Perched on top of an extinct volcano in the highlands of Santa Cruz island with breathtaking views of the Savana and Pacific Ocean beyond, Pikaia Lodge enjoys a unique location within its own private giant tortoise reserve. Pikaia is the culmination of an ambitious project to create the most luxurious property the Galapagos has ever seen in a fully sustainable and environmentally conscious way. This impressive hotel is decorated in a smart, contemporary style with pieces of modern art and sculpture. All rooms feature panoramic floor to ceiling windows, huge bathrooms, luxury toiletries and all the modern amenities.
A bold architectural design, immaculate suites and a spectacular location, Pikaia sets new standards for luxury in the Galapagos
