We stayed for two nights with our 14 and 8 year old children. We have had the most memorable holiday experience together. Our package included two nights accomodation in the Kifaru family bungalow right next to an infinity pool that looks over Zebras, rhinos and Wildebeests. The package included picking us up on elephants to take us to breakfast each...

We last stayed in 2013 and am now back again with our little girl this year. This time round we chose the Tembo room and this is a really big sized family room with 3 bedrooms and en-suite bath each. Perks of staying at the resort means you get the additional privileges; morning elephant ride daily to breakfast, entrance to...

Living amongst the safari animals is certainly a unique experience. This includes viewing animals while sitting down and having lunch/dinner. In addition, the night safari is something not to be missed. It would be good if is clearly indicated what safari components are included or not included in the room package during check-in. In addition, the quality of food for...

This resort/hotel is located inside Bali Safari and Marine Park so it offers something unique that probably you can't find at the other hotel. From the balcony of your room you can watch the animals roaming around, from Zebras, Ostrich, Elephants and many others, so it is really an unforgettable experience. However, the room looks outdated and not very well...

This hotel located quite far from the main entrance of bali safari. We approach the information counter and they send the shuttle to send us to this hotel. We book swala room located at the ground floor. The room only for occupancy for 2 adult. Kid older than 2yo need to pay more even without extra bed. This is the...

We chose to stay here 1 night for my daughters birthday as I saw how expensive it was to just enter the safari park and worked out it would be better to pay 1 night accomodation and get entry etc included. What a great decision. We got there really late at night, my 8 year old was half asleep...when we...

Thanks to TripAdvisor reviews, I knew what to expect. Stayed here bc thought it would be a wonderful experience for the kids (preschoolers), and it was. Be prepared to spend extra money and sometimes feel taken advantage of. I still found it worth it for the novelty of seeing zebras and ostriches from out balcony. One night was perfect, would...

My biggest complaint is that checking in and out takes forever. To check in the hotel you need to wait at the entrance for at least 20 minutes before checking in. They call the shuttle from the hotel to come get you which depending on your luck might be even longer. Once in the hotel is amazing, but the room...

I didn't expect to find a wild safari in Bali and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were comfortable. The highlight was the night safari. We were in caged trucks and managed to catch lions and tigers in very close proximity that I could touch the tiger's skin. Awesome. The animal shows was extremely well done and the restaurant had a...
