Jamahal Private Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 57 Hotels in Jimbaran
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 29, 2013

My wife and I spent the final 4 nights of our honeymoon here. It's a very small (13 villa) and private resort with phenomenal staff and service. Jamahal is all about service with 24 hour butler service at your beck and call. With the small number of guests and lots of staff everything is not only a call away, but all our requests were met with in a matter of minutes - very different from my previous experiences staying at large 5-star resorts.

We found that the staff regularly went out of their way to enhance our experience, from giving us a ride down the street to find an ATM, to helping us make dinner reservations for our time in Hong Kong after we left Bali. They did everything with a smile and grace that made this a great experience.

Had a wonderful time at Jamahal! From the friendly shuttle pickup from the airport to the warm reception at the hotel and the beautiful intimate setting, everything was perfect. We got VIP package which included an upgrade to a private pool villa which was lovely. The rooms were spacious, well equipped and the plunge pool itself was of a good size.
The staff were wonderful, especially Yanti, our concierge who made sure our every needs were taken care of. And given my wife was 31 weeks pregnant at that time, they went above and beyond to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible.
Perhaps the best thing about the place is its intimate setting. With only 13 villas and no children below 16 policy, there are no pesky teenagers or obnoxious guests to bother you.
In summary, a wonderful little private resort for those looking for a intimate romantic getaway, or in our case some much needed RnR.

We booked Jamahal for our honeymoon and were looking for something unique and special, we were not disappointed. My wife and I stayed at Jamahal for 2 weeks and we were heart broken to leave. The staff are wonderful, our experience at Jamahal would not have felt half as special if it wasn't for their attentive and genuine happiness to make you feel comfortable.

Breakfast was gorgeous and served at our choosing every morning. We ate at Jamahal on 4 evenings and every time the food was tasty and plentiful. Wine is expensive anywhere you go but at least at Jamahal it was worth the price.

We went for a pool villa, which was faultless, the villa was very comfortable and luxuriously decorated. It was great having your own mini pool to take a dip in at any time.

Bali is an amazing place, we travelled around using taxis as it was relatively cheap to do so. You can get a driver all day for approximately 30 GBP. We loved staying close to Jimbaran Bay most of the time, the beach is quiet and sea clean. At night the beach is lively with all the beach hut restaurants serving freshly caught fish, but there are other options if you don't like seafood!

I would strongly recommend Jamahal to any couples looking for a private getaway and privacy.

I find reviewers who don't give context for their experience as a traveler frustrating so I'd like to lead off by saying that myself and my wife have traveled extensively throughout the world and traveled this area of the world a lot in particular. We are well accustomed to travel at 4/5 star properties and have zero qualms about complaining when things aren't right.

I want to give you that context because I am going to say that Jamahal is the best property that we have ever stayed at. Without a doubt.

That statement isn't meant as a compliment or exaggeration - it's just a fact. Jamahal is exactly what it seems to be - an intimate, serene, beautiful escape that is ideal for couples. The rooms are well appointed, carefully designed and some of the best food that we ate on our two week trip was here.

Two things make it stand out above all other hotels which we've visited:

1) It's thoughtful. From its design to execution, Jamahal has a clear vision behind it and that vision isn't about a "nice place to stay". It's about giving you an experience and that is why you will remember it.

Travel is rarely about the hotel - it's always about the experience. The staff at Jamahal know that and they craft a stunning and unique experience very carefully. And, somehow, it feels like it's just for you and no one else.

Somehow it feels like it's their honor to have you as a guest (and that's no small feat when you're dealing with a seasoned traveler).

2) The staff. This is often a huge oversight with hotels who don't seem to understand what Jamahal does know: a hotel isn't its brick and mortar - a hotel is its people.

The staff at Jamahal are open, smiling, kind, honest, helpful without ever being overbearing (and it's real help - not someone angling to make an extra buck with a kick back). This isn't a veneer that you get at some places. There aren't no fake smiles here. Everyone actually wants you to enjoy your stay as much as you can. Don't hesitate to ask them for advice - it will be given freely and honestly.

In summation, Jamahal was a memorable and impeccable experience and worth every dollar. The fact that I'm bothering to even write this review speaks to that. I'm writing this because I want everyone to have the incredible experience that we just did.

Jamahal is a beautiful place, not too big (only 13 villas) and very intimate. Our villa was superb. We had our own private plunge pool and the main guest pool was also very inviting. The room was spacious and the outdoor bath and spa were beautiful. The staff were delightful - helpful and friendly without being obtrusive. We could not recommend Jamahal more highly for a quiet break (away from the craziness of Seminyak and Kuta), yet close enough to their own private beach (a 5-10 minute walk) to enjoy a swim in the quiet waters of Jimbaran Bay.

Room Tip: Rooms at the far end of the property are probably quieter but all rooms are very private. Choose a...

We travel extensively and Jamahal was probably one of the nicest properties we have stayed at anywhere in the world.

We rented the pool villa and it was beautiful - clean, fresh and secluded. It was beautifully decorated - the bed was comfortable and the lounging space both inside and outside was amazing. We also really enjoyed the outdoor shower (though, not something that everyone might like).

All of the food we enjoyed but what really made the stay was the staff. Everyone was helpful and pleasant. They really made the difference to our time there. They really took care of all the details.

The beach was lovely - just a short walk away (which was nice to break up the day) with a reserved section of the beach with comfortable loungers and umbrellas, along with water, towels and a bathroom. Several times the staff offered to drive us from the hotel but we thought that it was unnecessary given how close the beach was to walk to and we enjoyed the walk.

One small thing - this is not a resort where you're going to hang out in the public areas and meet other couples. It's really a nice, secluded getaway (which is exactly what we wanted).

We chose Jamahal based on the trip adviser reviews and we were not disappointed.

From the moment we arrived late one evening till the minute we left, the staff were always smiling, curtious, could not do enough for you and such genuine people. The staff make this place special.

We stayed in a pool suite villa which was spacious, spotless, very private and surpassed our expectations. The food was very good and the beach only a short stroll was also lovely and there was a good selection of fish restaurants directly on the beach where you can watch the sun set.

We were very very sad to leave and would definitely stay again

Room Tip: If you can pay a little extra choose a pool villa
