Our Land Island Backwater Resort.. India

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 tranquillity 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.

Staying here was by far the highlight of our 4 weeks in India. Beautiful rooms with views over the water. Excellent and copious helpings of freshly cooked Kerala style food. Cold beer! 

A great 90 minute walk with Radeesh one morning when he identified and showed us lots of birds. Followed  the next day with a great little trip up the narrow backwaters in a canoe which gave us access to areas you would never see in a bigger boat. 

Overall an outstanding experience for 2 nights - and we would have happily stayed a little longer though there is little to do other than kickback and relax.
