Taha Tai Hotel
Taha Tai Hotel offers relaxed, informal accommodation close to the Pacific shoreline in Easter Island
In common with most accommodation on Chile’s mid-Pacific Easter Island, TahaTai is an understated, unpretentious property with an informal and relaxing atmosphere. Close to Hanga Roa it is only a couple of minutes’ stroll from the seashore, and just 2km from the major archaeological site Ahu Tahai, where silent stone statues stand sentinel over a grassy plain.
The red-roofed main single-storey building houses bright and airy wood-panelled guest rooms, which have verandas and patio doors and beyond, down a gently-sloping path, the bar, dining room and compact cottage-style chalets. The rooms are simply furnished but have safes, TV and complimentary Wifi. There are serene ocean views from the restaurant and most rooms.
The hotel is set in breezy tropical gardens which host an outdoor pool with loungers, perfect for relaxing after a day out exploring.
What our clients say
We have had two of the most memorable weeks in one of the world’s most varied geographical environments and the friendly Chilean people. Thank you JLA.AK, Stoke Newington
Most Memorable Moment?: For me, Torres del Paine as it appeared and disappeared through the clouds. The Explora hotel is in a fantastic setting and the views of the mountains are stunning. For my wife, she loved the Atacama and the Moon Valley in particular. Walking through the valley when there were just the three of us was really memorable.JM, Hatfield
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the trip or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten degrees. As we approached the cruise time we wondered if we'd cope with the Zodiacs, but everyone was so helpful and safety conscious. The all-time highlight of so many on our holiday was, standing in silence at the Pia Glacier.RW, Cyprus
Patagonia's open spaces, clean air and stunning views. Chilean people were very friendly and helpful. Excellent food.MP, Hemel Hempstead
We have travelled a lot in our lifetime but nothing prepares you for the breadth of landscapes that you will encounter in Chile. We had three weeks there and felt we only scratched the surface.CM, Trowbridge
Highlight: "Easter Island for it's uniqueness and remoteness. Excellent wines and food in Mendoza and Casablanca Valley in Chile. The Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires was spectacular. The friendliness of people in Colonia."JR, Grimsby
