Weigh The Waste – An IBNII Initiative Over one third …
Indulging in a luxurious retreat at a resort is akin to basking in a heavenly oasis. I had the pleasure of relishing such an experience recently, and it was a remarkable sojourn.
As I strolled through the ornate lobby, my eyes were awash with the splendor of the decor. The rich tapestries, elegant furnishings, and lavish floral arrangements were a sight to behold. The aroma of exotic fragrances wafted through the air, immersing me in an ambiance of opulence.
As I was escorted to my room, I was greeted by a magnificent vista of the lush, verdant surroundings. The room itself was a study in refined luxury, replete with plush furnishings, intricate artwork, and sumptuous linens. The high-end amenities, such as the state-of-the-art entertainment system and spa-grade toiletries, were the proverbial cherry on Whether it was lounging by the pristine pool or indulging in a therapeutic massage at the world-class spa, every moment was a sublime experience.
The culinary offerings were an exquisite treat for the senses, with each dish a masterpiece of flavor and presentation. The expert chefs seamlessly blended global influences with local ingredients, resulting in a culinary symphony that was nothing short of sublime.
Every aspect of the resort experience was attended to with a keen attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to excellence. It was a luxurious escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and one that I will cherish for years to come.
If there was a 100 star rating, I would definitely give that to IBNII.
I'm not someone who gives reviews to places, but for IBNII, I really want to put some time and portray my experience.
The minute you enter IBNII, you will notice 3 things, absolutely organized and all are very professional and the 3rd most important thing would be ECO Friendly. When we booked, the only thing we knew was, we must pay for the waste we leave on our food plates, but little did we know IBNII is a small world on its own, where the entire nature, can sustain peacefully with different kinds of plants, birds and animals.
We spent only 4 hours initially and we realized the place is great and immediately made 2 more bookings for my parents and my sister and brother in law. The staff are plenty and absolutely professional and maintain the surroundings very clean. Only electric cars allowed and we could use the bicycles everywhere was one of our joy.
We loved the room, it was just perfect! Although we were there to celebrate our anniversary together, it really felt like our honeymoon! Food was great! My husband and my sister are vegan and the kitchen team ensured to accommodate them with variety of vegan food. And delicious!
We truly enjoyed the forest, the vegetation, the getaway from city life and the concept of the owner himself and his intensions to keep nature as is. The recycle and reuse of water and the garbage system really impressed us. Great place, great management. We loved the hospitality, true form of nature.
Very excited for another trip in near future! Thank you Team, great place!!
Just exited from the property and I have only good things to say about this place.
Firstly, the staffs are so well mannered, very courteous. The people running this have done a wonderful job. The tremendous focus on tiniest details such as on the food preparation (all cooked/baked in house, no sugar use but delish dessert), preserving the nature in its true form and no use of pesticide or any artificial chemicals to beautify the place (not that it is required). Absolutely beautiful, peaceful ambience and healthy + delish food like a perfect combination for the vacation. Had the best time. ❤️
Ps: Their hot chocolate drink to die for. You must try!
Firstly the team in IBNI is excellent right from front gate security till the top management. Rooms well maintained and clean. Food excellent with home made taste with well defined cuisine.
The buggy service excellent initiative and well taken care for elderly guest.
Though the price is high, quality is made us feel the right choice.
Once suggestion for improvement - daily refreshment with cookies in the room would be appreciated.
Vacation with Family was made memorable with great service and clean property
We visited Ibni in Nov' 2022 for my n sons birthday. We booked the room with temperature controlled private pool. The room was large, the largest we have stayed in so far with fully furnished living area with a dining counter and coffee station. The bed was really large that 4 adults can sleep on it. This was a huge surprise, have never seen such a large bed even in 5 star hotels. There was sufficient storage and all standard amenities provided. A separate toilet with sink and mirrors was available in the living area so that when bathroom is in use, others can use this. The main bathroom opens to the pool, so it's convenient access without wetting the entire room. A wonderful jacuzzi was available in the large bathroom that had a huge vanity and shower cubicle. The most impressive thing for me personally was the availability of electric heating rods in the bathroom to dry off the wet clothes. Haven't seen this in the best of hotels. Extremely thoughtful feature. The pool is well maintained and being temperature controlled really help as Nov is cold in coorg.
The property was beautiful, serene and rejuvenating. Lots of birds, coffee plants, huge trees and fresh air.
The food had a home cooked feeling, light on the stomach, packed with flavors and good variety. All three meals are buffet style and included with the room rent, which is also unheard of in our travel experience so far. The hotel has a policy of minimizing food wastage. For every 100gm of food wasted you will be charged Rs. 100. This is very thoughtful and encourages guests to be mindful. They also consciously avoid maida and sugar. Jaggery and wheat are generously used and flavor is amazing. Even jalebis were dipped in jaggery syrup, tasted better than sugar syrup. Drizzling melted jaggery syrup into coffee makes an amazing start to the morning. Even the cake ordered for my sons birthday was made with jaggery, dry fruits, butter and was the best. Size was perfect. Mindful enough to not waste!
They have activities like nature walk, baking cookies, coffee tour etc. Which give you something to do.
Staff, managers are all friendly, warm and go over and beyond and make you feel at home.
The spa is tastefully constructed giving you the experience of being in another world. The messages are very relaxing. I feel slightly overpriced, however, one can indulge occasionally on a vacation.
This place is driven by the culture of sustainability and walking is definitely encouraged. You can get electric buggies but can involve some wait time if they are busy.
Overall, a great example of mindful living with luxury. Certainly must visit!
