The Hotel Hanga Roa is a property that occupies a position previously held by another hotel that was called Hanga Roa. Most recently it has been acquired by, or joined, the Nayara brand.
The new hotel was built from scratch and developed into a high-end, modern “island hotel”, emitting a style similar to what one would find on other Pacific islands such as Tahiti. It has an island up market “resort” ambience.
It offers 75 guest rooms, a large outdoor pool area, Pacific-side restaurant, and easy access to all areas of the village.
In the middle of Hanga Roa village, in front of the Pacific Ocean is the Hotel Hanga Roa.
This is a high-end hotel offering 75 spacious guest rooms, a spa, large open-air pool sector, a modern, half “al fresco” restaurant, and an overall ambience normally associated with a resort hotel on a Pacific Island like Tahiti.
For those who like to walk around the local Hanga Roa village, that is easily done because the village is around the hotel.
Architecturally there is nothing like this hotel on Easter Island. Notably no building is higher than one floor, and the exterior of all the units is “robust”, with thick-looking walls, coloured with ascetically, natural earth colours. In addition, a number of the buildings are circular with grass-covered roofs, replicating the ancient stone-built and grass-covered dwellings at Orongo, on the rim of the crater at Rano Kau Volcano (the large volcanic crater next to Hanga Roa village). Thereby, trying to create a hotel that emulates actual history of the Island.
Around the pool sector the boundary walls are built from volcanic rocks as well as areas where lose volcanic rocks and stones are used as a decorative way to fill in spaces in the garden.
The interior of the hotel, in all areas, is modern, with curved, split-level ceilings and plastered walls, both coloured in white and almost white colours accompanied by “mood” lighting.
Like other top-end hotels Hanga Roa Hotel offers all-inclusive programs with guided tours and excursions throughout the Island, meals and transport included in the rate.
The Poevara restaurant faces the Pacific with one side open to the elements. Here the hotel offers international cuisine created from local ingredients.
