Something very different and highly recommended.

Pros: Friendly staff, amazing views from hotel room. Lots to do and see. The dining experience alone is incredible with the lions watching on.
Cons: The room was not cheap by Bali standards and we understand you are paying for the experience, but there was a number of activities not included in the
We had a wonderful long weekend at this amazing place. Very relaxing with lots of activities to fill your days and nights. Friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended, an experience of a lifetime.

Worst breakfast in Bali!

Enjoyed our night. Family room right by pool but could not see the animals from our room. Rates are expensive and I would have expected entry to the park to be included in the price. Elephant ride to breakfast was a highlight.
