We arrived having spent a few days in Ubud and initially were disappointed by the enclosed and slightly dark aspect of our room and the layout of Jamahal. It's a place where you can not interact with any other guests if you so choose, with a narrow path between high hedges leading to the garden villas, the doors to the rooms set back from the path.
However, the rooms are large and spacious, the bed is extremely comfortable and you can generally find you have the pool all to yourself.
The beach club is really only a few minutes walk away and, although crossing the road unaided is possibly the riskiest thing you can do in Bali (hence the man with the flag during the day and the light sabre by night to help cut a swathe through the endless hordes of scooters and cars) it's lovely and indulgent to be shuttled there and back.
The spa is a real treat too - so calming and restful.
But the single best thing about Jamahal is the staff and the service. They really can't do enough for you and really really care. I'd go back tomorrow - but I'd choose a different room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Definitely not a main stream resort but the place for a great service experience. ... more less
