Jamahal Private Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 58 Hotels in Jimbaran
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The moment we arrived at Jamahal it was obvious that this resort was extraordinary. That impression lasts the entire time you are at Jamahal. My husband and I were thrilled with our week long stay and highly recommend this resort to other couples. Not only is the hotel and its location satisfying, but the staff is incredible! They are always cheerful and courteous. The food was another positive. Everything is fresh and organic and it shows. The location is yet another positive. On the short walk from the resort to the beach you walk right past the #1 restaurant in Bali (currently rated by TripAdvisor) Cuca. I recommend Cuca for a tapa style dinner featuring delicious cocktails and even better desserts. There are a lot of great options close to the resort. The only bad part about Jamahal is leaving. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Sandat 9 offered private and secluded access to the main pool.

We spent 3 week in Indonesia on July travelling around Java, Borneo and Bali. Last 9 days we stayed in Jamahal. And to be honest it´s like from fairy tale. Who´s looking for silent place full of hindu and private athmosphere, Jamahal is perfect! Clean, smelly villa, luxury swimming pool, flowers in the bath, and absolutely fantastic food. Team of Jamahal is totaly professional and they´re giving really perfect servis from morning call and breakfast to incredible dinner and preparing villa for the night. Private beach is outside the area but you can reach it by 3 minutes walk on silent street. Beach offers club and very comfortable sunbeds. Massage of whole body was fantastic. The architecture of the resort is modern Balinese style from quality wood and stone furnishings. Jamahal is the best where we´ve stayed. We travelled all around 30 countries around the world. Marketa and Pavel from Czech republic.

We choose the resort for our summer holiday from Booking.com site. Once we have arrived we were impressed about the beauty and the elegance of the location. We have rented a villa with swimming pool. After 2 days the manager propose us to move to their biggest villa with full size swimming pool for a minimum amount as difference. Was one of the best locations I've ever stay. Service was excellent, personal very friendly and the food amazing. I can recommend this location for people who are looking for relaxation. The ladies from the Spa were highly trained.

Room Tip: Look for the full size swimming pool villa called Frangipani

This was our first experience of bali and what a way to start. This place is beautiful.

The rooms, gardens pool are very well kept and clean. Even the basic room had a large bed, outdoor bathroom tub etc with a large mirror / make up area.

The complimentary lotions etc are of the best quality and as we suffer from mosquito bites the staff ensured the room was always mosquito free with incents.

The staff are world class. From security to cleaners they try and remember your names. The beach is a 5 minute walk which some think is a drag but its not biggy at all as once your there you have your own area where the staff take care of you especially the smiley older lady.

Dhita the director is outstanding. She is welcoming and wants to ensure her guests are happy as can be. She treated us to an upgrade on the last day to the pool villa. All is can I says wow! Huge pool, open plan decking and kitchen, soaking up the sun in privacy playing songs off of my iPod connected to the Yamaha sound system. The pond was full of koi and the lounge had a 32 inch led!

If you can afford it, even a basic room, go for it. Don't look anywhere else. I'm fussy at the best of times and use trip advisor to plan holidays so I owe it to you all to be honest.

They even changed the router as the wifi in our room was weak!

Tried to return but didn't hear back from the hotel :(

The Jamahal was exactly what the doctor ordered after our wedding weekend and 24 hours of flying from the US. As we walked out of the airport, our driver was waiting for us with a cold towel, Frangiapani lei (probably more for the driver, so he didn't have to smell us after our long flight), and cold water - exactly what we were looking for after our flight.

When we arrived to the hotel, the manager informed us we were being upgraded from one of the junior villas to the presidential villa. We walked into the villa and our jaw dropped. The villa's pool was bigger than most hotel pools I saw in Bali and the gardens were incredible.

The best part of this hotel was the privacy and incredible service of the staff. With only 13 villas, it's possible to not see any other hotel guests if you want. This isn't for everyone, but we really enjoyed the 4 nights of peace and quiet after our long travels. They also don't allow any children here, which really makes this place perfect for couples looking to get away. And the staff here was just AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about all of them. From their friendliness and professionalism serving meals (all of the food was incredible) in our villa to bringing us a movie to watch at 10pm, they are all first class.

My only concern before arriving was the property not being right on the beach. This was not a big deal at all. It was a 10 minute walk to the beach or the hotel shuttle would drive you down there. The walk is also on a private road to other hotels, so there is no traffic and no one bothers you. Then when you need to cross the main road the hotel is on, the hotel security guard comes out and stops traffic for you to cross.

We will definitely be coming back to the Jamahal one day!

We stayed for 3 nights at Jamahal and we were totally blown away by the impeccable service from the staff. The staff go out of their way to ensure that you feel right at home in their villa.

We ordered a low-fat banana milkshake and warm milk (low-fat) on our first night (8 Aug) and were told that it was not available and nearby stores were closed for the day. However, we were promised that it will be available the following morning. With no disappointment, the staff (every one of them including counter staff and the butler) actually remembered our preference and made sure that low-fat milk is served every time we ordered meals or drinks. To add on, we were given complimentary tapas (which tasted absolutely great!) along with the mains for our dinner on our first night!

On our second morning (9 Aug), we were also impressed that the staff actually prepared breakfast for us even though the last serving time was 11:30am (we left the villa at 1am for Mt. Batur hiking and was only back to the villa at 12pm). We were feeling tired and wanted to have our massage treatment that afternoon. The staff facilitated our booking and got back to us very promptly. We also told the staff that we were going Kisik Grill and Bar for our dinner and they checked with us on our reservation details. They advise us on the time needed to travel to Kisik and facilitated with the taxi booking to ensure that we reach our destination as scheduled.

We visited Jimbaran beach (ten minutes by foot) and were ferried by the villa's transport. The staff at the beach attended to us and got us a pair of beach benches. The staff even ensure that we have an unobstructed view of the sea when another beachgoer attempted to set his beach bench in front of us.

On our last day, the staff also arranged shower facility for us before we head to airport for our flight (at 6:55pm) to make sure that we will be comfortable during our flight.

To add on to the personal touch, every staff remembered the activities we do every day and they will always strike a conversation with you based on the activities you did that day. Room were maked-up twice a day, where you will experienced clean and tidy room each time you stepped into your villa. Breakfasts were served promptly at the time you indicated on your order sheet and the bread are always freshly baked from the oven!

I am reminiscing the four days already as I am typing this review. It was really an unforgettable stay. Thanks Jamahal for making my trip to Bali a perfect one.
