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.

Mara river bali resort stay was wonderful”
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.

Nice place for kids”
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.

4x4 touris a must. As is meals with the lions at Tsavo resturant. Loved feeding animals from our balcony. The staff were amazingly friendly and assisted with any issue. Multiple giftshops all well stocked and well priced. Public toilets were well maintained. Massage therapists were amazing and very well priced. We'll definately be back.

The elephants took us to breakfast”
It was clean. One of those places you can't stay long at. Costs a lot of money. And they said the rooms were booked when they clearly weren't and I had to wrangle for a good room. Having said that -- there was an experience that can't be duplicated elsewhere - the elephants came and took us to breakfast and my daughter and son were super thrilled by this.

Christmas & New Year Getaway”
We wanted to bring the kids for a Christmas & New Year getaway and being fans of animals, we decided to book a family suite at Mara River Safari Lodge Hotel. This being a niche hotel, prices were above average compared to your normal Bali hotel room, but the treats in store for the kids (elephant and safari rides, dinner with lion) were well worth the extra. And now for the disappointing bit. On Day One when we checked in, the air-cond in one of our rooms were not working. They "fixed" it but it broke down at night. On Day Two, they "fixed" the problem again but there were intermittent noises. On Day Three, it worsened and the technicians had been coming in and out of the room up till 11+ pm now and the kids can't sleep with the racket and interruptions. Very disappointing maintenance. Plus the fact that there was a piece of washing material found in the younger kid's soup during dinner at Tsavo Restaurant, spoiled an otherwise good holiday. The staff were brilliant though.

A whole new experience of safari inside the park itself”
The concept is fantastic You will enter the resort that built within the park already The experience is different between the other theme park in Indonesia even to compared with their sister theme park at cisarua (apart from the weather) It is a priviledge staying inside here, where just behind the pool, you can see the savannah and with the carrot provided inside the room, get the zebra closer and caress them like your own pet It is amazing feeling compared to go to the park itself Breakfast at tsavo lion is different experience also where you had your meal and just a glass between the lion It is one experience and should try!
