“We enjoyed the calmness immensely, the excursions, and the hospitality”
Reviewed October 18, 2010

From the first moment were we charmed by this isolated, yet so wonderful little island. Wonderful relaxation, wonderful excursions on and along the channels with beautiful birds and flowers, and a most hospitable staff.

It is a beautiful place located on an island. You can bath in the river or borrow a small boat and make your own local tours. The service is excellent and the staff very kind and ready to make special arrangement. We can strongly recommend a stay in Our Land Island

We had a great time there . First time my daughter seeing a Village life in India. Prefect place for relaxation and enjoying local cusine and culture. We liked the bird watching and trekking. Water rafting on the small boat was very exciting. We could able to spot some water snakes , I understood that they are not poisionous. You will really enjoy wheather visting alone or with family. Very safe and secure surrounding. Above all all the local food was awesome - cook told me they use the vegetable and fish availbe in the resort area. Wow.. We enjoyed.

Our Land is situated on a small island in the backwaters of Kerala.
We were wellcomed by Benni, who canoed us to the island. He took very well care of us during our stay. We were the only guests and stayed in a small bungalow at the seashore. The meals were served at the veranda. We were canoed in the backwaters at sunrise and sunset and saw a lot of birds. Benni had a great knowledge of birds. We were taken on a long early morning walk along the narrow paths between the backwaters and the ricefields and houses. The silence was a great contrast to the noise in the cities. The big houseboats were passing in front of the island.
The room and bathroom was clean and well maintained.
If you like the countryside, birds silence and peace, then Our Land is a good choice.

Our Land is one of the most beautiful experiences I've had while travelling through our amazing country. We were there with some friends and the entire place seemed like it belonged to us.

The staff literally bends over backwards to ensure that you have a good stay. :-)
They even go out to different parts of Kerala with you to ensure that even your excursions are smooth and hurdle free.

In short, beautiful place, owned and run by even more beautiful people. Worth every penny.

Forget the houseboats, they are overrated. Go for a couple nighst at Ourland resort located on an small Island in the Backwaters area. It is a nice retreat, away from the hectic Indian life.

Rooms and food were simple but surprisingly good.

There is not much to do, which was a blessing for us. The manager took us for two guided tours, one on foot and one by canoe. Other than that you can take a canoe tour or feed the fishes.

Ourland - now I understand why they call it "God´s own country".
Magnificent place. Great hospitality and the food is worth traveling for.
The staff is so kind, helpful and enthusiastic and will take you to cano-, hiking-, fishing-, bicycling tours. Actually the will do whatever to make your stay perfect.
