This has been one of the most exquisite experiences I ever had related to luxury hotels. Explora Rapa Nui offers you a royal-like experience, respecting all the landscape around and the history of Rapa Nui people.

Unlike the "1 star" couple who had a terrible experience, ours was fantastic. We were told ahead of time we could not stay at the Explora property as the generator system was out and we too were offered the alternative Hanga Roa Eco Lodge for a place to stay. We had no problems with that whatsoever. Explora delivered the full...

We left Explora on 10th March. THE HOTEL REMAINED CLOSED. IT HAS BEEN SHUT SINCE JANUARY. I feel its important to shout this as Explora have gone out of their way to lie and hide this fact. Accidents happen, it’s how you deal with them that sets people apart. Explora chose to lie. Repeatedly. We learnt the hotel was closed...

We learned two days before leaving for a two week tour of Argentina and Chile that the resort was closed. We chose to accept their offer of a replacement hotel and were very happy with the service and the guides provided for the hikes that we chose during the four night stay. They were very attentive to the amount of...

I stayed at the explora Rapa Nui for four nights in January and could not have been happier with the service. The guides were excellent, the food was wonderful and they catered nicely to my special needs. And I loved my room with its view of the ocean and the volcano craters. I could actually have stayed an additional night...

If customer service was an extreme sport, explora would win all the medals! The Rapa Nui property had a fire disabling the behind the scenes services that support the guest facilities. Although they were compelled to close their operations, they arranged find other places for their guests to stay in Rapa Nui, and continued to deliver the full explora experience....

Although we were not able to stay at the Explora hotel, the staff went to great measures to assure our comfort. The guides and expeditions were superb. The island is magical. There was a great deal of flexibility to meet our requests.

The mark of a great hotel is the way it handles a problem. When Explora Rapa Nui emailed to say that they had lost all their generator systems and it would not be possible for us to stay there, we replied that our itinerary in South America made it vital that we came to Easter Island. Whilst some people were...

This was a trip that held many surprises. Much more than fascinating stone statues and intriguing history, the island is a wonderful blend of perfect climate, gorgeous nature, hills, valleys, sky and ocean.

We were due to stay here last week and were alarmed to be told that fire where the generators were housed had forced them to close for some time due to loss of power. However, the management and staff went out of their way, above and beyond to find us alternative accommodation on the island, and to liaise with us...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our lodge was the first in South America to obtain LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the United States Green Building Council.Our lodge, which opened in December 2007, was built on 9.6 Hectares (23.7 Acres) of land situated on a hill in the Te Miro Oone area, and overlooks the ocean. This is in south-eastern Rapa Nui, 8 kilometers (4.9 Miles) from Hanga Roa, the most populated part of the island.All of the 30 rooms, which extend to the north and south from a central building, have excellent ocean views. The lodge has welcoming indoor spaces which integrate aspects of the local culture.The design is intended to have minimal impact on its surroundings. The lodge is built on a site which is inappropriate for agricultural use and has no archaeological remains. The flora surrounding the lodge has been maintained intact. ... more   less
