Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The luxurious Origin cruises around the spectacular Galapagos Islands. 

Rooms onboard Origin

There are 10 deluxe staterooms, all on the main deck, with TVs, private bathrooms and large windows framing the panoramic island and ocean views. As well as the option of triple rooms, the cabins can also be connected, making them ideal for families.

Food & Drink

The chefs are expertly trained to bring you delicious gourmet delicacies - both Ecuadorian and Peruvian, as well as international dishes - which can be enjoyed on the shaded sun deck or in the spacious dining room, washed down with complimentary house wine and local beer at dinner. Tantalise your tastebuds further with a cooking demonstration.


There are spacious indoor and outdoor areas with sun decks for relaxing and taking in the views. Hop in the Jacuzzi, sway in a hammock or cosy up in the library with a book about the Galapagos. There’s also a fitness centre onboard if you fancy a workout. As the sun sets, head back out on deck for some night-time stargazing. 

Activities onboard Origin

The Origin's highly-trained naturalist guides are on hand to help you make the most of your Galapagos trip. Discover these beautiful wildlife-rich islands and beaches on scenic nature walks, taking in the incredible variety of wildlife, including birds, reptiles, plants and volcanoes. You will have the opportunity to do some spectacular wildlife spotting – see tortoises, the gentle giants of the Galapagos, as well as penguins, marine iguanas and birds such as blue-footed boobies and red-chested frigate birds.

Swim, snorkel and kayak around the islands, and experience rides in a Zodiac boat around cliffs and mangroves - and
 make use of the ship's kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and snorkels to explore the incredible marine life. Back 
onboard, relax in one of the hammocks or treat yourself to a massage after a day of thrilling adventures in the Galapagos.

There is a range of specialised cruises available, including yoga cruises on selected departures, where you can start the morning with a yoga session with an expert before a day of adventures in the Galapagos - ask us for details!
