Reviewed February 27, 2014

From the moment you are collected at Denpasar airport you know you are in good hands. The drivers are careful on the roads and the service is subtle and considerate.

Even though we were not on our honeymoon, I would say this is the perfect destination for honeymooners. The villa itself is incredibly private - we stayed in Sesah (that's the name of the villa). It has a main outdoor living/dining/kitchen area (including TV with over 60 channels - including plenty of HBO and movie channels) the indoor bedroom with air conditioning and mosquito net over the bed and another tv, mini bar with beer and non-alcohol beverages. The bedroom connects to the outdoor shower, bathtub, toilet and bathroom sinks. There was also a second bedroom and bathroom out near the pool which we didn't use but would be great if you had two additional guests staying with you.

Don't let the outdoor shower/toilet thing put you off if you're reading this. On reading reviews before staying here and looking at other villa options I was a little uncertain but the outdoor shower/bath experience was one of the highlights for me. The water pressure and the heat were incredible - better than the majority of high end hotels we have visited. I couldn't get enough of it.

I did get eaten my mosquitoes on a few occasions (but I'm prone to this back home anyway) and they provide you with a really great bug spray and mosquito coils etc so otherwise you wouldn't notice the bugs. They spray the property every Saturday between 9am and 5pm and I'm sure this helps with keeping the bugs at bay.

Here's my top three reasons to stay here:
1. if you're looking for a private getaway - this is for you. There are no other tall buildings blocking your sunlight or looking into your villa (unlike other villas for example in Seminyak) AND you hand in your keys when you go out so they know when (or when not to) service your room - so pick this property if you want ultimate privacy. I would definitely recommend for honeymooners.
2. if you're looking to spend most of your time in your villa - this is for you. You could spend 5 nights just swimming in the pool, reading, going to the spa and eating for sure.
3. if you're not into the 'Kuta' thing - this villa is 20 minutes from Kuta by car (possibly more in traffic) but it's a 2 minute walk to Jimbaran beaches. While they're not the best beaches in Bali, the 'sunbed' voucher arrangement with the Jimbaran Puri Bali Hotel on Jimbaran beach means you get a luxirious sunbed (and use of their pool) and you can get a 30 minute quality massage here for around $15 AUD - which my husband tells me was the best one of our trip. You can also get the shuttle to their Nusa Dua property (which we didn't get around to but they have their own private beach which I hear is wonderful).

Here's where they can improve:
1. The food is good but not high end international hotel quality. If you're staying for more than 3 nights you probably don't want high tea every day in your package - it gets a bit repetitive and it's not particularly healthy.
2. The roosters and the dogs making noise at 5am can be a bit annoying but you get used to that.
3. The beds - from an Australian traveller who loves the beds at the Westin and Crown - the beds are Kayumanis are extremely firm by comparison. Again - something you get used to but probably not my preference.
I would definitely stay here again when travelling to Bali and would highly recommend this if you love having your own pool and privacy of your own villa.

Room Tip: Sesah was gorgeous. You won't be disappointed with this room.

My husband and I were upgraded from The Gangsa Private Villa to the Kayumanis Jimbaran Private Estate and spa for our last night in Bali due to overbooking. This place is absolutely beautiful! We were escorted there by the personnel of Gangsa and we did not want to waste time checking in and all that BS since we were already inconvenienced to swap hotels for our last night in Bali. They, of course accomodated us and we went straight to our villa after picking out our welcome drink. Though I wish they had went out of their way to initiate that instead of us.

Boy, we were blown away. This place is HUGE and clean and so beautiful. I feel like I was in a travel magazine. Service is again top notch as it is with the other Kayumanis establishments. Free shuttle service is provided to anywhere in Jimbaran. Staff are amazing. I have the best service here at the Kayumanis estates. I don't think I have any complaints at all with this place. I hope to be back again!

wow . this place is perfect. from the moment you are greeted by the amazing staff you know you are in for something special. the villas are amazing , each with its own name , not number . . huge pool , outdoor living areas , bedroom which opens up to the pool deck , out door rain shower and bath , kitchen , just everything.
and get this , free mini bar which is stocked daily .
complimentary private car service to kuta and nusa dua is also available and if they dont have a car spare at the time , they will pay for a taxi. ( one of the staff even used her own car to drive us to the air port on her way home ). it is located 200m from jimbaran beach and just a stroll to the seafood restaurants. but still just 15 mins form kuta ( a $5 taxi fare ). you also have free access to their nusa dua resort which has a private beach .
breakfast is a choice of western or indonesian and you can have it in the restaurant or in the privacy of your villa.
we also had our 3 year old with us and the staff treated him like royalty.
also on the estate is cuca restaurant. a meal or two there is a must .
i could write forever about this place it is so good !

This is a truly fabulous place to stay. The villas are huge in land area and generous in accommodation space. The grounds are immaculate. The service is outstanding in every respect. The co-located restaurant, Cuca, is world-class and perfect for the location. We would recommend this to anyone thinking of a really special break.

We just returned from our 8 night stay in this private villa resort. We will return!!! The gem of this resort is it's staff. I have certainly travelled the world and I have never seen a staff that goes out of their way more.

