Exceptional first class hotel with a focus on unique experiences and a luxurious yet unassuming design aesthetic that seeks to blend in with the natural surroundings.

The exceptional first-class explora Rapa Nui, with its unassuming low-rise design blending subtly into the landscape, places its emphasis on enhancing your appreciation of the unique natural environment and atmosphere of Easter Island – one of the most remote places on Earth, and one of the most extraordinary. Treeless and windy, the island nonetheless possesses incredible beauty, and explora's experience-led approach is ideally suited to showcasing its appeal. 


You will be well looked after by the locally recruited staff, whose typically Polynesian shyness and unobtrusive personality are part of the place’s charm. The hotel buildings also mingle lavish comfort with modesty, built from wood and the volcanic stone which predominates here. 

explora specialises in its own completely unpretentious brand of luxury, with a focus on activities that reveal the special features of the surrounding area. Included in your stay is a tailored programme of excursions to all the island's celebrated sites and some less well-known ones. Our favourite is the trek to Hanga Oteo, winding along the rugged coastline past ahu platforms and toppled moai en route before arriving at the tropical paradise of Anakena beach to a picnic lunch.
