- Te Miro Oone S/N, Easter Island, Chile
The LEED certified Explora Rapa Nui Lodge Easter Island hotel is both stylish and environmentally friendly. It was constructed to ensure its impact on the culture and ecosystem of Rapa Nui – the most remote inhabited island in the world – is kept to a minimum.
The hilltop situated lodge offers comfortable and well-appointed distraction-free suites with spectacular views. A few meters from the lodge you will find an open area with swimming pool, solar-heated Jacuzzi and bar. To one side and connected with this area by a walkway is the Hare Taheta Wellness Hut, where guests enjoy various types of massage and wellness services with essential oils.
The Lodge is a TV-free zone. Instead, the expansive views and welcoming climate beckon you outdoors, where a wide range of explorations around the island include the famous Moai carved-stone statues. After a day spent exploring the island, dine on fresh, local food based on the best-quality ingredients, many of which are produced locally. It is healthy and well-balanced, ideal for people going trekking or on explorations by bicycle or at sea.
Easter Island is located 1500 miles off the coast of Chile, and is reached by air, mostly commonly from Santiago, Chile (five hour flight), but can also be reached from Tahiti (Papeete) (5 hours).
UNESCO World Heritage Site
Easter Island is home to the Rapa Nui National Park. A World Heritage Site is a destination or place deemed a “special cultural or physical significance” as established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). “Rapa Nui National Park … concentrates the legacy of the Rapa Nui culture. This culture displayed extraordinary characteristics that are expressed in singular architecture and sculpture within the Polynesian context. From the 10th to the 16th century this society built shrines and erected enormous stone figures known as moai , which created an unrivalled cultural landscape that continues to fascinate people throughout the world.” — UNESCO
