This place has it all, making it extremely good value for money. We stayed at a pool villa (in a two-level villa with our own private pool of which the photos say it better than I ever could) under the honeymoon package, which included spa treatments, a lunch, and a dinner catered to us at our villa among other perks. At all times the staff was impeccable; the food of a high quality; the privacy, unmatched. Plus because of our set up in a pavilion we had the option of self-catering - although apart from making ourselves a second pot of coffee we never availed: their food was just so much better and so reasonably priced!

I can't say enough good things about this place. If you are looking for nightlife, something hip and trendy or a spot right on the beach, you may be disappointed. We weren't and Bali Pavilions certainly exceded our expectations.

This is part of the Relais and Chateaux syndicate and deserves to be. Highly recommended.

Fantastic as soon as you arrive you know you have made a good choice, Located in central Sanur down a bamboo pathway . Everything about this place is just spot on the staff are so attentive and pleasant a credit to the manageress. We ate in a couple of times and the food was of good quality and reasonably priced and really nice to sit in your own villa and eat then sit outside at the side of your swimming pool with an after dinner drink. Yes it is worth the extra cost for a pool villa.We also had dinner in the restaurant one night with the manageress and had a very nice evening when she told us all about her travels .My wife also used the spa treatment a number of times although a little more expensive than outside it was well worth the cost for the convenience and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.Mozzies they supplied 2 plug ins we brought one ourselves plus they used to light a coil outside every evenning,plus they spray all the public areas every morning we also had sun cream ,after sun with insect repellent in and insect repellent as well,we did get the occasional bite but we were not bitten alive as some people have said,you just have to be sensible and remember you are in the tropics.The villas themselves are not ultra modern but are tipical balinese style which is how they should be,with mature gardens and very private ( no need for white bits ) when sunbathing.In my opinion everyone should experience the Bali Pavillions.So if you are going to Bali look no further than here it is central for any trips that you wish to make and you can travel to Kuta and Ubud by local taxi use the bluebird taxis.We stayed in villa 6 so if you go there look after our lizard that comes every night,and also our Geeko.Reataurants to try Picadlily,Mades,Wicked Parrot and Bonsai , to be perfectly honest all the restaurants appear to be OK.Enjoy your holiday

We had reservated a 2 Bedroom Pool villa and were surprised by the space and luxury. Going through our private entrance we had two connected 2persons rooms in a villa-style. Next to this was a lounge -and dinning area with full equiped kitchen, LCD tv, coffeemachine, refrigerator, cool water drinking tank, etc. And than we had our private pool with beds. This was all located on our own premisses. After arrival 2 ladies came in and gave a complimentay food massage. In the morning our own butler came in to prepare our breakfast (filled on a form by us) in our own kitchen. We never expected this luxury. Bali Pavilions is nicely located in the center of Sanur. Outside you are immidiately on the center shopping road and walking to to beach is only 5 minutes walk. The atmosphere in Sanur is much better than in Legian, Candidasa or Ubud. Here it seems not to be so crowded and you also have a nice boulevard at the beach with many nice restaurants and bars with live music. During our journey we stayed at 6 different places, but I would pick Sanur if I would stay for a longer time at one place. Bali pavilions is superb. Our last night the electricity in half of Sanur was out and they didn't even charge me that night altough the electricity was only out from 18.00 - 22.00. They are really customer-focussed. Great value for money!

My new husband and I spent 9days here for our honeymoon. It was wonderful. Rose petals on our bed and in the bath on our arrival with incense burning and candles glowing. We stayed in one of the smaller villas and did not have our own pool but the communal pool was lovely and always quiet with waiter service if required. Breakfast bought every morning and laid out on the table in the villa, a big selection of dishes to order, all wonderfully cooked. The restuarant on site is very tranquil and there are individual gazebos you can reserve. Although more expensive than the restaurants out in Sanur, the food is wonderful and we still only paid £40 for a 4course banquet and a bottle of wine so definately well worth a visit.
The staff were always polite and helpful. If we ever needed anything it was done almost before we'd had time to finish asking!
Only 5minutes walk to the beach or a free lift in an air-conditioned car to the spot where there are sun loungers waiting.
Only 100m from the main road running through Sanur and yet you could have been 100miles away the atmosphere was so peaceful and relaxing.
We spent an afternoon in the Spa, which was great and such a bargain.
It was the small things that made it so special for us, the afternoon visit by the staff to light incense and candles and turn the corners of the duvet back before it got dark, the little gift from the Manageress before we left and the outdoor beds to lie and relax on with a cold Bintang beer.
Sanur itself is less busy than some of the other resorts with a whole host of restaurants and shops. It comes alive at night and the locals are always smiling.

