During our two week trip to Bali, we stayed at the Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay, Amankila and the Four Seasons Sayan. While we enjoyed the Four Seasons Sayan, it does not compete with the Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay or the Amankila. I would've given the hotel 4 stars relative to these other two hotels, however it definitely deserves five stars in comparison to hotels such as the Alila and Royal Piti Maha (these are not nearly as nice).
Pros of Four Seasons Sayan: incredible service, comprehensive gym (the best of all the hotels that we stayed at in Bali), shuttle into town (although it stops around 5pm), recently renovated rooms and facilities, extensive list of activities such as yoga, walking, biking etc., the most delicious ginger tea in the gym/spa area.
Cons of Four Seasons Sayan: The design of the hotel is very ugly--we had a few architecture folks in our group so they were not so pleased with this. Also, the rooms in the main hotel building are very damp, so much so that one of the rooms in our two bedroom suite was unusable. We also had an ant infestation in our room which was rather unpleasant. Lastly, the food is ridiculously overpriced (unless breakfast is included do not eat any meals here! Especially since food is ridiculously cheap in Ubud town. Go to Sari Organik and Bridges--food is better and a fraction of the price).
While it seems that the cons greatly outweigh the pros here, I want to clarify that we really did enjoy the Four Seasons Sayan and found it to be great value (around $500/night including breakfast). After touring the other rooms on the last day of our trip, we realized that we would have been much happier in a riverside villa--definitely worth the splurge! We also visited the Amandari and if money is no object, then I would probably recommend that you stay there (it was over $1000/night). However, the Four Seasons is half the price and given the better value, we were happy that we stayed there rather than the Amandari.
