Villa Jamalu Photos

Check Availability

Since our first visit in 2010, Jamalu has had some renovations done: the gym has been remodeled with teak flooring and white Palimanan tiled walls, and seems even better equipped than before, with everything you need for a cardio, resistance, or Pilates workout. There’s also a fridge, flat-screen TV and DVD player, all in front of a mirrored wall. A carved doorway opens into to an atmospheric massage room with rust-coloured walls and shelves scattered with ethnic curios. The hall leads to a guest washroom and classy pool lounge with fridge, home entertainment system, stylish sofas, a 9ft American pool table and vibrant art work.

The ground floor of the U-shaped villa houses three bedrooms, all with sliding doors opening onto the pool. These rooms are similar in size and style, with queen-size beds, built-in wardrobes, iPod docks, and marble ensuite bathrooms with showers (one with a bath tub). One has TV and DVD player, the other a funky cowhide chair and rattan chest of drawers. The upstairs master bedroom opens on to a veranda, and is furnished with a teak four-poster bed, wooden drawers, TV and DVD player, and walk through wardrobe leading to the bathroom with jacuzzi bath.

Also located on the ground floor is a combined office/kids playroom with shelves filled with toys and games, and glass doors opening on to a peaceful grassy courtyard. A second good-size lounge has a Bose home entertainment system, a large flat-screen TV and a Sony PlayStation. This lounge is decorated in elegant turquoise shades with a long sofa, loveseat and antique four-poster daybed surrounding a solid teak coffee table.

A winding wooden stairway, in keeping with the wood floors found throughout the villa, ascends to the first floor and divides a long room into living and dining/kitchen areas. This room enjoys a fabulous ocean view through glass doors and has the option of being closed off and air conditioned or opened up to let the sea breeze in. The lounge has another large flat-screen TV and Bose home entertainment system, long sofas and a loveseat.

A long teak banquet table seats 12 in comfy rattan carvers next to a well-equipped kitchen with sleek black granite work surfaces. Outside on the white stone terrace an all-weather rattan dining table also seats 12 for dinner under the stars, while a barbecue, round stone table and canopied daybed complete the scene. The first floor terrace and the poolside are both wired for sound.
