KATAMAMA POTATO HEAD HOTEL SEMINYAK BALI DELUXSHIONIST REVIEW

KATAMAMA | A DESIGN HOTEL IN SEMINYAK FOR COOL KIDS - Are you design savvy? love to party? and have a soft spot for everything artisanal? That's my first impression when I stepped my feet here at Katamama Seminyak. The design hotel that steals the attention because of its design, location, and concept. The first hotel project from Potato Head Group (yes, you know Potato Head Beach club already). So now, you can imagine the vibes here?

KATAMAMA | BOUTIQUE HOTEL SEMINYAK
Jl. Petitenget No.51B, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361
(0361) 3029999


The hotel doesn't really have a reception area, at the peak seasons it could be tricky especially if you come early, but if your room is ready, the check-in process will be done in your room, so does with check out, with a welcome drink will be also made & served in your room, you have your own bar space if you want to do experiment with your bartender ability. The design is Instagram and Pinterest worthy, all suites and my room has a view of the pool and neighborhood pool club so I can hear the music while sipping my cocktails from the balcony.

Breakfast is a la carte and for me was amazing (best classic eggs benedicts so far), you can drink from mocktails to Jamu (Indonesian traditional herbs juice), even the choice was limited but I quite enjoyed it. The only thing that disturbs me is the restaurant's staff feels like a hurry with their jobs to clean up your table (maybe this is their SOP because I feel the same way in Potato Head, and 2 of their restaurant Kaum & Ijen) but at the same time the reason may be for your own convenience.

The pool (also with gym) is relatively lively and quite, I loved it, the product they use is wonderful. The sleep robe, slipper, bath amenities speak their game to support local artist and sustainable. So no more question why the night rate at Katamama is above average, even on the same level as their beachfront contenders. The don't have private beach access, but you have a privilege as Katamama guest to spend your time at Potato Head Beach Club, with so many people, tourists, and amazing sunset as always.

Since there's no lobby and no online taxi allowed enter the area, if you plan to go to the next destination and hotel, it will be a good idea if you ask for a pick up from your next hotel, or even arrange it with Katamama (unless if you are okay, transport with a buggy car to the street and looking for a cab from there, ya I know it can be an unpleasant experience, but you need to respect the rules) - But overall stay at Katamama is a unique and cool experience, and only steps away to party

TASTEFUL THAILAND DINNER AT SALATHIP, SHANGRILA BANGKOK - Prawn, Sour, Sweet, Spicy and Mango are the main 5 words that describe Thailand food in my mind.

A quintessential Thai dining experience by the River of Kings. Savour authentic cuisine in Salathip's Thai-style teak pavilions while admiring exquisite classical Thai dance performances.

In Indonesia, we already know the sour spicy seafood soup of Tom Yam Goong, Fried Noodle like Pad Thai, and never fail iconic dessert, Mango Sticky Rice, and what a great way to end the day after temple hopping around Chao Phraya river and stop by at Salathip at Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok to try their recommendation. From Chicken with curry sous, all the meat, and vegetable including fresh seafood, and end the heavenly Thai food with some refreshing desserts, while enjoying Thai dance performance and the dynamic life of Chao Phraya River.

DELUXSHIONIST FOOD REVIEW SANJE RESTAURANT SEMINYAK

A HALF DAY IN SANJE RESTAURANT & LOUNGE - Bali is indeed a versatile place where people from all over the world come to experience its beauty and hospitality, the versatility comes in so many forms here, the obvious one is the food. The world has been participating in forming the shape of Bali's kind of life. When you come to a place, let's say a restaurant, there so many touches in there that brings your senses exploring the other side of the world. 

Like this Sanje Restaurant in The Seminyak Beach Resort, located in the prime location of luxury Seminyak overlooking Indian ocean, as you may know have the best sunset view on the island, while your sense of taste can explore from freshly Mediterranean for lunch break, then on the same day you will be served with sensational Balinese seafood for dinner, if. Looks like a perfect day for a food lover.

The word "Sanje" is derived from the local word for the dusk, and it's probably the best time at the west coast of the island because the sunset is always magnificent and full of colors. The open-air concept allows you to merges with the vibes of Seminyak beach; the sound. the wind and the smell and that huge tree protect you from direct sun, the resort itself full of greenery with fully high maintenance.

For me personally, enjoying my lunchtime here was beyond exceptional, the location was perfect, the food was excellent, the ambiance was lovely and the view during sunset was you-need-to-experience-yourself. The menu is also very various, it can be a confusion for some of you if there are too many choices, so I think if you want a bite of pizza or sharing plates, Sanje Restaurant will be my Seminyak recommendation for those who ask me, where to eat in Seminyak during the lunch to afternoon while waiting for sunset with a lively vibes and no overcrowded ambiance?

But just make sure to always check with reservation, especially dinner time (see, sunset to evening), when I was there for Fisherman's Night the table in my sight is full book, just in case to secure your seat, because everyone love buffet dinner when on holidays.
