Well after reading all the reviews we were so excited about staying here. Yes the locations is lovely and being picked up by canoe was a nice too, however, the place overall was incredibly disappointing. Starting with a positive, we had a lovely treehouse over looking the lake. The room was spacious but the bed sheets although clean, had stains...

We stayed here recently for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Based on a 6 acre island, access is via a canoe that is there to greet you. Our accommodation is built on four trees which act as stilts and the balcony offers a great view down the river. Ratheesh the manager takes visitors on walks where you can observe...

Unforgettable: the sun rising on the palm-fringed landscape, perfectly calm except for riotous birdsong and a few riverboats. Well-designed bungalows (or a treehouse!) to relax in, delicious food, (plentiful, fresh and locally sourced), good coffee, guided birdwatching walks and canoe trips, and a new open hall for yoga groups. This environmentally-aware project embedded for the last twenty years in the...

As by my title you would come to know that we had booked our houseboat, it was for one night stay and specially it was for my birthday I wanted to be spend the whole day over here. It was a wonderful experience the boat, green water, blooming sky, shady sunset, all over coconut trees, lushgreen rice fields, ripples in...

It was nice stay where the beauty of the backwaters mesmerized us. The houseboat was very clean and the staff were also very courteous. We travelled in a one room houseboat where the complete boat was to ourselves only. Before we entered the houseboat we had a notion that the houseboat can be boring and irritating due to insects but...

Ourland was by far one of the best places I have stayed in, in recent times. Do not go here with the expectation of polished Italian marble floors, manicured lawns, Butlers in shiny suits or Infinity pools with Jacuzzis. We were happy to experience better things such as being close to beautiful mother nature without disturbances of Wifi networks and...

Booked last minute to get away from another hotel and so glad I did! Getting a canoe to the island is a great way to start your stay! Room was lovely and clean, bathroom huge and a super verandah to laze away the day watching the Houseboats chug up and down. For me, the food was some of the best...

Not knowing what to expect - we arrive at the docking pick-up point with a twinge of apprehensive anticipation. A motorised gondola manoeuvred by a friendly older man picks us up - us and our luggage - to bring us to "our island". The island is small. Some will feel it is too isolated and too confined as there is...

Ourland Island Backwater Resort is the Winner of First ever Kerala State Tourism Award (announced AUG 2015) for the Best Practices in the field of Responsible Tourism.. Every once in a while, when the hectic pace of city life overwhelms you and the chaos of the urban crush threatens to consume you, it's always wise to retreat into some much-needed solitude. Tucked away in the backwaters of Kerala is Our Land, a panacea for the soul. An island getaway from the rigmarole of daily life, Our Land sits in an island of tranquility to the south of Alappuzha, surrounded by green paddy fields fringed with coconut palm, bamboos and banana trees that stretch as far as the eye can see. In the lap of nature, Our Land has stayed true to its roots and blends in perfectly with the rustic landscape that surrounds it for miles. The resort's modern amenities unobtrusively attend to the comforts of guests and do not compromise on the hotel's natural ambiance and pursuit to ensure that its carbon footprint on the environment is minimized. Our Land invites guests and divulges secrets - this hideaway island was a one-time den of a fierce bandit immortalized by the locals as a Robin Hood! During your stay here you can unravel the secrets of this one-time bandit hideaway and ensconce yourself in its warm and welcoming world.Hearty welcome to Our Land... ... more   less
