Villa Jamalu - Ocean View

The Locale

Located on the slopes of the secure Temple Hill estate, Villa Jamalu is a few minutes’ walk (the staff will happily show you the shortcut) from the tranquil waters and white sands of Jimbaran Bay, where the shallow sea is ideal for swimming and paddling, and the perfect beach for families with small children. Once a quaint fishing village, Jimbaran is now home to some of Bali’s finest five star resorts such as the Four Seasons, Ayana and Karma. It still retains much of its rustic charm, however, and its bustling fish market supplies the whole island. Jimbaran Bay is well known for its legendary beachside warungs, which serve the freshest local seafood. The nearby Menega Café comes highly recommended by Villa Jamalu’s staff.

Padang Padang, Bingin and Dreamland, some of the island’s most famous surf breaks, are twenty-minutes’ drive to the south and the New Kuta Golf Course is just fifteen minutes away by car.

Things to Do

Your villa manager, Milani, and her team will have a wealth of information about places of interest and can help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the area. Many live nearby and can give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of local Bali life.

In the meantime, here’s a taste of some of the activities on offer within reach of Villa Jamalu.

A visit to the eleventh century Uluwatu temple is an absolute must at sunset and make sure you take in a captivating performance of the traditional Kecak dance, which is held here every afternoon.

Learn to surf at the nearby Padang Padang surf school. Their instructors are great with kids and beginners.

Enjoy a sunset dinner at one of the many seafood warungs dotted along Jimbaran Bay and be serenaded by a band of strolling musicians.

Play a round at the spectacular New Kuta Golf Course, with its stunning views over the Indian Ocean.

Take the kids to Jengalla Ceramics and they can paint a plate whilst you do some homewares shopping.

Indulge yourself at the Bamboo Spa by L’Occitane in Jimbaran.

If you are a bold and brave bargain hunter, a spree within the heart of Bali’s bustling provincial capital is an exciting and rewarding experience. Visit the vibrant Denpasar markets, where everything and anything is available.

The most exclusive Bali trekking tour promises breath-taking vistas and heart-warming encounters while supporting sustainable social change in the once-forgotten villages of Muntigunung. Elite Havens is a proud partner of Muntigunung Community Social Enterprise.

Get up to some monkey business at Bali Treetop Adventure Park (next to Lake Bratan). Five adventure circuits, with heights ranging from two to 20 metres, challenge all ages and skill levels on suspended bridges, spider nets, tarzan jumps and flying foxes.

Fashionistas, trendies, shop-a-holics and foodies should hot-foot it down to Seminyak, Bali’s most cosmopolitan enclave. Here, you can indulge for hours in the glut of stylish, chic boutiques and international restaurants and bars including, Potato Head Beach club, La Lucciola and Bali’s infamously trendy Ku Dé Ta. For furniture, antiques and homeware stores go for a wander around the streets of nearby Kerobokan.

Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.

    Our first time in Bali, we impressed from Balinese people. Villa Jamalu is a great place to spend for vacation in Bali with very polite stuff. The views are amazing and we had also excellent food each time we dine in villa. The kids loved the pool and the billiard room. Hope we can come back.

    Thank you so much for your kindness, your warmth, the extra special touch of assistance and service you provided to us. You all made this feel like a very special home away from home. Both my belly and my heart are full. We will enjoy the recipe from you when we get home and back to cooking.

    We arrived at this fabulous villa and immediately fell in love with it. The staff Milani, Komang, Anton and Henny were fabulous. And the food, cleanness and general upkeep of the villa rooms was EXCELLENT!!! Also we thank Ketut who drove us every where at all hours. His friendliness, information & general humour was enjoyed by a very rowdy crowd, which he warmly enveloped. The gym and great sound system was also the big plus for us and used frequently. All and all, Villa Jamalu was Excellent. Thank you to all for making our stay a memorable occasion.

    It was great experience, the villa is very beautiful since it has most likely everything - swimming pool, kids play area, billiard, gym, balcony, the ocean view, barbecue place and the best is where the villa is located on cliff. May be there are other villas same, but the real excellence is the great staff, nice reception, excellent cook, good treatment and hospitality.
