Constructed from the remains of a 19th century shipyard, the Brunton Boatyard Hotel evokes thoughts of ancient trade routes, cultural exchange and seaside adventure. Inspired by its nautical past, the hotel welcomes guests to its shores to bask in the sun and the history of the famed Cochin harbor.
Each of the 22 rooms and four suites at the Brunton Boatyard Hotel looks out onto the Arabian Sea. Rest in the generous window-side tub, separate glass shower, or oversized four-poster bed as you soak in the sights from the harbor through teak-lined windows. Rich woods and crisp linens accent the rooms, reminiscent of the sails and planks of ships of old. To complete the nautical feel, the Harbour Suites are elegantly appointed with colonial-era antiques.
Transport yourself back in time at every turn inside the Brunton Boatyard Hotel. Maps, navigation devices, and all manner of seafaring artifacts from bygone days decorate the lobby and restaurants. Guests are welcomed by a grand lobby accented by punkahs, traditional Portuguese fans. Take in a game of billiards in the airy lobby, or retreat to the intimate English tea room to sample the hotel’s selection for traditional afternoon tea. The History Cafe offers a fusion of Dutch, Syrian, India, and local Kerala cuisines prepared with signature spices of the area, while the outdoor Terrace Grill features fresh-caught seafood, plucked straight from the harbor and artfully prepared by local chefs.
Spend a peaceful afternoon in the Armory Bar, a name inspired by the Portuguese muskets and breastplates that adorn the walls, with a selection of spirits and teas to complement the views of the water. The grand harbor-side pool provides an excellent vantage from which to watch passing ships. Chinese-style fishing nets with their distinct praying mantis shapes are found up and down the harbor coast, some of Cochin’s most notable images.