We chose Bali Pavilions as the first part of our stay in Bali, having just been to Hong Kong as part of our honeymoon. We booked the Pavilions following positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We stayed here for 7 nights before moving on to Uma Ubud,

First thing we must tell you about; which I didn't come across during my research was that customs at Denpansar aiport will keep you waiting for about 2 hours (unless this only happened on the day we arrived). We were informed beforehand by our travel agent that we would need to purchase a Visa but this could be done at the airport...which was a horrible tangle of queues of people with no directions and few staff to advise. Once the Visas were obtained (US$25 each), we then had to queue again for the customs, which genuinely took 2 hours. Not good in a stuffy airport with no airconditioning.

Once we located our baggage, two men in uniform took our cases for us through to the exit, and then demanded money for taking this for us. Naively, we thought they were airport staff who were taking our cases to be checked, not porters. We didn't have any baliense money and didn't want to give much so they had no choice but to settle with some HK$.

Upon arrival at the Pavilions, it was dark even though it was only 6pm, so we couldn't really see what was in store for us, but from what we could see, we were impressed.

We had Villa 14, which was a pool villa. When we first arrived, the spa staff came and gave us a complimentary foot massage which was much needed. The staff are so friendly, and nothing is too much trouble for them. The only negative point we would have to make about the staff, is that there is a constant stream of staff coming and going each day, even though they do do a great job with a smile.

Our villa didn't get many hours of sunshine due to where it was situated, we must have only got about 4 hours of sun before our villa was in the shade, so we would then have to go to the main pool.

The Villa itself was self contained, and to me, was everything I needed in one place...although my husband thinks that the villa was a little dated, I disagree. It was spacious, and modern, with a good kitchen area. An outside bath was nice and romantic which we used just once. The fridge (mini bar) is well stocked and is so cheap, we used this a lot.

The main thing that spoilt it for us was the mosquitos, which obviously isn't the Pavilions fault, however there are big gaps in the doors which openly invites the nasty bugs in. The staff come by around 4pm to light a coil outside the villa, put on the mosquito plugs etc, and to turn the bed down ready for bedtime (and they pour glasses of water for you and put it on the side tables) but it's not enough to keep the bugs out. We were heavily eaten alive despite using repellent and sleeping with the mosquito net on. We had a frog which returned nightly, and was permanently attached to our door, plus a lizard and a giant spider in our bedroom which frightened the life out of me.

There are no blinds or curtains on the main doors, but as the villa is completely private, it wasn't a problem. There are no doors to the shower or toilet either so you must be completely comfortable with whoever you are staying with. Toiletries are provided - shower gel, bath bubbles, shampoo and conditioner and even aftersun. Fresh flowers are everywhere, and a good supply of towels which are replaced daily.

We brought our own laptop with us, and there is wifi, however it was quite tempramental, whether this was because of our laptop or not we weren't quite sure, but it was a good thing to have for free. There is a computer and a laptop available in the main reception if you don't bring your laptop.

We did have a blackout one night, where we were completely without electricity for about 5 hours. There is a torch provided in the event of a blackout but we did have to ask for candles to be brought to our villa, nobody came by on their own accord to check if we needed anything. It was quite romantic though, and we ordered room service, which we did on quite a few nights as it was so cheap.

In the villa, there is a TV and DVD player, but we couldn't play our DVDs on this player because of the regions. We didn't end up watching much TV as there wasn't many english channels we could watch. You can borrow books, DVDs and CDs from the main reception.

We had breakfast delivered each morning to our villa, which was always delicious. We never managed to go to the main restaurant to eat as it was so nice to be waited on in the room.

The main pool is lovely too; beach towels are always provided, be careful to make sure that the sun lounger is always covered with the towel as we got caught out a few times, the heat is very intense on the material of the lounger! The staff bring you a special beaker of water to drink.

We went out to eat in Sanur which is within walking distance of the Pavilions, everywhere we ate was lovely and affordable. You do end up getting annoyed with the locals asking you if you need a taxi or want to book an excursion. Piccadilly restaurant was a favourite of ours. The local money, Rupiah was confusing to me, so my husband took care of that; it's like Monopoly money! We didn't go far in Sanur, other than a sunset cruise on the Bali Hai which was only OK (it was thrown into our package). There are many things to do though if you are the type to want to be doing things.

The beach was lovely, peaceful white sandy beach with warm sea water. We found it by going through a hotel resort. Turn left out of the Pavilions and walk along the main road, you will see a sign saying Taverna, and if you go through there, it leads you to the beach.

On our last day, I received a lovely gift from the owner which was such a sweet gesture. We absolutely loved it here, and would recommend it to anyone. We needed a place to relax and unwind, and this was the perfect place to do this. We didn't realise untl the second day in about tipping the staff. It's a tricky situation as the staff are always coming and going, so we would give a 50,000RP (£3.50) to them.
