Before moving out of Gurgaon, I was looking for a quick break from the chaos of packing. Coincidently around the same time, we were invited by IBIS Gurgaon to celebrate their journey of 10 years in India. Hence staycation at IBIS Gurgaon happened.
IBIS Gurgaon is a short drive away from buzzing shopping malls, DLF Cyber Hub, and easily accessible from Delhi domestic/international airport. With rapid metro station next to the hotel, IBIS Gurgaon Golf Course Road is a very convenient base for all the travelers. It is one of the best economy hotels the city has to offer.
Over a decade IBIS Hotel has developed a practice that is designed to curate personalized experiences for each of their guests. IBISm is not a word; it’s a cultural movement placing people at the heart of everything. The ‘#ibism’ is all about fun and quirky approach to make you feel alive and at home. Whether it is the cool attire of the hotel staff or the incorporation of lively colors in the interior, it all radiates tons of positive vibes. After all, it is the celebration of 10 years. And the IBIS Hotel in Gurgaon was the first of its kind in India. Making the landmark occasion all the way more special for the property and its team.
The ‘ibism’ is all about personal touches, tied inextricably to the daily life of a city, which make every IBIS Hotel stand out amidst a sea of business hotels.
The rooms at the IBIS Hotel Gurgaon are comfortable and designed to make you feel at home. But little personal touches like a handwritten welcome note, fully loaded coffee station and a minibar say it all. There are in total of 214 rooms at IBIS Hotel Gurgaon. All rooms are 100% soundproof, and the big comfy beds make it difficult not to extend your sleeping hours.
But for me, the most impressive element of our staycation at IBIS was the tons of good food. The hotel has a multi-cuisine casual dining restaurant called – Spice It. And a relaxed lounge called – The Hub. If you are keen to explore Indian, Pan-Asian or Continental Cuisine then Spice It is your place. In case, you want to enjoy a drink or two with an array of delicious finger food then spend your evening at The Hub.
To give an ode to the ten years of IBISm, Chef Vibhav Verma curated a special menu to celebrate the 10 years of IBIS Gurgaon. The menu has some classic dishes served at the time of hotel launch a decade ago along with a few new fusion combinations like – Roti Tacos, Kadhi Chawal Bowl Meal and lot more. That’s not it! The biggest USP of Spice It is the longest running breakfast hours, i.e., from 4:00 am till noon. Can you believe it?
So in case, you have an early morning flight or hunger pangs at the wee hours land up at the restaurant and enjoy your breakfast buffet. And the buffet at Spice It will surely spoil you for choices. If you are a real food lover like us, then be prepared for a stage called food coma.
If you are staying at the hotel, then do not miss any of the meals at Spice It. Totally worth it!
IBIS Hotel perfectly caters to the needs of modern-day workaholics like us. There are multiple meetings rooms designed to suit your needs, free high-speed Wi-Fi access and a dedicated fun co-working space. Also, if you are keen to maintain your fitness regimes, then there is a fully equipped gym inside the hotel.
What else you need to call it a perfect staycation.
