Our Land Resort Alleppey
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.
In the lap of nature, Our Land has stayed true to its roots and blends in perfectly with the rustic landscape that surrounds it for miles. The resort’s modern amenities unobtrusively attend to the comforts of guests and do not compromise on the hotel’s natural ambience and pursuit to ensure that its carbon footprint on the environment is minimised.
Our Land invites guests and divulges secrets – this hideaway island was a one-time den of a fierce bandit immortalised by the locals as a Robin Hood! Madhu, the soul of the small hotel as well as manager and chef-in-charge will personally pick you up from the airport and drive with you through the lush greenery of the Kerala countryside to Our Land.
During your stay here you can unravel the secrets of this one-time bandit hideaway and ensconce yourself in its warm and welcoming world.
For a former secret hideaway of a notorious bandit, the island hideaway is remarkably accessible!
By Air: Kerala has three international airports – Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode. Kochi Airport (97km) is the nearest flight connection. The airport is well connected to all major Indian cities with a range of domestic airlines to choose from. If you are flying in from overseas, fly direct to Kochi on Emirates (via Dubai) or Qatar Airways (via Doha). The airport is also served by numerous other airlines from Europe, the Middle East and Colombo, as well as connecting flights from the major Indian cities. From the Kochi Airport, either take a taxi from the queue or pre-book a transfer with the hotel (3 hours).
By Rail: Alappuzha (Alleppy) is the nearest train station (14 km) and is connected to many major Indian cities by rail. From the railway station, catch a local taxi or pre-book a transfer with the hotel (45 minutes).
By Road: Our Land is located at Karimbavalavu, just 45 minutes by boat from Alappuzha towards Kollam. It is only 15 minutes by boat from Pallathuruthy Bridge which any local taxi driver will know.
You can also travel along the Alappuzha-Changanassery Road and turn right from Pandarakkalam Kayal and continue until you reach the Gopika Tea Stall. Walk for 10 minutes through the paddy field to the canal bank and cross over the canal by village canoe to Our Land.
