Mar 31st. Mumbai – Fort Kochi (Cochin)

Overnight – Brunton Boatyard

You are assisted with your check-out after breakfast and then a hotel vehicle will drive you to the domestic terminal of Mumbai Airport. You are assisted with boarding your no-frills (no full-service airlines fly this route) flight to Cochin. Upon your arrival at Cochin Airport your North India Tour Director Guide will bid you farewell after introducing you to your Kerala Tour Director. Guiding in South India requires proficiency in the local languages – India has 19 languages and over 500 dialects. Unless they have lived there for a long time, North Indians are not able to communicate effectively in local Southern Indian languages.

You are driven to historic Fort Kochi to the bayfront location of the renovated 19th Century Dutch boat building facility that is your lodging, Brunton Boatyard, and assisted with your check-in to your sea facing suite. This extremely charming boutique 22 room lodge does not boast the luxury of most of your previous hotels, but it oozes a magical charm and has incredible service levels. This is by far the best lodging in the ancient historic seaport, and many of our guests rate their experience here higher than the ultra-lux hotels they have already stayed at. It has by far the best location and some of the finest coastal Keralan cuisine, very different from other cuisines in India with its Dutch and Portuguese influences – the restaurant chefs and servers will amaze you at every meal. You are right next to most of the major attractions of this fascinating historic small town, ideal for morning & evening walks. Excellent Ayurvedic massages and treatments are available in their small spa.
