3) Jamahal Private Resort & Spa
The Jamahal is the most exclusive stay on Bali. It is a private resort and spa that offers private access to 12 hand crafted villas. These Villas are obviously difficult to reserve which makes this one of the most exclusive Hotel stays on the entire Island.
These Spa pool villas are spacious and have an indoor and outdoor setup much like a home you own would, except this home is in tropical Bali. The rooms are surrounded with beautiful gardens. They each have their own Private spas and hot tubs and even have a private spa room. This additional room comes with additional benefits like another shower, a second bath tub, and another toilet. That can come in handy after a night of drinking, trust me.
The coolest part about the Spa room? It can be converted to a second king size bed. I’ve never had to use this feature, but I’d imagine that if you’re having a massive fight or just extra company, it would come in handy.
The Jamahal also has a private beach for its vacationers. You can’t go wrong with a private beach in Bali.
