We googled 'elephants' near us whilst we were staying in Ubud and found Mason's Elephant Park. We looked at the options and booked the 'Bathe and Breakfast Tour + Elephant Ride' through Mason Adventures. We received an e-mail outlining full inclusions which were: Pick-up and drop-off from hotel Park Entrance Breakfast (buffet all you can eat) Elephant Bathing Elephant Feeding Elephant Safari Ride We arrived and started with the buffet breakfast. Lots of inclusions of cereals, noodles, eggs, sausages, bakery items, tea and coffee, juices, fruits. The restaurant overlooks the bathing area for the elephants. After breakfast we went to the bathing area where we were able to hop on an elephant as it entered the huge pond. The elephants submerged completely whilst we were on their backs, and they frolicked around the water. This experience was about 45 mins and so much fun. Staff use our phones to take lots of photos and videos. After the bathe was the washing. A hose and a scrubbing brush in the wash area, the elephants seemed to love it. No chains at all by any of the elephants we saw, and they seemed content with all the interaction. After the washing was the feeding, then the safari. Overall, easily the best animal experience either of us have ever had. A very well-presented animal elephant safari lodge.

Elephants chained to small circles - they say it’s good for the elephants, to stop fighting - but it’s clear that it’s a cruel practice. Only time they are allowed to move freely is with people on their back. The handlers let you give the elephants good food like fruit when you pay extra, otherwise they are fed wood and bark. Overall a bad experience and anyone with any empathy for animals can tell that the elephants are not happy. They pretend that they saved the elephants from worse treatment, which may be true - but way more have been introduced to the facility since the initial population was moved there. Shocked and sorry I went.

We paid 115 euros to wash an elephant 10 minutes. The elephant are not in the park, which is empty, only one elephant was there and it’s feet chained. Others are always used to transport tourist for tiny tour (10 min) and “lake” wash within a filthy water full of poo that one guy tries to remove. The cost is prohibitive, yet giving food to elephant is not free ! Everything is fine to make you pay more. The people were very nice but felt a bit tired of the tourists circus… The buffet gave us stomachache and beverage are not complimentary. Overall we felt like being cash machine to be milked dry by a sort of disney park. This is not comparable to other elephant parks in South Asia.

Magical from the moment we checked in . I have never been to a place so serene. the care of the elephants is priority in every way . They happily work with the tourist swimming & riding and just constantly eating . We stayed one night which was superb the room was stunning 5 * the service all around the lodge was 5* the food was excellent & we got an elephant lift to the restaurant in the evening. This really is a magical place and don’t hesitate to book ❤️

Me & my fiancé had an amazing time during our photoshoot at the park with Lukcip the elephant. Staffs are very helpful & friendly, really passionate with their jobs. Elephant’s needs & comfort is the priority but at the same time they make sure that we’ll get the best experience. Thank you so much!

We have just got back from an experience I will never forget, Mason elephant lodge . We did the jumbo wash and safari ride and it was amazing! The staff were friendly and courteous and went out of there way to make sure we got the elephant experience we wanted, at no time were we rushed away from anything and the jumbo wash was the highlight for me! I got to wash an elephant with the same name as me and I loved it! The elephants are well looked after and each have their own mahouts who make sure the elephant is not getting too hot , has enough food and is not getting stressed, we saw many of the mahouts take their elephant into the water to cool down. The buffet lunch was good, with many different foods from soup to dessert. The only downside for us was the travel time as we stayed 2 hours away from the park, so a very long drive there and back. All up a very good day well worth visiting.

Mason Elephant Lodge what an absolute gem ! This was by far the highlight of our trip in bali We stayed in the deluxe room for 2 nights, the room was clean and nice, they provided a turn down service and the first night left us little cakes and the second night little chocolates. They even provided a fruit platter every day Although the room is nice, nothing compares to the elephants! You got picked up from your room on an elephant for a tour around the grounds and also for dinner in the evenings Included in the price of our stay was breakfast, washing of the elephants and swimming with them also ! You could pay 50,000 IDR to feed them in the park of which I would 100% recommend doing The staff in the park are so dedicated to their jobs and the elephants that it was so special to see the bonds they have with their specific elephant The staff were also more than happy to take photos and videos on your own phones rather than having to pay for them The dinner here was so tasty and so beautiful, you got picked up from your room by an elephant, the park was lit up with fairy lights and you had dinner in the park surrounded by all of the elephants, it was such a surreal experience I have absolutely no complaints about our stay here, it was incredible and so special that I did not want to leave

It was really a pleasant visit. It is quite easy to find, the staff is very nice and helpful. You may buy just a regular ticket as I did. It gave you enough space to explore this amazing lodge and even get a chance to pet and feed elephants (just buy a bowl of fruit for 50 000Rp). I did really appreciate that there are other animals to see, like many cute fishes, peacocks, turtle and arapaima. Really do recommend for families, couples, group of friends, even for singles.

Didn’t really know what to expect, but you instantly get the impression that caring for these amazing animals is all they are focused on. The experience is 100% hands on with so many different activities involving the elephants. The staff are amazing and you can tell instantly that they love their job and the elephants with a passion. Could not recommend this experience enough ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Firstly, be wary of Google maps as there are two locations in Bali that Mason Elephant Park and Lodge is associated with. We ended up in the middle of a rice paddy at 1am and had a 2 hour detour. When we arrived we were informed we had an elephant park room upgrade from the ri e paddy room we initially booked. The upgraded room now meant that we were looking out onto the elephant sick bay. We watched a poor baby elephant rock from side to side with its leg on a chain for three days solid. To be honest, we would have much preferred the lovely rice paddy view as this experience changed our mind about the park and we didn't decide to ride the elephants. I understand the park have rescued endangered elephants and that's wonderful but it was distressing witnessing some of the elephants in the sick bay that we overlooked. We had hoped for more from this accommodation, particularly because Bali is so cheap and great accommodation can be found easily but Mason elephant park and lodge was certainly not in the cheap category.
