Vai Moana means: blue sea
in the Rapa Nui language, and is our way of paying homage to the enormous ocean that surrounds the island, from which much of the Rapa Nui culture has evolved.
Vai Moana is the first hotel on the island and in all of America to be certified amongst the network of biospheric hotels by the RTI (Responsible Tourism Institute, affiliated to UNESCO), in recognition of our efforts to carry out our development with responsibility towards the natural and cultural surroundings.
Our facilities are set within extensive lush gardens and contain examples of traditional architecture as found at the site of Tahai, and is located a meter five minutes from the center of Hanga Roa, likewise from the archaeological complex of Tahai. Our rooms are situated within separate bungalows, set all over the garden, and with ocean views.
We offer 18 generous and comfortable rooms, as either singles, twins, triples or suites, with all of you comfort needs catered for.
