The concept of the Altiplanico Hotel includes that the guests feel, understand and learn to respect the island as the archaeological-cultural monument it is and thus participate in its care during their stay. Outside the hotel is painted with motifs of the island, privileging black as the color used in traditional objects. Rapanui roots are present at all times in the hotel, starting by the concept of a Rapanui boat house to the drawings of the exterior walls. The rooms are distributed in three semi-circles, linked by a network of trails across through the gardens. Green areas and crops constitute one of the most important objectives of the project; they generate a lush, cool, colorful and shaded alive space to relax from the stunning sun. Archaeological assessment evidenced the presence of several small archaeological sites.
The rooms are independent units, linked by exterior corridors of stone, sand, or grass, each has a private terrace. Internal distribution is simple, privileging view and opening to the outside. The bathroom shower opens to the exterior to feel nearer to nature given the climate is very warm. Decoration is simple but careful; each is different to personalize the experience. All are spacious and comfortable opening to the view of the sea. The objective was to encourage visitors to live in more outdoors, enjoy the view and the landscape and thus feel Easter Island’s unique energy.
The hotel has sixteen spacious and elegant, double, and triple rooms that adapt to the particular style of the Altiplánico hotels. Following our line of boutique hotels coupled with nature, in this in particular we wished to emphasize the concept that combines personalized first rate service, privacy and the feeling of Rapanui life. It is located in a property of 15000 square meter park, overlooking the sea and at 10 minutes walk from Hanga Roa. It has, moreover, outdoor swimming pool, extensive gardens, free internet, free parking, laundry service, safes, 24/7 front desk and gourmet cuisine.
The restaurant is open at night, along with the bar in which every day there is happy hour and good music to relax after encountering the island. A single menu consisting of hors d’ovre, main course, and dessert, all served with delicacy and elegance is available to eat. The menu varies daily, weekly. The food is a mixture of inspiration of Peruvian, Chilean and above all Rapanui roots. The result is a meal of high quality surprising variety and above all very original.
