Brunton Boatyard, Kochi

Overlooking the harbour, this boutique hotel perfectly echoes the Dutch and Portuguese colonial architecture of old Fort Kochi.

Although a new building, this hotel perfectly echoes the Dutch and Portuguese colonial architecture of old Fort Kochi. With lime-washed walls and terracotta floors, fine public areas and bedrooms featuring antique four poster beds, it is a perfect fusion of old and new.

The lobby sets the tone - a vault of sunlight and air, it is framed by arches and overhung with punkahs - enormous, old-fashioned fans of Indo-Portuguese origin. The rooms meanwhile are simple, yet comfortable spaces, with décor dominated by exposed wood, white walls and local craft pieces. All afford superb views, not least of Kochi's famed fishing nets, which date back to 1350 and whose preying-mantis shapes are one of the city's most enduring images.
