Semilla Verde Boutique Hotel

Here at Semilla Verde, we believe your experience in the Galapagos Islands should be as unique and natural as you are. So, we offer you the chance to stay somewhere far removed from your busy life and the standard hotel offering you may be used to. Giant tortoises visit the seasonal ponds on the property from August to March and native birds such as Darwin Finches, Yellow Warblers, Dark Billed Cuckoos and Galapagos Mockingbirds thrive in the lush green canopy all year round.

Your rural refuge in the Galapagos Islands

Semilla Verde Boutique Hotel is an original and idyllic retreat where space, privacy and Galapagos wildlife abounds.

Enjoy one-to-one personal service, panoramic views from private terraces and exclusive access to nature trails through twelve acres of private forest where giant tortoises lumber freely and native birds thrive; at night, gaze up into the unspoilt majesty of the milky way.

Nine air conditioned bedrooms with private bathroom and TV/DVD player just 12 minutes shuttle/taxi ride from Puerto Ayora; an authentic and genuinely friendly land-base for your Galapagos adventure.

Una de las mejores experiencias en nuestro viaje. Un hotel con sus tortugas gigantes y su propio café, la habitación gigante, walk in closet, maderas nobles, comedor y sala donde compartir con los demás pasajeros, jardines y senderos para perderse... maravilloso.
