Yoga Retreats

Small groups are the best way to experience the Galapagos Islands. This is an intimate retreat with 16 sellable spaces assuming single/doublé/triple occupancy across nine rooms. Each room is tastefully decorated and has its own private terrace. There are three lounges in the two hotel buildlings and so free space is never an issue.

Boat excursions to the most spectacular outlying islands to Santa Cruz have maximum 16 people onboard. And, the group will have the expertise of a Certified Galapagos Naturalist Guide to accompany them on all tours and excursions.

The island excursions are full day events and include a land and snorkel element. Mask and fins are provided and lunch is on the boat itself. There is more than ample opportunity to get in the water with sea lions, rays, turtles on each excursion days. Naturally, we can’t guarantee what animal encounters will be like, but you are most likely to observe sharks, sea lions, penguins, marine iguanas and blue-footed boobies and a whole plethora of other unique species.

  • Three full day boat trips to Bartolome, North Seymour & South Plazas or Santa Fe Islands

Our guests

I can not imagine a more perfect trip to the Galapagos nor a more perfect place to stay than the Semilla Verde Boutique Hotel.
Estelle311Beyond Wonderful!
As their name says, this is a Boutique Hotel - just 9 rooms. Don't expect 24 hour room service or suchlike, but expect to be welcomed as a treasured guest and looked after superbly by General Manager Cattya or Owner Robert Grimstone, and their team.

What an amazing view, right from our beds, over the jungle-y property. And in the morning at sunrise! Wow.
