Hotels on Easter Island

Introduction to Easter Island

Imagine a Pacific Island made up of rolling green hills and beaches, some sandy, some covered with eroded lava rock. Instead of trees, the land is studded with oversized stone statues, their eyes facing the ocean, ever mindful of the relentless waves. No one is really sure how the trees disappeared and how the statues were carved and moved. When you visit Easter Island, part of Chile in South America, and listen to the tales of the elders, they just might give you a hint or two. Skyscanner can help you find the cheapest hotel rates, airfares and even help with a rental car. Go ahead and book that dream trip and learn about the mysteries of Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui.

Things to Do on Easter Island

Roughly 600 Moi, the Rapa Nui name for the stone statues, dot the Easter Island landscape. More than half are in the Rano Raraku quarry, some close to completion, others left where they fell during transport. The centrepiece of the island is Rapa Nui National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park circles the island except for the town of Hanga Roa on the south-western end. You'll find Moi lining cliffs and standing in pocket valleys, forever keeping watch of their island.

On the south-western tip of Rapa Nui is Orongo, a restored ancient village that's now a historic landmark. This was the land of the Birdman Cult, a people that held a dangerous race every year to bring a sooty tern egg back intact from Moto Nui, a nearby islet. Winners were honoured so despite the possibility of falling off a 300-metre cliff, there were many participants. Entrance to Orongo is included with your admission fee to Rapa Nui National Park.

Enjoy a night at the Ballet Kari Kari in Hanga Roa and you'll notice the Polynesian influence. Think luau, but then turn it up a notch, several notches in fact. Costumes are bold, dancing is warrior-fierce and the music is almost hedonistic. Take in the dinner/show combination or just go for the entertainment.

Getting To and Around Easter Island

Mataveri International Airport (IPC) is in the town of Hanga Roa, less than two kilometres from the city centre. Thanks to NASA's plan to use the airport as an emergency landing strip for the shuttle, the lengthened runway can handle wide-bodied aircraft. LATAM Airlines, based in Chile, is the major carrier, offering flights from Santiago de Chil. Car rentals are available at the airport, with counters near baggage claim. Taxis are outside the arrival doors. Fares are flat rate, costing $6.00 CAD from the airport into town, less the tip. It costs about $4.00 CAD for any trip within Hanga Roa. Accepted currency is the Chilean Peso.

Hotels on Easter Island

  • Most hotels are clustered around Hanga Roa. One exception is the Explora Rapa Nui, on the more rural eastern side of the island about six kilometres from town. The remote Eco-Friendly property is made up of gently flowing curved architectural features. An abundance of glass in the restaurant, lobby and rooms gives you a panoramic view of the sea and surrounding countryside. The idea is to get you to relax, to commune with nature. That means no televisions or Wi-Fi in the decidedly posh, modern rooms. If you need to get connected, access is available in the public areas. On the other hand, you could just head to the spa for a massage.
  • If you'd rather stay in town, try the equally luxurious Hangaroa Eco Village and Spa. With architecture reminiscent of the Polynesian style, this property is a cluster of smaller buildings, each with an environmentally friendly grass roof. Its oceanfront locale makes it the perfect spot to watch the sunset. Other properties in Hanga Roa that are more moderately priced include the Hotel Orongo, the Hotel Vai Moana and the laid-back Hotel O'Tai, a three-star charmer that's awash in tropical flowers and offers large comfortable rooms.
