Wonderful experience
Reviewed 4 days ago

To see the elephants in such a beautiful well laid out place which is clean is fantastic. The staff truly care about what they do and you can see the elephants are well looked after. No pressure sales here or to ride them if you don’t want to. Excellent to feed them and having photos was a highlight

Must Do!

We didn't stay in the lodge but we had a one day visit. The locatiom is great and only half hour from Ubud. The elephant park is really beautifull and you can learn a lot of thinks about the elephants. You can also do some activities with the elephants. I thinks that every one who vistis Bali and special Ubud should visiti the place. Great for families also.

Staying at the Mason Elephant Lodge was a dream come true. The room was very comfortable and the staff was great. The best part of this hotel is of course the Elephants! Waking up each morning to an elephant greeting you at your balcony is the stuff dreams are made of! We loved every second here!

Great day out, and a great experience. A must do in Bali

If you love elephants, this should be top of your Bali must do list. I recommend the whole package, Full Buffett breakfast overlooking the elephants bathing pond, then slip into your swim gear and ride the elephants into the bath pond and scrub them down after, then give them a feed. Most importantly you can walk around the grounds and see where they are housed. These great creatures are treated very well and endorsed by so many visiting celebrities.

Loved and happy elephants

This has to be one of the most memorable and amazing experiences ever! We were unsure if we wanted to ride elephants in Bali so we researched and found Mason Elephant Park Sanctuary. These amazing animals have either been rescued or naturally breed in this stunning facility. Every single elephant is loved and cared for immensely. All commands are done with voice control and gentle pressure, no different to riding a horse, and taught through repetition and reward too! Not a ‘bull hook’ in sight!! They are having just as much fun interacting and playing. Not once did I feel like they were unhappy or mistreated.
The Mason Family are doing amazing work for the elephants and the people of Bali. Next time I would love to stay at their lodge and support their amazing cause! It’s safe to say I’m in love with Bali and the beautiful elephants I spent time with!!
