Brunton Boatyard

More than a century ago, George Brunton & Sons set up a boat-building facility in Cochin which grew to become one of the biggest ship-builders in the country. Records show that the British used some of the ships built here during World War II. On the very same site, long years after the boatyard was shut down, was built the Brunton Boatyard - effortlessly recreating the splendor of the city's illustrious past. For what is essentially an intimate sea-facing property, the Brunton Boatyard possesses a remarkable sense of scale and takes you back in time to the days of the British Raj. Situated at the harbour mouth overlooking the busy ship channel, all rooms boast a magnificent view of the sea, the Delta and the many boats and ocean liners that pass by. The period feeling of the resort with its huge halls, high ceilings, and long passageways extends to the rooms which have four poster beds. The ancient royal punkahs (fans) in the reception, old Dutch maps and portraits of Cochin's illustrious leaders on the walls and an old anchor in the courtyard all add to the ancient charm.
