From the moment we arrived until we left Milani and her team couldn't have done more for us. From the great breakfasts each day to the special nights when they cooked up seafood culinary delights and don't forget the Indonesian dinners. The accommodation was something we could easily get use to - on our quiet days lying by the pool enjoying a good book or playing the odd game of pool; some of us even used the gym. We are also enjoyed the concierge services of Rebecca; who recommended and book our Sunrise hike to Mount Batur, and got us a good deal on champagne. The only negatives were the a/con in one of bedrooms stopped working twice, and was quickly fixed by Anton and the car was only a 7 seater but Villa slept 8. We also had 8 staying.
Villa Jamalu sits high on the hill over looking Jimbaran Bay. Fantastic views of the beach. Very private and spacious villa. The staff are amazing - so helpful from laundry to money changing and beautiful meals. The pool is huge - 17m long and very clean. Great facilities around the pool as in chairs, lounges cabanas. The bedrooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated. Upstairs is a great sitting area where you can also dine. Great place to have all your meals. Well equipped gym. Excellent meals prepared by the lovely Milani and her staff. Highly recommend staying at Villa Jamalu.
Beuatiful villa overlooking Jimbaran with views to Legian/Seminyak in the background. Very quiet and safe and absolutely wonderful staff led by Milani. The meals prepared for us and any other request (i.e. motor bike, laundry, money exchange) were excellent. Cannot speak highly enough of the willingness of the staff to help. Only issue is the villa has an 8 seater van which includes the driver, so if you have 8 people staying there, you need a second car.
First of all apologies for the late review. Stayed at this amazing villa for 4 days from late April through to early May as a family with two young children.
The villa is huge and clean...it has a beautiful view overlooking the Jimbaran Bay as well as the airport. It is also a good place to watch the sunset from the deck.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and well maintained. The villa has its own gym and even a yoga room and a pool table. It is a really good holiday home where everyone gets together.
Everyone in the family likes Villa Jamalu and cannot stop praising it as we did have a wonderful stay.
Please keep in mind that Villa Jamalu comes with a chef and she is an excellent chef, she is Ibu Komang. You should try her cooking and you won't be disappointed. We were spoiled by all the yummies prepared by Ibu Komang, from breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and barbecue plus dinner. She can cater all your needs.
Ibu Milani, Bapak Anton and Ibu Henny are also there to help you anytime. The fantastic four will make your stay at the villa a fantastic one.
Located in a cushy complex not far from the base of the hill, this is a big villa with 3 levels and a swimming pool. Great upstairs areas for entertaining - indoor living room, dining room, modern kitchen, outdoor lounges and covered dining patio and deck with sunset and sea views - plus a gym and massage room downstairs below the bedrooms. Big thanks to the staff who took care of us for my friend's 30th birthday bash.
Booked Villa Jamalu in advance for my 50th with family. All aspects of reservation were taken care of efficiently by Elite Havens. Picked up on arrival at DPS airport.
Villa is very spacious and well designed. Views across the bay to Jimbaran. Villa is within a gated community with seciurity guard.
4 main bedrooms all well furnished and appointed. Master suite upstairs. Plenty of space within villas and private little places to grab some quiet time if you like. Main lounge and kitchen furnished well and comfy. Large pool with sun loungers. Lovely upstairs outside dining area and lounge area overlooking the bay.
The team that look after you whilst at Jamalu are exemplary. So very friendly, attentive, hard working and delightful. A credit to the owners. Food was absolutely delicious. Most nights we left it to Chef to cook us her suggestions and all were great. Top food. On my birthday, lounge was decorated and a lovely cake provided.
Used villa car and driver who was charming and lovely aircon people carrier.
We had an absolutely fantastic stay and thank the team for it and highly recommend:
That said and note to owners and Elite Havens:
Some attention needs to be paid to villa as showing some signs of wear and tear:
Soft furnishings in places could be smarter , read replaced. Selling luxury it's important to keep on top on this.
Pool wasn't cleaning itself properly so after a few days had milky appearance. Reported this but never really got any better.
Aircon in one of the bedrooms and main lounge wasn't working properly.
Some of electronics a bit wonky, IE TV downstairs lounge didn't work, music round pool cut out at times, no real instructions how to use etc. Wifi extremely slow.
Above issues to be considered by owners and for future investment to keep property in the high end category.
Thank you once again, a very enjoyable stay.

Do eat at Villa Jamalu as much as possible Komang is a beautiful cook who shares her love of good food and Indonesian flavours with generosity. Do use Katut and Anton the kind drivers. Katut has an amazing general knowledge and knowledge of Bali. Enjoy cute sisters Milani and Henny looking after you and keeping the Villa spotless.Milani knows all about what to do in Bali. Do swim as much as possible in the warm clean beautiful pool ( thank you Anton) and the sea at Jimbaren Only a 15 min tops walk away.
