Brunton Boatyard

A Fusion Of Fort Kochi’s Colonial History And Its Architectural Grandeur

The Brunton Boatyard in Fort Kochi draws its inspiration from colonial history. It occupies the grounds of a former shipyard from British times, and this historic site, which once bustled with the construction of boats, now stands as the renowned Brunton Boatyard. Our endeavor in its creation was to authentically capture the essence of an era celebrated for its dignified opulence and refined sensibilities. This is evident in every facet of the establishment, from its atmosphere, facilities, and service to its culinary offerings.

Transforming A Bustling Boatyard Into An Elegant Boutique Hotel

This beautifully restored historical building, Brunton Boatyard Hotel, harmoniously complements its colonial-era surroundings and the illustrious trading houses of British India, where Kerala’s pepper was as valuable as gold. Just like the diverse cultures it celebrates and showcases, Brunton Boatyard is a luxurious five-star hotel characterized by an exquisite fusion of English, Portuguese, and Dutch influences. This blend is evident in its soaring ceilings, hanging fans, and an array of artifacts and curios from the opulent mercantile era. As you explore the historic Fort Kochi area where the hotel is located, you’ll be enveloped in the fragrance of colonial history. Although the original fort is mostly gone, remnants of its proud legacy can be found throughout the area.

The Brunton Boatyard Hotel, a CGH Earth property, is anchored along a storied stretch of Cochin’s renowned harbor. Resurrected from the remnants of a Victorian shipyard, this hotel offers contemporary travelers a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the captivating tapestry of 19th-century history.

Accommodation at the Brunton Boatyard Hotel comprises 22 rooms, each boasting picturesque sea views, including the en-suite bathrooms—a delightful, serendipitous feature.

Dining at the Brunton Boatyard Hotel presents an opportunity to savor a diverse fusion of cuisines. In a single evening, you can explore the culinary influences of the various cultures that have graced the Malabar Coast over three centuries.

For those eager to explore, equipped with a map and comfortable footwear, you can embark on a captivating journey through the historic Fort Cochin area where the hotel proudly resides. While little remains of the fort itself, the echoes of history resonate throughout the surrounding legacy.

Brunton Boatyard History

The Brunton Boatyard stands as an esteemed landmark in the historic district of Fort Kochi today, but its origins are steeped in captivating history. Geo Brunton and Sons, revered shipbuilders in Kochi, had their old boatyard located in an ideal spot for CGH Group to recreate an ambiance that would transport visitors back to the 19th-century Malabar, nestled in the heart of Fort Kochi. Every winding lane in this area still echoes tales of its enchanting past, having passed through the hands of the Portuguese, Dutch, and British, each leaving their distinct mark on the region’s European architecture and heritage.

Kochi has been a magnet for traders, explorers, and travelers for over six centuries. Nowhere else in India can you encounter such a mesmerizing amalgamation: colossal Chinese fishing nets, a 400-year-old synagogue, ancient mosques, Portuguese-style houses, and the weathered remnants of the British Raj. The outcome is an unexpected blend of medieval Portugal, Holland, and an English village seamlessly fused with the tropical Malabar Coast. It’s a delightful place to savor and relax in some of India’s most exquisite homestays and heritage accommodations.

Kochi also serves as a hub for Keralan arts and is one of the finest destinations to witness traditional Kathakali performances and the martial art form of kalaripayat. Mainland Ernakulam stands as the bustling transportation and cosmopolitan epicenter of Kochi, while the historic towns of Fort Cochin and Mattancherry, though well-visited by tourists, retain their enchanting ambiance, steeped in the echoes of the past. Other nearby islands, including Willingdon and Vypeen, are connected by a network of ferries and bridges, providing further exploration opportunities.
