Rapa Nui-Easter Island
The Hotel Otai is a quaint, locally-owned hotel located in the heart of Hanga Roa town and a short walk from, shops, restaurants, municipal buildings, community markets and the coastline. Otai means "In the Coast" in the Rapa Nui language. It is in an excellent location to get a real feel for community life on Rapa Nui. A short distance below the Hotel Otai is the pier where fishing boats return every evening with their catch of huge tuna and pacific lobsters. Archeology sites with restored statues abound along the coastline and this area of the coast provides a favorite sunset walk for tourist and locals alike. Originally, Hotel Otai was a small guesthouse called “Rosita’s. Rosita and Nico Haoa were the first Rapa Nui family to host tourists at their home in the late 1960’s. Their home was where the archeologist William Mulloy lived with his family in 1960 while working on the restoration of Ahu Akivi. The Hotel Otai has also hosted many famous visitors, movie stars and scientists over the years and can rightly claim its place as the “Historic Hotel” of Rapa Nui. The beautiful gardens and informal atmosphere of the Hotel Otai is a perfect to place to get a feel for Rapa Nui culture and experience the attitude of hospitality that is a unique blend of Polynesian and Latin American culture.
