Altiplánico Rapa Nui
Sector Hinere s/n, Easter Island, Valparaíso, 2770000, Chile
This hotel, part of a relatively new chain of boutique hotels in popular Chilean vacation spots, has minimalist design—beds are mattresses on a cement platform and some rooms have indoor-outdoor showers—that may not appeal to everyone's taste, and the rooms (really more like standalone cabins, each one painted with a pattern representing the eye of a moai) are pricey given the facilities. Wake-up calls are made by hotel staff actually knocking on your door. Renovations in progress in August 2014 were being undertaken by the same craftsmen that originally built the hotel. Transport to and from the airport is included.
- expansive coastal view, particularly from the lower of the three rows of rooms
- total peace and quiet, Aka Pu moai visible from the hotel
- 40-minute walk from Hanga Roa, so guests either rent a car or rely on taxis and tours to get around
