Lovely park for a visit. You can wash the elephant’s or take a swim with them & also feed them. They are well looked after. Has a nice restaurant over looking the park. We didn’t do the swim but now I wish I had. Staff were friendly & answered any questions regarding the elephant’s.

There are so many views about this place and I was not sure what to expect but our family had the most incredible time. The workers are all so lovely and we felt comfortable that the elephants were being cared for and loved. To experience benign that close and touching and swimming with these incredible animals was a once in a lifetime experience and also quite emotional. It is not a cheap day but we’re so happy we went and came away with photos and memories of a great day out. Ignore the negative posts and go and see this for yourself and support the amazing people that work there as many lost their jobs during Covid-19

Well organised and family friendly. Around 1.5 hour drive from seminyak. Takes a few hours to complete all day activities (depending on the package purchased) Costs around 1.1 m rupiah a person but totally worth it Would definitely come again the next time I'm in Bali

We visited this Elephant Park back in 2009 and were pleased to see a sanctuary that seemed to be caring for abused elephants. They were chained to pads but this we were told was for their own protection and they were moved regularly and had big open areas to move freely. We revisited in July and the first elephant we saw was on a pad that was full of dung and the poor thing was rocking back and forth in some sort of engrained show dance. Constantly. It seemed as if he had gone mad. There were others that exhibited behaviour that just didn't seem natural. I think these individual elephants may have been the ones that were trained to perform to visitors in the past. There were lots of signs on the way up to the venue promoting other 'Mason' business'. I hope the original idea to help these beautiful creatures hasn't been lost in a charge for commercialism and profit.

I bought vouchers for a stay at the lodge during Covid-19 lockdowns to support food and vetinarary care and was eagerly anticipating visiting and staying here when restrictions were finally removed. The excitement of arriving at the lodge and seeing the lush gardens was only exceeded when we walked into our room and saw the elephants through our window. Initially I was concerned when I realised that they had a chain around their leg which was attached to an individual pad, however it was explained to me why this was necessary to ensure safety to the animals, staff and visitors. I researched and discovered that this information was indeed accurate given that there were several Bulls present and the elephants were not from a matriarchal led herd but instead a collective of rescued animals from camps in Sumatra. The story of how Nigel and his team rescued and relocated the animals is inspirational. The elephants are cared for by their mahouts, some of whom have accompanied them from the camps in Sumatra and have been their carers for 25 years. The interaction with the elephants is very special, to meet these beautiful beasts, to bathe them, feed them and realise their cheeky personalities is something we will never forget. What will stay with us forever is wakening in the mornings and watching the baby elephants being walked and trained with an older elephant and the elephants have free roaming around the park under the supervision of their mahout. The park is a beautiful surrounding for the elephants to roam, the gardens are lush, stunning and exceptionally well maintained. It is a peaceful environment away from the busy areas of the island. The restaurant blends in well the surroundings and has a view over the lake and park. The lodge was spacious and authentic and very comfortable and the view of the elephants from the balcony is a site we never got sick of looking at. The elephants are staff are looking forward to welcoming more visitors, would highly recommend a trip to see them

Wow, wow, wow what an incredible experience we had at Mason Elephant Lodge. We booked to stay for 2 nights in a park view room, the room was stunning with views of the elephants from your balcony. Breakfast was part of the package and we added airport pick up, very efficient and evening meal, the food was stunning and the service was so attentive. We were one of only four lodges occupied , so it was beautifully peaceful. And now for the main reason to come here, the elephants, incredible. They are very well looked after and loved by their mahouts, the bonds are so strong and unbreakable. We washed and bathed 2 stunning elephants, and we, the mahouts and elephants had so much fun, this along with a safari ride and elephant chauffeur to the restaurant for evening meal is included in the package. You can buy extra bowls of fruit to feed the elephants for 50,000IDR, yes £2.80, and what an amazing experience. If you love elephants, this is for you, the owners and staff go beyond to make your stay special and the elephants for all, are the stars of the show. You will leave beaming from ear to ear. Thank you all at Mason Elephant Lodge.

First off don’t believe any negative reviews that are written on here they’re simply written by people who are members of PETA and Extremist. This place treats animals better than most people treat people and I stayed here for three days did every activity multiple days and the elephants have a great relationship with all of the trainers. Elephants are well cared for well fead and appear to be very happy and have been rescued from bad conditions in other parts of Indonesia. The hotel is wonderful the food is great the service is amazing and you can’t be this experience if you’re visiting Indonesia for the money! Highly suggest

We have been to many wildlife parks, zoos, animal rescues, and sanctuaries. Rarely have we been excited to go or when we left… this was different. We were greeted by Lenny Wayan upon arrival and she walked us through every step of this magnificent park, and she is fabulous! Every bit of our experience was first rate and although I’m typically not raving about things of this nature, I absolutely loved it. It’s extremely well maintained, the animals well cared for and friendly, overall outstanding! We were all thrilled. Truly a once in a lifetime experience to get not only up close and personal but actually touch, hug, kiss, and interact with elephants. We are truly grateful for this time, and strongly recommend you don’t miss it.

Came here for the day to visit the elephants and we had an incredible time. The elephants were very well trained, their keepers were super friendly and it was evident that the elephants were treated well. We got the opportunity to bath Yanti, one of the female elephants and then go with her into the large pool, it was such fun and she enjoyed eating a lot! Included in our excursion was lunch which was very tasty and you were able to sit overlooking the elephant pool so you could watch the elephants bath!

I have just spent the weekend at the park, and it was absolutely amazing, I last stayed their in 2018 and I thought because of the pandemic the standards may have slipped, but no! It was better than ever! Here the elephants come first, they are loved so much by all the staff and are happy and healthy, without the park and the mason family these elephants would be dead, watch operation jumbo on YouTube to find out the story,. The elephants all have their own little pads, their safe place to eat and sleep. Yes they are at times chained there, but it’s for their and the parks safety and they are happy, go, spend time there, ask questions, please don’t judge without learning the facts. The hotel was one of the best I have stayed in anywhere, I cannot find fault with anything, the food was excellent and I thought very reasonable, try the duck, it was so delicious
