What makes Katana Villa so special and different from other Villas in Bali besides the spectacular double level pool and water slide ? This Villa was designed and built as a private home without the intention to ever rent it out - therefore it is not cookie cutter and has the unique flair and personality of the owner. You do not have the feeling that you are in a hotel when you are at Katana Villa! Each room is designed differently with personal items from around the world giving the Villa and grounds a very special energy -- perhaps partly because the owner brought Roman Stones in from France and embedded them as part of the steps you walk on! We have a full kitchen, a gym and a hand carved gazebo that can be used for massage or relaxation.

We have a full kitchen, a gym and a hand carved gazebo that can be used for massage or relaxation. The living room is partly open with fish ponds on each side, mixing nature with a touch of funky elegance. Some people think of Katana Villa as a 'Fred Flintstone house', others call it a 'Robinson Crusoe experience,' and some believe it has a spiritual healing energy that grows every year since it was realized. We now have a local family living behind the Villa so you can have a bird's eye view of how Balinese local life is as you look through the back window from the Master bathroom. You will have views from the property to the Majestic Bangle mountains and the Bali sea. The beach is directly across the street from our driveway and we are waking distance to restaurants and shops. There are three bedroom bungalows situated around the pool, each with their own private decks and bathrooms. Katana Villa is perfect for families or small groups. Comfortably sleeping 6-8 adults Since this Villa is a private home when not open to the public, it comes with pets living on the property. All of which have become a highlight for many animal lovers that visit. We currently have 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 turtles and a luwak. Although we did not build the Villa in a child proofed way...we do welcome children of all ages. Katana Villa has become the delight of hundreds of children from around the world that fall in love with our waterslide and hidden pool cave.

Unique design – lots of antique furniture, drawings and décor (unlike many other villas in Bali)
I and my wife spent part of our honeymoon at Katana Villa, it was the most amazing time spent in Bali, the views alone worth 5 stars! The place is on the hill with an amazing picturesque view. The grounds are incredible, private pool with a view of the jungle & mountains where you can relax in peace. It's a perfect place for pretty much any gathering. Villa Katana is spacious and full of art! There are 3 houses so it can be an option for a family holiday or meditation retreat where privacy is needed. Big lounge area to chill out, enjoy chat & dinner or jump to the pool with little pool tunnel/cave & waterslide!!! There is also a gym that I went ones . If you like art, design and beautiful furniture this place is for you. Unique interior & exterior of the villa every detail is beautifully, artistically, and uniquely created. Private stone bath is situated under cover whilst being outside, which means you can enjoy the outdoors whilst relaxing. You will have a delicious meal prepared for you weather its breakfast lunch or dinner. I and one member of staff went to a local fisherman and purchased a big fresh tuna fish that was later served for a dinner. And if you are a fan of local traditional food, you’re lucky as the chef is very good and will try to adjust to your needs if you have any. The staff at Katana Villa are attentive, friendly and genuine. If you wish, fresh coconuts will be ready for you every morning, your laundry will be taken care off, the motorbike is there for you to use any time. This place is highly recommended for anyone looking for a unique experience surrounded by natural beauty. Lovely people Leslie & Matthias owners of the Villa who will do their best to make sure your stay is pleasant and everything is taking care of. We look forward to our return!

A highly recommended gem!
We stayed at Katana villa during uneasy COVID period and thus want to express endless gratitude to Leslie and Matthias, who made our stay so much home-like. The villa is incredible: - 3 houses (can sleep up to 8 people, master bedroom is amazing) - Pool with a slide and secret grotto - Spacious lounge with kitchen - Gym - Unique design – lots of antique furniture, drawings and décor (unlike many other villas in Bali) - Huge space around the pool, lots of blossoming frangipani trees around - Attentive staff ready to help you with whatever you need, any meals on demand - Amazing view: sea, palms and sunrise - Perfect location: 30 min drive to Lempuyang, bit longer to Batur, lots of beaches around (pity that they were closed due to Corona time) - Fishes and turtles in the ponds, sometimes a beautiful parrot visiting - and many more Cannot really think of any drawbacks, as all our wishes were taken care of immediately. This is a highly recommended gem, I will definitely come back. Leslie and Matthias, many thanks again!

