In the heart of Petitenget and next to W Hotel, you will find Potato Head. The perfect place to chill, with the perfect view over the Indian Ocean.

We always “check in” at Potato Head when we are in Bali. There is just something about the atmosphere. The music. The staff who work there, and the food and drinks they serve. The infinity pool. And off course, the whole architectural design.

Come early

That’s probably why Potato Head is always very crowded. Come early if you want to secure a nice bed with by the pool. If you come late, put your self on their waiting list, and then scout the lawn for a place to lay down.

This is what you want, but is difficult to get. You better come early if you want to lay down here.

 

Are you traveling as a group, and want to enjoy the full day at Potato Head, you must be there before it opens. Get in line, and have an idea of where you want to stay together.

Once they open, you will go through a fantastic corridor, before Potato Head opens itself to you.

Magnificent view towards the Indian Ocean.

If you can’t find a place to lay down, you can always enjoy the sofas surrounding the entrance to the restaurants and bars. From here you can also scout for a place to lay on the lawn.

If you want to take a break from the sun, the restaurant and bars are very nicely designed. Potato Head is a place where you quickly feels like your at home (at least almost)…

Go for a dip in the pool. Gets more and more crowded as the day goes by.

Potato Head is always very busy. Once you are set, either in a sofa bed or on the grass (if you did not show up early to secure a bed), the service is impeccable.

Everyone wants to enjoy the sunset from the pool — with a drink…

 

 

Walk to Potato Head from the beach

There is no problem accessing Potato Head from the beach. During our stay at Victoria Villas in Batu Belig, we took the short walk by the beach. Make a small stop in Watercress Cafe to pick up something good to drink on your way. And after the sunset, when the party was about to start, we walked back home again, by the beach.

In 2014, when we stayed at Hu’u Villas, we just took the short walk from the street. Taking a taxi from Anantara Seminyak will take you approximately 20 minutes, due to the heavy traffic.

Read more about Potato Head on their website. Even though you are not able to book a bed, you can always book a table in the restaurant in advance.
