Griya Patria Guesthouse

The word “griya” means “home” or “residential building” in Indonesian. With this definition, we manage Griya Patria with comfortable, homey concept on its structure and ambiance. The Griya Patria complex sets on a land of approximately 10,000 square meters owned by Mr. Wiratno Poespoatmodjo’s kinship. The private complex has 5 buildings, in which 2 are used for accommodation services and events venue (meetings, gatherings, retreats, book launches, weddings, etc), 2 are currently available for rent of office use, and 1 is rented by a swimming school. The main building of Griya Patria was built in early 1974 by the late Brigadier General Mr. Wiratno Poespoatmodjo, SH as a residence. On September 4, 1999, Griya Patria was officially established by Mr. Wiratno and inaugurated by the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture at the time, Mr. Marzuki Usman. Since then, several renovations have been accomplished to renew the property complex.

Mr. Wiratno along with his former-lady-combatant wife, the late Mrs. Maria Soemari Soeryo had been instrumental in efforts to bring forth high-school graduates in the field of Tourism. In those efforts, Griya Patria was then developed as one of the supporting facilities for the neighboring Tourism Vocational High School (SMIP) Patria Wisata and the Tourism Academy Patria Indonesia. The two educational institutes, also established by Mr. and Mrs. Wiratno are managed by Mr. Wiratno’s 2nd and 3rd family generation. The accommodation buildings, housing 21 rooms, 2 swimming pools, 2 small meeting rooms, and a Joglo house operating as an event venue, are regularly used for various practical classes and examinations for the tourism high school, Patria Wisata. Each year, students take advantage of the rooms, kitchen, and front office facilities at Griya Patria to fulfill their practical examination credits.

Thinking forward towards a business venture, the family decided to operate Griya Patria as a lodging facility open for public in October 2004. With facilities similar to a three-star hotel, Griya Patria is ready to provide you memorable experience at our classic-Javanese-home residence.
