One of the greatest advantages of staying in a villa is the personal service provided by a dedicated team of professional staff. The team at Villa Jamalu has been thoughtfully recruited according to their skills and personality; many of them are part of the local village community and have been working at Villa Jamalu since the day it opened.
The aim of the staff is to look after every villa guest – from toddler to grandparent – in true Balinese style. The villa manager and chef, in particular, will be only too delighted to discuss your desires or concerns and do what they can to guarantee a relaxed and enjoyable holiday.
Villa Jamalu also provides: housekeepers, a gardener/pool attendant, 24hr security staff.
Villa manager, Milani, has worked at Villa Jamalu since 2006 and is responsible for overall operations including staffing, special requests and guest satisfaction. Milani speaks excellent English.
Chef Komang has been preparing delicious Asian and Western cuisine at Villa Jamalu since 2008. She is at the villa daily to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner and is very happy to accommodate special requests such as catering to dietary needs or devising dinner party menus.
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-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 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.
