Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, Easter Island is one of the remotest inhabited islands on the planet, but that hasn't stopped intrepid tourists from turning up to view the haunting monolithic stone figures (moai) whose mysterious origins have made this out-of-the-way place famous. That said, the island is not overrun with tourists, and although its location is isolated, it still manages to offer an exceptional degree of luxury in the form of Posada de Mike Rapu. This eco-friendly resort offers 30 rooms with sweeping ocean views rather than TVs, an infinity-edge swimming pool, a solar-heated Jacuzzi and a massage pavilion overlooking the water. Rates include meals, and the menu emphasizes healthy cuisine for visitors planning to spend their days in the great outdoors. To this end, the hotel features fifteen custom-crafted excursions, including a trek past toppled moai and an ancient stone quarry to the edge of the Ranu Raraku volcanic crater.
