Margo Utomo Agro Resort
It was in 1943 when the late Mr. H. R.M. Moestadjab the founder of Margo Utomo inherited piece of land in Kalibaru, Banyuwangi. He thereafter continue his father’s business in this land, where coconut, nutmeg, coffee, pepper and cloves are grown, not to forget the milking cows farm with only small number of cows at that time, the only farm in this region which provides nutrient food during difficult time.
1975, the market prices of all plantation products were falling down, which made it even tougher for him to manage the agro farm. He then came up with his brilliant idea to set and introduce a new tourism concept which we call now an Agro Resort. A perfect combination of tourism and plantation business, where people will enjoy the true living in the village like Kalibaru and also learn the wide varieties of plants and tropical flowers.
Started from his own house to welcome and host the guests he thereafter expanded up to 51 rooms and its called Margo Utomo Agro Resort. In 1994 he successfully opened a sister hotel located only 3 kms away called Margo Utomo Hill View Cottages, with a different concept of living.
He passed away in June 2000, buried in his beloving and memorable place, Kalibaru. His wife, Mrs. Hj. Sayati Moestadjab or more known as “Ibu Yati” together with their daughter Endang Mariana, continues the “treasure” which he left behind. Endang has successfully managed to expand the milking cows farm up to more than 100 cows, distributing fresh milk around banyuwangi and bali also producing other dairy items such as yoghurt and cheese.
