Desa Potato Head boutique hotel is where wellness, food, and design plays together

Sustainability, wellness, and community connection are among the property’s key pillars and the ethos is simple: Good Times, Do Good.

Desa Potato Head is a creative village by the ocean where music, art, design, food, and wellness play together. The property, set on the sand and surf of Petitenget Beach, Seminyak, Bali, is made-up of Potato Head Beach Club and a hotel, composed of 226 guestrooms. More than a place to visit or stay, the Desa is intended to inspire creativity, balance and progress for the future.

The 58-suite artisan property formerly known as Katamama has reopened as Potato Head Suites and is the soul of Desa Potato Head, Seminyak’s sustainable beachfront creative village.

The Design

With walls of textural temple bricks handmade in an ancient Balinese village and bespoke Jengki teak furniture recalling young Indonesian designers’ rebellious mid-century modern enthusiasm after independence from the Dutch, the hotel is a sanctuary for craftsmanship and artistry in every sense. Each element is imbued with meaning thanks to a fusion of ancient tradition with modern aesthetics. Warmth exudes as much from the custom furnishings, hand-woven, naturally dyed textiles, and intricate local handicrafts as it does our Potato Head family.

The Suites

The Suites are an oasis of peace and beauty, not only from the spacious suites—which come with access to the Beach Club and daybeds, gym and spa, plus in-room breakfast at no extra charge, a Zero Waste Kit and Anjat beach set—but the long, lush private pool, exclusive to its own guests. Akademi is the hotel’s experiential award-winning bar pouring curated craft cocktails and also offering workshops, while a new offering for each suite’s in-room bar can personalise it based on the guests’ intentions: wellness reset or party recharge.
