Taha Tai Hotel
Taha Tai Hotel offers relaxed, informal accommodation close to the Pacific shoreline in Easter Island
In common with most accommodation on Chile’s mid-Pacific Easter Island, TahaTai is an understated, unpretentious property with an informal and relaxing atmosphere. Close to Hanga Roa it is only a couple of minutes’ stroll from the seashore, and just 2km from the major archaeological site Ahu Tahai, where silent stone statues stand sentinel over a grassy plain.
The red-roofed main single-storey building houses bright and airy wood-panelled guest rooms, which have verandas and patio doors and beyond, down a gently-sloping path, the bar, dining room and compact cottage-style chalets. The rooms are simply furnished but have safes, TV and complimentary Wifi. There are serene ocean views from the restaurant and most rooms.
The hotel is set in breezy tropical gardens which host an outdoor pool with loungers, perfect for relaxing after a day out exploring.
What our clients say

Most Memorable Moment: Cycling around Puerto Varas in Chile.JL, Studley
Most Memorable Moment?: Rapa Nui - a unique environment with lots of architectural and historical interest and also comtemporary culture (Tapati festival). Very interesting.AB, Burnham-On-Crouch
Highlight?: The Grey GlacierJC, Ipswich
Our experience at Patagonia Camp was the most memorable part of the trip. Everyone at the camp really cared for the place and the experience they were providing for their clients, from the restaurant staff to the reception staff to the guides. They were all delightful to deal with and the guides in particular deserve special mention for their knowledge and commitment to the preservation of the TdP National Park and the ethos of the camp.RE, Knutsford
Highlight?: Trips into parts of the Atacma Desert that were not in fact desert but little islands of habitation frequented by only a few.RP, Glasgow
Most Memorable Moment?: So many overall but the glaciers, Torres, the cruise and Orcas/penguins.AB, Fordingbridge
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the cruise or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten Celcius. As we approached the cruise time we wondered if we'd cope with the Zodiacs, but everyone was so helpful and safety conscious. The all-time highlight of so many on our holiday was standing in silence at the Pia Glacier. Our favourite guide was Cyril in Chiloe. He became a great friend and we had some lovely times together.RW, Paphos
Most Memorable Moment?: The stunning beauty of Torres del Paine ; we were very lucky with the weather in Patagonia Our estancia brief visit, en route, was also very nice.RL, Solihull
Highlight: "Easter Island for it's uniqueness and remoteness. Excellent wines and food in Mendoza and Casablanca Valley in Chile. The Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires was spectacular. The friendliness of people in Colonia."JR, Grimsby
Most Memorable Moment?: Difficult to say as so many. I think seeing the first upright statues on Easter Island as I've wanted to see them since I was a childBN, Marlborough
Highlight?: Patagonia campMM, Southsea
Patagonia- exceeded very high expectations. JLA were great.AH, Northampton
Each separate part of the trip was excellent. Patagonia most memorable for scenery and Easter Island for history and scenery.RR, Aberdeen
Most memorable experiences: The Atacama Desert. An impressive place with friendly people. The Ahlarkapin Observatory trip was outstanding and a real highlight.PM, Redditch
Time in the Atacama - with Oscar!! Probably one of the most spectacular places we've visited as tourists and we have years of world travel experience behind us.RB, London
Patagonia for its stark beauty, stunning snow covered mountains and tranquility.SB, Solihull
Highlight?: Touring Easter Island, it was a unique experience, one that is very different to many resort islands that one can visit worldwide.DM, Newcastle upon tyne
Highlights: WE have many good memories but we would pick out the guided walk to Laguna de los Tres at Fitzroy and the day to the French Valley at Patagonia Camp and Patagonia Camp in general.SC, Cheltenham
Patagonia's open spaces, clean air and stunning views. Chilean people were very friendly and helpful. Excellent food.MP, Hemel Hempstead
Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult to pick one from so many but probably the walk up to Torres Del Paine Mirador - although it was a tough day.SB, Milnthorpe
Overall we have had two of the most memorable weeks in one of the world’s most varied geographical environments and the friendly Chilean people. Thank you JLA.SJ, Welwyn
The excursions in Torres de Paine were exceptional.AD, Cambridge
We really enjoyed Easter Island but the Atacama was the most memorable part!ME, Caernarfon
Chile felt safe and modest, a delight to visit.NH, Bridgewater
Highlights?: Patagonia Camp and Torres del Paine National Park.CD, Shepton mallet
The visit was basically divided into three separate parts - self driving on the Carretera Austral, the ferry cruise which I arranged separately, and the visit to Tierra Patagonia. In their very different ways, all were excellent and memorable.TAK, Ilkley
Mount Fitz Roy and Los Torres, particularly the Pliegue tumblado walk.DS, Leatherhead
A truly memorable trip all round because of the contrasts very difficult to pick the most memorable but Valparasio Casa Higueras we would have loved to have stayed longer and in Vina del Mar.DS, Chesham
Highlight?: Difficult to separate a sunny, windless clear day at Torres del Paine ( plus several others nearly as good). And deep snow in the Altiplano round Miscanti lakes. So good even the drivers were taking photos. Both quite excellent.DH, Milnthorpe
Highlights?: Too many to mention ! Great mix of culture, sights and experiences. Love the inclusion of a horse ride from The Singular in Patagonia.HJ,
