Explora Rapa Nui is the BEST: fantastic view from all rooms, 5 Star food and bar, delightful service, and the lodge itself is an architectural marvel yet blends with its environment. It's just a few minutes from town, which is good, because there are no advantages to staying in Hanga Roa, nor are there many restaurants. You don't need to rent a car -- Explora provides vans and guides to all places of interest (*the guides are extremely knowledgeable.) We all felt like we had truly "lived" the Rapa Nui experience, and I credit the lodge management and staff, because they provided a truly unforgettable experience for us. I even credit the architect, because he captured the mood and character of the island...something I'll never forget. Kudos!!!
