    A wonderful Getaway in a Magical Place

    I just returned from a 3 night-4 day stay with Explora Rapa Nui and words can't properly express the loveliness of this island and hotel. This was a solo vacation and from the moment they pick you up at the airport, bring you to the remote location and show you around the resort, you feel at home and all the stress just drift away. This was an all inclusive stay and except for the well deserved staff tips, you don;t need to pay a penny. The food is included and is wonderful. The bar is included and Pablo the bartender knows his way around a cocktail. Each day, we chose from a variety of tours, two a day, ranging from relaxing to physically advanced. We saw so many lovely Moai and the staff arranged for us to go and see the Moai at Sunset. So much more to say, but suffice it to say I met wonderful people and had a life-altering stay at Explora. Worth every penny spent.

    All one hoped for and so much more

    This was one of those hotels you can’t quite believe you staying in because everything is so much better than expected. Most important of all, the staff - all of whom go above and beyond - one word/ amazing

    The "Number One" place to stay on Easter Island

    After an amazing 5 days at Explora Patagonia (in the Torres del Paine National Park) we flew to Easter Island for another great Explora experience - 5 days at this delightful Eco-lodge. As with Patagonia, the prices are high but all is included, and no extra charge for the delightful views! The guides were excellent as were all the excursions. These were tailored to the capabilities of each guest. The sights and sounds of the island are wonderful. 5 days was by no means too long - we found it just right. A real 'bucket-list' destination.

    Spectacular Stay

    Three nights in mid-March. All was superb, especially the food (fresh, varied, luxurious, delicious) and the guides (very knowledgeable and enthusiastic). Service top notch in restaurant, bar, rooms, drivers, everywhere. Room was spacious and comfortable. Infinity edge pool and spa were the real sleepers, very well done and a pleasant change after hiking. Yes, it’s expensive, but well worth it.
