We were considering joining a houseboat tour to explore the Backwaters of Kerala, but had heard really mixed reviews. 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.

Located on its own island in the backwaters Our Land provides a a slice of backwater life unlike that experienced on the house-boats.

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
