Montemar Eco Luxury Villas

In the highlands of Santa Cruz Island, Montemar Eco Luxury Villas is located on a 43-acre private reserve where Galápagos giant tortoises roam freely. The owners, Roberto and Reyna, are local Galapagueños, and are a naturalist guide and National Geographic grantee, respectively. They offer the furthest thing from mass tourism possible—a value Extraordinary Journeys embodies.

There are only two villas here: the eight-guest, four-bedroom Villa Tortuga, and the four-guest, two-bedroom Villa Lechuza. Handsomely accented with local and endemic materials, each home-away-from-home is self-contained and features a lounge, kitchen, dining area, and a generous deck. Villas are serviced by a dedicated hospitality team, which includes housekeeping and a private chef.

Guest excursions are completely bespoke. Whether you are a foodie craving farm-to-table meals, a serious diver, or an enthusiastic birdwatcher, Roberto and Reyna will curate daily itineraries based on your interests, ambitions, and abilities.  


  • Sustainability in action: Montemar collects 100 per cent of its water from rainfall, generates 99 per cent of its energy from solar panels and solar water heaters, and grows its own organic produce and coffee.
  • Look out across the property to see wild horses and giant tortoises that freely roam the property.
  • Sip a fresh-brewed latte made with beans sourced from the on-site coffee plantation.
