Located in the Potato Head complex, Katamama is a breathtaking, luxe, boutique hotel and has quite a different vibe to many of the other resorts we stay at. It is not specifically aimed at families and kids, however little guests are still made most welcome.
It is completely unique and uber stylish... no traditional lobby or reception area here, instead you are escorted straight to your room, where you “check-in” in the comfort of your room on an ipad with a cocktail in hand!
And that welcome cocktail is made in YOUR room, by YOUR own personal barman, in YOUR very own bar! Yep, each room has its own bar decked out with spirits, mixers, a selection of glasses, cocktail making paraphernalia, fresh limes, gourmet snacks and ice! These magnificent details were probably wasted on my little travellers, although they have now developed a taste for an evening Virgin Mojito (their mocktail of choice on arrival!).
Yummy eclairs, pretty flowers and handwritten notes are gifted on arrival, a jar of homemade cookies adorns the bar for afternoon munchies, and designer chocolates are delivered to the room each evening for a night-time sweet treat.
The divine swimming pool includes a shallow kids section and there as in extensive Kids Menu at Movida downstairs (where breakfast is served a la carte each morning for guests), and the staff at the Akademi bar are more than happy to mix up fancy mocktails for the little guests.
An added bonus for Katamama guests, is that you have VIP access to the front row daybeds at Potato Head. We thoroughly enjoyed swanning in at the busy sunset cocktail hour and making ourselves right at home in our prime position daybed. Potato Head is a fun spot for a sunset family drinks, some cool tunes, interesting people-watching (selfie stick central!), a splash in the pool and play on the sand out the front.
As a sweet and thoughtful parting gift, we were given little friendship bracelets that had been blessed by a priest at their onsite temple.
Terima kasih Katamama - we loved our little luxe escape with you. xx
