Highlights of Pikaia Lodge

  • Galapagos Pikaia Lodge is the most exclusive lodging available today at the Galapagos Islands. Designed with the highest level of comfort and services that can be provided within the limitations of such a remote, restricted and eco-sensitive location.
  • Even the location of Pikaia is picture perfect! Perched on the edge of an extinct volcanic crater, the panoramic views are simply stunning. Floor to ceiling windows allow guests to enjoy the spectacle from the comfort of their own rooms or terraces.
  • From the highlands of Santa Cruz island, Pikaia Lodge is the perfect base to relax in style, and explore the best Galapagos National Park sites on nearby islands. Guests don’t have to wander far to spot wildlife; giant Galapagos tortoises roam the 31 hectare private Pikaia reserve.
  • The Evolution Restaurant serves up Ecuadorian fusion gastronomy, with access to an excellent wine cellar. The Homo Sapiens Explorers Lounge is another a popular guest hang-out, equipped with a large 3D HD-TV screen, 3D goggles, and a library dedicated to science & evolution at the Galapagos Islands.
  • For relaxation and rejuvenation, check out the views from Pikaia’s infinity pool and sun deck, or book a massage treatment at the wellness center.
  • Enjoy all of the above with the official stamp of quality of the Relais & Chateaux hotel and restaurant brand. Members are committed to preserving local heritage and the environment, while guaranteeing excellence in service.
