The Royal Palm is a unique secluded hideaway nestled in the lush highlands of Santa Cruz Island in the heart of the Galapagos. Exclusive, spacious, and tastefully designed, the Royal Palm was built to complement this natural paradise. Authentically constructed of local materials and handcrafted furniture that reflect the environment, this is as close to nature as luxury will allow.

The Royal Palm’s restaurant is the finest in the Galapagos and equal to any in Ecuador. It features the celebration of natural textures and organically shaped spaces throughout the hotel. The deep and bright colors of tropical woods used in floor design and elegant furniture, upholstered with fine fabrics, stand out in harmony against the natural white stucco walls and the towering jungle cathedral ceiling that is both a work of natural joinery and woven thatch. Natural bamboo and copper cleverly blend to enhance the effect. Large arched framed glass doorways open onto the surrounding grounds and highlands to give one the sense of enjoying a gourmet meal in both the best of the indoors and outdoors while the large skylight far above serves to bring sunlight and starlight down through ‘the canopy’ to the dining room floor.

Royal Palm’s lounge and bar offers the perfect place to relax at the end of a full day’s outing in the Galapagos. The Galapagos is a natural paradise where many curious and exotic creatures have never truly learned to fear humans. The amenities enhance that sense of an oasis of personal paradise.
