Moored on a historic stretch of Cochin's famed harbour, Brunton Boatyard is a tribute to another age and is the perfect place from which to watch spectacular sunsets over the palm fringed shores of Vypeen Island. Formerly a Victorian shipbuilding yard, it gives the modern traveller a unique opportunity to dwell amidst the shadow-plays of 19th Century history. The refurbished, period building blends in perfectly with its colonial era surroundings, once-great trading houses from the high era of commerce. The hotel interiors are an eclectic blend of English, Portuguese and Dutch influences with soaring ceilings, hanging fans, and artefacts and curios from the great age of steam and sail.

Eating at Brunton Boatyard’s History Restaurant is literally a journey through time with each dish reflecting different cultures. At the History Restaurant cuisines have been given a new lease of life, recreated faithfully each evening by chefs who did their research in the best place possible - with the old families of Cochin. Enjoy fish Moilee, Vindaloo and a Dutch Pudding.



Beyond the obvious charms of Fort Cochin there is much to do without even having to step out of Brunton Boatyard's imposing gates. Relax by the pool before joining in a cooking demonstration on the terrace where the chef teaches the secrets behind one of the restaurants famous dishes or spend an afternoon cycling the city's markets and old quarters, seeing the Fort Cochin most tourists never see. Around 6.30 (or thereabouts, depending on the season), the Brunton Boatyard's trusty craft departs from its private jetty for a fascinating cruise around Cochin Harbour. Enjoy spectacular sunsets, glorious sea air and possibly seeing a dolphin or two!



In the setting that blends east and west, the compact Ayurvedic centre does the same. After exploring fascinating Fort Cochin, a synchronised Keralan massage (performed by two expert therapists) sooths body and mind.
