Car­ry­ing lines of ar­ti­san choco­late, gelatos and baked goods, Ma­son Gourmet is a culi­nary force to be reck­oned with. But be­fore delv­ing fur­ther into the brand, one should recog­nise the name­sake fam­ily be­hind it. Nigel and Yanie Ma­son, part­ners in busi­ness and in life, along with their chil­dren, first gained recog­ni­tion with Ma­son Ad­ven­tures. The

fam­ily em­pire started out of­fer­ing raft­ing ad­ven­tures, be­fore branch­ing out to other fun and ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing the famed Ma­son Ele­phant Park & Lodge, jun­gle bug­gies, trop­i­cal trekking and moun­tain bik­ing, among oth­ers.

Af­ter the un­ri­valled suc­cess of Ma­son Ad­ven­tures, the fam­ily cre­ated Ma­son Gourmet. The gourmet line com­prises Ma­son Gelato, Ma­son Bak­ery and Ma­son Choco­late. Ma­son Gelato draws in­spi­ra­tion from flavours around the globe, in­cor­po­rat­ing them with lo­cally sourced in­gre­di­ents to bring a lo­cal touch in its va­ri­ety of re­fresh­ing flavours. In the other corner is Ma­son Bak­ery, parad­ing sweet treats of hand­crafted pas­tries and con­fec­tions, cre­ated by the brand's skilled bak­ers.

De­serv­ing a spot­light of its own is Ma­son Choco­late, where top-qual­ity In­done­sian co­coa beans are metic­u­lously pro­cessed, re­sult­ing in ar­rays of sin­fully choco­late­laden bites – from deca­dent choco­late bars and thins to the del­i­cate truf­fles and pra­lines. The choco­late bar se­lec­tion spans from milk choco­late with 43% co­coa, to dark choco­late with 71% and 85% co­coa, with other unique flavours in­clud­ing rock salt dark choco­late, palm sugar white choco­late and chilli dark choco­late, and all-time favourites like caramel milk choco­late, white choco­late, fruit and nut dark choco­late and hazel­nut dark choco­late.

If there's one thing the Ma­son busi­ness em­pire is known for, it's for the mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence it of­fers to guests. The same thing goes for its choco­late line – it's not just shelf af­ter shelf of ar­ti­san choco­late, Ma­son Choco­late also of­fers the ul­ti­mate choco­late ex­pe­ri­ence. The Ma­son's Bali Choco­late Tour and Tast­ing pack­age has been cre­ated to in­tro­duce the best hand-picked co­coa beans sourced from sev­eral re­gions in In­done­sia, and at the same time to pro­vide an ex­pe­ri­ence to re­mem­ber for the whole fam­ily.

The tour in­cludes a be­hind-the-scenes fac­tory ex­pe­ri­ence – where you can watch the elab­o­rate process of mak­ing the choco­late prod­ucts and, of course, the best part is the gourmet choco­late tast­ing, where you can have a taste of the var­i­ous del­i­ca­cies and de­cide which one is your favourite.

Have we men­tioned that the choco­late fac­tory is lo­cated at Ma­son's Koko Bambu restau­rant, a beau­ti­ful bam­boo struc­ture blessed with sooth­ing views of in­fi­nite rice fields and an al­lur­ing swim­ming pool to cool off in? It's where the ex­cit­ing Ma­son Jun­gle Buggy ac­tiv­ity takes place, and the venue is also a short drive away from the fa­mous Ma­son Ele­phant Park & Lodge. So it's al­ways a sweet idea to make a day out of it. With Ma­son, you'll get a bite or two of the qual­ity choco­late, a cone of lush gelato and an abun­dance of fun ex­pe­ri­ences you will cher­ish for a long time.
