Manany is tourism expert and Wilson architect, both Ecuadorian. We both love being close to nature and know from own experience the expectations and needs of our guests. We speak Spanish, English and a little French.
The eco lodge is located outside the small town of Puerto Villamil on Isabela Island in the Galapagos, next to a mangrove area protected by the Ramsar Convention and very close to the lagoon Concha de Perla - a tourist attraction for snorkeling in which you can see tropical fish, sea lions, penguins, rays, marine turtles and over 20 different species of birds.
Isabela is the biggest Island of the Galapagos Archipelago. The island offers a variety of tourist attractions, e.g. daily tours to Las Tintoreras, the Volcanoes and los Túneles, etc. If our guests want to relax, they can just walk on the white sand beach near to the lodge.
Apartments and Suite The Eco lodge offers three fully equipped accommodations with kitchen and TV. Two large apartments are located in the new building and each can accommodate up to 6 guests. All apartments have superior quality standard, panoramic windows and large terraces. The suite is in a wooden house on the ground floor and can accommodate up to 3 guests. The suite has a living room area, American style kitchen, a bedroom with one big bed or two separate beds and a private bathroom. To give our guests the most comfortable stay, all areas are totally furnished with top quality artisan furniture. The suite has spacious terraces outside. The house has a look-out tower from which you can contemplate the sea and the marvelous landscape and have moments of peace, inspiration and relaxation in the hammock.

Why Isabela Island: Chez Manany Galapagos Ecolodge is not only a marvelous place to stay but it is also responsible to the environment. One of our main goals is to support the conservation of the Islands and encourage awareness about its unique ecosystem, particularly Isabela, through sustainable approaches.
The first part of our project was to create an environmental-friendly house. The energy used for lighting is obtained through solar panels; the sewage water is treated through different systems. We separate grey water and black water, each has its own treatment plant with different sand filters and work with aerobic biological processes. Both of our buildings have their own treatment plant and by the end of the cycle we reuse the water in our gardens.
The water which comes from the municipality has also its own treatment in our house. We also use here different sand filters to clean the water of any unwanted particles or dirt and to kill all bacteria we have incorporated in our treatment plant an ozone cleaning system, which is more efficient than any other system known in the market to clean water. This clean water will be still salty but free of bacteria and ready for the use of our guests.
All rooms have enough natural light and ventilation through windows which have been previously planned and distributed in the apartments. There is no need of Air-condition or extra energy consumption.
It is also important to mention that Chez Manany only works with biodegradable cleaning products not only because of our principles but because our sewage water treatment plant works with biological process and any use of toxic or chemical substances may interfere with this process. We strongly request our guests not to throw any toxic or chemical substance into the toilets or sinks.
In the second phase of our project we would like to focus our strengths in Environmental education as well as for our guests and the local people of Isabella Island specially children and women.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Enjoy your trip knowing that your foot print will be minimum while staying with us!
