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

This was the best place we stayed in the whole of India! It is on an island which you get a canoe to arrive at and once you step food off the boat, you are in heaven. Ourland is in such a beautiful location, natural beauty is all around and it is so peaceful. The rooms are lovely, very spacious... More

We stayed at this resort for a couple nights and truly enjoyed the experience. The cottages are fully air-conditioned with hot and cold water and the meals which are included are served in the adjacent dining area. The staff are very friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. All the cottages face onto... More

This is a very special place. The staff is very friendly and entusiastic. I booked the treehouse, which was the kind of cabin you dreamt about in your childhood. Due to the small scale, communal meals and environment, a visit here feels much more personal and dreamy than the experience at a large common resort. Theres an inhouse houseboat available... More

Though the rooms are very basic but it’s an excellent location. Food is very good and people are very honest and helpful. The only issue we found is the mosquitoes but I guess this is because of the Paddy fields around. Overall it was excellent.

It was indeed a pleasant surprise to be in this tiny natural island. The nature is left free to flourish at its own. The large number of birds flocking into the Island & its chirping sound in the evening itself denotes the virginity of this island. Rooms here are well maintained, spotlessly cleaned & beautifully kept. I stayed at the... More

If you're looking for an alternative to the houseboats, this place is it. The room we stayed in was nice, clean, and had a great outdoor space overlooking the backwaters. The food was very good and a lot of it. All local dishes coupled with continental meals. It was definitely a buffet feel at the table. And the meals were... More
