Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
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).

The Bali/Lesser Sunda Islands region
Bali is Indonesia's most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.
The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life's more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.
Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours' flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia's capital.
The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.
Jimbaran lies on the western side of Bali's narrow isthmus, a sweeping bay that curves for five kilometres from the southern side of the airport to the bushy headland that is the home of the Four Seasons Resort and the start of The Bukit peninsula.
In spite of the many five-star developments in the area, Jimbaran Beach remains unspoilt and tranquil, the pace is still unhurried, the atmosphere relaxed and the sand soft and golden. The entrance to the bay is blocked by an unbroken coral reef, so although the calm water is not suitable for surfing, it is a safe haven for swimming. During the daytime it attracts guests from the nearby resorts, together with the occasional windsurfer. In the late afternoons, Balinese families come down to the beach. Kids paddle in the shallows and build sandcastles that are more reminiscent of miniature Taj Mahals than of Norman fortresses. Ice cream pedlars cruise for custom on pushbikes, dogs gambol through the sand, young men play football with makeshift goalposts, and the delectable smell of grilled sweet corn blended with charcoal smoke emanates from food trolleys parked at the water's edge.
The magnificent crescent bay is west facing, so at sunset the beach becomes the scene of a daily ritual as hundreds of visitors take their ringside seats at the plethora of seafood warungs; these simple beachside cafes run virtually the length of the bay and serve up the catch of the day.
