When Do You Want To Go?

Perfect base providing luxury accommodation and facilities

Explora is set on a hill overlooking the deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean in a spectacular location. This hotel acts as the perfect base for exploring this beautiful and mysterious island, the most remote inhabited island in the world and home to a culture whose origins and evolution remain unexplained.

In true Explora style, the hotel has been designed and constructed to fit with the surroundings of the island using volcanic rocks and pine wood from the mainland. It has also been designed to have a minimal impact on the environment. There is a main lodge at Explora Easter Island, called Posada de Mike Rapu, which houses relaxing living areas and a dining area, and outside you will find a beautiful pool area, heated open-air Jacuzzis, bar and the Hare Taheta massage room, where guests can indulge in a relaxing and therapeutic massage.

There are 30 very comfortable and stylish guest rooms and suites, all with a small living area, hydro-massage bath and particularly soft mattresses.

There are a range of fantastic daily explorations and excursions run by the lodge to experience and explore the fascinating culture, flora and fauna of the island. The excursions and activities range from gentle to more demanding, to suit all levels of ability and taste, and are accompanied by expert bilingual guides, the majority of whom are native Rapa Nui.


  • Amazing location overlooking the ocean

  • Luxurious rooms and facilities

  • Great guided trips included in the packages
