Pinnacle of Galapagos Luxury
Pikaia Lodge is the most luxurious property in the Galapagos.
Completed in 2014, Pikaia has since earned a reputation for comfort, cuisine, and top-notch excursions.
Guests of the hotel have their choice of programs, ranging between three and seven nights in length. These programs include meals, land transportation, and guided tours on land and sea.
“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.”
The lodge also offers two motor yachts, for exclusive use by guests. The Pikaia I is a 105-foot yacht with electronic stabilizers, hot tub, sun-deck, air conditioning, eight private cabins, and a wet bar.
Refurbished in 2017, this vessel is used for guest day trips to nearby islands and beaches.
For lighter duty trips, the hotel dispatches Pikaia II. This yacht is a 35-footer, used for half-day artisanal fishing trips for up to eight guests.
