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
