Ancient craftsmanship. Modern aesthetics.
A centre for balance. Potato Head Suites, formerly known as Katamama, was designed in collaboration with architect Andra Matin and built from materials drawn from Mother Earth. Over 1.8 million terracotta bricks were hand-crafted by artisans in the village of Darmasaba to form the building’s walls. The 57 suites within them are bright, spacious and filled with new-and-old treasures from around Indonesia. They are made to feel like home.
Ancient healing takes place in the spa; the palm-lined swimming pool and private bar is Seminyak’s true answer to an oasis. Positioned at the heart of our Desa, but tucked away in its own pocket of tranquility, it’s the perfect place to go inward, exhale and recharge.

What People Say
“Each of the rust-coloured bricks in Andra Matin’s bold architectural design were hand-pressed in a local village while the smooth teak furniture is custom-made, and the table runners, soft throws and batik cushions have all been hand-woven.”
“A pioneer in this area… a hotel that was built using the centuries-old tradition of locally handmade bricks and operates according to a ‘be good, do good’ ethos.”
Condé Nast Traveler
“This eye-catching red brick edifice, a lava-stone’s throw from Semiyak beach, is one sexy (Kata) mama. …The guestrooms channel sleek mid-century vibes – loft height, geometric print wooden walls, denim rugs, booze-filled bars – and the restaurant is constantly abuzz.”
