A remarkable place in a remarkable landscape. It's hard to go wrong in the Atacama Desert because it's so jaw-droppingly beautiful, but Explora's hotel here makes everything just right. The guides who work with you every day to choose your excursions are charming, warm and smart -- as opposed to officially solicitous -- so that you feel like you're in great company the whole time. The on-site stable of horses are magnificent. Just to watch them play, bareback in their alfalfa fields while the sun sets, is a pleasure. And then riding them across the vast dunes...wow.
Combining arduous day treks with nighttime luxury is just a big bang factor for me in an adventure vacation. I can't recommend this experience highly enough.
- 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
