Unique resort with a rustic appearance but first-class amenities and exceptional staff. Room was comfortable with a terrific view and a huge jet tub. Common areas were likewise very comfortable, but the real treat was the staff - the restaurant wait staff, the guides and especially bartender Magdalena, all of whom made every effort to ensure everybody in our group...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 April 2017

Explora Rapa Nui is located in a farm. As such, part of the fun was watching horses and cows gazing 3 feet away from our window in early morning. The building itself blended in the landscape and had a spectacular view to sun rise from the Pacific Ocean. The food was simply supreme - delicious, healthy, and well portioned. The...

This hotel very much resembles the best safari lodges we’ve been to in Kenia/Tanzania. The architecture is modern and the structures are all build with natural, local like materials - wood, stone, bare concrete in the rooms. It looks like the buildings mix with the surrounding nature and improve it. The pool and spa area are situated amongst a bunch...

We travelled to Explora Rapa Nui after experiencing the warm hospitality at Explora Patagonia right away. There was a huge difference, as there was no host nor manager to greet us at Explora Rapa Nui. Luckily, we still have a good guide, who happened to be the same guide (strange for Explora?!) for our 3 days there. The room is...

... but we had booked an expensive "suite" (in fact a larger room, normal rooms are rather small) and thought these "suites" would be located at each end of the two "wings" of the hotel. But unfortunately our room (N° 8) was just in the middle of one of the wings, and facing ... trees, and just behind we could...

Explora Rapa Nui is in a beautiful location on a magical island. The staff is courteous and accommodating, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the food is delicious. The guides that lead the daily explorations are well informed about the sites, and interested in ensuring that your questions are answered and needs are met. We travelled with two teenage...

Dear traveler, I would like to thank you very much for the kind words that glad us because our goal is to bring memorable experiences. However, we apologize for any inconvenient caused by the lack of our spa services. Our maintenance and engineering area had a carefully laid out plan to upgrade the swimming pool during February when the hotel...

We were told to expect modest accommodation on Easter Island. explora Rapa Nui was very good on all counts. Accommodation was very good, food was of high quality and the standard was far better than we had been advised.

Not only do you get to see a side of Easter Island that you don't get from National Geographic, you get to know and experience life and history on the island. If you love history and going on hikes, Explora has the tours and packages for you.

Facility is good, the price includes all excursions. We were there at the low season. No host no manager. Although the excursion guide was excellent, but our boat trip was cancelled due to 'weather condition' which was not true. We saw other boats were out. No alternative trips was offered. Swimming pool and the spa were closed with no reason....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our lodge was the first in South America to obtain LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the United States Green Building Council.Our lodge, which opened in December 2007, was built on 9.6 Hectares (23.7 Acres) of land situated on a hill in the Te Miro Oone area, and overlooks the ocean. This is in south-eastern Rapa Nui, 8 kilometers (4.9 Miles) from Hanga Roa, the most populated part of the island.All of the 30 rooms, which extend to the north and south from a central building, have excellent ocean views. The lodge has welcoming indoor spaces which integrate aspects of the local culture.The design is intended to have minimal impact on its surroundings. The lodge is built on a site which is inappropriate for agricultural use and has no archaeological remains. The flora surrounding the lodge has been maintained intact. ... more   less
