Elephant Safari Park Lodge
Blaze Your Own Path
Why follow trends when you can create your own? At Elephant Safari Park & Lodge in Ubud, eccentric weddings are the in-house specialty. The realised dream of A-list entrepreneurs Yanie and Nigel Mason, one that started out as a quest to save a handful of rare Sumatran elephants, Elephant Safari Park & Lodge has blossomed into a world-class destination that offers couples one of the most creative wedding venues in Asia.
Set amidst 3.5 hectares of impeccably manicured tropical gardens, the award-winning property defines that highly sought after Ubud experience. Accommodating a wide range of wedding concepts, you may choose to book all 25 of the resort’s private villas that are designed around a lushly landscaped swimming pool with views overlooking the park. Thoughtfully conceptualised amenities include the elegant Park Restaurant and inviting Mammoth’s Head Bar, Terrace and Lounge as well as the luxurious Safari Wellness Spa. Boasting an additional five-star amenity that is completely unique, the pièce de résistance is 30 stunning Sumatran elephants that are on hand to help with the festivities.
If making a grand entrance is on your short list of desires for your wedding day, we can’t imagine a more memorable attention-grabbing strategy than arriving dressed to the nines atop a beautifully appointed elephant. Attracting brides and grooms from around the globe, including Australians, Russians, Japanese, Americans and Europeans, the resort’s events organiser is available to enhance the experience even more by dressing your elephant chauffeur to match your personal style and taste.
Choose from a romantic selection of glamorous Western accoutrements, including bejeweled wedding gowns and contemporary tuxedos, or allow the exotic flair of Bali’s rich culture to enhance your wedding experience with a full range of authentic Balinese dress and gilded head costumes available for him and her. To create a magical and extremely photogenic ambience, go all the way with classic umbul-umbul flags reserved to mark a special day of significance, regally costumed Balinese flower girls that will mesmerise your guests, and a lavishly draped gazebo where your elephant will lovingly drop you at to exchange your wedding vows.
Customised to fit every dream and budget, Elephant Safari Park & Lodge has designed an irresistible selection of packages that take even the smallest of detail into consideration. Whether you choose to bask in the warm glow during one of Bali’s famous sunsets, perfect for your wedding photo shoot or Champagne toast, or choose to mix in a classic twist with a traditional ceremony held at the resort’s purpose built stone and granite Wedding Pavilion, all of your needs and desires will be considered at the highest level during the wedding planning process.
Available to host up to 250 guests, all you need to do is sit back and relax while the resort’s professional team organises a spectacular wedding cake, magnificent tropical floral arrangements and musical entertainment that fits your theme. To depart in a style that’s as equally impressive as arriving by elephant, why not book the resort’s midnight blue Jaguar S-type to take you back to your honeymoon suite to celebrate your first evening as husband and wife?
