Home Accommodations Altiplanco Rapa Nui

Altiplanco Rapa Nui

Hanga Roa

On Easter Island we are based in Hanga Roa, the only inhabited town on the island. We stay at the Altiplanico, a delightful boutique hotel designed in traditional Rapa Nui boathouse style. The hotel is located on the west coast of Easter Island, about a 20-minute drive from the airport. Seamlessly blending into its serene oceanside setting, the hotel has a world-apart feeling, a microcosm of our larger isolated environs.

Accommodations are in 16 detached bungalows that are linked by stone or grass pathways. Each has a king-size or two twin beds, en-suite facilities with a shower open to the outdoors, and doors opening onto a private terrace with fabulous ocean views. The décor features traditional, simple design incorporating local stone and stucco, creating a spacious and airy feel in each bungalow. Amenities include a swimming pool, bar and restaurant specializing in local and South American cuisine. Much of the food served in the dining room is grown on site at the Altiplanico, and guests will enjoy walking among the citrus and banana trees and pineapple plants that dot the property.
