Brunton Boatyard

In the Fort Cochin neighbourhood, Brunton Boatyard used to be a ship building yard in the 19th century. After independence, some of these yards went into oblivion. In the late 20th century, this yard was remodelled to a luxury hotel overlooking the harbour. The Brunton Boatyard was transformed into what we consider to be the finest subtle luxury that one can find in Fort Cochin.

As you walk into the hotel, you are greeted by a large inner courtyard that has trees that are more than a century old. The interior design is actually like that of a boatyard. The furnishings used are reminiscent of a heady mix of Dutch, English and Portuguese influences. The architecture is airy, light and beautifully lit up by natural light. You have photographic prints from a period that is more than 100 years old. The cuisine is refined and delectable. Look for the seafood restaurant that opens only at night. The views from the rooms of the passing ships are fabulous.

Our rating from all hotels in Cochin 5/5
