EASTER ISLAND, CHILE

Just 7,750 people have made Rapa Nui (Easter Island), home. The next port of call after Easter Island is Pitcairn Island, which is 2,000 kilometres away. However, while it may be remote, if you choose to stay here, you don’t have to leave those little luxuries behind. After a hard day’s biking, trekking and and wildlife watching you can just book into the Explora Rapa Nui and enjoy a massage at the eco-chic spa.
