“This Eco getaway is about getting fully immersed in nature. For the more intrepid traveller who is content with rustic simplicity and an authentic experience. Not for those who like their creature comforts - although there are plenty of creatures to keep you comfort! A bird watcher's paradise.”

Hotel Review

The approach by kayak sets the intrigue as Our Land, a small island, comes into view surrounded by floating water hyacinths. Here, it's about totally unwinding and connecting with nature. Four khaki-coloured cottages and a treehouse, each have a verandah and hammock. Rooms are spotlessly clean and simply furnished with en suite showers. No more than 6-8 guests can stay at one time so it's very peaceful and you're well looked after by the low key team. The day begins with a bird watching walk (105 species have been spotted around the local village and rice paddies) then Ayurveda massage with an intuitive 3rd generation therapist in the special treatment rooms, later a sunset kayak trip. All meals - a daily changing set menu - take place in another building using organic ingredients, some grown in the garden. It's where the group can socialise. The overall effect is deeply grounding.
