An idyllic beach-front retreat on Santa Cruz

The spirit of Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel

Perfectly situated on the south side of Santa Cruz Island, is the Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel, one of National Geographic’s ‘Unique Lodges of the World’. Choose to stay in either one of the 6 Finch Bay Suites, or choose from a selection of 21 Finch Bay Rooms. All suites and rooms are beautifully appointed and feature crisp bed linen, black-out curtains, air conditioning, and private bathrooms with hot-water showers. Suites are slightly elevated, and offer expansive views across the bay and ocean from their private balconies, complete with hammocks; room guests share porches or balconies with their own hammocks, overlooking the tranquil surrounds of the hotel’s landscaped gardens.

Sip a signature Galapagos cocktail in the bar or lounge, contemplating the panoramic ocean views, before fine-dining on a selection of sustainably-sourced seafood dishes, infused with the flavours of the Galapagos, and inspired by the cuisine of Ecuador. Pair your meal with a world-class Argentinian or Chilean wine. Meet the giant tortoises of Santa Cruz, or take a leisurely cycle around the island. Climb aboard our Sea Lion yacht, and enjoy a Galapagos day-cruise. Delight in a variety of aquatic adventures including kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving, or surfing. The white-sand beach of Tortuga Bay, the island’s lava tunnels, the Charles Darwin Research Station, and the town of Puerto Ayora, are all conveniently close by.
