About Us

With its location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and home to a culture whose origins and evolution are still largely unknown, Easter Island is an attractive and mysterious destination. A mild year-round climate allows for walking the island’s geography and traveling along the coast of numerous ahus that are home to the gigantic sculptures called moai.

Who, when and why were these sculptures created? It is a mystery. It is presumed that the island has been inhabited since the earliest centuries of our times, and the moai are hundreds of years old.

It is also known that numerous tribes have lived on the island and have fought amongst themselves, razing much of the territory in the process. It is not known why they destroyed the majority of the moai.

Today visitors can share with the descendents of this ancient culture and who preserve their ancestral customs in the face of the advancement of Western civilization.There are five miles separating the property from the island’s only town, offering a striking setting to appreciate the vast dimensions of the water, land and wonder that surround it.

Lodging:- Guests are greeted at Posada de Mike Rapu by a welcoming patio and gracious staff.Inside, each of 30 guest rooms, including 4 suites, is designed for subtle comfort with a sitting area, ultra comfortable beds and a hydro-massage bathtub.Design accents are created from indigenous materials such as furniture of local Rauli wood, bathroom flooring and walls of Piedra Pizarra stone, and interior Lenga wood paneling. Each room faces the Pacific, assuring drop-dead sunrise views and fresh ocean breezes throughout the day.

The lodge is also highlighted by excellent service, a magnificent restaurant with a glassed-in kitchen, a bar, inside/outside dining, and Casa de Baños Hare Val, an inviting outdoor area with pool, massage salon and open-air Jacuzzis for unwinding after long days of exploration. A library and a meeting space for up to 30 people are available for business and pleasure, while a satellite dish provides permanent communication with Chile and the rest of the world. Of course, Internet access is available, too.

Exploring Rapa Nui:- Visitors to explora en Rapa Nui may participate in one of our diverse explorations that are organized according to group size and guest preference.
