Explora Atacama recently reopened after having had a fire. It is absolutely wonderful! The managers, the guides, the staff are all so wonderful and helpful. They bend over backwards to arrange what you want to do. The rooms are beautiful, the food is great and the desert is a wonderful place to visit! The hikes and overland trips were great!...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 January 2017

A must do in South Amererica. Atacama is an astounding place with so many wonderful landscapes to experience and explora was an amazing way to do so. The hotel is lovely and the food is excellent, but the real magic is in explora' model which emphasises experiences and includes access to 16 amazing, knowledgeable guides who shape your stays and...

The room is simple, but in line with the proposal of “the essential luxury”. Good point: very good natural temperature control; bad point: I could hear several noises from the room next to my room, including water noise in the pipes Unforgivable: in the second day the hot water ran out during my wife's shower, in the third day it...

Dear Traveler, Thanks a lot for taking the time to share your experience at explora Atacama. However, the fact that you experienced discomfort due to the lack of hot water at specific hours of the day during your stay is something that concerns us. Nobody should leave explora feeling that they did not receive a world class service. Without going...

This resort lodge was recommended by our travel planning company, and they were able to get us a bit better rate near the end of the high season, because we were booking both this Explora, and the Explora in Patagonia at the same time. The stay is very high priced per day, but when you take into account the great...

Concept like Club Med. Plenty of explorations to join, from sunrise to star watching. Got its private and unique hot spring in the gorge. Great restaurants. Good food. Good rooms. Great for family with young adults. Will come back with my 2 grown up daughters.

The explora does a fantastic job at making its guests feel welcome. The guides were notable in that they are all clearly very well trained and experienced - and were also all very approachable, personal and encouraging. The set up facilitates getting to know other travelers - something that can really add to a trip. It is a pricey stay,...

This review is long overdue (and long!!) as I have struggled with the good and the not so good and decided to finish our 6 week tour of South America before reviewing. Although we didn't realise it at the time, we actually arrived on its first day of reopening in Dec 16. We were met by the amazing Maureen after...

My stay was an incredible and memorable experience. The team coordinated everything for me so I could just enjoy the magnificent landscape and property. The hotel reopened after a significant fire, a week prior to my arrival. There were some kinks but that was to be expected. That said, I loved my stay at the hotel and look forward to...

We spent four nights at Explora Atacama after three nights at their Patagonia location. The rooms were very comfortable, food menus were nice and similar to Patagonia the explorations were just amazing. I'm a planner but loved the concept where you pick what you want to do the evening before and there were so many options. The landscapes are so...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our lodge is located on a plain known as the Ayllu de Larache, once inhabited by an ancient Atacameno community. We have respected the original layout of the land and restored and maintained some of the buildings.Opened in 1998, our lodge is situated on 17 hectares (42 acres) of grounds just a few minutes' walk from the town of San Pedro de Atacama. In the area surrounding the lodge, we have maintained the ancient pathways and buildings which form a labyrinth that invites exploration.There are 50 rooms housed in three long buildings, positioned to form a central square planted with large trees for ample shade. On the fourth side of the square is the building which houses the lodge's public spaces. The views from the lodge's broad terraces enable you to enjoy Atacama's vast chain of volcanic mountains.In 2008, we set ourselves the challenge of intensifying your explora Atacama experience, remodeling the furnishings and the indoor and outdoor spaces. Now that the work is complete, we are pleased to be able to offer you new facilities and services. ... more   less
