This iconic Galapagos hotel is situated on the Waterfront surrounded by both Galapagos wildlife and Mangroves on Santa Cruz Island. On the oceanfront deck, there are daily displays of wildlife. Furthermore, you can enjoy the show from the hotel’s Private Deck and Restaurant area with incredible panoramic scenes of the Galapagos Islands.
Galapagos Habitat Hotel is an exclusive ecological experience. Most noteworthy are the oceanfront views of Academy Bay and the naturally surrounding mangroves. As a result, the mangroves give off the sensation of exclusion from the rest of the island. The hotel is in Puerto Ayora, but it doesn’t feel like it.
Guests can choose between 17 different rooms with an Ocean View or an exclusive look at the Mangrove Ecosystem. There are 5 Suites, 6 Superiors, and 12 Superior accommodations in total.
Originally constructed in 1995, Galapagos Habitat still boasts a unique architectural design, blending mangrove forests and Galapagos shoreline. The Privileged Location allows close observation of the mangrove ecosystem in action and views of Puerto Ayora’s bay.
In addition to Galapagos Habitat’s extraordinary characteristics, the hotel hosts multiple Galapagos natives who often frequent the hotel and deck area. Friendly sea lions, marine iguanas, pelicans, and other well-known Galapagos animals love to relax in the company of the guests.
You can also enjoy exploring the hotel's stunning surroundings and the archipelago hotspots aboard the fully equipped Windrose, the newest yacht for Galapagos travel, a state-of-the-art Sunseeker Manhattan 74-foot motor yacht.
