Style and sustainability in the Galapagos Islands.
Located on the southern end of Ecuador’s Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos, this full-service eco-hotel provides guests with luxury accommodations in an area where the quality lodging is as sparse as the fresh water. There is plenty of fresh water at Finch Bay, though, as the hotel’s on-site desalination plant provides guests with an unlimited supply, and its purification practices ensure the supply is clean and fresh. Its conservation methods earned it Smart Voyager certification, as well as membership in the Sustainability Tourism Certification Network for the Americas. The hotel consists of 27 air-conditioned rooms, six of which are ocean view suites with balconies/patios overlooking the bay. For business travelers, staying connected is convenient as the hotel offers wireless, as well as wired Internet access, telephones, fax and email. The on-site restaurant features international and Galapagos-inspired cuisine, and the bar and lounge provide a relaxing poolside oasis for imbibing and mingling after a day of outdoor adventures.