We had a trip to The Ibnii in month of September and it was really pleasant experience. We weren’t expecting an easy trip with a 4 month old baby and a picky eater toddler but The Ibnii team made it really easy for us. They provided a stroller for our baby and helped us with customized food for our toddler. Food is really good and healthy unlike other resorts. The entire team is very friendly and caring that makes you feel at home. We opted for pool villa and it was awesome. They’re maintaining the resort in a restorative way. And the entire resort area is really beautiful.

Firstly, I have to say thank you to The Ibnii people. It was really a great service from their end. We had booked a Pool villa which is dubbed as Kopiluwak Premium over MMT for an amount of 47,700/- (which has a Jacuzzi). The receptionist and the people over there, welcomed us with a welcome drink (some jaggery ayurvedic tea) & kadubu. We saw the mesmerising view from the reception. It is more than 20 meters high from the river there. We were later taken to the dining area to have lunch and then back to room. One mistake we did was, we thought we could walk the road to our villa (from restaurant) and we didn't ask for a buggy (you can call reception to book a buggy & wait less than 10 mins for its arrival)! Please remember that the place has good steep. We may need to wear a sports shoes and be healthy to walk around. Since we didn't have any comfort wears for our feet, it was a tiring and had few bruises on our feet. Once we got into the room, it was darn huge. There was a big pool and there was a decent Jacuzzi inside the villa. Everything was so neatly done. Room was really clean and they had done wonderful job in maintaining it. We were given with some snacks in the villa. Also the washroom/bathroom were very neat. One good thing about the bathing room was it had continuous supply of hot water, 24/7. However, the shower cubicle was small to accommodate one person rightly. Coming for Jacuzzi, you need to wait till water has filled over the nozzle end of the Jacuzzi and then switch it on. It was a wonderful experience! The entire place over there is so beautiful, amidst in the forest, no one can complain about anything. The place is huge and also people are really good. Evening snacks are limited in our meal plan, however one can pay for the extra snacks. We had pizza and others. The pricing is above decent, but the quality is good. We were really taken a good care by the people over there and particularly Mr Joy was a man indeed who was decent and serviced us politely with always a smile. Food items are limited especially veg. However, even non-veg were scarce there, afaik. Desserts were present and it was a self service scheme. Below the restaurant, one can see the bar where you can have any drink of your choice. Just beside that you have a in-door play area like snooker & foosball.
The pool was huge and was covering 1/4th of the space. We had fun in the pool though the water was darn cold. They are not heated pool. But one can enjoy the view and swim around in the noon to sway away your tiredness. Privacy is bit of a concern, we often saw the gardeners/others moving around and were able to see the pool at least some portion.
Reaching the resort is little tricky since it comes near a curve, hence be careful of the vehicle ahead or behind you. If you are traveling from Mysore to Coorg, it will be on the right side. There, ain't any big signboard or billboard to let you know. If google says if you have arrived at the destination, just look at your right side.
The place is really good if you'd wanna spend 2N or 3N!
You would get BSNL/Airtel/Jio network without any hassle. They also provide you with WiFi, however, the WiFi speed isn't up to the mark.

I stayed there for 3 days and got to experience the natural beauty of Coorg without stepping out of the property. If you want to treat yourself with luxury, you won't be dissapoointed here. They have lot of activities aimed towards sustainable living and fun hobby activities like cookie baking etc. Must try traditional Coorg cuisine at the Fig restaurant they have. I had great time watching natural beauty all around and would keep it in my heart forever.
We booked a Kopiluwak cottage for our honeymoon. We knew we were going to a special place seeing the pictures, videos and reviews. But this place FAAAR exceeded our expectations and how!
Everything from the massive forested property, maintained beautifully, to the outstanding hospitality we received from everyone, starting from Priti at the front desk to Rahul, driving us around on his buggy to Muthappa Sir who turned out to be quite the entertaining person to have long chats with. Everyone here greets you with a warm smile, always asking if you need something. The Kaldi Kappi, their coffee shop is the stuff of dreams, with an awe-inspiring backdrop and a beautiful, serene pond right in front.
The room itself is massive (800 Sq.Ft!) with all the amenities you would possibly require. The pool and hot-tub, along with the view of the forest does not make you want to leave your room at all.
But then, they have the kind of food they offer in their 2 restaurants that you just cannot stay away from. Dear God, the food was the best we've ever had in our lives! The Fig, which is their multicuisine restaurant and Baalele which is their Coorg cuisine Veg restaurant. Unbelievable food. What variety! Everything is cooked with low-salt, low-maida, NO SUGAR (jaggery is used in all desserts).
I could go on and on about this place and still not do it justice.
This is the place you will keep dreaming about once you leave. Cannot wait to get back here.
Priti, Rahul and the entire team, Juilee and I are missing y'all! Thank you very much for doing what you did for us and making our stay memorable.
It's a very pleasant place in nature's lap. The morning and the evening both are equally beutiful, the rooms are luxurious with a very prompt hardworking staff maintaining them. Everything was upto the mark. The food was also very pleasant 🥳🥳
Cottages with individual pools are awesome. Feel the forest within the inner self. Silent path ways of cycling and buggy. Unforgettable hot showers after the pooling and the hygiene they keep. Nice food with live kitchen they serve
We had amazing time at Ibnii. It was a perfect nature resort for our honeymoon getaway. We had a late check-in and staff was very accommodating. Our rooms were always clean and comfortable- thanks to housekeeping staff Saheb and Veena. Dining was exceptional, and dining staff was also great, especially Abhishekh. Spa is also a big plus if you’re looking for relaxation. Ibnii offers everything you need, and we had a blast!
