Greenhost Boutique Hotel in Yogyakarta is unconventional, pared-down, low-key and understated. The owner and designer of the hotel, Bapak Paulus Mintarga, makes recycling and sustainable lifestyle sexy. He employs upcycled materials in clever and useful ways throughout the hotel. The property is also home to a creative hydroponic farm on its rooftop that cultivates salads that are supplied to the hotel’s restaurant, including plants like mint, basil and betel leaf to be grown along the corridor, further making it unique and never-seen-before.
The hotel shares the story on how to lead a sustainable lifestyle but at the same time committed towards maintaining high service standards. It is also the place where sustainability meets art because it showcases artworks by aspiring Indonesian artists. The whole existence of the hotel reminds us to always consider how our consumption and actions directly impact Mother Earth.
The hotel attracts guests who want to be themselves and those who are in need of privacy amidst sustainable sophistication. Due to the hotel’s unique proposition, it appeals to people who are educated, mindful, respectful towards nature, and ecologically-savvy. High profile figures, especially those from the entertainment industry, prefer to stay at Greenhost Boutique Hotel because the place embodies stylishness and urban sustainability, yet unpretentious and fuss-free.
