Explora Atacama is the sister hotel of the fabulous and extremely successful Explora Patagonia in the Torres del Paine National Park in southern Chile. Located on a plain known as the Ayllu de Larache, once inhabited by the ancient Atacameño community, in the driest desert on the earth, the hotel faithfully carries forward the same Explora concept of comfort and adventure in a unique landscape.
The 50 well-appointed guest rooms at the Explora Atacama have Jacuzzis, custom designed furnishings and breathtaking views of the mountains, desert and volcanoes. There's not a television in sight - but who needs one with surroundings like this? There is an extensive patio area with four interconnecting pools, saunas, steam baths, open-air Jacuzzis and a bar. Delicious meals are served in the elegant hotel restaurant, accompanied by fine Chilean wines.
Everything is included during your stay at the Explora Atacama and with numerous guided tours and activities to choose from including visits to the salt flats, geysers and hot springs, you will never be short of things to do. The hotel also boasts it own astrological observatory where you can look at the universe in striking detail in the consistently cloudless, moonlit sky.
