“So very nearly perfect”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

Stayed for our honeymoon after reading all the great reviews on trip advisor - and we weren't disappointed. Staff were great at all times and made us feel like the most important people in the world. Massage on arrival was well needed and expertly done, followed by a complimentary full body massage days later. Breakfast was good ( need to learn how to cook bacon ) and brought on time. Hotel is close to the Main Street so other restaurants are close by and well worth a few nights out. Overall, a great place but as it was very quiet when we were there I perhaps would of expected an upgrade or something extra special.

No words good enough to describe this oasis of rest in beautiful Sanur, Bali. The service is excellent, the management both professional and personable and it is very difficult to find any criticism about this 'well kept secret'. When ever traveling to or through Indonesia this is the location of choice for two very well travelled individuals. Worth every penny.

My husband and I have visited the resort on many occasions. Being a boutique hotel, its has a more intimate feel than larger hotels. After the mayhem at the airport, being hassled by would be porters , currency dealers ,the customs/visa process, it is a huge advantage is being met at the airport with an air conditioned vehicle ( sent by the hotel) and cold towels and water!
Once checked in by the delightful staff, the Pavilions is a very calm, quiet oasis from the busy streets of Sanur and stress of working life.. We love being able to order breakfast, and it being served at the villa,. Great for just rolling out of bed, and being able to pad around the villa bare footed, and have breakfast served on the veranda.
The quality of the food is excellent, and all the staff are extremely courteous and helpful, not intrusive at all. All credit must be given to Il Soon Kang, and her managerial skills>After sufferingsome really awful London weather, the Bali Pavilions is a small piece of Heaven !

We've just spent 12 nights staying at The Pavillions and couldn't recommend it highly enough. It is the single nicest place we have ever stayed in south east asia. The two bedroom pool villa we had was so perfect we spent far more time in it than we had anticipated, such was the beauty and tranquility of it. The hotel staff are excellent and highly attentive and the manageress was fantastic and friendly, happy to meet your every need. When we arrived we received a foot passage, and that night over dinner in the beautiful restaurant the manageress told us to turn up at the spa for a free full body massage the next day, which was fanatastic. The villa itself was perfect, full of all sorts of wildlife that I could have happily watched for hours. The food was fantastic, generally we stick to eating authentic local foods (of which those they served were delicious) but for our final night the wife decided to try the fish and chips, equal to any we've eaten in Britain! The complex is a way back of the main strip in Sanur so no sounds can be heard bar the exotic wildlife. They were even brilliant when for the final day an extremely severe case of tooth pain (from needed root canal work) flared up for my wife, rushing us at the last minute to a doctors pharmacy to get better pain killers than we could have normally got from the local chemist in Sanur. All in all we cannot praise this hotel highly enough. If we are ever to return to Bali we wouldn't hesitate to book here again. If you are after a beautiful and quiet spot with fantastic staff you can't beat it.

Room Tip: We stayed in villa 19, a two bedroom pool villa. Fantastic!

We spent ten days in this hotel during the Christmas holiday period and really enjoyed our stay.
There is nothing not to like about this place. Our room was simply great - a detached Balinese style villa with private pool. The food was excellent throughout the day. The Spa offered really great massages and treatments.

On the down side, we found the manager of the hotel a little bit scary towards the staff, though she was pleasant with the hotel guests.
The hotel is nicely located but I wouldn't recommend spending more then a few days in that side of the Island. Bali has amazing hotels everywhere and there are many other nicer spots worth visiting.

We stayed at the Pavilions for a week at the end of September/beginning October.

We arrived from Ubud a couple of hours before check in and would happily have left our bags with reception and gone into Sanur for lunch until 2pm but fortunately our room was ready and the staff took us straight in.

Last time we were in Bali we came and had dinner in the garden restaurant and promised ourselves we would stay here next time. So glad we did.
We chose a garden villa - not only because they are considerable cheaper than the pool villas but also we wanted a larger pool and were happy to use the main one - around which the garden villas are set.
Most of the time we had this pool to ourselves.
The bar is located by the pool to.
The only small niggle I had would have to be the condition of the main swimming pool. It has a lot of missing and/or broken tiles and could do with some attention.


The villa consisted of a beautiful large living area with small kitchenette, then a bedroom and large bathroom. Our villa has a small garden area at the entrance with a table for breakfast. The whole thing is enclosed by walls to ensure privacy. All of the amenities and facilities within the villa are first rate.

Breakfast is brought to your villa and of course you can have lunch and dinner there if you like. We lunched by the pool several times and it was always delicious. We had dinner once in the beautiful garden restaurant but there are so many great places to eat in Sanur we tended to eat out. The hotel is situated in a quiet area of the main strip of Sanur and there are also some really nice bars and restaurants on the beach.


The staff do a turndown service that involves aromatherapy oils so the villa smells lovely when you come home. The service is attentive and professional and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We are already looking forward to visiting again.

The Pavilions are a really precious hideaway located in the middle of Sanur's center.
As a reccomendation from our travel agency we didn't check the comments before going there - but it wasn't necessary anyway :)
From the very first second to the final farewell we found ourselves in paradise!
Our "Pool Villa" (highly recommended) was spacious, the bellboy explained everything - including the complimentary water-gallon, the DVD player, the Stereo Player, etc.
Upon arrival we received a foot-massage and the order form for our breakfast.
The breakfast will be served in the villa, so you can already start the day relaxed and basically whenever you want.
The pool and room are cleaned everyday, in the evening another check incl. anti-moscito meassures takes place.
The whole ressort is very private and if youo don't want to, you will basically never see any neighbour.
All the staff is so friendly and professional, helpful allover and always at hand.

Summing it up: The best hotel I have ever been to!!

Room Tip: choose a Pool Villa, it's worth it ;)
