The only beachfront hotel on Santa Cruz Island, this charming eco-friendly retreat lies steps away from the talcum-white sands of Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz, right in the heart of the Galapagos archipelago.
Set between beach and mangrove, in gardens alive with the sound of birds, the property is home to 27 spacious and elegant rooms and suites, each one features rustic chic décor and delightful balconies.
The gourmet restaurant serves fresh, local and sustainably sourced dishes and a wide selection of fine wines. The pool offers welcome respite and attracts finches, herons and ducks as well as sunbathers throughout the day.
Rated as one of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, this is the perfect place to explore the staggering biodiversity of the local area from land or sea. After a tiring day sip a cocktail at sunset on the viewpoint, or just swing in a hammock on your private deck.
