“Nice place....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2009

Bali offers a lot of possibilty to stay. The Jamahal is a good one for the Bukit area.
A small hotel not far from the beach with all the confort of a 4 stars hotel.
It's the second time for me: no surprise then except the perfect maintenance of the place.
All the rooms are different and take care when you choose: sometimes you can find a better one. Our room "cempaka" was call "superior garden": we had a jacuzzi. But take care: not really a terrace with sun. Maybe try an other one. The breakfast is limited and expensive. The pastry basket is not an honor for the hotel for ex.
The staff is good but....you are more in the standart of Europe than the standart received in Bali. Don't expect the little "+" than you find in the great boutique hotels on the island. No flexibility without money (maybe like in Switzerland, the country of the owner). We try to have a late departure: no way : 50% of the night price ( the hotel was no full). We ask to use the shower of the spa: yes if we book for a seance of therapy, if not : no. We use than the shoxer of the "private beach".....Is it really a bad point: in europe or in US, you expect it , in Bali no.....
In summary: a good hotel 4 stars, but the private resort.....the definition yes, the feeling about it no....Maybe the staff (the guest relation) have to learn the local practice and no import and adopt the practice from Europe or US

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2009

Although it is a very nice hotel in its own right, it's not in the same league as the intercontinental bail. The staff are no where as friendly, rooms are big, but decoration has an uncomfortable mix of southeast Asian, and western elements. Website is uninformative and looks like its been designed in the 90s. If the resort was located in Hawaii or the Caribbeans, it would a fantastic property, but given some of the competition (and their prices) in the area, I can only describe it as average. Next time i go Bali, I'm going back to the Intercontinental.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2009

We were on honeymoon and found paradise.
We will never forget the warm welcome of the hotel staff, and the excellent service from them during our entire stay. Their professionalism and friendliness is something we did never see before.You get the feeling that everyone is there just for you. After just a couple of hours every staff member knows your name.

The villas are beautifull and very private, the bathroom is gorgious, and as they knew we were honeymooners, everywhere in the villa and in the bathroom there were flowers in the form of hearts. The pool is beautifull. In walking distance, they have a small beach which is excellent and if you don't want to walk there's always a shuttle from the hotel avalilable.

If you just want to relax or deconnect, this is the place to be and absolute worth coming here. It is not cheap, but it is worth every penny!

In ancient sanskrit, "jamahal" means "precious time;" this small private estate has been transformed into one of Bali's best boutique resorts, a heaven for maximum 12 couples and honeymooners seeking precious time pampered by 70 attentive staff together. Private and cozy, jamahal is a splendid collection of ten suite villas and three villas. Structures and interiors artfully blend contemporary and traditional elements. Located in the center of former fishing village of jimbaran with a private beach club only 350 meters away from the resort.
