The resort, in which she is one of the three promoters, opened in April this year and, currently, that's the business she is focusing on.
With rooms starting at Rs 18,000 a night, it's positioned at the top end of the segment, but for competition, it has to contend with the venerable Orange County and the newly opened Vivanta by Taj.
But Shibulal, who also heads corporate strategy, is unfazed. For one, she believes Coorg is nowhere near being a saturated market, even with the new Vivanta. And the Tamara, she feels, will stand out because of the kind of service it offers.
"It's a place where you can unwind completely while at the same time having the option to do that one hour of work, just in case you need to," she says.
The resort has a five-star rating on popular travel portal Trip Advisor with many ecstatic comments by guests, but then so does the competition.
In her role, Shibulal looks after the direction the company will take, including acquisitions - the next resort they are working on will be in Kodaikanal, a hill station in Tamil Nadu, and another in Alappuzha, Kerala's backwater country, is also under consideration.
She says she also has to ensure every decision the company takes is in line with its philosophy of "sustainable good living", part of which meant getting more trees planted than were cut down during the construction of the resort, something attested to me earlier by a rival promoter.
