Explora Rapa Nui is studded on the remote, mysterious Easter Island, far-flung out into the Pacific Ocean from the coast of Chile. This boutique lodge invites you to contemplate the myths that shroud the legendary island of Rapa Nui, while indulging in the luxury cocoon that is Explora. The hotel itself is hewn from stone and recycled wood, crafted into round structures that lie low to the ground and minimize environmental impact. Facing the ocean, and encircled by rolling farmland, you’ll find yourself delightfully secluded yet just a few minutes away from the island’s main town, Hanga Roa. The essence of Explora Rapa Nui is the chance to uncover the archaeology, culture and nature of the island, with the help of passionate local experts. They’ll take you on guided excursions to see the awe-inspiring Moai statues, and on adventure activities like biking and even scuba diving.
