench which is obviously there to stop animals coming too close) to the ostriches and zebras. It took a few goes to get the zebras close but they eventually came and were within 10 metres of our room. There was a rhino and her baby and wilderbeast, but they stayed further away. You also got to see the elephants on their morning guest walk. If you are visiting the park, I would highly recommend this experience. The food however isnt great (from the restaurant) and there is not much close by. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
