HANGAROA ECO VILLAGE & SPA
If you are looking for a destination that is off the beaten track and away from maddening crowds, a place where you can slip into a different world, a different culture, where you are sure to meet new and interesting people, a place to be surrounded by a calmness that you might only dream about, then let us welcome you to the Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa!
Open since september 2012, the Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa is the most luxury property in Easter Island and also happens to be the only five-star resort on the island.
The Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa is a place where you will find what it means to be human, where you find simplicity, the origins of man and above all the beauty of nature. It is an invitation to rejuvenate your soul while simultaneously gaining a respect for the nature and culture that surround you. It is an invitation to be both an active part and spectator of an age-old culture that continues to be alive.
The architecture of the Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa pays tribute to the Village of Orongo. Vestiges of that specific village can still be found on the western summit of the Rano Kau volcano. That is where the Tangata Manu was chosen, the most important ceremony in the second period of the island. The village concept was to promote a harmonic interrelationship between spaces, interwoven by a landscape design of native species, where nature and construction blend together as one.
The rooms are made of noble and natural materials like cypress trunks, clay and volcanic rock. The resort has been entirely designed so that its guests could immerse themselves into the Rapa Nui habitat. Inspired on the idea of “a cave”, spaces are curvy, insular and organic. State of the art technology has been installed throughout the resort, enabling it to control its water and electricity consumption, minimize noise and electromagnetic fields, and heat or cool the environment to each guest desire.
The design of all rooms was specifically made so that guests might completely and utterly “rest and relax.”
The decoration is minimalist, yet reflects the perfect mix between rustic and elegance. Lines are curvy and there is a large hand-made clay tub in the middle of the room. All rooms look out onto the ocean and each room has its own terrace. Rooms also encompass a sink sculpted from volcanic rock and a wide and luminous circular shower. A bioswitch has also been installed near the bed as to guarantee the most restful sleep as it frees the environment from any electromagnetic fields generated by electrical installations.
The 75-room resort is built on a single floor, reflecting all the shapes of the land and making it sustainably integrated to its environment.
The hotel includes : 69 “Kainga” rooms & 6 “Ma’unga” suites.
