“Recent stay Jabunami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

We stayed at this Villa in April and had chosen it based on price. This was because we were 3 single girls wanting our own room but still wanting something affordable and nice. The villa is as lovely as the pictures. I was lucky to have the main bedroom which was really gorgeous, staff freindly but not intrusive and very helpful. Breakfast simple and delicious. The only downfall is the distance to Echo Beach but if that is not an issue then this is the place. I did not realise until we left that we were probably only a 10 min drive to Petitenget and some lovely restaurants. The owner was very accommodating when we made a last minute change and the Villa manager (Gustu) saved us from starving one night :) We stayed in the 3 bedroom villa but had a look through the 4 bedroom and equally as nice. I liked the added extras of the coffee machine and the IPOD dock. Highly recommended.

Booked this 3bedrooms villa for 2nights(23-25april). The villa looked new, rooms are big, beds are comfortable, services are good!! Everything is just perfect. The butler can speak good English, so you need not be afraid if there is any communication break down. The only thing to improve is to have soccer channel in the tv channels list. Overall, my friends and I enjoyed every moment in the villa. We will definitely recommend this villa to all of our friends!

Room Tip: All bedrooms come with double bed. Only the room in the 2nd level does not have outdoor bathing faci...

We stayed at this villa for a week on our first trip to Bali. After much research, we chose a villa over a hotel (we usually stay in resorts) and Canguu for the quieter location. Jabunami Villa had such good reviews, our expectations were high. The villa, staff and location did not disappoint!!! Overall it was a great experience!

Here are some specifics...
- The villa is new and in beautiful condition. The beds were comfortable, black out curtains make late-sleeping easy and the climate control excellent.

- The villa is good for kids. Our children, ages 14, 11 & 6 slept well, ate well and loved the clean warm pool. They were comfortable in the family room and enjoyed watching movies that we brought and from the villa's collection in the evening.

- The villa provided us with a driver for our stay. Our driver was Noura. From the moment Noura met us at the airport (after midnight - without a complaint) he was a very valuable tour guide and extremely safe transporter. Some of our favorite meals were enjoyed at Noura's recommended local roadside stands!! Fabulous!!!

- The villa is in a lovely quiet area surrounded by rice fields and local homes. Beautiful!!

- Gustu the butler is absolutely the best!! Although Jabunami Villa is relatively new, Gustu is an experienced butler and it showed. His quiet manner and graciousness put us right at ease. He was our main contact during our stay. Each day, at our fantastic breakfast, we would talk to Gustu about our day and what we might need in terms of tour help and food. Any meal Gustu was involved in, some he even cooked himself, was delicious and inexpensive. I don't remember the exact details, but know we had a couple of unbelieveable lunches or dinners served at the villa that cost about $20US. The entire staff, which included several other caretakers, was excellent. We can't think of a single complaint or area that could be improved.

- Echo Beach and Echo Beach Cafe. Though not affiliated with the villa, they are very close by and we enjoyed our sunset time there very much. Other Bali tourists have to travel far to get there, Jabunami guests are luckily just a few minutes away.

Jabunami Villa was the centerpiece of our great Bali holiday.

First off, Ruth the owner who I corresponded with by email before our stay was very helpful and replied quickly with any questions I had. We had booked Air Australian flights and had to change our plans for a week later due to them going broke! I was surprised and happy when Ruth said she would offer us a free BBQ at the villa for all the trouble we had, had. This was a very nice touch.

Included in the rate, was 2 hour massage at the villa (this was amazing and one of the best, most professional massages we have had), breakfast every morning, airport pick-up and drop off, Driver (you just pay for petrol) and free wifi.

Airport pick up was easy and Nura the driver was excellent. His English is perfect and he is very friendly and easy to get along with. On arriving at the Villa it was beautiful, very private and secluded, but still close to Echo beach and shopping in Seminyak.

It was also a nice touch that on the first night, the fridge was stocked with complimentary beer, soft drink, eggs and spaghetti to make if we felt like. It is the little things that make the stay very nice.

Breakfast is amazing and more than enough. Bread, toast, Fruit, tea and coffee all prepared for you and cleaned away. We never went hungry.

Gusto who runs the place for Ruth when she is not there, is very helpful and caring and will attend to your every whim. We ate at the villa most nights which was prepared for by the staff, it was excellent and so cheap! We ordered take away from the local cafe one night and they were to busy to deliver, so Gusto went out and got it for us. They went to the supermarket and got us anything we wanted. It was great.

The pool is big and the complex is great for families.

Things to Improve on:

1. As mentioned in a previous review, the car is too small if you have more than 4 adults. We were 4 adults and one child (3 years old) and their was barely enough room for shopping, so any more people it would be too tight. We had an extra taxi to take out luggage to and from the airport as this would not fit in the car with all of us.

