This hotel is located inside the Taman Safari Area. We booked their Junior Suite that face the safari area. The room was big but it was a bit tired. There is a balcony area and seating area. We order their room service, and we can recommend their Nasi Goreng Iga
Bakar, their Ayam Goreng and their pizza menu. The in-room dining menu was very limited during high season.

We get free ice cream or popcorn, ride and feeding, and free entry to Taman Safari. This hotel is more for family with children. You can use the voucher to feed meerkat, girrafe, or rhino. The riding voucher is for pony or horse. The elephant riding is paying riding ticket. To take pictures with animals (dog, birds, and baby crocodile) is Rp 30k ticket per animal.

Their signature activity is breakfast or dinner with girrafe. We booked the breakfast one. It was more like a 20-minute private photo session with the girrafes. We could not eat anything since the girrafes were really close, but we could take the cakes back to our regular breakfast table.

We also tried their carnivore feeding, which is much cheaper than the other Taman Safari location. We could feed bears, tigers, and lions.

During our stay, we spent two days exploring Taman Safari's Safari section and Rekreasi section. One day was not enough because it was really the biggest Taman Safari area in Indonesia. They also have Oriental Circus, which is included in the yellow bracelet ticket (free from the hotel for 2 pax per room per day). Dolphin show, Various Animals show and Temple of Terror show are a must watch.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. But proper mask wearing staff is almost non-existent.

Overall, we love the activities we can do in this resort and Taman Safari. But it was really crowded during holidays so it may be better to choose low season for more relaxing stay.

We went on a short family vacation to the Baobob and were not disappointed. Between the great location, incredibly friendly staff, good food, and ability to watch animals from the restaurant it was one of the most enjoyable vacations stays we have had in a while. Highly recommended!

It was just a dream to sit back and watch the sunrise over the mountains in the morning while hanging over the edge of the pool watching the animals wander below.
This place is a little remote so you will need a car to get there, use the local app Gojek to find a driver. The app quoted me $A17 from Malang.
The breakfast buffet had a huge choice of both Western and Asian food.
The staff were welcoming and super friendly.
Hand Feeding the elephants a wonderful experience.
Only hotel I have ever stay where the mini bar in the room was free.
May want to take your own snacks as there are no shops around.

I love animals so it was such a treat to see animals freely roaming around in a clean habitat. The animals were well cared for. Plenty of food and the keepers clean their enclosures. My room faced the animal safari & I sat on the balcony often to watch the animals.

Staff were polite but communication was a bit of an issue as they speak limited English so quite a number of miscommunication happened. Animal feeding times were not as advertised on the reception & they said it was over.So had to point out what their display showed (the time). Also we asked to book carnivore feeding on Sunday night & staff said okay. In the end we realised there was no carnivore feeding on Sunday night & we missed it as we were leaving the next day. Walks like the night walk, australian walks were advertised but not available when we enquired.

Food wise very little variety in their restaurant & not appetizing. Ordered food delivery most of the time. Mostly locals (Indonesians) stayed in this hotel so had difficulty communicating with staff in english. there were lots of misunderstandings due to this and I missed out on carnivore feeding & other activities as well.

The good: ANIMALS

The bad: Limited food options, miscommunication due to limited english. Location very far from any place of interest. Please hire some fluent english speaking staff to attract more guests around the world.

Located in the slopes of Mt.Arjuna, makes the ambiance so cool & relax due to the fresh air.
Very convenience for the family with small kids.
Nice swimming pool though it's really cold (hope to get warm water swimming pool when coming here again one day 😊).
Giraffee is the main attraction for the kids, along with meercat & zebra. Many kids activities, like pony or elephant riding, birds watching in the morning & educative story telling.

During the breakfast & dinner, there is kids food corner. My kids love the free flow pop corn!

Get the special price for buying ticket Taman Safari II that located next to the resort that applied for 2 days.

Definitely, we will come back again

Nice Place to Relax with family and kids.

Rooms are clean and well equipped. View is nice and especially when sitting in the balcony and view towards the animals.

Giraffe feeding every morning at 9am and have to buy ticket (1 ticket for 5 people).

Rhinoceros feeding possible on weekends and on public holidays.

Good resort to hangout with family.

We very impress with service in Baobab Safari Resort.
It have clean room with great landscape.
Our kids very happy when swimming on clean pool with great view.
But, I think you should review the restaurant service, because children with age under 5 years should pay their food with full payment, as long as we know kid not eat too much.

Jackpot. We entered the room and not knowing that there was a broken or near broken chair. When I sat down, after late night dinner with colleagues, as we use to sit, one of the chair's arm did collapse. So which side should you ask for a guarantee? Our health's condition impacting by the broken chair or the reparation cost of the chair.

The hotel choose the cost. We have to pay the broken chair for IDR 600k. This is our first time occupying a hotel with such business model, and our first time for such experiences ("buying chair").

Selling out the property they might have, eventually kind of interesting business model for hotel nowadays, I understand that.

I think it might be a best practice to prepare and bring our chair from home in the future.

So it's like entering a casino. Either you win or you lose. Which part of the items are merely ruptured. But the last person used them, should take the responsiblity. A gambling, A place for gamblers.

Really I didn't enjoy any experiences staying at this hotel. This is our first and last time. I did booked for two days staying but after day one, we decided to check out.

Hope this review got attention by the management, not the incompetent room manager. Should be reviewed by the Risk Manager regardless their BCP, and hoping this could help others who suffered the same as mine. It's really annoying being an unforgettable moment.

Dear Moengoet, Thank you for taking the time to record your comments on Tripadvisor following your recent stay at Baobab Safari Resort and for your review of the stay. We are equally perturbed about your unfortunate experience and sorry to learn of your frustrations causing you to leave the resort disappointed. We understand that our Manager on Duty has attended to you personally on the day where the mishap occurred. However, we regret that we did not meet any concessions. This incident has been thoroughly scrutinized and we ensured and committed that every single room has gone an immaculate inspection by our Housekeeping Supervisors prior to the guest arrival and this also applied in room 3401 which you occupied on Friday 12/02/2021. Please also be informed that room 3401 was last occupied on 07/02/2021 and was vacant throughout the week. Please be rest assured that this singular incident is not a representation of our standard of service. I hope this helps clarify your concerns with accuracy so there is no further outstanding confusion that tarnished our reputation.
