Guy Harvey adds Galapagos hotel to portfolio

By Gay Nagle Myers
Guy Harvey Outpost Resorts, operator of eco-lodges in Florida and the Bahamas, has expanded into the Galapagos Islands.

The company has taken over management of the Iguana Crossing Boutique Hotel, a 14-unit property that sits in the shadow of the Wolf Volcano on Isabela Island.

Isabela Island is the only natural penguin habitat in the Northern Hemisphere.

On San Cristobal Island, Guy Harvey plan to open the new 30-unit Guy Harvey Outpost Lodge in early 2016.

The Galapagos Archipelago, designated a national park in 1959, consists of 120 islands and rock outcroppings.

Development is restricted to four islands; live-aboard ships are limited to 100 passengers each, and visits are restricted to 116 designated land and dive sites.

Guy Harvey Outpost Resorts operates the Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbour at West End on Grand Bahama Island and the Green Turtle Club and Blackfly Bonefish Lodge, both in the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas.

The company has one Florida resort, TradeWinds Sandpiper Suites in St. Pete Beach.

Other developments are planned for Islamorada in the Florida Keys, the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica.
