In the middle of the Pacific Ocean, about 3,500 km from the mainland of Chile, lies Easter Island with its famous stone figures - the Moais. Carved out of volcanic stone centuries ago, they served as worship figures of the divine ancestors. The hotel explora Rapa Nui awaits you with unusual architecture and a sensational view of the Pacific - far away from any civilization. Easter Island has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1955, and the explora lodge strives to preserve the surrounding culture and nature. You will quickly realize that explora Rapa Nui is not just a hotel; it is a complete experience in perfect harmony and mysticism on the island.
As Easter Island is called by its inhabitants, Rapa Nui translates into something like “Big Island.” Did you know that the island is the most remote place on earth? From Chile, it’s about 3,500 km to Rapa Nui, and only about 2,000 km to the east is Pitcairn, the nearest spot on earth. You can feel like Robinson Crusoe here. In the middle of the island lies the Posada de Mike Rapu, not far from Hanga Roa, the only town on Easter Island. The hotel opened in 2007 and was embedded in the landscape with attention to detail. Lots of wood, volcanic rock, and other natural building materials take center stage here. Relax with a pisco sour in hand at the bar with a covered terrace, or indulge in culinary delights in the restaurant after an eventful day. The in-house fruit and vegetable garden provides the freshest ingredients.
