Brunton Boatyard, Cochin


A restored 19th-Century shipyard, close to the famous Chinese Fishing Nets in Fort Kochi

Beautifully restored from the remains of a Victorian shipyard, this charming boutique hotel sits right on the waterfront, just a short walk from the famous Chinese Fishing Nets. Showcasing a wonderful mix of colonial Dutch, British and Portuguese décor, the hotel's interiors artistically reflect the history of the region in which it sits. Charming features include the high arched wooden ceilings and the terracotta floors, as well as a wonderful assortment of antique artefacts, like the genuine punkah fans and the maritime maps that decorate the walls.

The hotel's cuisine is also reflective of the cultures that have influenced Fort Cochin and the state of Kerala. Open at dinner time, the Terrace Grill is the hotel's sumptuous fresh seafood speciality restaurant, with a charming lantern-lit terrace and beautiful views overlooking the bustling harbour front. The fine dining venue History provides guests with a delicious melting pot of flavours including those influenced by the Portuguese, Dutch and British, as well as local Keralan cuisine. The casual harbourfront setting and unique décor of the Armoury create the ideal spot for a delicious lunch, a quick evening snack, delicious cocktails and a variety of premium wines and liqueurs.
