A base hotel to explore the Sacred Valley

Sacred Valley

Located between Cusco and Machu Picchu, explora Valle Sagrado was designed as the base from where you can explore a remote and amazing site: the Sacred Valley of the Incas. All our programs include accommodation, transfers, meals and beverages, and a selection of more than 20 exclusive explorations developed by explora.

Through our explorations, you can visit from Cusco to Machu Picchu, passing by remote villages, archaeological sites such as Ollaytantambo, Moray, Chinchero and Pisac, and this region’s high peaks, like La Verónica or Incañan.

Why explora?

Exploring the Sacred Valley and its surroundings extensively and using a hotel immersed in Inca history as base, is explora Valle Sagrado’s proposal for its travelers to have an exclusive experience. Located between Cusco and Machu Picchu and 600 meters below the height of the ancient Inca capital city, our destination is the perfect starting point to explore this area.

explora Valle Sagrado lays on an old corn plantation established in one of the most retreated farms of the valley. It is sheltered and surrounded by mighty mountains that were once the home of the great Inca Empire.

Location

The Pumacahua Bath House is an old colonial manor located on one side of the hotel’s corn terraces. Rescued by our restoration and archaeology team, it contains the hotel’s spa where our guests can enjoy massages, a swimming pool, steam baths and saunas.

Spa Pumacahua Bath House

Some of the areas we will be visiting in Valle Sagrado include Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, Zapacto, Maras, Quimsacocha, Pisac, Cusco, Moray, and many others.

Privileged views

explora Valle Sagrado offers our guests more than 20 exploration activities, either on foot or bicycle. Our guides will take our travelers to experience the area’s unique geography and Andean culture in all it richness.

Explorations

Given the region's outstanding ancestral and cultural heritage, the commissioning and construction of the Valle Sagrado project was done in the most responsible way, working in close coordination with the Peruvian archeology institute. At the same time, we worked with the area's communities and we hope – starting as from this year – to establish a conservation and social responsibility program.

Sustainability

Since we believe that it is important to leave all daily concerns behind, our hotels are all inclusive: explorations, food, beverage, and transport.

All Inclusive

Explorations in the Sacred Valley

Traveling through archaeological Inca sites, following the course of the Urubamba River by bike, visiting Machu Picchu or arriving at a glacier nearby Cusco are some of the explorations carefully designed by explora for its travelers. Through more than 20 options to explore, either walking, by van or riding a bike, our travelers discover from traditional villages still untouched by globalization to perfectly preserved ancient traces and lost lagoons in the Andean pampa.

    I LOVE THIS LODGE - AMAZING

    I have been lucky enough to stay in all of the explora's in South America. I love to hike and I love their concept and locations. Up to now...the one in Torres del Paine in Chile was my favorite.... but with my recent stay in the Sacred Valley...it is a real toss-up. This place has only been open a little bit and although the rooms are simple (they are in all the exploras) the views are always spectacular. Right outside my window was an amazing field of Quinoa in all colors backed by the dark blue-green of the Andes. Their all-inclusive idea is wonderful as the only thing you have to worry about is which hike or excursion you are going to take the next day.

    What a place!

    Fantastic place in Sacred Valley. The hotel includes everything you need, breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hour, wines, drinks, beer, and also, all visits to the most important places in the region. The service is amazing, very nice people. Really recommended. Ps: the idea of the hotel is to let you rest and disconnect during the stay, so, there is no internet and TV in the rooms. And this is an amazing experience too.

    Once in a lifetime experience

    We went to explora Valle Sagrado in Peru for our honeymoon and it was an absolutely fantastic experience. The staff was incredibly welcoming and thoughtful with an uncanny attention to detail about every aspect of the guests trip. We had excellent advice and guides-- the rooms were stunning and the food was top notch and the spa was stunning with excellent services. There is a huge attention to detail and ensuring that each guest gets exactly what they would like out of the experience. Cant recommend it enough and can't wait for our next explora trip!
