Explora Atacama lies above 8000 feet in the high Chilean desert. It is one of many lodges of all levels in the town, but is the most up-scale (and expensive) in accommodations. The rooms surround a large courtyard, the center building of which contains the public rooms and a large restaurant with an outdoor deck used for lunch. Our room... More

We spent 6 nights here in mid-March, and we had a phenomenal experience. This is an all-inclusive hotel, and the attention to guest comfort and food and experience is amazing! The bed was really comfortable, and the shower was awesome; the food was varied and delicious; both alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages were delicious. You wouldn't come here just to hang... More

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and at home. The hotel is luxurious but in an understated way. Our room was large, with a very comfortable bed and a superb bathroom, and the main building stretching through reception, bar, guides room and restaurant is beautifully designed so that the views are all around. We were... More

My husband and I have done a lot of traveling and this experience at Larache Explora is at the very top of our list. The excursions and experience of being in the desert are unparalleled. Aside from breathtaking scenery, the hotel service, food and amenities are just top notch. Can not say which was our favorite outing but walking the... More

This was our third Explora after Patagonia and Rapa Nui so we knew the ropes and spent 4 nights ( you really need to). Excellent welcome and initial briefing. Invidious to mention any particular member of staff because we found everyone from manager, marvellous guides, bar and waiting staff and front desk delightful and helpful and knowledgable beyond belief.

This was our first stay at an explora hotel, but we have stayed at hotels with similar concepts. Our room was comfortable and I liked what seemed to be genuine attempts at sustainability, particularly with regard to water. The botel has a lot to offer: gorgeous horses, lots of hikes, 4 pools (for 50 rooms) an observatory, bar, massage, etc.... More

Wonderful time. Spent five days. The staff is the best part of Explora. Gustavo did a great job of explaining the level of difficulty which can range from beginner to expert level so the guests stay safe and have a great time. The guides were all knowledgable and interesting to be with. Especially enjoyed the tours with Juan, Joao and... More

We have just returned from our first trip as a family to Chile. A colleague of my husband's had recommended the hotel. It was perfect in every way. From the moment you are picked up at the airport you are made to feel important and that nothing is too much trouble. The manager Christobel was outstanding as were all the... More

Full disclosure – my wife and I love explora lodges. We visited explora Patagonia in 2011 and visited Rapa Nui and Atacama on this trip. The staff, the food, the journeys and the people we meet make each place so unique. That said, of the three lodges, this is our least favorite and we both agreed not worth the explora... More

This hotel is next to a small town but both are in the middle of a desert. You basically come to explore the desert environment. The rooms are well laid out but a bit utilitarian. The beds were quite comfortable and the rooms were somewhat insulated although we could hear our neighbors from time to time. The wireless internet did... More

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