2. It would be nice to have cable or satellite TV at the hotel as there is no English speaking channels, news channel etc. We had plenty of DVD's to watch, but it would of been nice to watch BBC news or the like to see what was happening in the world.

3. Even though it is very nice to have the 'open plan' of the kitchen, dinning, lounge area, I think they need some wooden shutters or blinds etc. that can close off the area when needs be. As when it rains the water comes in quite far and also at night it is quite noisy to watch tv, etc, if other people have gone to bed, as you can hear the noise whilst you are in your rooms.

4. One of the showers in the rooms, the pressure wasn't working very well (we kept forgetting to ask if it could be fixed) and also the hot water tank is not big enough. The bath is huge and lovely, but there is not enough hot water to fill it, to fully use it. Also on cold , rainy days it would be nice to be able to have a longer shower, but this wasn't possible with the small hot water tank.

5. Personal choice I guess - but they only had really high pillows on the bed and we prefer lower pillows, so maybe have a variety to cater to everyone's' needs.

These are just small things that can be fixed and overall it was one of the best holidays and places we have stayed (we travel a lot). The staff made it so wonderful and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would definitely stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending it. We have already told all our friends.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and over look the pool

We recently stayed at Jabunami Villa for a week..in our party were four adults (two grand parents) and a three year old child.The weather didnt look too promising when we first arrived at the busy airport at night and we were all having second thoughts about the whole holiday.
But all was well when we arrived at the villa and were greeted by Gustu and crew.The villa is idealy situated away from the main busy road down a short track....each bedroom is around the swimming pool and has its own bathroom and an outside shower facility and the kitchen/tv area is open plan accessible to everyone which is great.The whole place is clean tidy and well decorated.
Every morning we were treated to a big breakfast...afternoon lunch or dinner can also be arranged which we did several times as Gustu is such a great cook.
I must also mention the driver provided who was very helpful and fun to be with.His advise on tourist destinations,shopping,money exchange etc invaluable in avoiding stress and saving hoilday time.We also took advantage of the visiting massage,manicure,pedicure,facial services on offer...a great way to end the day and very reasonably priced.
Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and i would recommend it to anyone...even families as all the staff seem to geuinely love children and nothing is too much bother.
We will definately be looking at going again in the future...on a final note the weather did in the end turn out really nice.

Room Tip: as with most holidays check the long range weather forcasts etc

I stayed with my extended family in the 3 bedroom villa in March 2012. The first pleasant experience was with the Large Van Transportation arranged with the villa management due to luggage & the six people we had in our family. Upon reaching the villa, we were greeted by the butler, Gustu, and his team and given an orientation of the villa.

Villa was new, clean and in pristine condition. Although situated in a quiet location off the main road, with the daily transportation provided, we had no issues with regards to access to the villa. Good for family seeking peaceful and private experience, and so close to nature and away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Gustu, Wayan & Kachong (??) did an excellent job in taking care of us during our stay, especially the breakfast. The initial refreshments, chips and soda provided was a welcoming experience too. Even when we need some condiments to prepare some fried rice for my young son, Gustu went out and came back in jiffy with what we needed on one of the nights.

Thank you Gustu and team for a wonderful experience....and thanks Ruth for this whole arrangement.

We would definitely look forward to come back to stay at Jabunami Villa if we are in Bali !

Improvement Feedback :

1. Have an awning / cover / shield erected as the outdoor shower in the Tomok Villa Master Bedroom is in full view from one of the 2nd Storey Bathroom in the adjoining 4-Bedroom Villa.
2. Have emergency lamps / torchlights to be stored in the villa.
3. Have the pool lights able to be turned-on and bypass the timer. We had to swim with some lanterns/lights brought by Gustu on one night due no other convenient time for us to enjoy the swimming pool.

I stayed with my family in the 3 bedroom villa in March. There was some confusion when the driver picked us up but this was cleared up after the driver confirmed with the villa management. Upon reaching the villa, we were greeted by the butler, Gustu, and his team and given an orientation of the villa. Villa was new and clean and is situated in a quiet location off the main road. Good for those seeking peace and nature. Gustu and team did a great job in taking care of us during our stay, especially the breakfast (including the one which they had to prepare in the early morning due to our early flight) and the excellent BBQ dinner that exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and price. Thanks Gustu and team for a wonderful relaxing stay!

Pros:
1. Excellent BBQ Dinner
2. Great service from Gustu and team
3. Quiet location

Things to improve:
1. Portable emergency lamps to be stored in the villa. We encountered a power trip during one stormy night and took a while for Gusta and team to bring in the lamps from their compound.
2. Communication between the Villa management and the driver on pickup.
