We made this stop on recommendation from our guide Kadek, en-route to our resort in Seminyak. We thought why not, a pleasant end to a hectic day of sightseeing. On driving up to the entrance you can feel the calmness and serenity of this place. We got our tickets (100.000 IDR just over £5) and walked outside stepping into a haven of flora and fauna, lush green plants and beautiful array of flowers, watching a magenta of coloured species dancing from plant to plant, teasing us as we chased around for photos.

We followed the footpaths and quickly snapped away at flashes of coloured butterflies fluttering past us in the hot humid air of the canopy. Tropical plants, shrubs and bushes surrounded a pond with lilies gently basking in the simmering afternoon heat. The atmosphere was peaceful and relaxed which touched our senses, we took our time to catch more glimpses of these majestic species.

A member of staff led us to a display of camouflage stick insects, letting you hold them for photos. This didn’t float my boat and my fear factor got the better of me, however, my friend took on this brave challenge whilst I clicked away. We then walked to an enclosure and were given brief explanations of hanging cocoons from development stage of moths and butterflies, twice the size of your hands, and opportunities for more photos. This part of the area looked dirty and less maintained, but I guess it could be due to limited financial resources. The park could do with a ‘labour of love’ and overhaul in order to bring it to a decent standard, this in turn will enhance it’s revenue and help boost tourist numbers.

We walked around the sanctuary at leisure taking pictures and entered a small dimly lit cave, this is where it got creepy dirty glass boxes hosted evil looking scorpions, tarantulas and some prehistoric black beetles lazily peering at us or either dead, most probably the latter, (phobia gone into an overdrive!). This was a complete contrast to what we saw earlier and I for one couldn’t wait to get out. This didn’t excite me, just scared me! We swiftly moved to an indoor gallery where it showcased a large variety of butterflies in glass displays, a little more pleasing to the eyes!

This isn’t a massive place you can cover it in a short time frame, perhaps stop here for a breather en-route to other places. A nice little oasis for exploring butterflies and creepy crawlies, discover at your leisure with a gentle stroll amongst tropical greenery, a fun and educational learning opportunity for kids. Staff are smiling and visitor friendly, but don’t expect great things here as no real element of surprise. Didn’t rank high on our list, but a satisfying and enjoyable end to a tiring day, hence the 3 star rating. Thank you Kadek. Indu & Versha.

The butterfly park had hardly any species at all. It was good to hold the giant moths and stick insects though. Probably an activity for families with children.

An opportunity to observe the 17 different species of Balinese butterflies through all stages of their metamorphosis. The park is beautifully kept and a great location for photography and learning. The guides are very helpful and allow some hands on experiences.

Sadly this park is a bit of a waste of time. Very few butterfly species, a few large moths, and I wouldn’t even call it a park. It is very small. Certainly not worth travelling any distance to visit. Disappointing. Most of the photos on this site are from 8-9 years ago. Maybe it used to be better

We came here on a really hot day and were told that most of the attractions and the park were inside - HOORAY... WRONG... all outside.
Ok no worries - so we pay our 100,000IR (approx $10AUD) to go in and the first thing you see is a HUGE map of the park. It looks large and very impressive so we are pretty prepared to spend a whole day here.
We start walking through and we see some really pretty butterflies which is rad and then you go into an undercover area where my kids got to handle from moths and stick insects which was gross but they loved it.
Then you walk out of there and... souvenir shop.
Seriously? Where is the rest of the park?
All in all we were there for 15 minutes....
Not worth the money.

A lovely little set up to view some bez3utiful butterflies and moths. Very small and only requires an hour but really lovely. The giant atlas moths were a highlight, very interesting. Some lovely photos can be taken. Little gift shop at the end.

Not so big, but they had some very beautiful butterflies! We even got to hold some of them, and the guides there were very good at explaining facts about them :) They also had scorpions and other stuff. Super cosy little garden :)

I visited the butterfly park with our 2 young children and we loved it. A bit expensive to get in but a love,y experience.
Ghe highlight was the little hatchery at the end with the giant moths and stick bugs which you could hold. Very cool seeing all the chrysalis up close.
It was very hot inside the butterfly house so be prepared !
