Halfway between Chile and Tahiti, surrounded by the clearest and
deepest waters of the Pacific Ocean, Easter Island is more than
1200 miles from…anything. Indeed, this volcanic Polynesian
island has been known for centuries as the navel of the world.
Remoteness breeds mystery, and visitors will find plenty to unravel
in the standing stone statues known as Moai, the world’s most
inscrutable archaeological enigma.
Explora Rapa Nui is located on a tranquil spot ideal for experiencing the island’s mystical pull and dramatic isolation. Its award winning architecture was inspired by the desire for sustainability and respect for the island’s unique geography and heritage, while offering visitors the rare luxury of a close encounter with its natural state.
