We stayed for one night at Ourland and really enjoyed the place. Janeesh was fantastic and very accommodating as we had to arrive at 6am due to a strike. He let us have a room early and gave us breakfast too. We were paddled in a canoe over to the island as the sun rose which was magical. Janeesh also... More

The bungalows are located on an island in a canal of the Backwaters, which makes the experience very unique (most of the hotels are located on the Vembanad Lake). There are a few bungalows with, in each, 2 simple rooms and attached bathrooms with a private terrace, plus a tree house (which was under renovation when we were there). The... More

I have been to many places around the world & stayed at many hotels/resorts but none of them have made me think of writing a review at TripAdvisor but definitely Ourland did that . To start with Ourland is a unique place amidst the best natural settings. This virgin island is kept as natural as it can be.. Trees &... More

Our land resort is an ideal place for travellers who want to spend a quiet time in the backwaters of Kerala. The accommodation is good and the food is very good. The staff is very friendly and cooperative. It is highly recommended to indulge in all the activities viz. canoeing (sunset and moonlight trips), morning / evening walks etc.)

Nestled in an idyllic location at an island, this place is a heaven for nature lovers! It makes you leave the worries & noise of city-life behind and helps you relax. Each room offers you enough personal space and makes you feel like you are the only ones amidst nature on this island. Full of surprises, the canoe-rides were amazing... More

We spent 3 days in this place. The dream begins when you get off the taxi and a canoe is waiting for you to get you on the island! The room was quiet, clean and giving right on the river. All around the nature is very restful. We ate at a commun table with the other guests and the meals... More

The tittle of the place " Our Land "is what we feel as soon as we embark in the canoe crossing the river. After noisy roads and trafic it is so peaceful, with the songs of the birds singing all around, the wonderful food prepared by local people, the welcoming of the resort umployees. Nice and clean houses, we were... More

This is a very quiet place that is nice to get away from the chaos of the regular tourist route. A little difficult to find but not terrible. I was a solo traveller, which was fine since many other staying at the same time. However, most of the people (at least when I was there) were an older crowd. Definitely... More
