The hotel is nice, food is ok service is great. We spent a great time at the park. In my opinion rather then coming a full day at the park spend the night and do the night safari it will be more relaxing and more fun. On day/night is more than enough for the park

We stayed for 2 nights in a Swala room which was on the ground floor. Service of all staff was accomodating and friendly. We arrived early so they gave us another room, gave us the key and told us to roam the Safari Park until our room was ready - this was exactly what we were prepared to do. Being...

We stayed at Mara River Safari Lodge for one night. It's an awesome place worth spending one to two nights there. We picked the family room which was luxurious and spacious with view of the Rhinos, Zebras and Ostriches. We also got an elephant to take us for breakfast each morning. We took the night safari and simply loved it....

Stayed 2 nights in the lodge, and it was unforgettable. I think, I became a kid again.. It was an amazing experienced to see those animals running around in front of your balcony. By just looking at them on your pj, already gives you the feeling of being a kid again. Upper lodge really was a blast. Room was so...

I wasn't sure when i booked here, i'm afraid it's going to be boring and nothing to do. But i was wrong. This is one of a kind experience. You can feed the animal from your room, the staff are very welcome, the room is tidy and clean. And also, don't forget to try the Night Safari!

I was skeptical about whether there could possibly be a proper Zoo (or Safari) right smack in the middle of Bali. But there is, and the photos on their website are largely accurate, save for the pool shot with a day bed facing the animals. I couldn't find that day bed. The room is a decent size, my children and...

We tried for weeks to book our accommodation through the Mara River Safari Lodge website however it was down the whole time. I emailed the safari park advising of this and our intent to book accommodation at the lodge however did not receive a reply. Needing to book this, we found the rooms were available on the Agoda website so...
