Are you traveling to Indonesia soon? If so, it might be a good idea to book a night or two at Greenhost Boutique Hotel. This unique lodging experience makes for a great base in Yogyakarta before heading out on your Borobudur sojourn. After all, there's no better way to pair your foreign experience with Mother Nature than living in an equally green hotel for a few days. Here are 7 reasons why you should book a stay:

1. The hotel makes use of natural light.

The communal spaces of Greenhost are designed to maximize natural light which is one of the main reasons why they are considered to be a green hotel. Their co-working space and veranda (they are converting it to a library soon!) are two spots that really showcase this feature—this is why a lot of artists book stays here during their residencies. Besides, who doesn't love a little sunlight?

2. They have an in-house restaurant bar. 

Do you enjoy having a lovely nightcap? Don't worry, you can easily find Agenda Resto & Bar at the topmost floor. As you enter, you'd be amazed by the wood-heavy interiors keeping in line with the modern industrial design of the hotel. There are also nights when Agenda becomes one of the most happening bars in town as they'd invite local acts and international DJs to play.

3. The ground floor of the hotel is a one-stop shop for amenities. 

The hotel has several spaces of interest on its ground floor alone—there you'll find their "creative sharing space" which functions as their co-working space, a gift shop that carries local artisan products, a small gym, a spa, an art space for exhibitions, their in-house restaurant Art Kitchen, and a stunning lap pool at the center of it all.

4. They have an in-house hydrophonic farm. 

The hotel takes pride in having their very own hydrophonic farm where their Art Kitchen Resto gets its food supply. Now, that's real farm-to-table freshness!


5. They have modern-industrial designer rooms. 

Each of the rooms has a modern industrial personality to it and furnished with either reclaimed wood or upcycled furniture. The rooms make use of natural light—the only difference lies in the placement of the windows. No need to worry, as wherever you stay, you are guaranteed a healthy dose of sunlight.

6. Art Kitchen Resto's menu is vegan-friendly. 

This semi-outdoor restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, high tea and dinner. While the menu offers fish, beef and chicken, there are a lot of options for those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet as well. The kitchen is staffed by locals who crafted the food offerings based on the local cuisine.

7. It's the first green-hotel in Indonesia.

Greenhost Boutique Hotel embodies everything green from design all the way to its cuisine. The no-door design of the hotel's lobby is the place where one can immediately appreciate the hotel's interior that is covered with aerial plants in one sweeping glance.
