We loved our stay. Great overnight stay. Staff were great. Dinner was sooooooo delicious, yummo! We chose Balinese over western and were well rewarded, lunch too was delicious in the park but again Balinese. Bed was comfortable, my son was happy in his extra bed too. Room was spotless and had so much character. Awesome bathroom too. One staff in... More

The rooms were very attractive on the second floor overlooking the animals. One morning we were visited by the rhinos, zebras and wider beast which we threw the provided carrots to. The most fun was the night safari a ride in a steel cage with heavy mess to protect you. One of the tigers jumped on the top of the... More

The service by the lodge itself needs improvement. Despite of me writing to them 2 days before we arrived to confirm our airport pickup, no one turned up at the airport. When we finally spotted someone in the Mara River Safari Lodge uniform, we were told that our names were not on the guests' pickup list. It took us a... More

Stayed at the lodge for our last night on Bali and only wished we could have stayed another night. We had the tandala room which overlooked the rhinos & zebras, our 3 yr old son who is animal mad was so excited to stand on the balcony and watch the rhinos. Bed super comfy and really good quality linens that... More

Every time we travel to Bali we stay several nights at the Mara River Safari Lodge. The accommodation is fantastic with value for money. The accommodation price includes entry into the park. Whilst staying there you have the feeling you are staying in Africa. The reception and restaurant staff are so friendly with beautiful smiles. This time round I took... More

Watch over rhinos, zebras, etc. Good breakfast that was included, nice dinner a little bit on the pricey side for Bali. Watch the lions, meercats, hippo from dining room. Nice pool that... More

The park and rooms are wonderful. Children and adults will love and want to stay longer. You will want to relax here longer than a short stay. The amazing pool with elephants and rhinos passing in the background. Even more important then all to make it a great experience is the amazing staff. Whether a shop staff, restaurant or the... More

I spent one night here (not long enough) with a girlfriend late January. Booked through Wotif. Can not recommend this place highly enough. From the pick up in the jeep to take us to the reception area, to all of the staff, the buggy rides to the pool, the carrots in the room, the gloria jeans coffee delivery available in... More

If you fancy waking up in the morning, looking out of your terrace and finding yourself in the middle of a safari almost in the wild, seeing zebras, rhinos and elephants walking around (at a safe distance, of course) - this is your destination too! The rest is not "savage" at all and all is very safe here. Don't have... More
