Show reviews that mention
Totally overpriced and underwhelmed.. We counted 6 zebra and 1 rhino and 2 wildebeest 1 giraffe in front of room the whole stay.. Everything was such a rip off including room at $274 AUD and $30 AUD just to feed giraffe.. We went to caluit park in coron Philippines year before and walked beside many giraffe and zebras for a fraction of the price and fed them etc.. Also i jhave been to africa and was totally underwhelmed.. The food was way overpriced and not very good.. My only good thing to say was the staff tried there best and gave my wife a birthday cake which was thoughtful.. They were very friendly and tried there best..
Great stay in the safari park ”
Very special stay where the at the balcony of the room, we can see zebras, rhinoceros and other animals. Carrot is provided for us to throw from the balcony to feed the zebras. It was quite fun and special accommodation. We had dinner (ala carte) and breakfast (hotel buffet breakfast) at tsavo lion restaurant, where the lions were there watching us while dining, another special experience. The ticket to the safari park was included however the safari journey by minivan need to pay(rp 150,000 per pax), where I feel that should be included to the room package. The room was quite clean and comfortable bed. The lightning in the bathroom was quite dark during the night. Our request for anniversary celebration arrangement was well organised with bed decoration and a complementary cake.
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 : )
Great for animal lovers!”
We could see zebras, rhinos and buffalos? from our room and had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant while watching lions. Free elephant ride up to restaurant was cool and we had a close look at the animals passing by. enjoyed meerkat feeding with a small fee and a fire show at night was a bonus. able to see all animals and shows at the safari park over two days. Otherwise we wouldn't been able to see much in one day because of the heat. The only downside is food at the restaurant is too overpriced.
Pros: The hotel is inside the Safari Garden and the animals are so close. We can feed the zebra from the balcony. We had dinner and breakfat in tsavo lion restaurant with the lions outside the window. The breakfast was included in the room rate. The staffs are nice and helpful. Con: Pricey. But overall worth the cost if you love the experience.
Spent two night.. My son loves it so much.. The night safari, the view from our balcony, the pool , acces to the zoo.... For me the food are not good ...its better to eat at uma resto than in tsavo.. Pool staff needs to be chill about kids splasing the pool bar... Other than that it was a great stayed..

It was 2nd time to visit here. My children really like this resort especially safari and pool with a safari view. I strongly recommend this resort if you have children under 10 years old. However, my wife couldn't bear poor sanitation of lodge, lots of ants and mosquitoes in the room. And if you expect great dinner or breakfast with lion, it 's really good chance to be here. But don't expect the quality of food. Without it, this is the best place with your young children.
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.
Amazing stay in Safari ”
We had a wonderful 4D3N stay in Mara River Safari and love the animals in Bali Safari. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. Love to feed the animals with carrots and excited on the night safari tour.
Very Unique Resort”
International standard of service and cleanliness at somewhat local price point. Awesome close up tiger experience. Lots of free activities. Waking up in a quiet Balinese morning with zebras and wilderbeast is an amazing experience. Staff is very polite and accommodating.
best hotel I've staying in ”
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.
Rooms were clean and pool area was great, overlooking the rhinos and a few other animals. We got an elephant ride to breakfast which we did not realise was included in our booking until we checked in. Fire show and python in lobby was good for after dinner, did not think the food served in the restaurant was that great and it was very expensive.
Great for family with adult children and elderly”
I had had difficulty finding suitable activities for my family in Bali as all of us are young adult and my grandma can't walk well. We're a group of 7 so we booked one night at Tembo family suite with additional bed. The room is spacious and we can see animals from our room. Staffs are very responsive to my email inquiries. Breakfast (we did not expect elephant ride!), entrance into safari and animal show are included in agoda price. We paid additional for Safari Journey which is an unforgettable experience as we can see many types of exotic animal at close distance. We also had dinner at Tsavo Lion Restaurant. It was my mom's birthday and we were given birthday cake on the house with a loud parade of birthday song from all the staff. We took selfie with the lions, even in the male toilet. I'd recommend this resort to families looking for memorable experience!
Dine with lion!!!”
Spent one night here with my family and one child, service were excellent and wheelchair accessible. I booked a family room which have two room inside and the view is unusual. U can spot the rhino, zebra, elephant etc from the balcony. Definitely will came back again
Cant wait for more animals at our backyard”
We were expecting the animal will be more like taman safari puncak. Unfortunate it isnt. But the safari night package is incredible. The package also fantastic, you can go in and out for safary journey/explorer as many times you like
Great Accomodation with Great View”
A great idea to spend a night here at the safari. The balcony of the lodge face directly out and you could see the wild animals right in front of the lodge. Animals that we saw were zebra, ostrich, ox, elephant. Great breakfast too accompanied by female lion. We recommend just to stay for a night as there aren't much thing to do in the safari.
Love this place ”
Was our second stay here and love the place. Just find the restaurant and pool bar prices very over priced compared to anywhere else in Bali. They serve the same food and drinks at a much larger cost. On a 2 night stay we actually take a lot of food and drinks so we don't have to spend so much extra money on the same things. Amazing rooms with amazing views of animals...will keep going back for this.
Near to nature!”
My kids had lots of fun over my 3 days 2 nights stay. It's a zoo cum resort concept. The zoo has lots of animals and shows through the day. Can feed animals over your balcony in the room and the restaurant is beside the lions' den. This is as close as you can get to the lions while dining! The night safari tour was excellent as you drive through the wilderness in a "cage" and the kids get to feed some herbivores too!
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. I w
