Cool Pools: Pikaia Lodge


By: Five Star Alliance

The pool at Pikaia Lodge is on the top plateau of the crater and is centered amongst the exteriors of the main building. The infinity pool merges with the horizon with the back drop of the endless ocean and the pristine savanna – a mesmerizing sight. With its surrounding decks plastered with peruvian travertine marble and furnished with comfortable beach chairs, the pool is strategically placed to receive the sun, shadow free the entire day to maintain a pleasant water temperature. Guests can take a refreshing dip or do some laps for exercise. There is a covered terrace next to the pool where guests can enjoy meals and drinks without having to change.

At the eastern end, on the very edge of the main crater there is a covered gazebo with two sofas for napping, reading or quiet contemplation. At night the pool and decks are softly illuminated, creating a tranquil ambiance.
