Secluded hotel overlooking the ocean, with boathouse-style cabins spread amongst beautiful tropical gardens.

The secluded Altiplanico is 3km out of the main town of Hanga Roa, overlooking the ocean. Designed in the style of traditional Easter Island boathouses, the individual cabins are arranged in semi-circles within beautiful tropical gardens of fruit trees and flowers, criss-crossed by trails leading down to the shore.

Rooms are stylishly decorated, with rustic bathrooms and beds raised on four-postered platforms, and have no TV or air-conditioning – all the better for you to appreciate the natural environment. There's a bar and restaurant, a sun-drenched terrace and a small plunge pool.

Our Expert's Opinion

This hotel is a little more remote as it's outside the main town, the advantage is that the location enables guests to look out over a beautiful stretch of coastline from the rooms, gardens and restaurant which serves excellent food.
