Potato Head Studios, the latest addition to Desa Potato Head, has reopened its doors to the public. More than a place to stay, it’s a creative centre with spaces dedicated to sustainability, cultural immersion, and the arts. Potato Head Studios is the crown jewel of the Desa, 10 years in the making, designed to re-shape how people experience hospitality.
Every experience on offer at Potato Head Studios has been carefully crafted by the community, for the community. Among them are sustainability workshops for adults and children at Sustainism Lab, Potato Head’s own streaming station, Headstream, and Studio Eksotika, a curated library, listening lounge and co-working centre on the mezzanine floor.
The entire building is fitted out with local, sustainable materials, as well as art pieces, ceramics, textiles and basketry from small-scale makers on the island. They wrap around a vast creative courtyard that leads to an amphitheatre for modern and traditional arts, a palm-lined swimming pool and, eventually, the sand, surf and sensational sunsets of Petitenget Beach.
Other guest activities range from beach cleaning to Balinese prayers, morning yoga, in-room IV treatments, access to the gym and workshops at Sustainism Lab and the new regenerative farming workshop, Sweet Potato Project, which was created during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those looking for a further tune-out can hit the spa or dive into the culinary offerings of the Beach Club, Pizza Garden as well as Kaum, Ijen and Tanaman Restaurants.
Health and safety have been taken into careful consideration for all visitors to the Desa. There’s a doctor on call 24/7, PCR tests can be conducted in-house and brand-new hygiene and sanitation protocols designed in line with the latest WHO recommendations are in place for staff and guests alike.
