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. However, in this review I want to focus on the people. The people that work in OurLand will forever stay in my heart. I'm in debts...

After two weeks travelling around Rajhestan Ourland Resort was a wonderfully peaceful break for two days. The bungalow was immaculately clean, food was good and the staff are lovely. The couple who took us on the sunset canoe trip and the guide on the early morning walk were great. It must be stressed this is a very quiet place to...

Thanks Linda for your valuable feedback. Regarding the taxi driver, please note that we normally arrange the same from outside vendors & he may be not fully aware of the facilities in the Resort. Also as per the Government rule, we are not supposed to stock & serve beer, but the customer can bring their own alcoholic beverages for consumption....

We are just back from the trip of Kerala where we spent one day and night in Vagomon and two days and nights at Backwaters. Our stay at backwaters was at Ourland Resort. On arriving there you will be amazed and enthralled by the nature around. Situated in a small island surrounded from all the sides with water and small...

Our Land Resort was lovely and relaxing. We had a great outlook from our bungalow of the backwaters and aside from canoe trips there was literally nothing to do - which was the point of the trip for us! The food provided was very tasty. But - and the reason for the 3-star rating - it was expensive for what...

Thanks for the review... We would like to reinstate that our rates are not overpriced compared to other properties in Kerala considering the fact that we are an Island property & our overheads are higher. Also one should not forget the fact that our rates included all meals, all activities & all applicable taxes. Regarding your suggestion of having more...

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...

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...

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...

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....

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.

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
