Our favourite rooms
Part of the appeal of the Pavilions are the amazing views, so opt for an Ocean View Pool Villa. Like all the suites, it has its own walled entrance, which opens up to separate bed, living and bathing areas, and it is a very private 310 sq m space. There is also a private infinity pool and sundeck.
Individual plunge pools are just about long enough for a few strokes, and there's a communal pool (though this was due to close for renovations in late 2015).
A pair of binoculars for spotting wildlife or scoping the panoramic views from the bar.
Although it's tucked high in the hills, the Pavilions runs a free shuttle bus to Layan Beach in Sirinat National Park throughout the day (and can provide a picnic hamper for lunch). There are also restaurants by the beach.
Kids under 16 aren't allowed, ensuring a calm, child-free zone.
