“For those seeking a land-based Galapagos experience rather than the typical sailing experience, Pikaia Lodge is a luxurious and stylish property. Witness stunning views across Santa Cruz island from its location on the edge of an extinct volcano crater within 30 plus hectares of private land (which is also home to private wild giant tortoise reserve). Pikaia offers daily land-based activities, and there’s the chance to explore nearby islands by the hotel’s private yacht.”
Pikaia Lodge is situated on Santa Cruz, in the centre of Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands. This newly opened luxury boutique hotel is nestled in 31 hectares of lush tropical forest in a giant tortoise reserve, at the top of an extinct volcano crater. It provides environmentally conscious travellers a new alternative for exploring these remarkable islands, offering the highest level of comfort and luxury.
The contemporary-style eco-lodge has been designed in harmony with the natural surroundings and combines stunning accommodation with impressive facilities such as pool and a spa. It will appeal to those seeking a secluded and unforgettable escape for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
The lodge provides 14 spacious and ultra-stylish rooms and suites designed with maximum comfort and privacy in mind. All rooms feature contemporary décor and balconies or terraces from which to enjoy the jaw-dropping views.
Due to its central location, it makes an ideal base from which to explore the Archipelago and there are endless unforgettable experiences to be had on land and on water. Discover deserted beaches; go hiking; cycling, kayaking or snorkeling; or get up close to an incredible array of indigenous wildlife. After a tiring day, it’s time to relax; laze by the pool; sip a cocktail in the bar as you admire the spectacular scenery; or indulge in a massage.
