We spent 4 nights in one of the honeymoon villas at the Bali Pavilions, and we more or less fell in love with the place the second we arrived. The staff was extremely friendly, in a very genuine way. Not once during our stay did any of the staff in any way hint that they expected tips (which we encountered at some of other stays at Bali). It truly felt that the staff was genuinely happy to help us out with anything we asked. We didn't get the feeling of "I am smiling because I've been told by the manager to do so" that is common in many other places.
The honeymoon villa (can't remember the number) was amazing. After reading about it here on TripAdvisor and booking it, I was a bit worried that I had set my expectations a bit too high and would be disappointed. But I wasn't disappointed at all! It was even better! The bathroom was so beautiful, and the bedroom with its high ceiling was stunning. Together with the garden and private pool there was nothing missing for creating a perfect stay. At least not for us.
Breakfast was good (their nasi goreng and mie goreng were both really nice), and the candle lit dinner (included in the honeymoon package) was fantastic. They filled up the pool with rose petals and added floating candles. We were served several nice dishes by an extremely discreet waiter.
The Pavilions isn't located directly at the beaches, but it's only a short walk to get there. But if you want to spend your daytime at the beach, the Pavilions is probably not the right place to stay anyway. There are cheaper hotels closer to the beach. But honestly, the Sanur beaches aren't that great anyway. And with a private pool and the privacy of your own villa, there's not much reasons to go anywhere else.
The food at the restaurant at the Pavilions is (as with all hotel restaurants) overpriced. The food was good, no questions about it, but you can get just as good food if you just walk a couple of minutes away from the hotel premises.
If you normally stay only at luxury hotels etc, this might not be that special to you. But if you, like us, normally stay at more reasonably priced hotels this will most likely blow you away.
All in all, the Pavilion was without a doubt the best place we've stayed at. We'll without a doubt remember our stay for the rest of our lives, and are so happy that we chose this place. If we ever come to Bali again, I'm sure we'll spend at least a couple of nights here.
