Our Philosophy

The name of the hotel is derived from the Rapa Nui language. Puku Vai signifies stone and water, respectively. For us, stone symbolizes the civilization and water represents nature.

Hotel Puku Vai co-exists in perfect harmony with nature – as a monument to honor the creations of the ancient culture of Easter Island.

Hotel Puku Vai is located 3 blocks from the main street. The street address is Av. Hotu Matua s/n.

Regardless of the nearby airport, the location is peaceful since there is only 1-3 daily flights. Additionally, none of the discos or event centers located in the main street can be heard.

The main attractions of Hanga Roa, including some of the archeological sites such as Ahu Tahai, are at the walking distance from the Hotel Puku Vai. Hiking to volcan Rano Kau or bicyckling to the main beach Anakena are popular choices, as well.

Hotel Puku Vai was constructed to a location that has no archeological or cultural value and, thus, no harm was caused to the heritage of the island. The construction materials were shipped from the mainland Chile to reduce the negative impact to the enviroment of Easter Island to the very minimum.
