Hotels:

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Hotels

Casa Gangotena, Quito

Glimpse the heart of old Quito as it was meant to be enjoyed, amidst the generous comforts of this handsomely restored mansion. Sumptuously appointed rooms bask in the warmth of natural light as towering windows overlook the Plaza San Francisco. Stately and sophisticated, yet perfectly intimate thanks to the Ecuadorean hospitality. View hotel website »

M/V Eclipse

One of the best ships sailing in the Galápagos Islands, the Eclipse is an upscale expedition vessel that offers unparalleled levels of comfort and service. Large enough to travel the Pacific in comfort and safety, small enough to dock at remote ports and negotiate inter-island landings with agility, the Eclipse is the perfect size for an expedition-style adventure and the choice for travelers who prefer the intimate, comfortable atmosphere and attentive service of a smaller boutique vessel to a larger cruise ship. She features outstanding open-air spaces, comfortable cabins, and spectacular al fresco dining. View hotel website »
