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... More

Simply awesome resort... Excellent location and view... It's located away form the crowd. The approach is through a boat so feel different up on arrival itself. Food is excellent. Mr. Ratheesh and his team were too good in service. Enjoyed a lot.....would definitely stay here again......

Set in a rustic background helped us rejuvenate with the abundance of greenery and the placid lake to feast on.

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
