Tough one to explain... It’s overpriced and disappointing yet I’m glad that we went. I have no regrets dropping $700-$800 on our two day stay. First off, the Twiga rooms aren’t as cool as they seem in the pics online. I had visions of closely interacting with wildlife from my balcony and feeding them practically by hand. There’s actually a pretty far distance separating you from the animals. Especially sucks if you’re unathletic like myself and can’t even give a carrot a good throw. Same deal with the pool. There will be no baby tigers or rhinos hanging out poolside. It’s very buggy there. I do a lot of traveling so it’s not that I have unrealistic expectations of a bugless Indonesia. Heck, I’m currently surrounded by mosquitos in northern Bali as I type this review and am totally cool with it. ...but Mara is buggy’er than usual. There were quite a bit more in the room than anywhere else we’ve stayed. The doors and windows are not sealed off well. The staff doesn’t give that Balinese sweet hospitality vibe. They felt more reserved. They didn’t give the same “makes you feel like family” type of vibe that we experience elsewhere in Bali. So, after all of that complaining, why am I saying it’s a “must visit”? Freakin’ Tigers. Being so up close and personal with the tigers on the night safari was a once in a lifetime experience that made it worthwhile. Also, feed the white tigers during the day. Amazing!!!

After spending 6 nights in busy Seminyak we had booked a room at Mara River and booked the Safari lodge, and we were glad we did. We stayed in a family room, which consisted of 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom a mini kitchenette, living room and balcony. Although not modern, the room was still clean. The bathroom were and outdoor style with and window which we quite liked as it was something different. The balcony had view of the safari animals. We also we see the animals straight from the bed. It was so relaxing and calming to sit and watch the animals. The air conditioning in the master bedroom was working quite well. After sending out the technician and still not being satisfied, the lovely Fernando from reception organised for us to move rooms conveniently next door as it was late at night and we had already unpacked, he allowed us to keep our bags in the original room and sleep in the new room with the air conditioning working. This was much appreciated! We got to enjoy having breakfast and dinner with the lions and an elephant ride to breakfast. We done the night safari which was an unforgettable experience seeing all the animals, being able to feed them and have the tigers crawl over the cage. We also done the day safari which was at fantastic experience in air conditioned bus. Overall we are glad we had booked to stay at Mara River after an exhausting week in busy Seminyak, it was perfect to sit and unwind and listen to the animals

Hotel staff say for all the issues that you bring to their attention that this is our “Standard”. I should tell hotel and their mgt that your standards are very low. Its not worth the money that we pay for.
