If you are having any doubts of going to Torres del Paine in the winter, don't! The weather was perfect almost all 6 days that we were there. The temperature ranged from around 30 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. It rained 2 of the days and the rest of the time we had clear and sunny skies. The most important thing... More

Everything about Explora is magical! The location is incredible-right in the heart of Torres del Paine and a short drive to most of the excursions. The hotel is spotless and the rooms are very comfortable and clean with a view that literally takes your breath away. All of our meals were delicious and healthy, with equally delicious wine and pisco... More

The scenery was out of this world! Explora encourages visitors to go out and explore, and after a full day of activities, excellent welcoming services awaited us at the hotel. We had Room 42 with a sweeping view of the Lake and Torres del Paine. The room was cleaned and tidied up at least twice daily. The staff at the... More

Everything is exceptional...the transfer to and from the hotel and then while at the hotel. The staff make you feel like you're right at home, from the drivers to the wait staff to the tour guides. I can't even begin to describe the beauty of Torres del Paine, I can't do it justice and you could see it from your... More

Every aspect of Explora, from pickup to transfer to the airport are outstanding. No photos can do justice to how beautiful Torres del Paine is, and no praise can do justice to the unbelievable level of service and outstanding facilities Explora has.

We flew in to Punto Arenas from Buenos Aires and then travelled by the hotel's minibus to Torres del Paine. Nothing on the 5 hour journey could have prepared us for the fantastic scenery we were faced with and the hotel itself complimented the surroundings. Our room was warm and comfortable with a stunning view of the Torres across the... More

Extraordinary location. Well trained staff. Superb cuisine. Diverse menus. Wine list is excellent. Guides were very good and could explain flora, fauna and geology of the region in an understandable and interesting manner. Other guests good company.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our lodge is located right in the heart of the extraordinary Torres del Paine National Park in southern Patagonia. The diverse and untouched landscapes of this area led UNESCO to declare it a biosphere reserve.Our Patagonia hotel lodge opened in 1993 on the banks of the Salto Chico waterfall. It affords an excellent view of the unique Paine Massif and two of the three impressive torres, or towers, which give the park its name.The lodge has 49 rooms and a variety of inviting spaces. Situated on a 3-hectare (7.4-Acre) site, the design borrows certain organic forms from the landscape itself, adapting to it with simple elegance. It was designed to create a dialogue with its environment, putting human beings in touch with the sublimity of their surroundings.For travellers, the lodge provides the welcome surprise of comfort in a remote area. Nonetheless, you are not isolated from nature, but rather placed "within" it. ... more   less
