        Two of us toured in Kerala with CHALUKYA GRACE TOURS and stayed at Our Land Island for two nights. We enjoyed a five-day trip from Cochin to Munnar and back to Allepey.
        The highlights of this were a visit to the spice garden and the tea-covered hills of Munnar.
        We had a very competent and safe driver.

        On a houseboat we explored the Backwaters, accompanied by a cook, a driver and a manager! The food was genuine Kerulen cuisine, fresh and delicious – both on the boat and also at the Our Land resort. We stayed in a renovated bungalow, had our meals brought to us on the porch overlooking the river and spent the time walking, watching river life: houseboats, people fishing and huge flocks of ducks being 'herded' down the river. Our host took us on a long walk around the rice fields and canals and organised a night boat ride down the river as a birthday present for my companion. This was stunning – so quiet and peaceful and also great views of village life. I can highly recommend CHALUKYA GRACE TOURS and their Our Land Resort.

        Room Tip: The houseboat bedroom was comfortable with an ensuite and AC. The rooms in the resort are newly renovated with a large ensuite, AC and great views of the river. The outside porch is a great place to relax. All rooms of good value - it is an island and all bungalows face the water.

        We stayed at Our Land for 2 nights at the end of our 2 week trip to Kerala. We stayed in the tree house which had a stunning view of the backwaters. It was so relaxing watching the water all day long and seeing the local people and house boats. We went on a walk organized by our land, and a boat trip around the smaller canals. The latter was such an incredible experience and one of the highlights of our holiday. Finally, the food was excellent - delivered to our balcony for each meal and really authentic Keralan.

        We arrived late afternoon with the Kollam-Allepey-ferry (beautiful 8-hours-trip), and were nicely left nearby Ourland resort, where a staffmember was waiting with a canoe, to bring us to our room.

        Activities: maybe I was a bit misled by the website, the offers are a bit optimistic. I intended to do as much as possible. In these 2 full days we went for a walk in the neighbourhood, together with the guide, the only englishspeaking staffmember (it should have been a birdwatching trip, but very few birds seen, though), a canoe- and a biketrip (alone) They were all very nice, but it's all in the same neighborhood... One evening, our guide took us to a templefestival in a nearby village, which was also nice to see.

        After all: sitting on the porch, reading a book (there is nothing else to do) with a view over the backwaters: very relaxing.
        In short: very nice, well kept, spacy A/C room, very nice bathroom, hot water 24/24. Nice wardrobe with place for hangers, without hangers...
        Staff: very helpfull, and very friendly.
        Food: could not be better!

        Downsides: Ourland wants to be "eco-friendly", but has no solarpanels. Could be very usefull to provide free hot water. Many powercuts: also here solarpanels could be considered, since there is no generator backup. No internet, which was unpractical, since I wanted to check my flight home, the day after..
        Also a fridge in the room would be nice: only a can of water was provided during daytime, nothing else. If you want something, you have to go to the office, and ask.
        After all: this is not a 500 Rs guesthouse, for the price I paid, I expected much more comfort.

        During our stay, they were working on some of the buildings. Therefore, some piles of sand and mud were stored right in front of our house, preventing a nice view over the water.
        The maintenance of the resorts greenery could be better.

        But all togethe:r we spend some nice days there.
