My husband picked this place for our 2nd and 3rd nights in Rapa Nui as it was a 1.5-2 hour hike from our first night hotel on our first full day, and... WOW.
Okay, so we ended up renting bikes, not hiking so the ride was shorter, but coasting down the hill to find Lemu Lodge was the highlight of my day. The property entrance is through a field, which at the time had cattle and horses grazing. I love animals, so this was a wonderful treat. Chickens clucking, the horses judging and the cows... well, you had me at moo (so to speak).
Check in greeted us with a delicious glass of fresh juice and a snack of savory treats grown on the farm.
The rooms are beautifully decorated and the property is 100% sustainable on solar power, which is awesome - travlers be mindful of shower hot water times :) - if you forget, no worries, the outdoor shower was refreshing at room temp.
THE BEST PART - THE FOOD. Note: I am still thing about my lunch yesterday. All fresh local ingredients and everything homemade. The salmon on our first night was the best we have had! The pasta yesterday was simple, delicious and know I will be telling stories of it for many years.
This place was wonderful and I would try the morning yoga and horseback riding next time... it is worth coming back to.
