One of the highlights at Villa Jamalu is the dining experience. There’s no better way to start the day than with Chef Komang’s justifiably famous home-made Jamalu muesli, served with honey, yoghurt and fresh fruit. The kids will love her French toast with maple syrup, and for the health conscious there’s the mixed berry smoothie. And whatever you do, don’t miss out on her wickedly delicious Jamalu chocolate cake or her legendary mixed fruit pavlova. Delicious seafood BBQ’s can be arranged, with the freshest local produce bought from the famous Jimbaran bay seafood market. Suggestion menus are available at the villa for breakfast, lunch and dinner, which include Indonesian, Balinese, Western and Japanese cuisine.
All additional groceries and beverages are charged at cost price. Guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance and the staff will do the shopping and keep receipts for reference.
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.
