Pikaia Lodge

Hidden in a secluded location and nestled on top of an extinct volcano crater Pikaia Lodge is a stunning new alternative for exploring the "Last paradise on Earth" in a comfortable and truly sustainable land based way. Pikaia Lodge is on Santa Cruz Island in the centre of the Galapagos Archipelago. The Pikaia Lodge concept is designed for the environmentally conscious, eco-adventure traveler, who seeks intimate contact with the unique natural heritage of the Galapagos along with all the comforts of a highly evolved lifestyle. In fact, you will discover some of the finest beaches of the Galapagos near the lodge. Pikaia Lodge – The Galapagos, will be the first 5-star lodge in Ecuador to be designed, built and operated according to the highest LEED specifications, and is part of a larger project that aims to build a total of three such lodges. The Galapagos and its surrounding marine reserve, part of the Republic of Ecuador, is a UNESCO Natural World Heritage site. All spacious rooms and suites have panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows and private shaded terraces with breathtaking unobstructed views over the green-tinged volcanic landscape of Santa Cruz to the blue Pacific Ocean.
