The most sustainable hotel in Isabela Island
On top of being one of the most comfortable and friendly hotels in Puerto Villamil, Chez Manany puts a huge emphasis on sustainability.
Designed by the owners to be environmentally friendly, the property is made to be energy efficient:
“The architecture, which my husband is responsible for, is what we are most proud of. The design is unique, it works with the natural surroundings. For example, shade is naturally created and winds are captured in the architecture to keep the rooms cool. No air conditioning is necessary because of this”. – Manany, Owner.
Meanwhile, the property also grows vegetables in the garden and carries out strict waste management. It also proudly produces all indoor and outdoor lighting with the help of the Galapagos sun and its installed solar system.
But Chez Manany’s work in sustainability goes further than its own operations. Owners Manany and Wilson works with the wider community, spreading the message and encouraging a more sustainable approach to local tourism. Organising beach clean ups in cooperation with the national park and working with the local hotel association are some of the main activities the couple have initiated.
