Wildlife & Spa Resort of the Week🦎🦭🐢: Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel on Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos, Ecuador

The Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel is your Galapagos exploration headquarters, a beachfront base from which to discover the wildlife of the islands aboard our private yacht and create your own adventures on land and sea.

The perfect complement to a Galapagos cruise, or a destination on its own, a stay at this Galapagos luxury hotel allows you to feel the islands’ essence.

Ideal setting in Puerto Ayora

Step right onto the beach from your room at the Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel positioned on the south side of Santa Cruz Island in the heart of the Galapagos archipelago. Direct, intimate contact with wildlife is inevitable: we’re surrounded by a protected national park whose feathered and scaly residents like to drop in on us from time to time.

Peace and comfort

Six Finch Bay Suites all offer direct ocean views with private balconies to provide you with your own space to appreciate this privileged environment. These Galapagos luxury hotel rooms are a fresh, relaxing retreat, where crisp bed linens, stylish interiors and balconies with space to sling a hammock are standard.

Taste of the islands

Here, you’ll find fresh, local ingredients (many from our own vegetable garden) prepared using modern techniques, executed with flair, and accompanied by authentic, stellar service. You haven’t tasted luxury until you’ve tried the sustainable slipper lobster.

The only footprints we want to leave are in the sand

Our collection of rainwater, energy-saving measures, recycling, and daily beach-cleaning all show how we strive to leave the islands pristine and to preserve them for generations to come. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

Enjoy the archipelago’s energy

In a gorgeous setting hidden close to a pristine beach, the Finch Bay Spa is a haven of calm and relaxation. The Spa in our Galapagos luxury hotel focuses on giving you the ideal space, accoutrements, and treatments to ensure that your stay in the Enchanted Isles is a source of wellbeing, as well as wonder.

An enriching, relaxing, and rejuvenating land and sea experience for everyone

The Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel’s earliest risers can wade out into the beach’s calm waters and spot yellow warblers darting among the mangroves. With subtle architecture that mimics the surrounding volcanic rocks and attractive wooden walkways leaving the environment undisturbed, this Expedition hotel has a distinct sense of place.

Why Do We Recommend Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel?

Galapagos Island. Need I say more? Okay well, the hotel is well laid out and does not disrupt the strange natural beauty of the island, its inhabitants, or its surroundings. The rooms are spacious, the spa is world-class, and I’ve heard the meals are sublime. Enough? Excellent, I cannot wait to experience it myself!
