Pikaia Lodge

In a unique setting on the crater of an extinct volcano, 450 metres above sea level, eco-friendly Pikaia Lodge provides guests with the unique opportunity to explore the fascinating natural heritage of the Galapagos Islands while staying in sheer comfort. The hotel operates daily land and sea tours on their private yacht, has its own giant tortoise reserve as well as a beautiful pool, a gourmet restaurant, a bar and a relaxing spa.

The rooms and villas at Pikaia Lodge are nestled on top of the small plateau of the main crate, between the savannah and the tropical misty forest of the volcanic highlands. As such they provide one of the most spectacular views on the Galapagos incorporating mountains, forests, volcanoes and the sea. Lie on a daybed by the pool and absorb the scenery. Then further unwind with a purifying body massage in the spa.

Go on a land exploration programme and discover the endemic wildlife. Visit the Charles Darwin Scientific Research Centre. Or, take a trip on the hotel yacht and enjoy hiking or snorkelling followed by sunbathing on the deck or watching out for dolphins. The next day, head to Santa Fe on Pikaia Lodge’s yacht to watch sea lions, iguanas, lava lizards, Darwin’s finches, swallow-tail gulls and petrels. At the end of the day, relax in the EVOLUTION restaurant and enjoy the sophisticated menu inspired by a unique fusion of Peruvian and Ecuadorian cuisine.
