Staying at Our Land for three days in February was the highlight of our Kerala trip. It's a serene escape from the bustle of Indian cities; the cottages - overlooking the river - are spotless and comfortable, the food delicious and authentic, and the staff incredibly friendly and attentive. Ratheesh's enthusiasm is infectious; his early morning bird walk and evening... More

Our stay at Our Land Island Backwater Resort was spectacularly peaceful and simple. A time to rest, relax and watch nature just a few metres from the river. No car horns or blaring music, just the sounds of local wildlife and boat traffic on the river. We saw a variety of kingfishers and other wading and diving birds whilst sitting... More

We stayed for 2 nights in feb, a great place. A little bit out of allapuzha, kick back and slow down to the backwater pace of life. Do take advantage of the early morning walks and evening canoe trips, they are memories in the making. We left our land for a day on a houseboat. The houseboats are great but... More

Our late arrival at Our Land was mystical; a lantern-lit canoe carried us across the backwater to Our Land. The silence of the starry night was only broken by the gentle splashing of the dipping oars. Thoughtfully, Rateesh and his staff had prepared a late dinner to welcome us. This thoughtfulness with unstinting friendliness continued during our 4 night stay.... More

We stayed here at the end of our 6 week trip around south India and it was just the relaxing haven we needed after too many hot, dusty, hectic cities. You will need to phone ahead to book and to get directions (they'll talk to the auto rickshaw driver for you) as this is not the sort of place you... More

The staff are very friendly and this remote resort is extremely relaxed - incredible peace amidst the backwaters of Kerala. Lovely cool rooms and simple local food. The barn owls are wonderful too. The breakfast was especially delicious.

One of the highlights of our fourth visit to Kerala was the stay at Our Land and the family of Barn Owls that had been raised in a shelter on the roof of our bungalow. The simple country food was delicious, our room and shower room were fine and the views over the backwaters from our sitting area were magical.... More

After the noise and bustle of most Indian cities, this is a wonderful place to relax and just watch the water and birds. The staff are wonderful and the food is amazing. We had a sunset canoe ride and took bikes over to the path along the water to explore the local area, but what I remember most is just... More

Thanks to all the wonderful staff, so gentle, so warm; it feels like family there. The place offers simple comfort but less is more and this is your opportunity to check how true this adage is. You get out of there relaxed and vivified. No need for massages, oils, and herbs; just stay there a few days, enjoy and rejuvenate.

A lovely remote 'eco' island with clean accommodation. The staff were very friendly, food lovely and activities such as canoeing around the villlage and going on a birdwatching walk were good fun. The plans did suddenly change however - we were supposed to be doing a cycle trip but that changed into getting a commuter boat along the backwater. It... More

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
