Explora Rapa Nui combines local guides, local understanding and excursions providing guests with the opportunity to discover the mysteries and unique charm of Easter Island, the world’s most isolated island. Guests are reeled in with its award-winning architecture blending with the Easter island’s unique geography and heritage.
Rapa Nui (or "Big Rapa", as it is known among its inhabitants) is the most remote piece of land in the world. About 3,500km from the shores of Chile, Rapa Nui emerges from the Pacific Ocean with its volcanic cone shape. Being the cradle of a unique and enigmatic culture, the island continues to endure today under the watchful eyes of the enormous carved stone Moai. For its remoteness, geographical beauty, and rich culture, Rapa Nui was declared a Word Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995.
The details, the simplicity, and the real joys of life are central elements to your stay at Explora. Explora’s base is a hotel built to link man to the past, the present, and the mysteries of nature. Architecture is very important to the hotel—it is a medium through which they express permanence, freedom and safety.
The dishes at Explora Rapa Nui are designed to enable guests to ingest the correct amount of energy for a day full of exploring. The meals will have you feeling light, agile and healthy before your big day. Superb Chilean wine and premium wines must also be tried when staying at Explora Rapa Nui.
