Formally the Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa, the property was acquired in 2020 by the opulent Nayara Resorts collection, who hitherto specialised and excelled in Costa Rica’s high-end hotel industry. The result of this partnership is a superb resort offering a luxurious, all-inclusive stay on Easter Island, that gives the established Explora Rapa Nui a run for their money!
For a number of years, Explora Rapa Nui stood head and shoulders above the competition on Rapa Nui, almost like one of the giant Moai statues to which visitors flock to see. More recently, other luxury hotels have opened on the island; yet Explora arguably remains the top pick.
Inez and Lucas spent their fourth trip with us exploring Chile and Easter Island. They started in Chile's winelands, moving on to Patagonia, heading out to Easter Island, back to the Atacama Desert and back via the astronomy centre at Antofagasta. Whew! It was quite a trip and they have very kindly allowed us to feature just a handful of their fantastic photos on the site.
Connie and Jerald did a big trip to Chile in February 2017, visiting the Torres del Paine, the Lake District, the Atacama Desert and Easter Island.
Anne and Mike planned a superb trip to Easter Island and beyond over the course of a few weeks in February. Please see their very kind and detailed feedback below:
