explora Patagonia, Patagonia, Chile

In the heart of the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, the Salto Chico waterfall tumbles prettily down to calmer waters, white froth and Cinderella blue water against the granite peaks beyond.

On its banks, the clean lines of explora’s Hotel Salto Chico, the only resort at the centre of the park, rise elegantly from the rugged landscape, enhancing but never competing with the majesty that surrounds its modernist form.

This is the base for explora’s Patagonian adventures, a luxury lodge that provides both a retreat from Nature’s less forgiving elements, and a dialogue with those that can only be described as sublime.

The Southern Tip of the World

explora Patagonia, Patagonia, ChileIn the heart of the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, the Salto Chico waterfall tumbles prettily down to calmer waters, white froth and Cinderella blue water against the granite peaks beyond.

On its banks, the clean lines of explora’s Hotel Salto Chico, the only resort at the centre of the park, rise elegantly from the rugged landscape, enhancing but never competing with the majesty that surrounds its modernist form.

This is the base for explora’s Patagonian adventures, a luxury lodge that provides both a retreat from Nature’s less forgiving elements, and a dialogue with those that can only be described as sublime.

Accommodation

Explora’s Hotel Salto Chico can be found on the shore of Lago Pehoé, facing a breathtaking panoramic view of Macizo del Paine.

Conceived as a base for explorations, the Hotel Salto Chico features every amenity for travelers to really relax, and the equipment necessary to head out and explore Patagonia.

The hotel has television salon, telephones, fax, and radio contact within the park.

Added Amenities

There is also laundry service, a restaurant, bar and shop. An annex, Casa de Baños del Ona, located near the hotel, houses a heated indoor lap pool, four outdoor Jacuzzis, sauna and massage salon.

Inviting Spaces

The lodge has 49 rooms and a variety of inviting spaces. Situated on a 3-hectare (7.4-acre) site, the design borrows certain organic forms from the landscape itself, adapting to it with simple elegance.

It was designed to create a dialogue with its environment, putting human beings in touch with the sublimity of their surroundings.
For travelers, the lodge provides the welcome surprise of comfort in a remote area; nonetheless, you are not isolated from nature, but placed “within” it.
