We had a great time here, just relaxing, reading, going out in the canoes and eating! The rooms are spacious to say the least, clean and comfortable. No where to hang clothes but who cares in a place like this? The staff were just great and played cricket with the children. There is the opportunity to have various massages, I...

My wife and I stayed three wonderful nights at Our Land. I was slightly trepidatious about the resort having read some recent negative reviews. Having stayed I have come to the conclusion that it is the title of a resort that engenders negative comments. I know my impression of a resort is a hotel with international standard facilities like Citrus...

We stayed 24 hours at Ourland in the elevated tree house. It was just perfect for what we were after - a bit of relaxation after a night on the backwaters. The host was incredibly accommodating, arranging for an evening canoe trip on the water and a morning walk around the village looking at the huge array of birds. The...

As you arrive at the riverbank you realise that Our Land is indeed an island, a rather small one, and that you have booked to stay there for two whole days, and you'd better enjoy watching the passing rice boats or arrange an escape because in truth there isn't really enough to do here for more than a night. You...

You feel a little stuck on this island - three acres of backwater jungle alive with mozzies and tree leeches - and once there you need a boat to get off. The staff are very nice and try very hard and the morning walk they do is wellworth it for seeing the backwater villages and the birdlife which is fantastic....

While on first site idyllic in setting, I was kept waiting 3 hours after appointed arrival time to get my room as my reservation could not be found; then asked to move the following day to another room to make space for a family with small children which was not the case. No apologies were forthcoming for the inconveniences. This...

We opted for two nights here with our 23 year old son in lieu of a houseboat trip and were very glad we did. Instead of the parking lot of boats moored together at night, or the smell of their diesel engines, we had simplicity, a marvelous morning walk along the dirt track that abuts the canals and rice fields...

We stayed here for 3 nights. It is a small island on a busy backwater route. We stayed in a normal cottage and then a night in the treehouse. The treehouse is amazing. We spent all our time sitting outside watching the boats and the river, though at night it was tough because of insects. We did an evening canoe...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
