HANGA ROA / EASTER ISLAND, CHILE
In Hanga Roa – Easter Island: Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa. Our hotel is unique, both for the environment, for its designs, materials and history. Its identity is a magical appeal. Our arquitecture, which blends with the enviroment through its grass roofs, colors and textures of the island, is a tribute to the Orongo ceremonial village, whose vestiges are still near volcano Ranu Kau, an iconic place of Rapa Nui culture, (There was the celebration the election of Tangata Manu , or Birdman, the most important ceremony of the second period of the island).
The reception and lounge area is based on the ancestral “boat house”, a building that is shaped like a boat set reversely, as seen in the stone ruins of the island. The village concept allows a harmonious interplay between spaces, also linked by a landscape design of native species, where nature and inhabited surfaces merge with respect and admiration for Easter Island. The hotel has high-efficiency electrical equipment, massive solar lighting, and LED technology, it also has self-supplying irrigation water through a purification system of wastewater. All detergents and cleaning products used at the hotel are made under environmental management systems.
