Good stay!!!We stayed for 3 nights at OurLand. Lovely nature trail, orientation of the resort, the various natural products they use and follow green environmental practices. A great stay, lovely food and service with a smile. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this resort.

We had also heard about the impact the houseboats have on the local environment, and were looking for an alternative, when we came across OurLand. It seems to provide a unique experience of this beautiful and tranquil area, and gave us...

Our stay at Ourland was probably the highlight of our trip to India and it was really up against some fierce competition. We were met at the station and the resort kindly found some space for our friends to join us. We were driven to the resort and had a small surprise when after travelling down a small dirt road...

The rooms are clean and well maintained with a fan and A/C and a patio that also includes a fan which is a God send in the midday heat. The surrounds are peaceful and quiet with an...

Just a unique experience, very far from touristic paths. The hosts are welcoming and professional, the food is really good, the accommodation is romantic, clean and spacious. You are in the middle of the backwaters, surrounded by nature, water and birds. You can use the canoes to discover the island by yourself or with Rahesh and it is really worthy...

The place is wonderful. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and are on the backwaters. All the facilities are very good. And as it is in the midst of the backwaters the location is great.

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
