Beyond Luxury & Cultural Immersion to Transformation. Forget high end chains and change your life

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Mar 2024via mobile
This stay was transformational! Our highest hopes and expectations for a travel experience have been completely reset. All facets of our stay were extraordinary. Staff, facility, culinary, culture, comfort, personalization. Everything. People always say ‘we were treated like family’ as the highest accolade. We were treated like the family you want to visit and who long to host you!

I have nothing but EXCEPTIONAL things to say about my stay in the Explora lodge and with the Exlora tour company. The accommodations were first rate, top-of-the-line. The service and staff make you feel like family and treat you with the utmost respect, regard and professionalism at all times and accommodate any request you have. The Guides are knowledgeable and talented, the excursions are outstanding- with visits to remote and jawdropping areas. From start to finish, I could not have asked for a more beautiful experience and high quality accommodations, foods. The menu and restaurant is totally suitable and exceptional for vegetarians as well. The drinks are artfully designed. All needs are anticipated. Could not recommend more highly! Thank you Explora! They truly care for their guests and want to make sure you walk away from Sacred Valley with an in-depth appreciation for the historical value and majesty it has to offer.

We had an amazing stay at Explore en VALLE SAGRADO. This was our third experience with Explora and we really enjoyed our time. Our guide, Juan Jose, for the four days we visited, was amazing and knowledgeable about the area. We had a great time with him. All the staff was very accommodating. Rooms were very nice with an amazing view of the valley.

We had an excellent experience and it exceeded our expectations. The explorations are spectacular and the guides are very well prepared. The service and infrastructure of the hotel are superior. I was left with the impression of having taken a magical trip, I learned a lot, I felt the culture and history of the place, and I loved the concept of cuisine that uses elements and flavors from the sacred valley. Great food!!.
I really appreciated Explora for the care taken in every detail.

Room tip: The hotel is over 2,500 mts above sea level; some people may require an adaptation period especially for explorations that involve hicking

This is the third Explora Lodge that we have visited in South America... we highly recommend all of them. The one in the Sacred Valley (like the ones we visited in Torres del Paine and The Atacama Desert) is beautifully designed and nestled into the surrounding environment. Our room was spacious, with an amazing shower (and separate tub) and wonderful bedding. The food was so special -- featuring local dishes -- and the presentation was gorgeous!!
We like to visit Explora Lodges because of their choices of excursions -- lead by knowledgeable and friendly guides. We were fortunate enough to get to know four terrific professionals who led us on surrounding hikes and on a trip to Machu Picchu. The latter was made quite exciting (!) due to a partial derailment of a train going home that turned a 3 hour trip into 7 hours. On our own, we might have felt really uncomfortable as we had to walk along the dark tracks at 10:30pm -- but our Explora guide made us feel safe and even had us laughing.
If you have a chance to visit the Sacred Valley and can stay at the Explora -- go for it!!!

Room tip: Just enjoy!!!

Awesome experience and marvelous place. Really incredible explorations hiking and biking; as well as dining and relaxing at the livings, the rooms or the spa.

Explora concept is quite unique and really wonderful.

Room tip: Make your reservations for the spa before leaving to explore.
