Villa Tortuga

Tomáš Safarik

Private Consultant
"A modern exclusive-use villa in a breathtaking location, where you can slow down and explore the Galapagos at your own pace. No rush, no agenda, no connection except the one you make with the wild. It can be a perfect choice for large families and groups of friends. "

Stay at the Villa Tortuga

Your private villa. Red cedar furniture, marble furnishings, four en-suite bedrooms and giant tortoises wandering the grounds. A home away from home on a landscape populated by rare wildlife. A place to disconnect and reconnect with mother nature. Villa Tortuga is a new concept in the Galapagos, an exclusive-use villa complete with a naturalist guide to arrange your ad-hoc activities. It offers privacy and modern luxury living, in a wild destination where modern luxuries are hard to find.


Villa Tortuga occupies its own private reserve, on a landscape populated by giant tortoises and rare birds. It’s remote and you have the feeling of being out in nature, detached from the everyday world.


Built to green housing standards in a contemporary style, the four-bedroom villa is as exclusive as it gets on the Galapagos. It’s filled with natural light and wide-open spaces, with various areas for coming together as a group. Two housekeeping staff and a private chef assist with everything you need in and around the property.

Who is it for

Perfect for large families and groups of up to eight people. The minimum stay is five nights, so choose Villa Tortuga as a base for exploring the islands, rather than a supplement to a cruise. Almost all Galapagos itineraries are fixed in advance of your stay, but Villa Tortuga has a far more flexible approach, with a concierge arranging things to do based on a whim.

Amenities & Activities

It’s not uncommon for the villa’s owner to be your concierge for a week, such is the premium placed on organising a complex and tailored activity program. From diving to kayaking, hiking to surfing, yoga to massages and art classes, almost every Galapagos activity is available from here. So create your own program of wildlife observation, exploration and wellness, based on how you feel each day.
