The water palace is beautiful, but relatively small. We personally preferred the less visited water palace Ujung a few kilometers away.

The drive was interesting and only about 40 min we did some back streets to experience a little bit of village life. We paid 50k for 4 people to get in not including the swimming fee and... More

We visited this as a family in august. Was not too crowded. Nice garden with water features, with lot of big fish and where you van walk on the water. Not very big. Think our visit took about 45 min.

We hired a driver for the day to travel from Kuta to visit this Kings water place. It is a lovely, relaxing place to visit. The gardens are beautiful and the koi fish in the massive ponds are huge. You can purchase small bags of fish food also to feed them. I think it would work out better to visit... More

We had a blast on the stepping stones and swimming in the pools. Gorgeous place to stop and refresh after a tedious drive.

Very beautiful water palace designed in 1948 by the last king. The palace is a mix of Balinese and Chinese architecture. Use the time to take a bath in the king's pool, or just walk around and enjoy it all. Remember swimwear
