Staying at Mara River during a stay at Bali Safari and Marine Park is a wonderful way to enhance the experience. The private bungalows overlook a grassy area where you have front row seats to safari animals during the day and night - you can feed them any time you like. You can also watch the elephant rides from your balcony. The rooms are nicely designed, touches of a safari feel - generally clean, interesting, functional. I enjoyed the stay more than my wife. She felt the facilities were not quite what she expected, and there was not enough done to try to control the mosquitos or whatever bugs were biting us despite burning those bug-away coils and staying within the masked bed. But as for a hotel stay with a child who loves animals - wow, this is just a fantasic experience. And i highly recommend the 8pm fire show available outside the restaurant every night - lots of fun, and just a two-minute walk.
