Explora Sacred Valley

An iconic piece of architecture nestled within high Andean mountains and ancient corn plantations, the very design of Explora Sacred Valley was amended numerous times due to discoveries of important Inca remains. In keeping with the broader Explora philosophy, the property is intended as a base for exploration and operates on an all-inclusive basis complete with authentic gourmet food and fine wines and your choice of guided excursions.

Its 50 tranquil rooms are superbly furnished in neutral colours and organic herringbone fabrics, and all feature jetted bathtubs. While all rooms boast stunning views over the corn plantations and surrounding mountains, the larger suite accommodations feature cosy sitting areas. The impressive Pumacahua Bath House, a meticulously restored 17th century colonial house, offers a number of rejuvenating treatments, a sauna and a steam rooms. Meanwhile, an outdoor swimming pool offers spectacular panoramic views of the rolling hills of the valley.

Why we like Explora Sacred Valley

In the company of expert guides, guests can congregate each evening in the show-stopping lobby with wood-beamed ceilings and roaring fireplaces to decide on the next days’ adventures, choosing from over 20 different experiences.


The clue being in the name, Explora Sacred Valley is truly a base for unique and authentic guided explorations that include overland expeditions to Machu Picchu, challenging treks to the Sun Gate, visits to the markets of Cusco and half-day hikes to the Inca remains of Moray.

Additionally, bike rides take guests through the countryside and along the Urubamba River and trails lead from isolated communities to secret lagoons. With a seemingly endless list of guided trips available, it is just a matter of packing as many as possible in to your stay.
