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.

Explora exceeded our expectations. We came during low season (right before they closed for a few weeks). We thought that the services and excursions would be cut back because of the few guests that were there but that was not the case. The food / bar services were top notch, the excursions so fantastic (and basically private for all of them!), and overall experience truly unbelievable. Being here during low season we thought would just be average but Patagonia is incredible in June. The trails are empty, weather was fantastic, and the views outstanding. Leaving made us want to go to more of Explora's properties in the region.

Hotel's Favorite
It was the most amazing experience to be at the Explora Patagonia. Right from the information booth at the Punta Arenas airport, cordial welcome and service offered at the airport, the transfer to the hotel with stopover for lunch was awesome! We were three couples, two of whom had arrived at the Punta Arenas port. The shuttle service coordinated pickups very seamlessly without wasting time both at the port and the airport so we could all travel togethr. We loved the contemporary architecture of the hotel, the layout and the rugged feel. We were welcomed with drinks and warm towels. We enjoyed and appreciated the brief information session and video on the activities offered at Explora with some of the most experienced and knowledgeable guides. That was the best part of the stay - the guided hikes offered to the guests- we chose a whole day walking hike (app. 16 km) and it was one of the most beautiful and memorable hikes we have ever done. The food at dinner and lunch was really delicious, especially considering that we are all vegetarians and love spicy food. The chef went all out to accommodate our dietary restrictions and tastes. The most breathtaking view was right out of our window - especially when the sun's raise hit the peak just before sunrise. Will never forget the view ever! Only regret we have is that we did not spend enough days at Explora. Which gives us more reason to return along with our grown up children to have some amazing family time in this gem of a hotel in the Torres Del Paine, Chile.

This hotel exudes excellence in a truly stunning location. A regular review cannot do justice to this place, you have to go there to fully appreciate the experience. Everyone - from the manager who welcomes you, the guides, the restaurant staff, the housekeeping - is on a mission to give you an unforgettable time. At face value it may seem expensive, but you get what you pay for and more. The food, wine, excursions & rooms were all excellent, and the transportation arrangements were very efficient. The hotel is proud of its commitment to the environment and local community, and justifiably so. We have travelled extensively in the world and this hotel ranks up there with the best. If opportunity allows, you won't regret coming here.

We spent 3 nights and 4 days at Explora. Wish we had planned well so could have spent more time there. Set in a location so mesmerising. Each room having full view of Torres des pines and a lake in front. This is indeed a six star resort. Super food for all courses, plenty of activities to suit all. However, to get the most out of the place one needs to be active. A great place to have active relaxing recharging holiday
