Stayed here with my wife in October 2014 for one night during my Kerala trip. This was the best out of all the places that we stayed at. Clean cottages with amazing views and natural surroundings. They have found a perfect balance where you can experience true natural beauty and village life, but also have the bare minimum luxuries that... More

Pros: 1) Really peaceful, just relax and do angling . 2) Awesome food (except the fish - fish fry was bad , but chicken curry was out of this world) 3) Moonlight Canoe trip - a completely different...

We did some research, looked at the reviews and chose to stay Our Land. The location is awesome and is away from the daily hustle and bustle. The location is on an island... More

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... More
