Perched high atop a hillside on Bali's south coast, with sweeping views over the tranquil waters of Jimbaran Bay, sits the fabulous, four-bedroom, family friendly Villa Jamalu.
Every aspect of this stunning villa, from its clean lines to its stylish interiors, promises guests the ultimate in luxury and entertainment. Three-storeys of outstanding accommodation provide endless opportunities for fun and relaxation: workout in the well-equipped gym; shoot pool or battle it out on the PlayStation; spoil yourself in the spa room; meditate in the yoga space or refresh in the 12-metre pool. While you rest and rejuvenate, a team of friendly and capable staff, including a private chef and villa manager, are on hand to make sure you want for nothing.
Just a stone's throw from some of Bali’s finest beaches, a stay at Villa Jamalu will exceed all your holiday dreams.
Set within the secure and exclusive Temple Hill estate, overlooking Jimbaran Bay, Villa Jamalu is equipped with everything required for a truly memorable family holiday. Even its name – a combination of the names of the owners' three-children - reflects the consideration that went into creating this fabulously well-appointed family retreat.
Children will adore the playroom, while adult and teenage guests will love the air-conditioned games room and entertainment den with its cornucopia of delights, including a pool table, 50" TV and PlayStation 3 console.
A workout in the well-equipped gym or some zen time in the dedicated yoga space could be just what the doctor ordered, or perhaps a tension-relieving Balinese massage in the private spa treatment room?
A state-of-the-art Bose sound system plays music throughout the villa, providing the perfect holiday playlist. Listen to some chill-out tunes whilst luxuriating on loungers shaded by capacious umbrellas or relax in the bale pavilion that hovers above the sparkling 12-metre swimming pool. Parents with youngsters can rest easy as the villa is equipped with a pool fence that can be erected to ensure the safety of little ones. And should a break from the tropical heat be desired, guests can slip indoors and savour the air-conditioned comfort of one of the many spacious living areas.
Alfresco dining on the top terrace at Villa Jamalu is an absolute treat: the villa’s private gourmet chef will prepare sumptuous meals which can be enjoyed at the twelve-seater dining table, or provide canapés to graze upon whilst sipping cocktails and lounging on the all-weather sofas as the sun sets magically over the ocean with Bali's sacred Mount Batu Karu providing a mystical backdrop.
Villa Jamalu's three spacious storeys offer guests a profusion of settings to suit every mood: a calm corner in which to relax and unwind, a place to play, exercise, be entertained, or somewhere special to gather socially.
The top floor of Villa Jamalu boasts truly panoramic views over the Indian Ocean. This area acts as the main living area and includes a spacious open-plan kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining and lounge areas, and one of the master bedroom suites.
The focal point of the ground floor is the stunning 12-metre swimming pool and sunset bale, which is bordered by three bedrooms and a light, airy lounge and television room. The well-equipped playroom/study is also on this floor.
The basement houses an air-conditioned games and entertainment lounge, spa treatment room, yoga space and fabulously equipped gym.
Situated up on the top floor of the villa, Jamalu's modern kitchen flaunts luscious shades of chocolate brown and is well-equipped to meet the needs of the gourmet chef: the fantastic array of crockery and cooking utensils, a double fridge, a wine fridge and Nespresso machine, all ensure that every meal at Villa Jamalu is a memorable one. Adjacent to the kitchen, the twelve seater dining table is ideally located to either watch the Chef in action or gaze out at the ocean vista.
Villa Jamalu's three lounge and entertainment areas are all tastefully decorated and supremely comfortable, featuring state-of-the-art BOSE sound systems. The top floor lounge is light, spacious and airy. It is furnished with an L-shaped sofa and matching armchair and equipped with a 50" TV and a DVD player. Making the most of the magnificent view, glass sliding doors run the length of this room and can be closed for air-conditioned comfort or opened to let the fresh sea breezes to flow through. The ground floor living area, which overlooks the swimming pool, is furnished with a sofa, chaise lounge and antique four-poster daybed, and is decorated in earth tones, blues and greens to reflect the beachside environment. Battle it out on the PlayStation, curl up with a magazine, or watch a movie while keeping an eye on the kids in the water. The basement is home to a cozy and intimate entertainment lounge equipped with a full-size American pool table, drinks fridge, sound system and ample seating for enjoying the TV.
The rooftop terrace, with its sweeping ocean views, is delightful at any time of day: enjoy an early morning breakfast accompanied by birdsong or, later in the day, relax with a crisp white wine and let the gentle sea breezes envelop you as you marvel at one of Bali’s famously spectacular sunsets. At night, gather for a candle-lit meal at the alfresco dining table, which seats up to twelve diners in a convivial square.
The swimming pool forms the focal point of the villa's ground floor. Tiled in green stone, and deliciously deep, the pool is bordered by Palimanan stone and wooden decking and furnished with sun loungers and umbrellas. The most coveted poolside spot, the bale pavilion, offers comfort and shade. Parents need not worry about the little ones as a pool safety fence can be erected if required.
