We were still jet lagged from our flight from the States to India when we arrived at Ourland. It was the perfect way to get through our first day and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the room that was up in the trees, and had a wonderful view of passing houseboats and daily life. We took the canoe over...

We spent two nights at Ourland Resort in the month of December. We were smiling right from the time we approached the resort. The green paddy fields, the narrow village lanes, the boat transport and the coordial staff won our heart. The resort is on an island surrounded by backwaters on all sides. Boat is the only way of reaching...

Two of us toured in Kerala with CHALUKYA GRACE TOURS and stayed at Our Land Island for two nights. We enjoyed a five-day trip from Cochin to Munnar and back to Allepey. The highlights of this were a visit to the spice garden and the tea-covered hills of Munnar. We had a very competent and safe driver. - On a...

We stayed at Our Land for 2 nights at the end of our 2 week trip to Kerala. We stayed in the tree house which had a stunning view of the backwaters. It was so relaxing watching the water all day long and seeing the local people and house boats. We went on a walk organized by our land, and...

We arrived late afternoon with the Kollam-Allepey-ferry (beautiful 8-hours-trip), and were nicely left nearby Ourland resort, where a staffmember was waiting with a canoe, to bring us to our room. Activities: maybe I was a bit misled by the website, the offers are a bit optimistic. I intended to do as much as possible. In these 2 full days we...

Our island resort is like a houseboat, which would have found a room in heaven. Then, why to move and go on its cruise? So the houseboat has stopped forever among bamboos, flowers and birds… So if you are looking for a peaceful place where to relax and enjoy nature, if you are tired of noise and pollution, make a...

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
