Where to stay

Some of the wonderful places to stay that we frequently recommended.

Galapagos Safari Camp £££££

  • Galapagos Islands

An eco-luxury tented camp in the wild highlands of Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos Safari Camp is set on a ridge that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and National Park. Its breath-taking infinity pool doubles as an extraordinary spot to take a refreshing dip while overlooking some of the property’s 135-acres of untouched private land. The panoramic camp offers nine luxurious and spacious safari-style tents and a three-bedroom family suite, all elegantly furnished and each with a private hot-shower bathroom. The tents are constructed on raised wooden platform and feature decks that are overhung by a canopy of endemic trees.

Iguana Crossing £££££

  • Galapagos Islands

A boutique eco-friendly hotel with minimalist design aesthetics, Iguana Crossing offers a unique insight into life on the scarcely populated Isabela Island. Boasting a beachfront location in the small village of Puerto Villamil, the property is surrounded by endemic vegetation. Featuring just 12 stylish rooms and a suite, most of which benefit from balconies and expansive ocean views, Iguana Crossing has a roof terrace with jacuzzi and is the only property on Isabela to have its own oceanfront pool.

Royal Palm Hotel £££££

  • Galapagos Islands

An exclusive property nestled on a 480-acre private estate in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island, Royal Palm Hotel is a secluded hideaway situated on a gently sloping hill with views to the ocean in the distance. Surrounded by native flora and fauna, and ringing with the hum of Darwin finches and egrets, the accommodation is an immersive base for further island exploration. Its eight well-appointed casitas have verandas that overlook the estate, while the 13 luxurious villas sit individually within the grounds and offer advanced privacy and space. An on-site restaurant affords guests with ocean-views on clear days, although many prefer to dine al fresco with a sundowner cocktail under the blanket of stars.

  • Galapagos Islands
  • Beach and Island Escapes

Named after the Darwin finches that frequent the surrounding area, Finch Bay Hotel is nestled across from Puerto Ayora in a quiet oceanfront location on Santa Cruz Island. The property features 27 rooms and suites, an outdoor pool and a restaurant that serves locally-inspired cuisine. The property is flexible in that it offers stays on only a bed and breakfast basis right through to a complete full-board package with daily guided land and sea excursions.

Pikaia Lodge £££££

  • Galapagos Islands

A unique concept in the Galapagos, Pikaia Lodge is a contemporary property that carefully balances adventurous land-based activities with ocean-bound excursions. Guests are welcomed on board the lodge’s spacious and luxurious yacht and allocated a private cabin, but are able to return at night to the comforts of Pikaia Lodge to sleep on steady ground. Providing an ideal base from which to explore a wide selection of islands, the lodge operates similarly to boat-based programmes by providing planned, fully-guided excursions that include sea kayaking, snorkelling and walking.
