Accor has announced the opening of the 21st ibis hotel in India, the ibis Bengaluru Hebbal. ibis Bengaluru Hebbal is very similar to ibis Mumbai Vikhroli (which opened in October 2021), given that they both are built using the same design philosophy. Also, both of them are part of ibis’ New Generation Design hotels.
ibis Bengaluru Hebbal is strategically located opposite Manyata Tech Park, straddled between the IT Hubs of Outer Ring Road-Whitefield and the Bengaluru Airport. Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport as well as Bengaluru CBD area are both 30-minutes’ drive away from the hotel.
ibis Bengaluru Hebbal is in proximity to some popular tourist attractions and other places of interest in Bengaluru, which contains a healthy mix of metropolitanism and tradition. The city boasts of interesting historical monuments such as Tipu Sultan Palace and some of the most beautiful gardens like Cubbon Park and Lalbagh Botanical Garden, while the popular M.G. Road is only 12 km away. Transit from Bengaluru City Railway Station is only 13 kilometers away.
Drawing inspiration from the essence of the city, a local flavour has been specially curated for the rooms with custom destination wallpaper. The rooms depict various local elements such as Elephants, a tribute to the Mysore Dasara festival of Karnataka, Hase Chittara, a folk art form and an intricate wall painting traditionally created by the tribal women, The Mysore Palace, known for its impeccable roof art, tiles and intricate mosaics and paintings of the royal family and Bidri, a renowned metal handicraft that derives its name from Bidar and the design shows Bidriware techniques and style. Miaja, an Interior and architectural design firm from Singapore have built and designed the chic and lively public areas of the hotel, combining western aesthetics with elements of Indian folk art.
