We've stayed at the Pavilions twice now in a 2 bedroom family villa. It is just lovely and now feels like a home away from home. The manager welcomed us back the second time with a wonderful smile and a big hug. It is that type of place - small, intimate and friendly.
The amazing thing about this resort is that it is right in the middle of Sanur, yet it feels like you could be in the middle of nowhere. We heard no outside noise apart from roosters crowing and birds chirping. Breakfast was brought to the villa every morning at the specified time and set up beautifully at our own dining table. There is a fridge in the kitchenette so it is easy to stock up at the local supermarket and lounge the day away in complete privacy. We also loved coming back from a day out and wandering down the bamboo lined driveway. You could feel the serenity return within moments.
The only downside that I can see is the lack of beach access for those that prefer a beach holiday. Sure, the resort has a shuttle and are happy to take you but the way Sanur has been built up means that beach access is limited from the main road. While the beach is nothing like the surf beaches on the other side of the island, it is nice to wander along the boardwalk, watch the watersports, have a coffee/dinner in one of the restaurants, watch the local dogs interact, do a spot of shopping or just get from one end of Sanur to the other without contending with traffic on the main road. The first time we visited it wasn't difficult to wander through some of the beachside resorts down to the beach for a morning walk or find a restaurant for dinner. Twelve months later and they seem to have tightened up on this and we had to walk quite a distance to reach a beach access road. Completely understandable due to security concerns but unfortunately for those staying in non-beachside resorts it limits your experience of Sanur. It is a shame since Sanur really has become a forgotten spot with most holidaymakers heading to Seminyak and Kuta.
Having said that, we love this resort and the less frenetic pace of Sanur and would definitely visit again.
