Perched on the hillside overlooking Jimbaran Bay and the distant airport runway, this is the perfect villa for the jet set to rock into and then keep on rolling. Bose home entertainment systems connect to speakers throughout the villa from the first and ground floor living areas as well as the basement pool room. There’s also Bose iPod docking in all four bedrooms and three large flat-screen TVs with surround-sound.
But Jamalu is also a dream holiday pad for kids (as if to prove the point, the villa’s name is derived from the first two letters of owners’ children’s names); there’s a Sony PlayStation 3 connected to one of the big screens, lots of games and toys, and a pool fence that can be erected to stop toddlers falling in. To entertain the grown-ups there’s a very well-equipped gym and massage room hidden away in the large basement along with an impressive pool lounge complete with imported 9ft American pool table.
Built over two levels (plus the basement), Villa Jamalu enjoys majestic views out over the hillside and across to the ocean. On the first floor is a large outdoor terrace with wonderful sunset panoramas, making this the perfect spot for outdoor dining. Joined to the terrace is a covered wooden veranda that runs the length of the first floor frontage. The views can also be enjoyed from the charming open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area. All the interiors are smartly designed and colour coordinated in the best quality furnishings and fabrics with tasteful contemporary artwork to match. The 15 x 7m saltwater pool is one of the deepest you’re likely to find at a villa. On the far side of the pool is an enormous shaded daybed, while loungers line the pool on the villa side. Only one kilometre from the beach and famous seafood barbecues of Jimbaran, Villa Jamalu is part of the Temple Hill gated complex. With two housekeepers, an excellent chef and charming manageress you’re very well catered for; the staff will also shop for you and prepare meals from a suggestion menu (groceries are on guest account).