If you want to have an relaxing and wonderful stay in Bali you have to stay here
My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 days at this great place at the end of our vacation. We spent a lot of time in and around the awesome pool where we enjoyed our privacy. Also the employees are very very nice and helped us to make the stay as comfortable as possible. Also everything is in good repair and we notice so many pretty details on the property that made Katana Villa so unique. We couldn't imagine an better place for the end of our vacation.

Certainly a home away from home! 👍
We visited Katana as part of our honeymoon, and it certainly is a home away from home. A unique property which would be hard to come by elsewhere. From getting picked up at the airport to leaving the villa the staff Leslie has looking after her home are fantastic, we wish we had more space in our luggage so we could take them all back to the UK with us! We can here on honeymoon so had a lot of space and the villa to ourselves, a special thank you to Wayan and his family, they work so hard and are always on hand to give advice and suggestions. Our stay was just for 6 nights and we didn't really do much apart from relax at the villa and one day took a long car ride to Bali Zoo. There's plenty of nice restaurants close by and many will pick you up and drop you off for no extra charge. Note here that we recommend this as the villa is up a VERY steep slope which isn't lit all at night. We walked one night and didn't have a torch/phone light and struggled to see anything. Overall we would highly recommend the villa. It's a unique place with some of the most friendly staff we've ever met. It's been a pleasure! Eddie & Louise (.U.K.)

Paradise for the kids !!!!!
and if the kids are happy the parents also !!!!! We made a round in Bali for 5 weeks this summer in 6 difference places, and at the end when we have asked our kids : where do you want to go back the answer was one word : KATANA !!!!! Ane where we put picture of the villa of social network friends were asking in which attraction park we were ... no no attraction park just villa katana Here everything is made to create the best memory to your kids : the amazing swimming pool, we stayed there 10 days and they never had enough of jumping, sliding, swimming ... so gorgeous !!!! The animals : our friend the perrot, the cat, the monkey, the turtles .... so nice !!! Just perhaps our friend the frogs were a little bit noisy at night .... but the team organised a safari to pick up them and throw them in the river ... so nice !!!!! But if Katana is a paradise for kids, it's also one for the parents : fantastic food (pancake at the breakfast just incredible), fresh orange juice .... everything they could do to make you happy was done, very funny furniture that makes it special ... you see this house was made with passion and not to be rent ... and this passion you feel it even before your travel with the fantastic contact i had with Leslie, the owner. Such a nice, positive, helpful and friendly person .... i can only say that the house reflects the personality of the owner ... Thank to all for the fantastic memories you offered us !

Just beautiful
You will fall in love. If it is with the people, the food, the landscape, the beautiful villa with the amazing detail and feel-at-home-vibe or one of the incredibly cute animals living on the property. We have been travelling asia for just over 2 months before we visited katana and the villa togerher with the surrounding region of amed is definetly up there at the top. Far away from kuta (where we stayed before), its loudness and tourists, amed feels like a different world. You can see more of the real indonesia and so many besutiful hotspots (if you get on one of the scooters or just book a trip through the staff) which are in eastern bali, such as beautiful temples, like the "mother temple" in besakih or the mount agung. You can also go diving at the huge 100m large shipwreck just off the coast or decide to snorkel at a smaller one. Snorkelling is a must do in general as amed has a lot of corals and way different underwater landscape than any we have seen before. Also if you have any questions, uncertainties or needs, the incredible staff or the owner Leslie will help you as fast and as good as they can! And if you dont feel like going out you can easily enjoy the villa by itself for days without getting bored as there is always something to discover or ne of the animals to keep you engaged. If we have the chance to come back there is no doubt we will!

About the neighbourhood
We are in the village of Bunutan, which is just south of Amed, and also known as the Amed region. Amed region is world famous for diving and beautiful coral reefs with 2 ship wrecks to explore. We have plenty of restaurants, dive shops, food stores, bars and yoga centers. It is a relaxing area, giving a sense of real Bali with all of the local customs and ceremonies. From the Villa many of our guests take tours to nearby sites. We are also located by the speed boats that can take you to Gili Islands.
Getting around
We have a driver living on the property that can be hired, there are also many scooter rentals in town if you wish to rent a scooter.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
We like to suggest using a driver to get to Katana Villa. We have two wonderful professional drivers that work for the Villa and have their own transport company on the side. I will put you in direct contact if you wish to hire them. Otherwise, if you decide to drive yourself, you can find Katana Villa on Google maps.
