Ride wave upon wave of luxury and adventure, exploring Ecuador’s coastline by yacht

Calling all adventurers; a new way to experience luxury travel is here. Kontiki Wayra is a boutique sea expedition that offers the chance to explore intriguing Ecuador, while being enveloped in luxury on a state-of-the-art motor yacht. 

Step onto Kontiki Wayra’s sleek decks and prepare to be immersed in a sensory haven. Her exclusive staterooms are sustainably designed - down to the smallest detail - to provide a contemporary space to relax while you take in the panoramic views. Mood lighting, warm wood tones and huge walk-in showers take the nautical experience to new heights. Just outside your stateroom Kontiki Wayra’s serene outside spaces are yours to explore. Lie back and soak up the Ecuadorian sunshine on soft loungers in the Chill Parlour. Sip an organic cocktail at the bar. Or a glass of chilled champagne in the Jacuzzi, enjoying your prime vantage point across the waves. 

Life on board Kontiki Wayra can be as active - or supine - as you desire. A team of ten crew are on hand to arrange kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkelling straight from the deck. Or, after strolling the decks, retreat to the yacht’s intimate spa and allow the therapists to work their magic. Relaxation extends to dining on Kontiki Wayra as you enjoy exemplary organic delicacies without even leaving the yacht. But should you decide to go exploring, the authentic experiences you can enjoy from Kontiki Wayra are unparalleled.

Kontiki Wayra Sustainability

Exploration with a conscience

During your journey with Kontiki Wayra you can experience life-changing moments that respect the world we live in. Discover local communities in a way that respects their culture while immersing you in their traditions. Explore the coastline of Ecuador in its majestic glory with guides who are passionate about the natural environment.

Kontiki Wayra Wildlife

An extraordinary ecosystem

Step off Kontiki Wayra and onto Isla de la Plata, an uninhabited island off Ecuador’s coast. This is nature’s playground, where sea tortoises and several species of boobies make their home on land. Giant rays glide under the surface, while from June to October groups of migrating humpback whales put on playful - and unforgettable - acrobatic displays.

Kontiki Wayra Guayaquil

A bohemian beauty

The final stop on Kontiki Wayra’s voyage, the city of Guayaquil is known as La Perla del Pacifico (Pacific’s Pearl). Lose yourself among the colourful bohemian streets of Las Peñas, a historic colonial neighbourhood. Take in its vibrant culture from galleries and coffee shops. Then, once the caffeine kicks in, brave the 444 steps that lead up to a lighthouse and spectacular city views.
Kontiki Wayra

Marimba in the mangroves

Explore the Afro-American community of Mompiche on one of Kontiki Wayra’s extraordinary stops. Artisan fishermen will welcome you with friendly smiles and share their traditions, and their Marimba music. You can wander the mangroves and pick your own ‘concheo’ shellfish to enjoy later for dinner back on board. Or explore the beach and private nature reserve on horseback.

Food And Drinks

In keeping with Kontiki Wayra’s ethos, dining on board has a focus on sustainability and respect for nature. Local, organic produce is turned into gourmet creations by a team of on-board chefs, overseen by Executive Chef Cecilia Cedeño. If you’re celebrating a special moment, dine on shore under swaying palms by candlelight, or take a carefully put together picnic to a private spot in a nature reserve.


The spa on Kontiki Wayra is a small but perfectly formed retreat. Enjoy personalised treatments from highly-skilled on board therapists whenever you need a little down-time. Or kick things up a notch and stay active on the high seas with a session in the fitness centre, with unforgettable workout views. The Jacuzzi on deck is the spot to relax with a drink and take in picture-perfect Ecuadorian sunsets.