The estate is comprised of your own private villa - we called it a compound. From the moment you arrive, the staff greets you at the open air check in, located in the middle of a water feature. Welcome drinks are served and from that moment on, we were treated like royalty. Everything is located in the open air, excluding the bedrooms. There is something magical about showering while you are surrounded by tropical flowers. The rooms are large and the beds were the most comfortable we have had in the Far East. My husband and I both suffer from back problems and we always carry pain medications, just in case. This was our first trip where we did not have to use them. The living room is huge. We were a bit concerned about noise, being that everything is so open but we rarely heard any of our neighbors. Also a concern were bugs but even those concerns were proven unnecessary. On one evening there were a lot (a lot!) of moth type of insects flying all over. We just turned the lights off and within an hour they all died off. One call to the front desk and immediately a crew came in, swept them up, and all was clear. No big deal. We had brought some of our own food (kids can be picky) but we barely used any.

Breakfast is made to order and is served in your villa. We loved the sound of "Good morning! Breakfast!" Everything is set up for you. At the end of breakfast, our butler came to check our schedule for that day. Literally everything is taken care of. Private drivers and vehicles take you where ever you want to go (free unless you travel outside the main area, which we only did once). Your villa is cleaned when you are out and two small refrigerators are restocked. While you are at dinner, your room is turned down for the night (bathrobes are laid out, mosquito nets are pulled down). Loved it! Afternoon tea is served in the villa also and the routine is the same as breakfast. The food is very good. We tried different breakfasts and teas and it was all wonderful. The on site restaurant "Tapis" was wonderful. The food was great, the staff was kind, accommodating, and spot on. We went to the New Years BBQ. The food was good but what made the evening great was the interaction between the staff, the other guests, and the kids. The hilarious Pirate Show (cheeky but done with so much enthusiasm) and the gift raffle (yes!!! I won the cookies) made the evening.

When you go out and return to the resort, you are greeted at your car with a friendly "Welcome Home". At first I thought that was a little over the top but by day two, it really felt that way! You can tell that the staff truly enjoys taking care of you. We didn't have to worry about a thing. On the second day, we took a day trip and all of us connected with our driver Edy. From that day on, Edy was our driver whenever we needed to go anywhere (providing he was at work). We were surprised that one day he chose to go home late just to be able to take us where we wanted to go. Truly kind. That is the way all of the employees were, from the front desk to the restaurant staff to the gardeners. We really did feel at home and when we left, we were sad to leave.

We were planning on visiting the Phillipines this spring to round out our time on this side of the world but after our time at Kayumanis Jimbaran, we decided to return to this particular estate instead. To be very honest, it was the way the staff treated us that was the tipping point for our decision. On one of the evenings, while ordering breakfast, I ended up mentioning to the staff that we were having such a wonderful time. Edy had mentioned that he was from the North of the island and we were talking about what else there was to see. By the end of the conversation, between the three staff members at the front desk, my entire Spring Break was planned! They researched, made recommendations, offered assistance in arranging transportation, and even volunteered to do additional research after we left!!! We could tell that they really are proud of their heritage, their culture, and they honestly want you to have a great visit. I can't praise them enough.

If there was any drawback in our visit, it would be the area immediately surrounding the estate. The beach was not clean and the small street the estate is located on is dirty between the estate and the beach. Of course this is absolutely normal and it is the same in Thailand, China, and Hong Kong. We did not take advantage of going to the partner resorts where we could have had our own, private area on a pristine beach. We had such a great time relaxing in our villa that we didn't really want to go anywhere else! When we return in April, we will try and take a day at the beach. We can not wait to visit again!

Room Tip: If you have very small children and use a stroller, ask for a villa near the entrance as the walk wa...

We stayed at Kayumanis 2nd week of december for 4 nights....i must say we had a fantastic time there. The villa was just amazing...the ambience, the pool....it was definitely romantic too. The room was spacious enough and wel maintained.

The food was amazing, most of the days we had the food at our villa itself and every time they had set it in a very special way, the staff were way too kind and polite. My husband being a veggie had absolutely no problem getting a good vegetarian meal, the chefs were always kind enough to cater to our demands.

The only small things that was slight uncomfortable was the aircon in our bedroom, it wasnt cooling enough and we had to keep informing the staff to fix it for us. The weather was so hot, that it was unbearable to sit outside. Also the toilet which is outside, was feeling a little wierd with the open toilet and bath area.

All iin all, a great experience, would definitely stay there on our next visit, hopefully he weather is a little better next time we r there.

Dear Mrs. Rups,

Greetings from Kayumanis Jimbaran Private Estate & Spa!
Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us at Kayumanis during your visit to Bali this month, also for sparing the time to write a glowing review of us on Tripadvisor. I will be sharing this review with my team to let them know that their efforts are much appreciated, that another guests depart with a smile.
We are happy that we have managed to ensure your comfort and special requests during your stay with us with our personal service. Our apologies regarding the Air Conditioning that they were not cold enough when they were sorely needed, I have personally looked into it and have fixed the issue with my Engineering team, rest assured that your villa will be nice and cold the next time you are with us.
We do have two types of design in our villas, perhaps for your upcoming visit we could recommend our partially outdoor bathroom set up for your comfort and a visit during our dry season period around April – November.

We look forward to welcoming you and your husband again soon then.

Warmest regards,
Suyanto and the whole team at Kayumanis Jimbaran
