Hotel Overview

Where

At the water’s edge on Robinson Crusoe Island, 3.5km from San Juan Bautista town.

Rooms at Crusoe Island Lodge

There are 15 rooms and suites at the hotel, which look out over Bay Pangal. The earthy colour palette, wooden furnishings and private terraces makes this hotel a rather special retreat on the island. Choose from a Crusoe or Pangal room; the latter are slightly smaller but just as lovely.

Food and facilities

Lobster fishing is a huge part of island life here, so these will certainly be on the menu – you can even go out and catch them yourself. The restaurant, La Breca, serves delicious seafood and organic vegetables in a cosy, inviting setting: there’s also an adjacent lounge with a library and striking fireplace. As well as the spring water swimming pool, Crusoe Island Lodge has a sauna and outdoor hot tub overlooking Cumberland Bay.

Activities at Crusoe Island Lodge

It’s all about the great outdoors on this extraordinary island: hiking, bird-watching and horseback riding are the best way to explore the land and its wildlife. Climb to Alexander Selkirk’s lookout point or hideout cave; this was the stranded Scotsman who was a castaway on the island for more than four years, and the inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s legendary novel, Robinson Crusoe. Meanwhile out at sea, scuba diving is a thrilling experience with 12 dive zones to visit. Many species are endemic and are frequently spotted by divers, including the Juan Fernandez firecrown and Juan Fernandez fur seal, among others.
