Perched on top of two extinct volcanic craters on the island of Santa Cruz, Pikaia Lodge is a simply stunning Galapagos eco-escape that has to be seen to be believed. An ambitious blend of cutting-edge sustainable technology and five-star levels of comfort and service, it is both one of the eco-friendliest and most luxurious ways to experience the Galapagos archipelago. With floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces, the spacious rooms and suites give uninterrupted views of Santa Cruz's dramatic volcanic landscape (as well as the giant tortoises that wander the grounds).
Throughout, enormous marble-lined bathrooms, bamboo floors and natural ventilation keep the atmosphere cool and comfortable. Spend your days exploring the unique marine and land environments of the Galapagos on individually tailored excursions, or just take in the views from Pikaia's stunning infinity pool. To recharge, head to the Evolution restaurant for delicious dishes like rock octopus with chimichurri and paprika and tuna tartare in Ecuadorean marinade, along with fine wines chosen by hand from the air-conditioned walk-in cellar.
