Explora Atacama Lodge


This five star lodge operated by Explora is located on a 42 acre property, immediately outside the town of San Pedro de Atacama.

The 50 rooms are contained within three buildings, positioned around a central courtyard shaded by large trees, with a building for the communal spaces completing this square. Spectacular views of the Atacama’s volcanic mountain chain can be appreciated from here.

The rooms are stylish and contemporary, and come with either garden or countryside views. Four outdoor swimming pools, with spa facilities, and beautiful grounds with ancient pathways provide a relaxing space to enjoy the exquisite surroundings.

Dining at the Explora Atacama Lodge restaurant is a truly gastronomic experience, with its ‘desert menu’ having been designed by award winning chef Virgilio Martinez.

San Pedro, which lies at an altitude of 2400 metres, is just a few minutes’ walk away. This charming, small town has a good choice of restaurants and shops, whilst revealing those exceptional distant views as you turn every street corner.

Additionally, the area is world famous for its star gazing potential.


Free use of Wi-Fi, spa, sauna, steam baths, outdoor hot tubs, four outdoor swimming pools, observatory with high powered telescope for astronomy, bicycles available.
The rooms contain a safety deposit box and include whirlpool baths as well as other amenities to be expected

Optional Activities

Local cycling routes, Puritama hot springs (eight thermal pools in the middle of a canyon surrounded by native vegetation), astronomy, trekking, horseback riding, vehicle tours, mountain biking

So good to be able to have the holiday organised for us and to be collected/guided by enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides. Nice for the majority of the accommodation to be all inclusive. Met all our expectations. Nice to be able to review and select our hotels.
