The staff were welcoming and very friendly and we all loved our stay! Always helpful and the food - both indonesion and western was amazing.
The villa is up a series of steep hills - so its great that there is a driver on hand as the taxi drivers aren't that keen on driving up there! Once you come through the gates, you are greeted with a huge living area with soaring high ceiling - this opens up onto a magnificent infinity pool with spectacular views! The drive up the hill is worth it!
All of the bedrooms are very comfortable - there is one that is quite a bit smaller but still gorgeous and suitable for a couple.
The best part of the villa is swimming and lazing by the pool, drinking bintang, listening to music and reading a book!
It is a 25 minute drive to Jimbaran Bay, and we went out for a wedding and dinner at a couple of the big hotels.
Very tranquil place to stay, and the dedicated massage room was great! All six of us got massages and various treatments and they even converted the entertainment room to fit in four at a time (2 couple per room - private)
I recommend this stay for a family or group of friends looking to just chill in the villa (you have everything you need!) Probably not for small children who can't swim, they would need to be supervised in any case because of the infinity pool.
EXCELLENT big comfortable beds in all rooms.
I would stay here again.
The only thing I would say is that the bed linen needs some updating as it was a bit faded and old. And a couple of the pool towels need updating too, some were a bit tatty and had holes....But that in no way changed what an amazing time we had - just a little suggestion to make the experience top class!

The Villa is beautiful, staff excellent. If you want to relax and enjoy the pool and villa without any of the hustle and bustle of town, this is definitely one to put on the list. I hope the villa managers realise the value of staff like Oka, Gedde, Marde and Agung, they make the stay perfect. Agung's food is restaurant quality, Oka an absolute gem. Gedde is a skilled driver who never complains or even looks cheesed off when he is asked to drive up and down those hills all day. He is also a great for guide, he took us to terrific places, even prepared to leave before dawn to see sights miles away. The Villa has obviously had trouble with the hot water in the main room for some time and that is still an occasional issue, but not a show stopper. I don't really think it is ideal for small children, the steps to the pool and the staircase to the entertainment room are really steep and the latter needs a balustrade at the top. There are also the invisible staff, gardener, security etc that never intrude. The gardens are just as you see in the photos, the rome also the same. We did not ask for a coking school, or to go to the market but not sure how it would really work. They need to improve the system for checking the grocery bills, as it remains an issue, unless you can read indonesian they could put anything on them (and probably do). This can leave you feeling a bit, ..taken advantage of, when things like "super 10's" show up. Perhaps the management could take some responsibility here. I was happy to provide a heavy tip for the staff as they were without doubt the making of the villa, and I suspect the last to see any of the rewards. All in all I would highly recommend staying here, particularly if Oka and Gedde are available to make your stay the very best, the children absolutely adored them and we felt completely safe occasionally leaving them in their care at the villa for short periods.

My sisters, my two children, (9 and 13) and one brother in law spent a week at the Villa Jewel in late July.
Upon arrival we were treated to a flawless service and this continued until we left. With a minor issue noted upon leaving this has been dealt with by management with in an appropriate and effective mesaure. Management were on top of everything and Mr Vasily and Miss Oxana were always responsive to any questions or issues we had. I cannot fault them in thier delivery of service.
The Villa Experience
With four bedrooms, sitting room, extended outdoor facilities, turtles and fish to watch and THAT amazing pool, car on call and kitchen right there you want for nothing.
Oka is THE BEST butler! No one works harder or is more accomodating that this man.
The driver Gedde is superb, we worked the poor man hard and nothing was ever too much trouble.
The chef we had could cook anything and did so everything was delicious.
Cleaning staff were discreet and efficient and accomodating.
Go there to relax, have a party or to just experience the view. The photos on all the web sites are true to the location and every thing is thoguht of. Hot water system can be a problem but a minor issue in such a fantastic location.
Use the opportunity of staying there and having your own chef to experience cuisine of the islands. We did and were not disappointed.
The day bed was fantastic, the movie room a havean, the bedrooms well appointed and beds comfortable.
We had masages on site in the Spa room and would reccomend this to anyone, it was a great way to start our visit.
I would love to go back and next time will be staying longer!
Saphire room is the best view, but every room has a view to die for.
Thank you once agin to all who made our stay so glorious.
