Stylish lodge combining a warm, homely atmosphere with an emphasis on putting the spectacular natural views centre stage.

This spacious, attractive lodge - close to the boundary of the Torres del Paine National Park - enjoys superb views of the peaks and towers of the vast granite massif which dominates this extraordinary Patagonian wilderness. The hotel's tasteful, fresh décor and furnishings are certainly easy on the eye, with muted Patagonian greys and tawny browns complementing the wonderful setting. The sense of space is not just on the outside: the lobby and restaurant are also remarkably roomy and we recommend the superior guest rooms for their ample picture windows and impressive views. A number of excursions can be booked from the hotel, including short walks and full day hikes, boat trips and horse riding. Meanwhile, the hotel’s pool, sauna and spa facility is a fine place to soothe weary limbs after a day in the great outdoors.

What our clients say

  • Highlight?: Trips into parts of the Atacma Desert that were not in fact desert but little islands of habitation frequented by only a few.

    RP, Glasgow
  • Time in the Atacama - with Oscar!! Probably one of the most spectacular places we've visited as tourists and we have years of world travel experience behind us.

    RB, London
  • Highlights: The Explora hotel experience and the Perito Moreno glacier

    BT, Surbiton
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Difficult to say as so many. I think seeing the first upright statues on Easter Island as I've wanted to see them since I was a child

    BN, Marlborough
  • Highlights?: Too many to mention ! Great mix of culture, sights and experiences. Love the inclusion of a horse ride from The Singular in Patagonia.

    HJ,
  • Most Memorable Moment?: For me, Torres del Paine as it appeared and disappeared through the clouds. The Explora hotel is in a fantastic setting and the views of the mountains…

Our Expert's Opinion

It’s all about location with the Rio Serrano – the views over the peaks and towers in Torres del Paine are just incredible! After a day hiking in the park, it was much appreciated to be able to use the pool, spa and sauna. All the rooms have great views but I recommend upgrading to a superior room if possible as it offers more space as well as views over the iconic Paine massif.
