Pikaia Lodge – Pure Luxury in the Galapagos Islands
Pikaia Lodge is the first luxury lodge built in the Galapagos Islands and provides the perfect combination of the great outdoors and also wonderful indoors.
The Incredible Galapagos Islands lie off the coast of Ecuador. Of course, we know researcher Charles Darwin made his historic visit to the Galapagos Islands back in 1835. Based on his observations of the island’s various species, Darwin developed his theory of evolution.
As a luxury eco-lodge, Pikaia Lodge on the uplands of beautiful Santa Cruz Island features 14 rooms. This luxury resort actually sits upon a plateau between the craters of two extinct volcano, but offers all the luxury amenities one expects for a high-end property.
Pikaia Lodge opened in October of 2014, but already has become a top destination for those you want to experience the wonders of the Galapagos Islands first hand. The lodge takes pride in being environmentally conscious and offers 270-degree views of the Pacific Ocean and neighboring islands of the Galapagos archipelago. The resort is also one of the most advanced green lodges found anywhere in the world.
The 76 acre estate was designed in a contemporary style and built from recyclable steel, beautiful natural stone and glass. The lodge floors are made from bamboo and the gorgeous furniture was made from Ecuadorian teak.
One of the impressive amenities is lodge guests can use a eight-cabin yacht that’s 100 foot in length. Named the M/Y Pikaia, take the air-conditioned, luxury yacht for an overnight excursion and cruise to the outer range of the reaches of the impressive Galapagos Islands.
One of the greatest treats about staying at this luxury lodge is the chance to see the famous giant tortoises in person. Pikaia Lodge even has its very own private Tortoise Reserve on their property.
