The Pavilions is a great place to start or end your holiday. It's located in Sanur which is as close to the airport as Kuta, but with a much more laid back feel. The hotel itself is a hidden gem tucked away, 50m or so from the beach; a lovely little boutique resort that is perfect for a relaxing few nights.
Set in delightful private gardens, the unobtrusive and unpretentious 25 Villas, main pool and restaurant are discreet but luxurious. The Balinese aesthetic perfectly complements the intimate, secret garden feel, and the spaciousness of your private spaces make relaxing here easy.
The two-bedroom pool villas are fantastic for families, although couples will probably find that the non-pool villas are sufficient. The restaurant has a simple but high-quality menu, and the spa is as good as you would expect in a Balinese hotel of this standard.
While Sanur is relatively busy down by the sea during the day, the quality of the beach (which has safe swimming) and the proximity of the airport makes The Pavilions an excellent choice for a first or last stop in Bali.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
