stayed at pavilions in may for 2 weeks.We had a one bedroom pool villa.It was so private and quiet.Enjoyed the pool bigger than expected. We had no6 which had a bridge over the pool to the villa. We also had a visit from a yellow lizard most mornings.We found it hard to leave the pool villa and garden.Staff were lovely.They had a main pool but we didnt feel any need to use it because of our own pool.The resturant was lovely and had your own pavilion to eat your meal bit more pricey but worth it. The villa was real nice the lounge very spacious with a nice bedroom and a spacious bathroom.Air Conditioning worked really well and we didnt find any of the rooms hot. Bit disappointed we couldnt book a car with fully com insurance with the hotel .We had a good holiday at the pavilions

We spent our last 5 nights in Bali at Bali Pavilions, Sanur. The South is more touristy than the other areas we visited but we did want to see it so chose Sanur as it is a smaller resort.

Bali Pavilions is off the main shopping street down a long bamboo drive. We stayed in a very spacious villa in a walled garden with its own swimming pool and butler service - breakfast is served in all the rooms.

This is a lovely peaceful hotel away from the hustle and bustle of the resort. The villas are very clean with lovely helpful staff. We ate in the restaurant on 4 nights and the food we chose was excellent - delicious and well presented. The service is fairly slow and some people may not like this, but it was fine for us. We ate out on one occasion at the Cinnamon Restaurant - the food was okay but we preferred the hotel restaurant for the presentation and peaceful dining. We were told that there are alot of good restaurants but of course everyone has their own views on whether it is good or bad.

The hotel runs a shuttle bus to the beach but it is only a short walk away so it is quite nice to walk there. It is a long golden sand beach but beware of the vendors - they are onto you immediately to buy something. We walked through to the beach alongside La Taverna Hotel (through the Bonsai Cafe) and the left hand side of the beach is much quieter and is frequented more by locals. The right hand side is full of tourists and there are lots of stalls and markets. After a couple of days we completely avoid this.

We loved Bali Pavilions and would recommend it to anyone, but I don't think Sanur is for us but we are pleased we have been there just to experience the different parts of Bali.

We relied on the quality promise of the RELAIS AND CHATEAUX group that this hotel would be up to their usual high standards, as we've come to enjoy our stays in their collection of hotels and restaurants. Let me assure you that the Pavilions do not not belong as a unit of R & C from both a location and quality standpoint. Our promise of seclusion and luxury came to a sudden end as we arrived that evening at the Pavilions via their bamboo entry lane. It was more of an alleyway that ended at the non-descript hotel office. Everyone was very nice (2 people), however, and they promptly showed us our villa. The villa was as advertised in the web site , with the singular exception that you can't really detect the heat via the web site. The temp was about 30c (90f) outside and only marginally cooler in the villa (obviously they hadn't pre-cooled the villa we thought). That assumption we gave up on later as it did cool down to 26c (82f) in the b/r, but never allowed a restful sleep. The location isn't especially convienent unless you enjoy security in the middle of the slums, but now we know!

Food is mediocre at best ; the spa was also too warm to be enjoyable even though the attendents were quite capable.
Perhaps we're just spoiled Americans looking for luxury as we were paying for it, but we'll not leave the states tagain to relax unless we can be assured of outstanding treatment; from accommodations, to meals to pleasant temperatures.

Service was great, most staff speak English well and are quite happy to chat with you if you feel like having a conversation. They ring your doorbell a few times a day, once for breakfast, once for the pool man, again to clean up breakfast, once to make up the room, then once more in the afternoon to turn down the bed, curtains, etc. They are very quick about it and don't get in your way. They are also very well presented.

When the butler picked us up from the airpost he gave us some chilled water bottles and cold face-towels after we entered the car (which shocked us in a good way - we could see we were about to go somewhere special and got all excited). He drove us right up to our villa and showed us the rooms. Then we were presented with a welcome drink (tropical fruit juice) which tasted superb. Once he left we were given complimentary foot massages (I declined mine but my wife said it was really good).

The reception staff are really helpful too, we almost got scammed on the street (I won a fake $1000 with a free scratchie), and told us it was just a timeshare company that would harass us until we bought something from them if we went to reclaim the prize.

Our 1-bedroom pool villa (#20) was the best luxury I have experienced (although I am not used to being pampered). Perfect for our honeymoon. The pictures on the website don't lie. The top floor has the bedroom and an ensuite. The bottom floor has the lounge with good sized LCD TV and DVD player, kitchen, meals, luggage store/wardrobes, and the bigger bathroom with another toilet, corner bathtub and 2 showers (one is semi-outdoor but with hot water). Air conditioning is excellent. Outside is our private pool which is quite a big one, plus the sunbathing chairs and umbrella. It is all covered up by vegetation so the people next door cannot see. Every morning I was woken by a rooster; I think behind our villa wall is the local neighbourhood.

Room service food is quite good, but you can get cheaper food on the street where there are many restaurants, which all have delicious food.

The outdoor restaurant looked stunning at night, like it should be in a postcard. We did not eat there but walked past on a few nights.

Overall our 4 night stay was the best we had in Bali before moving on to Ubud. The best thing was the villa itself; toward the end of our 4 nights we stayed in the villa for longer times without wanting to go out!

When checking out the owner greeted us and gave my wife a little present which was a nice touch.

Can't put my finger on anything bad, except for the rooster.

If you can afford it, I would recommend staying at least 2 nights here to enjoy the experience.

My grandson and I stayed at the Pavilions for 5 nights, first in a 1 bedroom pool villa and were then upgraded to a 2 bedroom villa. Was absolutely wonderful, masses of area particularly in the outdoor loungeroom and our bedrooms and individual bathrooms were huge with no expense spared in presentation.
The daily staff were extremely attentive starting with the butler preparing your breakfast in your villa dining area, bringing you the daily newspaper, the pool attendant keeping the pool free from leaves and later on in day room attendants turning on lights, lighting mosi coils and turning down your bed. What a luxurious stay.
Restaurant just beautiful partjicularly at night, maybe a tad expensive but just a short stroll down bamboo driveway and you are out in the street.
Main pool and bar area lovely with pool staff bringing you never ending chilled flasks of water, also had a beautiful covered area with large day beds and supply of magazines and papers to read.
We also had a extra late checkout with the hotel allowing us to use room up to 9pm and then leave for airport and midnight flight back to Australia.
Just a beautiful serene and highly professionally run small establishment.
