If you are looking for a one-stop shop when it comes to fun tropical activities and programmes for the whole family, then Mason Adventures Bali is the ultimate answer. The Mason empire started decades ago as a white-water rafting operator and elephant park, before developing into the range of exciting and educational entertainments we know and love today.
Of course, talking about Mason Adventures would not be complete without mentioning its Elephant Park and Lodge, scenically ensconced in the lush Taro village, just a little north of Ubud. The park is home to the 32 Sumatran elephants, and as the only animal welfare-accredited elephant park in Bali, Mason Elephant Park & Lodge makes sure that the elephants’ wellbeing is a primary focus.
At the park, you and the children can partake in cool activities with the giant darlings, like bathing the elephants, for example. The park also has a museum, information centre and art gallery, where the whole family can learn more about the star species, in addition to the park’s elephant education show.
Don’t go home just yet, because we’re getting to the lodge part of Mason Elephant Park & Lodge. Blending understated elegance with the verdant surroundings, the boutique hotel offers 27 rooms, each enhanced with a distinguished elephant touch that caters to all tastes. Perhaps the most popular feature is that each room has special access so that you can easily board your elephant, which is ready to take you on a jungle journey.
Next in line is Mason’s white-water rafting programme, which will take you on an exhilarating and picturesque expedition along the Ayung River in Ubud. The programme boasts Bali’s longest white-water rafting trip, complete with modern safety equipment, gourmet buffet lunch, changing rooms, towels and hot showers, electronic security lockers, air-conditioned hotel transfers, emergency Air Medivac just in case, and free Wi-Fi.
If your family has the need for speed, check out Mason Adventures’ jungle buggies offer. Roam the nearby jungle on Bali’s first and only purpose-built ATV track. The jungle tour includes full safety equipment, three laps on the track each of up to 5km, a delicious lunch and more. The package also includes access to the Mason Gourmet Chocolate factory showroom, which brings us to the next delight.
Mason Gourmet Chocolate hosts the Bali Chocolate Tour & Tasting, welcoming everyone with a penchant for chocolate and sweet treats. The factory uses only the best hand-picked cocoa beans, sourced from throughout Indonesia. The youngsters will be delighted in taking a peek at the behind-the-scenes dynamics in the factory. Afterwards, you can also participate in the gourmet chocolate tasting.
Make some time to take up the Mason Sky Tours offer, as it takes you on a luxurious journey aboard a modern and sleek Eurocopter B2 helicopter, with full air-conditioning and luxury leather seating for up to five passengers. The air journey will show you scenic corners of Bali, volcanos, and more exotic destinations around the island.
In addition to the aforementioned activities and experiences, Mason Adventures Bali offers challenging programmes like mountain cycling and tropical trekking, and indulgent experiences, like spa and wellness rituals.
