Unsustainable practices in the name of development have threatened the ecosystem of the Western Ghats to such an extent that only 2% of it remains untouched. This has led to an increase of natural disasters such as landslides, flooding, and much more, resulting in loss of life and property. The concept of Ibnii focuses on sustainable development, and as a result, we have adopted certain measures to arrest the wastage of resources. We have installed one of a kind ‘Low Flow Plumbing Fixtures’ that dispenses mist and saves water. Optimal use of water is of paramount importance, hence the jacuzzis in our property operate only for only 6 months in a year. Our rainwater harvesting system, along with our Water Treatment Plant, Sewage Treatment Plant, and Effluent Treatment Plant, collectively make the water management at Ibnii par excellence. We have 4 rainwater catchments, the water is treated and is used throughout the resort. The water you drink, the water out of the taps, the water used to cook food are the purest form of water, rainwater. Our vast water catchment areas use rainwater not just to run the resort, but also to sustain the coffee plantation.
IBNII Has Two Water Treatment Plants:
- Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) which takes used water from our laundry service and
usable water for plants.
- Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) which takes all sewage water and treats it, to be used for our plantation.
We also have a bottling plant where all the glass bottles are sanitised, filled and served to guests in their rooms, the restaurant and coffee shop.
