THE NEW GALAPAGOS HABITAT ECO LUXURY HOTEL... the evolution of hotel lodging in Santa Cruz

The Galapagos Habitat Eco Luxury Hotel is an exclusive ecological experience. The iconic Galapagos hotel is situated right on the waterfront — surrounded by both Galapagos wildlife and mangroves that give a delightful sense of seclusion in the town of Puerto Ayora — on Santa Cruz Island, in the heart of the Galapagos Islands.

The Galapagos hotel is all about living the islands in all their glory. Their ocean-front property in the port brings you into up-close contact with animals from the moment you arrive: sea lions laze on our deck, marine iguanas sun themselves by the restaurant, frigate birds swoop on the currents above the mangrove forest

Located within a magical mangrove forest and washed by the sea breeze, the hotel offers 17 different types of rooms: 5 Suites with ocean views, 5 Superior Rooms with partial ocean views, and 7 Standard Rooms with mangrove views… All suffused with the beauty of the islands and the soul of their creatures.

When it comes to dining,  their Almar Galapagos restaurant will delight you at any time of day or night with its imaginative, unique take on Ecuadorian, Argentinean and international cuisine. As pelicans dive in the bay and the afternoon sun wanes… chow down on fresh ceviche accompanied by a crisp glass of wine on our ocean-front deck.

Galapagos Habitat is the ideal springboard for enjoying Galapagos expeditions: Discover both the island of Santa Cruz, with its forested highlands and beautiful beaches, and the surrounding islands. All different, all stimulating, all with their own unique mix of wildlife and volcanic landscapes.

Their Eco Story

Their main goal is to generate consciousness about the importance of sustainability, equilibrium, and a healthy relation of humans with nature. As Galapagos Habitat waterfront deck-hotel their commitment with the Galapagos Archipelago is based on daily managed initiatives that allow them to be a responsible hotel, who cares for the ecosystem in all the services they offer. Their world demands fast paced-initiatives, and at Galapagos Habitat one of their most important characteristic is constant innovation regarding conservation. They are aware that conservation demands multi-disciplinary efforts to maintain the Galapagos Islands’ unique wildlife habitat!

Energy efficiency, disposal and residual waste management, communication initiatives, recycling education, creating opportunities to locals, local products and services

WILDLIFE: Having wildlife at your doorstep is awesome! But also represents a huge responsibility.  They have always  invited marine birds and sea lions to mingle on their deck, and they carefully communicate and manage this relationship. They prohibit the contact of their staff and their explorers with the wildlife, preventing any change in the wildlife’s habits. They do not want to impact their lifestyles, but want to share this unique place with them. 

THE RED MANGROVES: Because of their location, they are also involved and aware of the preservation of the red mangrove surrounding the hotel. This unique ecosystem is home to many marine species that depend on mutualism as their way of life.

CONSERVATION: By carefully managing all of the mentioned efforts their goal is to preserve this National Park’s endeavor to preserve each spot within this archipelago.
