Brunton Boatyard Fort Kochi

One of the most iconic hotels in Fort Kochi sits majestically on the water’s edge and offers vintage luxury in the most charming setting. Originally built as a boat building facility by George Brunton over 100 years ago, the hotel’s period building still maintains the original architectural significance. The hotel mirrors Kochi’s unique architectural and cultural context, a blend English, Portuguese and Dutch influences as seen in the high ceilings, period fixtures and artifices from a bygone era. Most rooms, including the bathrooms look out to the sea. The hotel offers an eclectic menu inspired by a melting pot of cultures of the early settlers of Fort Kochi. The restaurants trace the food heritage of Fort Kochi across numerous communities to offer a melange of cuisines in a befitting setting. There’s plenty to explore in Fort Kochi and Mattancherry area: the Chinese fishing nets, Jew town, Mattancherry Palace and market, and the St. Francis Church. The pool overlooking the harbour is a great spot to unwind and after a long day pottering around Fort Kochi, a relaxing Ayurvedic massage or a healing therapy helps revive sore muscles.
