The Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel, a proud member of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the WorldTM, 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 on sea. The perfect complement to a Galapagos cruise, or a destination on its own, a stay at the Finch Bay allows you to feel the islands’ essence.
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…
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…
We collect and re-use rainwater, implement energy-saving measures, recycle, and clean the public beach daily, striving to leave the islands pristine and to preserve them for generations to come. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.
Finch Bay, a secluded eco-hotel accessible only by boat. The lodge sits outside Puerto Ayora and overlooks a small, sandy beach surrounded by mangroves, which chirp with the sound of finches from which the hotel takes its name.
The Finch Bay satiates the growing trend for land-based Galapagos exploration; perfect for those that have not found their sea legs or who wish to explore the Galapagos archipelago independently without following the regimented itineraries of a cruise.
The only beachfront hotel in all Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island, the Finch Bay Eco Hotel delights with seclusion, beautiful natural surroundings, a sun-splashed swimming pool, and fine dining prepared from the freshest ingredients by a Le Cordon Bleu-qualified chef.
Since opening, The Finch Bay has continually led the way in sustainable practices, implementing a number of key energy-saving measures throughout the hotel.
