O'land Plantation is place where you can surrender to the majesty of nature, and that’s just what we did. Our days were filled with navigating through the estate pathways, running up and down to the main estate house/dining area, digging into books while soaking the sun in the porch area, checking out friendly guests (cats, dogs, bisons, and lots of birds).
The food and hospitality was excellent. The manager, Murali, is a very courteous man and ensures all fair demands and expectations of the visitors are met. This was quite a first for us as we often do not get such a personal attention and warm treatment in nature resorts. Food was quite good as I mentioned, there were limited items prepared in keeping with the volume of visitors but everything tasted fresh and delicious. I can especially recall the countless bowls of Rasam we dug into to ward off the slight cold that settled in thanks to the chilly air.
We also did a small estate trek (2-3 hrs) which took us to some astonishing views of little streams, meadows, butterflies, a small temple by the pond, and made us get a larger sense of the unique landscape we were in.
