Hotels and hostels
The construction of new and modern hotels in Easter Island has contributed significantly to the improvement of local tourism. This new infrastructure is needed to accommodate the gradual increase of travelers who come to the island to discover its wonders.
Among the developments in recent years include the addition of three 5-star hotels that fill the gap in the category of luxury hotels in Easter Island. Such hotels were necessary to meet the demand for passengers sector that demands high service, even in one of the remotest islands in the world.
Contrary to what happened in most of the world’s top tourist destinations, it seems that the construction of hotels in Easter Island has been made with the intention of respecting the fragile ecosystem of Rapa Nui. Here the visitor will not find large towers concrete, steel and glass, and huge resorts with hundreds of rooms. The buildings are not very large, usually of an apartment and rarely reach the two heights, trying to blend into the landscape.
Most of the hotels are located in the center of Hanga Roa and only a few are located outside, but that is not a problem to get around the island, as everything is close due to their small size.
