Pikaia Lodge


“Our family has been to the magical Galapagos before, but this has to have been our best experience by far. As soon as we arrived, we felt so appreciated, met with welcome drinks and smiles. The first thing the kids noticed as soon as we walked into the lobby was the infinity pool outside. It’s just all so beautiful. We were shown to our room complete with a terrace and again the view, I can’t stop thinking about it. Even better was the food. We all loved the tuna dishes, which are locally caught and served fresh.

Breakfast was bountiful as well, accompanied by Galapagos sourced coffee. The chef has personally built the wine collection to match his menu, with selections from Spain, Chile and Argentina. The real draw here though of course, are the tours. The day trips on their boat, Pikaia 1, were well organized and included visits to beautiful islands and fabulous snorkeling. Our guide Socrates was amazing and taught us so much about the islands, you can tell how passionate he is about what he does. The boat trips are with the same group each time, and we were fortunate enough to make great friends with two other families with children similar ages. All around this is something that we will never forget and so happy that our children got to experience it!”

Great for
A family adventure unlike any other holiday.

With whom
Take the whole family. It was so amazing to see it all through our children’s eyes.

Memorable moment
Every day is full, but the spa is open until 10. We had amazing massages at the end of each day which is nice after a day of adventure.

Best time to go
Summer is best.

Be aware
The lodge is a trek, about 35 minutes from anywhere you are going with no nightlife around. However, this wasn’t missed by us as we had early rises every morning with the kids.

Rooms start at $2,000 per night, depending on rates and availability.
