“Perfect Ending to a Perfect Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I ended our honeymoon here and are so glad we did! We stayed at two other magnificent hotels and were pleasantly surprised by our final stay. The room was spacious and authentic. We loved our plunge pool and having breakfast at or villa was so special. The service was outstanding and the owner wonderful at getting us around to various temples and excursions. We loved ending our honeymoon at the Jamahal!

Our entire stay, from service to amenities to food, was fantastic. All the staff are extremely friendly and always there to help. The spa treatments are top class. Cannot recommend this place enough. Thank you for the perfect end to our Bali holiday.

My fiancee and I had an awesome surprised honeymoon as a present from my mother in law, thank you Neli. We arrived a bit too early and although they were fully booked they accommodated us at their beach club until our villa was ready and WOW! Rose petals in the water, a glass of chilled champagne for both of us and romantic music in the background. What a... :) Food and service was even better than I expected, I mean we just felt home away from home. Can't wait to earn enough to return this present to Neli, Terima Kasih and sampai jumpa lagi. See you again.

We have spent the last three nights of our trip in Indonesia in a superb villa of the Jamahal Resort (end June 2014). We were impressed by the fantastic service and dedication of the staff to make your stay unforgettable. The villa is very large & cosy, with marble bathroom and lovely terrasse. The spa is truly worth a try and the chef is amazing. We had lunch & dinner almost every day here as it was truly delicious! Breakfasts are really good too, you have to taste the swiss muesli. The beach is just a few minutes walk away (they also organise free shuttles if you don't feel like walking). If you want to relax by the beach or by the pool, reading a book, this is the perfect place.

Our villa was lovely and the gardens are gorgeous. Crossing the busy road outside was made easy by the staff. We went to the beach every evening for dinner at one of the seafood cafes on the beach. The platters of grilled seafood were amazing and very good value - highly recommend to seafood lovers. A very large platter for two with a lot of extra accompaniments was about $25 Australian.
The staff at Jamahal are friendly and helpful. They made a lovely chocolate cake for my husband's birthday.

This was a lovely stay. The staff were more than exceptional. The villa was lovely though we had to complain a couple of times because they were renovating next door and were high above the high wall that looked straight into our pool area. That wouldn't have been bareable if it wasn't for the fact that you only have an outdoor toilet/bath/shower combined area, with not even a curtain. At one point, we needed to shower in another villa. This was of no fault of the staff and the manager, was very upset with them and was very generous in giving us both free masages which were lovely.

The breakfasts were lovely. We often had it on a bale by the main pool, which was a lovely freeform pool. It wasn't designed as I thought, thinking that the villas were actually situated next to this pool. We actually found that we didn't use our own pool very much. Not really sure why, it just wasn't all that inviting for me. I can't really discribe it. It was just the way it was designed, it was sort of tucked away behind the villa.

Don't expect to find restaurants around you, as they aren't. If you are a bit of a walker, you can walk to the infamous Jimbaran Fish restaurants, though we never eat there, there is a fantastic little warung, on the beach with great pizzas and I don't normally eat pizzas in Australia.

It was just a little too out of the way for us. Nice but I'm not sure deserving of a number one resort.

“stay one year past july 2013 ….” therefore it seems not very helpful to post a reply to this review in june 2014. On the other hand we are asking TA to kindly assure “just in time” posting of the guests reviews which will be definitely more accurate and helpful, thank you …

From the outside you cannot imagine what to expect after you enter...It is a oasis! Very friendly staff all over, be it security, lobby, houskeeping or gardener. You immediately feel most welcome. We arrived at my birthday but I didn't tell upfront. However, our villa wasen't ready but instead of keeping us waiting in the lobby, they offered us a free massage in the Spa. What a start! After a beautiful relaxing massage, our villa was ready. But before handing over the key, the staff started to sing a happy birthday and surprised with a nice chocolate cake. Many hotels in Europe could learn from these attentive and service focused small boutique hotels!
The Jimbaran Beach is within a 10 Min walk accessable and the hotel runs their own beach club. Complimentary water and fruits as much as you wish, well done. The small boutique hotel offers fine dining served at your villa. Setting up a candle light dinner is no problem for them. Every time staff stepps by, they call up-front so you have your privacy at all times.
The hotel is run by a very nice and very attentive Manager (lady). She is really taking care for their guests and trained the staff extraordinary well. Greeting by name is just one little thing that makes you feel home. It is a shame that the owner (Swiss) does not pay too much attention for its guest... But as long as his staff takes care the world is on order...
Facit
The Jamahal is definitely a place to recommend if you look for privacy. Thanks a lot to the whole team.

Room Tip: We have had the Villa "Melati", nice medium size, pool was okay to jump in and out.
