Hangaroa hotel is located in the capital city of Easter Island, Hanga Roa. Easter Island is considered one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world, but it still captivates the attention of tourists thanks to its main attraction: the historic Moai statues also known as “Easter Island Heads.”
The statues are housed in the Rapa Nui National Park, a certified UNESCO World Heritage Site. They are considered monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people between the years of 1250 and 1500.
The nearly 900 Moai statues have been under restoration since 1950. Most were carved from tuff (volcanic ash) and the oversized heads, deep eyebrows, and long noses demonstrate the Polynesian belief in the sanctity of the chiefly head.
Infused with the vibrant culture of Easter Island, Hangaroa rooms are accented with items made by local artisans.
Each room maximizes natural light and utilizes local materials including cypress logs, clay soaking tubs, and volcanic stone framing the beds.
