    Meh...

    Tough one to explain... It’s overpriced and disappointing yet I’m glad that we went. I have no regrets dropping $700-$800 on our two day stay. First off, the Twiga rooms aren’t as cool as they seem in the pics online. I had visions of closely interacting with wildlife from my balcony and feeding them practically by hand. There’s actually a pretty far distance separating you from the animals. Especially sucks if you’re unathletic like myself and can’t even give a carrot a good throw. Same deal with the pool. There will be no baby tigers or rhinos hanging out poolside. It’s very buggy there. I do a lot of traveling so it’s not that I have unrealistic expectations of a bugless Indonesia. Heck, I’m currently surrounded by mosquitos in northern Bali as I type this review and am totally cool with it. ...but Mara is buggy’er than usual. There were quite a bit more in the room than anywhere else we’ve stayed. The doors and windows are not sealed off well. The staff doesn’t give that Balinese sweet hospitality vibe. They felt more reserved. They didn’t give the same “makes you feel like family” type of vibe that we experience elsewhere in Bali. So, after all of that complaining, why am I saying it’s a “must visit”? Freakin’ Tigers. Being so up close and personal with the tigers on the night safari was a once in a lifetime experience that made it worthwhile. Also, feed the white tigers during the day. Amazing!!!

    Absolutely amazing! We had a spectacular one night stay and wish we could have stayed longer. So special to be able to see and feed zebras and elephants from our patio and the Safari Park experience was just awesome! Comfy beds, warm and friendly staff, and one of the best free breakfast buffets we have ever had (and with lions made it incredible!) Definitely stay here!

    A unique and beautiful lodge in Bali. The staff was professional, friendly, genuine and caring. They certainly went the extra mile to make sure we were very well taken care of. The accommodations were comfortable, clean, and spacious and very much made you feel as if you were in an African lodge. The animals appeared well cared for and happy. The animal experiences were humane and truly an unforgettable experience. The night safari is an absolute must! Our son had a wonderful and memorable time feeding the zebras and wildebeest from our balcony and the staff was more than kind in giving him extra carrots to feed every time he asked. The Tsavo Lion Restaurant was an unforgettable experience and a unique way to dine. The safari park was conveniently located a short walk away and the free entrance made for ease in seeing the park at different times at our own pace. All around it was a wonderful experience and should the opportunity ever present itself we would be more than happy to return.

    This is a unique experience to stay in the park and able to watch the animals in their large natural fields and gardens. Have visited park many times now and always a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The animals are so well cared for and most exhibits you are in enclosed vehicle rather than animals being enclosed. My boy had learnt so much of the animals and understands how great the park does with endangered species. He speaks at his school and does reports on protecting the elephants and tigers. Through the Bali safari and Mara River animal experiences wonderful wildlife is being saved and children and adults can learn here and understand better. Thankful such a great place is available to enjoy and knowing your fees and visit will HELP not hurt animals! Thanks the wonderful staff make our stay so special.

    The staff and the beautiful animals were the stars. The night safari barbecue was a little hot and buggy outside. The fire show was fun. The spa could use a little updating. All and all a fantastic stay!

    Breakfast with the lions. Seeing them close in a natural setting. The comfortable rooms and balcony overlooking the wildlife and even being able to toss them some food. The staff are wonderful here, friendly and helpful always. Also like that the park is very strong in breeding programs and research and education to protect wildlife. They do amazing work for our environment.

    I found this hotel absolutely divine. No complaints or areas for improvements. The rooms are large, well appointed and done up in African safari motif. Bed comfy, bathrooms well equipped, security excellent. The animals are right outside your balcony. So peaceful day and night. I had a second floor room and the view was to die for. While I enjoyed the safari park and don't really need to revisit the park, If I return to Bali, I could easily spend a day or two at this lodge. I just loved it. So Perfect.
