Katamama Bali: Sustainable Hotel Design
Katamama is a luxurious, architecturally savvy, sexy, romantic, breath-taking, and to top it off, sustainable, boutique hotel.
As soon as you land on the south tip of Bali at Denpasar airport you feel the humidity and embrace the smell of vacation. A 30-minute car ride leads you right into a small green pathway, away from the bustling streets of Seminyak and towards the tranquility of Katamama.
You’ll see the architectural composition immediately. 1.5 million hand-pressed Balinese bricks make up Katamama’s extraordinary facade. Instead of waiting at a reception, you are taken to your room where refreshments await, and the check-in is done within the comfort of your room.
Breathtaking views of the pool, Potato Head Beach Club and the ocean embellish the first and second floor suites. The garden suites are embraced by lush tropical greens, providing you with endless privacy. There is no better way than to relax than dipping your toes into the pool while sipping on some of the most creative cocktails we have ever tasted.
For those of us who care for some dancing, cross the bridge to the Potato Head Beach Club and enjoy the tunes of some of the islands’ most famous DJs. No matter what you are looking for – you will find it at Katamama.
Why we love it: Katamama doesn’t feel like a hotel – it feels like home away from home. From its unique check-in approach (there is no reception as such), to its friendly staff that all know your name. Also, we cannot forget – there is a bar in your room and an amazing mixologist on duty every night – cheers to that!
Other sustainability features: Katamama’s sustainability efforts range from art installations made out of recycled material, a plastic-free property to biodegradable soaps, and biodegradable mosquito spray. The rooms have AC, but it is automated – the AC shuts off when you are not in the room or when you open your windows.
Activities: Katamama is right by the famous Potato Head Beach Club, which makes the music lovers around us heart beat faster. You can also book a Balinese spa treatment, shop around Seminyak or take surfing lessons – everything can be organized directly with the friendly hotel staff.
Room price: Rooms start at around 200 EUR per night including breakfast. Prices range depending on season and availability.
