explora Rapa Nui is located just five minutes from Mataveri airport on Easter Island, also known as Isla de Pascua or Rapa Nui. The Island is situated 2200 miles west of the Chilean coast in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and can be reached in five hours by air from Santiago.
About This Hotel
explora Rapa Nui, an all-inclusive resort situated on Easter Island in the middle of the Pacific, puts travelers at the doorstep of one of the most remote and mysterious destinations on the planet.
The Posada de Mike Rapu lodge at Explora Rapa Nui, a uniquely designed hilltop structure, offers 30 comfortable suites, all of which feature ocean views.
The Posada's intimate, TV-free rooms, along with swimming pool, jacuzzi, and massage hut, ensure maximal relaxation, while the building's LEED-certified construction ensures its impact on the culture and ecosystem of Rapa Nui - the remotest inhabited island in the world - is minimal.
While the rooms are inviting, the expansive views and temperate climate will soon beckon you outdoors, where a wide range of explorations around the island await. Chief among these is a visit to the famous Moai carved-stone statues, whose origins and significance remain a mystery to this day.
Likewise, the island itself, first settled by Polynesian mariners in the Seventh century and a UNESCO World Heritage Site today, is sure to leave you thirsting for more.
