We heard about this place from friends & thought we would make the trip for lunch.
We caught a metered taxi from Kuta across the 'sea bridge' we paid the rp10,000 toll. The kids ( & hubby) loved driving over the water & it was a very relaxing drive...worth asking for & paying the bridge toll. Taxi cost us under rp100,000 but didn't know where the place was. It's not really signposted but it's down past a bigger resort called The Bay, once we were on that street we began to see signs for it.
Had to walk a bit to find the entry from the beach side.
We had 3 boys aged 4,5 & 6 plus a 2yr old ( lugging the pusher was a pain). We were greeted at the gate & waved in. Several double story tree houses plus a ship & what looked like desert camps (either open air or canopy) dotted around. Paths were made from fabric with oil lamps on the side. I'm sure it looks spectacular at night with all the 'camp fires' and lit pathways. But watching the over excited kids clamber up the bamboo tree house made me glad we had come in day light.
The place was pretty empty so we had our pick of seats ( I imagine evenings might be a bit harder to get the 'best' tree house ;)
We picked the top level which seemed sturdy. We were given menus promptly & there were some maracas & drums for the kids to play with after we ordered. Low tables & cushions spread around for seating. The final steps were steepish ( I'm a little unnerved by heights). Our 5yr old was more interested in running around & was quite hyped up, so we relocated to the lower platform ( which was actually ALOT cooler than the top one). Drinks were delivered & the kids explored the ship & swung in the hammock chair til the meals arrived (again great in daylight, would not have let them run off in the dark)
Meals were priced as expected around hotel/resort pricing. Luke warm as expected seeing as they had a fair walk to make it to us. Good sized portions. Hubby's hot dog bun was stale & actually had mould on it ( another reason to be thankful for a daylight/lunch visit) but it was whisked away & replaced with a fresh one very quickly.
After lunch the kids had fun on the rope swings & tightropes ect. Toilets were clean & had paper. Great hand washing area. Which we needed because it was quite dusty & of course the kids did some digging.
We had some trouble finding a taxi home. The security guy got hold of a freelancer who wanted rp120,000 and wouldn't budge, to the point of driving away. So we took it as we were hot, dusty & tired ( he went on the mainland road which was longer). Found out later there is a big shopping centre near by? But we couldn't tell from the side we entered.
So a fun experience for the kids, kind of wish we had looked at a map to see where it was & what was near it....we could have maybe made it a longer trip & worth the taxi costs.
The website didn't say a great deal ( we weren't even sure if it was open for lunch) so we weren't expecting to much...but definitely no games or treasure hunts. Just an average meal in a novelty setting. That said the kids loved it & we would probably visit again just better prepared.
