Rooms & Suites: 30
Located on mythical Easter Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, explora en Rapa Nui - Posada de Mike Rapu - is located on a hill in the Te Miro Oone sector, on 9.6 hectares of land that faces the sea.
The hotel is situated in the southwestern zone of the island, 5.6 km from Hanga Roa -- the only town on the island – and it acts as a base for exploring this attractive and mysterious island, home to a culture whose origins and evolution remain unexplained. Volcanic rock, native to the island and always used by the island's inhabitants in construction, and wood from the mainland are the principal materials. The hotel has 30 guestrooms that spread out from central areas that house reception, living areas, a bar, kitchen and services. Next to the common areas is the Casa de Baños Hare Vai, with a pool, massage salon and open-air Jacuzzis. The closest inhabited island is Pitcairn, 1,900 km northwest, and Easter Island's surface is less than 170 square Kms. (46 square miles). It is a perfect triangle whose maximum length is 24 km and its maximum width only 12 km. With its location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and home to a culture whose origins and evolution are still largely unknown, Easter Island is an attractive and mysterious destination. A mild year-round climate allows for walking the island's geography and traveling along the coast of numerous ahus that are home to the gigantic sculptures called moai. Who, when and why were these sculptures created? It is a mystery. It is presumed that the island has been inhabited since the earliest centuries of our times, and the moai are hundreds of years old. Today visitors can share with the descendents of this ancient culture and who preserve their ancestral customs in the face of the advancement of Western civilization.
