Holiday Rental House
Besides having the only private WATER SLIDE in East Bali... what makes Katana Villa so special and different from other Villas in the area? It 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. The living room is partly open with fish pond...Besides having the only private WATER SLIDE in East Bali... what makes Katana Villa so special and different from other Villas in the area?

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. The living room is partly open with fish ponds on each side, mixing nature with a touch of funky elegance. To give you an idea, 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. Amed and this entire region is famous for the rooster fighting and killing pigs for the many ceremonies. Therefore the distant singing of roosters can be heard throughout the night and early morning, and pigs are everywhere. Perhaps amusing and delightful from a distance, but not living under your window! (smile). So we are happy to say that we DO NOT have this problem at Katana Villa! We have an agreeable arrangement with our adorable local neighbors to relocate their roosters and pigs. Since this deal was made, our nights at katana Villa are peaceful. From that same view through the Master Bath you can also see the Majestic Bangle mountains behind us and a few other Villas that belong to people from Belgium, England and America. Then from the front of the room you have a spacious deck overlooking the pool, land, and the sea. The beach is directly across the street from our driveway and we are waking distance to restaurants and shops. Outside of our walls, in front and at the side of the villa is the undeveloped Katana land... where you can take nature walks.. On each side of the main living area are two other bedroom bungalows (making a total of 3 bedrooms) each with king size beds, private decks and bathrooms with water spouts made from animal statues. Katana Villa is perfectly suited for families or small groups of friends. Comfortably sleeping 2 adults in each separate suite, with the exception of our family room which can sleep 2 -3 more with two king beds and a couch. Since this Villa is a private home that we sometimes open to the public, it also comes with pets. We do have animals living on the property. All of which have become a highlight for many animal lovers that visit. And 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. More

Interaction with guests
As the managing owner I will be the one contacting you through email and you will place your direct bookings with me. However, it is very seldom I am in Bali at the time you will be there as our guests since we only rent it out when we are traveling. Once you arrive to the villa you will be greeted by our fabulous staff. They will all be hosting you during your stay. However, I will always be available to you through emails and whats app to answer any of your questions.

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 and even bars and yoga centres now. It is a relaxing place, giving one a sense of real Bali with all of the local customs and ceremonies.... it also brings you back to nature ,... and never a lack of some pretty good restaurants. From the Villa many of our guests take tours to nearby sites. You can ask the staff about it . 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, and our manager also have a transport company . there are also many scooter rentals in town if you wish to rent a scooter.
