Bali: You Say Tomato, I Say Potato

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

The group be­hind the in­fa­mous Potato Head Beach Club in Bali has opened their first re­sort right next door, so it’s time to scoot down and check out the brand new digs.

With a stun­ning mod­ern ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign com­posed of 1.5 mil­lion hand-laid ter­ra­cotta bricks, the new Kata­mama ho­tel in Seminyak, Bali is just steps away from the buzzing beach club, and em­bod­ies pretty much what you’d ex­pect from a pro­ject of the PTT Fam­ily, which runs Potato Head: a friendly staff, an uber-trendy look, and a laid­back yet in­fec­tious en­ergy. If you’re com­ing to Bali to while away the days with surf and sand—this is where you want to be.

The first or­der on the agenda: a cock­tail. Each of the 58 suites is out­fit­ted with an in-room bar, com­plete with ex­ten­sive bar equip­ment for guests to mix their own drinks. Or head to Akademi bar, where you can ex­per­i­ment with lo­cal Ba­li­nese in­gre­di­ents, dif­fer­ent mat­u­ra­tion meth­ods and spir­its in a range of classes and work­shops.

Next door to Akademi, Aussie im­port MoVida has kicked off its first over­seas ven­ture. Bright and airy with tra­di­tional hand­wo­ven fab­rics and trop­i­cal plants, the restau­rant of­fers a menu of Span­ish jamóns, in­ven­tive tapas with lo­cal in­gre­di­ents, and sig­na­ture dishes in­clud­ing the in­fa­mous air-dried wagyu with poached or­ganic egg and truf­fle foam.

Other ameni­ties in­clude a state-of-the-art gym and an out­door swim­ming pool set in a lush trop­i­cal gar­den. Of course, if your idea of a hol­i­day is loung­ing on the beach with a drink in hand, mo­sey over to the beach club, where you can flash your Kata­mama card and bunker down on a lounger for the day with the beau­ti­ful Seminyak beach at your feet. Wel­come to par­adise.

From $2,095 per night. Jl Petitenget 51B, Seminyak, Bali, 80361, In­done­sia, (+62) 361-302 -9999, the-kata­mama.com
