Easter Island
Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa

This striking Easter Island resort pays tribute to the Kainga philosophy that espouses respect for the connection between the spiritual world and our planet. The architecture reflects the village of Orongo, the remains of which can be found at the peak of Rano Kau volcano, and the main lounge is based on an ancestral casa bote, a house shaped like an upside down boat that can be viewed among the island ruins. Nature preservation is found in the form of solar panels, wind power, waste recycling, water filtration, native landscaping and the use of organic ingredients at the restaurants and spa. Located on a coastal road near the center of town, Hangaroa makes an ideal base for exploring the island's legendary moai statues.
