A Brief History

The Old Lighthouse mast along with the bungalow that was called the Bristow House came up in 1927-28. Sir Robert Bristow, a member of the Royal Society of Arts, left his indelible mark in the construction and architecture of this British-style heritage building where he lived during his stay in Fort Kochi, Cochin. After the British left India, the Indian Government converted the Bristow House into the official residence for port officials and personnel of the Indian Navy and Air Force. During 1980s, the Government of India moved out of the building and it was reduced to a faint shadow of its former grandeur due to lack of maintenance.

In December 2006, the Bristow House was given on lease to Suvira Energy following a fierce bidding war. Vikram Ghorpade, the owner of Suvira Energy who has a keen interest in restoration of heritage properties, put in a lot of effort to revive the lost glory of the Old Lighthouse and the Bristow House. Today, the Bristow House stands as one of the finest properties in Fort Kochi, Kerala and has been rechristened as the Old Lighthouse Bristow. The centuries-old trees and the lighthouse mast bear witness to beautiful ships that sail past the property and add to the staying experience of our esteemed guests who make this property their home away from home while vacationing in Cochin, only to return later to recapture the holiday magic.

About Sir Robert Bristow

Born on December 13, 1880 to Alfred Bristow and Laura Web, Sir Robert Bristow completed his education from the Technical Institute in London. He joined the Civil Engineering Service in 1903 and was employed in a number of renowned harbors across the world for the next sixteen years. He worked in various locations including ports such as Malta and Portsmouth and was involved in the maintenance of the Suez Canal as well.

He joined the services of the Madras government at the age of thirty-nine and came to Kochi on April 13, 1920 under the direction of Lord Willingdon, then Governor of Madras. For the next twenty-one years, he was involved with the construction of the port and succeeded in transforming Kochi into one of the safest harbors in the peninsula, where ships berthed alongside the newly reclaimed inner harbor equipped with a long array of steam cranes.

The steam ship Padma, sailing from Bombay on 26 May, 1928, was the first major ship to enter the newly constructed inner harbor of Kochi. Bristow returned to England on April 13, 1941. Thereafter, he served at the Manchester University for some time. He died in September 1966 at the age of eight-five.

Sir Bristow used to say that he loved the reply of a French Minister to a queen of long ago,

“Madame, if it is only difficult, it is already done; if it is impossible, it shall be done.”

This very philosophy guides the staff at The Old Lighthouse Bristow when it comes to serving our esteemed guests while staying true to our commitment to “Responsible Luxury”.

Lokacija

Kochi, Kerala, Indija

Simple yet elegant, peaceful and tranquil – this is Old Lighthouse Bristow. Taking inspiration from the majesty of the ancient Dutch Fort city is the hotel, an architectural, heritage masterpiece that looks out across the deep blue Arabian Sea. The hotel offers a touch of class and a hint of the past as well as exquisite cuisine.

The majestic building is a historic treasure. For a long time this bungalow was the official residence of Sir Robert Bristow, the founder and first chairman of the Cochin Port. It also doubled up as a lighthouse from where Bristow used to watch the ships that sailed into and out of the port. Till the late 1980’s the bungalow served as a residence for the senior officers of the port. Gradually, perhaps owing to steep maintenance costs and other issues, this lovely building was left to run to seed.

Now acquired on a long lease by Suvira Group, the present owners put in tremendous renovation work to turn this heritage structure back to its old grandeur. “We must have spent nearly two years to revive the lost glory of this beautiful spot. And now we are ready to receive guests giving them a feel of heritage with all modern amenities,” informs Jaisheel Amin, project manager.

View to the sea

The Old Lighthouse Bristow has the Arabian Sea right across its wall. The renovation has been done in such a way that you get a view of the sea from each of the nine rooms and two villas. The best is, of course, the two rooms on either end of the upper storey. They have private balconies that face the sea directly. The sound, sight and smell of the sea pervade. You can spend hours from the balcony of your room, sipping your favorite drink and watching the sea churn with all its power. The white froth rolls in wave on top of wave, grabbing at the shoreline like a hungry beast. Far out into the sea, along the horizon, curly ribbons of white break the dark grey-green surface. On the small strip of beach across the wall you can see people chasing the waves as they come roaring into the shore. The sea is certainly the USP of this property.

On the neatly manicured lawns stand huge, old trees, over 150 years old. The landscaped garden blends well with the waterscape. “The hotel can be categorized as an ultra luxury boutique hotel with a host of amenities and restaurants. There is the infinity swimming pool that overlooks the garden, we have a spa and some fine eating and lounging spots,” says Brian Diaz, liaison officer.

Eating experience

The best place, other than the luxurious ‘rooms with a view’ is the Bristow’s Bistro, an outdoor dining area, overlooking the sea and the Fort Kochi beach. There’s nothing like a quiet evening, watching the sunset on the Arabian Sea, or the fishermen coming back home, listening to the music of the waves and munching fresh, hot, spicy seafood delicacies. The hotel has two more spots to relax with the choicest drinks and food, the Lighthouse Lounge and Vinocean, a spectacular indoor retro lounge with breathtaking views of the sea. The culinary skills of Executive Chef who has served on the luxury cruise liner Queen Mary makes eating out here a truly wonderful experience.

“Spa Deha, our in-house spa, offers a wide variety of treatments from the traditional Kerala Ayurvedic massages, Balinese and Swedish beauty treatments that is sure to rejuvenate your mind and body. We also offer manicures, pedicures, and facials,” says Bindiya Menon, manager.

Centrally located the hotel is just hop-step-and-jump away from the must see places of Fort Kochi. The rooms are expensive but then luxury like this does not come cheap. On the flip side the interiors of the room, painted in green and aquamarine blue appear a bit too harsh in an otherwise aesthetically structured place.

The best thing about this place is that a valuable piece of heritage that was going to ruins has been renovated, brought back to life.
