The Pavilions, Bali
Located along a private bamboo-lined lane, this all-villa suite resort is ideal for that romantic trip away.
Set on the quieter, eastern side of the island in Sanur, this resort is dedicated to slowing the pace of life. Although nestled into the region’s lush tropical foliage, it is only a short stroll to the beach where you can swim or sunbathe.
Each of the 24 villas sits individually tucked into the gardens and offers a spacious and luxury base to relax. The décor is typical Balinese with dark woods and neutral colours. Choose from Pool Villas, Garden Villas or the larger Honeymoon Pool Villas and Two Bed Villas.
The friendly staff understand that guests come here to reconnect and make precious memories and therefore have the balance of attentive but discreet service just right. The dining scene ranges from romantic private dining in your villa with the attentive service of your personal butler, to a casual lunch or a cocktail after a cooling dip at Poolside Bar. There’s also the candlelit Jahe restaurant in the resort’s tropical garden, which offers a choice of western and Asian cuisine made from fresh local ingredients.
For added romance head to the spa to indulge in traditional Balinese rituals – it is possible to get a couple’s treatment too.
Take a trip to the island of Serangan, located just 7km off the coast near Sanur. The island is known for its sea turtle population, and there is a turtle egg hatchery dedicated to the conservation of these endangered creatures.
