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...

I had a wonderful stay at Our Land over a few days in August. The staff were friendly and super helpful and the food was some of the best I had in Kerala. Crossing the water by canoe to reach it makes it feel very special – like a real get away. I was travelling alone but its small size...

Had a memorable time in the resort, which is located on the canals of backwater. Enjoy the view of paddy fields as you travel through the approach road. A short trip on a canoe will get you to the resort. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Each bungalow has 2 rooms. Bungalows are away from each other ensuring privacy. All bungalows...

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
