Desa Potato Head is Bali’s 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 Potato Head Studios – a 168-room hotel designed by David Gianotten and the OMA team. More than a place to visit or stay, the Desa is intended to inspire creativity, balance and progress for the future.
After two years cut off from the world, Bali is finally welcoming back international travellers from 28 March 2022. Desa Potato Head is ready for its come-back, buzzing with life, ready to inspire and excite the dynamic community near and far.
Over the coming months Desa Potato head will see a continuous programme of innovative engagements alongside refocused attention on offerings launched last year.
Last year, the Desa debuted Potato Head Studios – the latest addition to Desa Potato Head, designed in partnership with David Gianotten at OMA, the Dutch practice founded by Rem Koolhaas. More than a place to stay, it is a creative center with spaces dedicated to sustainability, cultural immersion and the arts.
In November Desa Potato Head launched Sunset Park, a rooftop bar offering a Balinese rarity of oceanic views, open every Saturday for sunset magic hour with tropical takes on the classic Aperol Spritz complemented by a dynamic barbecue menu that changes weekly.
Tanaman, Desa Potato Head’s innovative and irresistible plant-based restaurant, began serving experimental dinners in January. Twice a month they open Tanaman’s Chef’s Table for an intimate eight-person dinner, a true adventure for those looking to experience something new and audacious on the island.
Sanctuary opened in February with the first-ever Sistrum waterbeds in Bali. This advanced wellness experience combines light, sound and vibration to connect individuals with their flow state and is a unique addition to Desa Potato Head’s offerings.
In April Ijen will launch a new menu based around healthy, local products that are cooked simply on a charcoal grill. And come June, guests can rediscover the carefully crafted design of Potato Head Suites, formerly Katamama, as it rejoins the Desa.
Potato Head is a creative playground with inspiring activities happening in every corner of the property. There’s energy activation and meditation under the rising sun, morning yoga for kids and adults, art installations made out of waste, sustainable workshops for all ages, jamu making, the curated library, listening lounge and co-working centre Studio Eksotika, and Headstream.
This onsite studio space and record store doubles as a digital streaming platform, designed to shine a light on voices, stories and sounds from Indonesia and around the world.
Finally, Desa Potato Head’s Headonism weekends of pure, multi-sensory indulgence continue to thrill guests monthly with complete immersion into the one-of-a-kind Potato Head lifestyle via experimental music sessions, sustainability workshops, ice baths and inventive sundowners, will be available for guests to book onto for the first time in 2022.
In line with Indonesia’s COVID policy, Desa Potato Head have acquired the necessary CHSE accreditation which allows guests to begin their so called ‘warm up holiday’ on-site, with access to all the usual amenities and experiences currently on offer whilst completing the 4-day mandatory pre booked hotel stay.
