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, chock-full of toys, 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-inch flat-screen television and PlayStation 3.
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 balé pavilion that hovers above the sparkling 15-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 15-metre saltwater 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.
The two junior suites, located on the ground floor, boast large glass doors which open directly to the pool deck. These light and spacious air-conditioned rooms are beautifully appointed, featuring king-size beds, iPod docking stations and marble ensuite bathrooms with rain showers. Four trundle beds provide additional sleeping space for kids (extra charge applies).
Villa Jamalu features two master suites: the first, located on the top floor, enjoys panoramic ocean views while the second, positioned on the ground floor, looks out onto the sparkling saltwater swimming pool. Both of these stylish air-conditioned suites feature luxuriously canopied king-size beds, iPod docking stations, televisions and DVD players. Both opulent marble ensuites feature rain showers, while the lower suite has the addition of a tub and the upper suite a jacuzzi tab.
