Easter Island already has some plans to promote sustainability: resource optimization, recycling, continuous improvement and “mo’a” (respect for nature) are the pillars of the islanders’ work to protect their environment. This also includes some hotels, of which we present 3 of the most sustainable.
Easter Island Ecolodge
Those who not only want to get to know the culture of mystical Easter Island, but also appreciate its sustainable offerings, will find ideal accommodation in this ecolodge. It is 90% powered with the energy of its photovoltaic panels. The building is also made from recycled materials such as tires and plastic bottles.
In addition, they have created an accredited educational program to reforest the native flora in the hotel’s garden and in three other hectares of the island.
Nayara Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa
The Nayara Hanga Roa Eco Village & Spa was built on a particularly beautiful spot on Easter Island, close to the beach and not far from Hanga Roa. The special architecture of the resort ensures that all of the very large and bright rooms have their own terrace with sea view. Two restaurants and a large wellness area complete the offer. Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa Resort was awarded the Chilean S-seal for its sustainable business practices in all areas of the hotel.
Hotel Explora Rapa Nui
The hotel Explora Rapa Nui blends harmoniously into the surroundings on Easter Island with its curved building. The architecture of the hotel, with its use of pine wood and volcanic stone, as well as a huge glass front overlooking the Pacific Ocean, is spectacular. The rooms are comfortably furnished and all have sea views. In the restaurant you can enjoy local dishes, especially fresh fish specialties.
Explora is a hotel chain and is characterized by its exclusive locations and partly award-winning architecture. Explora puts a lot of emphasis on sustainability and strives to leave a low carbon footprint and, on the other hand, to involve the local community in running activities or training staff.
