Bali’s renowned Ma­son Ele­phant Lodge is a 27room bou­tique ho­tel set within the Ma­son Ele­phant Park that blends lux­ury with ele­phant con­ser­va­tion. Win­ning the 2016 and 2017 World Lux­ury Ho­tel Awards for Best Lux­ury Lodge and Best Eco Sa­fari Lodge, the lodge and park are sit­u­ated in the cooler trop­i­cal coun­try­side north of Ubud and sur­rounded by small vil­lages, work­ing rice fields and rain­for­est. The park started out as a Su­ma­tran ele­phant res­cue project, while the lodge de­vel­oped out of the strong de­mand from guests to spend even more time with the ele­phants.

There is a va­ri­ety of com­fort­able ac­com­mo­da­tions avail­able, each with a dis­tinc­tive ele­phant touch to the decor. Some pro­vide ter­races that look di­rectly onto the ele­phants’ rest­ing pods and the amaz­ing

ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing able to hop onto an ele­phant at your front door to be chauf­feured on a jour­ney in the jun­gle, or even just to go to din­ner. Choose from the el­e­vated wooden Lake View bun­ga­lows, the se­cluded Paddy View rooms, the cosy Gar­den View and Park View rooms, or the Taro Suite for an ex­ec­u­tive ele­phant ex­pe­ri­ence, on- call but­ler, wra­paround ve­randa, re­lax­ation lounge, pri­vate bar and your own Jacuzzi.

Lodge guests also have ex­clu­sive ben­e­fits that in­clude plenty of ways to get up close and per­sonal with the ele­phants with all- day ac­cess to the Ele­phant Park and botan­i­cal gar­dens, the op­por­tu­nity to bathe an ele­phant and tour the ele­phant nurs­ery, as well as ac­cess to the Spa, gym and Mam­moth’s Head Bar & Lounge.

"Bali’s unique award-win­ning re­sort where rare Su­ma­tran ele­phants are your neigh­bours."
