It’s no secret that Bali is brimming with first-class accommodation options, but the opening of The Katamama Hotel earlier this year set a new standard for the Indonesian hotspot.

Located in Seminyak, The Katamama Hotel is as stylish and considered as its neighbourhood. As the brainchild of the founders of the popular Potato Head Beach Club, the mid-century, 58-suite boutique hotel embodies Indonesian culture and design and offers guests the chance to experience the country’s natural beauty and authenticity in understated luxury.

Designed by renowned Indonesian architect, Andra Matin, every element of the hotel has been personally designed using the finest local artisans, architects, and artists using traditional and unique Indonesian techniques and practices, making use of local materials such a Balinese bricks, teak, handmade tiles from Java and terrazzo made on site.

If that isn’t enough, then treat yourself to one of two-storey rooftop suits and sip lychee cocktails in the rooftop garden, then take a rain shower post-swim while overlooking the ocean. And if you can drag yourself out of the beautiful interior—home to original Indonesia art, textiles and ceramics created by local craftspeople—wander downstairs to dine (for breakfast, lunch, and dinner) at the first international branch of MoVida, which is nestled at the base of the hotel. Scroll down and take a tour through the inspiring hotel which takes modern day quality and craftsmanship to a whole new level—then book yourself a holiday, stat.
