Machu Picchu & Sacred Valley
Lodge & Services
Explora is located in one of the region’s most remote ancient corn plantations close to the Urquillos village. It is designed in line with its surroundings, generating a dialogue with the high Andean mountains around the valley, as well as the surrounding plantations that are still today being harvested by townspeople.
The gastronomic experience in Explora in the Sacred Valley of the incas was developed exclusively by the renowned Peruvian chef Virgilio Martínez, owner of the sixth best restaurant in the world, according to The World’s Best Restaurants 2019 ranking.
Our cuisine is inspired by the Andes and its diversity of products, ingredients and traditions. Through it, we want each of our travelers to deeply connect with the territory we inhabit and live a unique gastronomic experience in the Valley.
The hard work by restoration experts, jointly with the Archaeology Institute of Peru, successfully managed to preserve the cultural and ancient heritage of this region, transforming this house into a museum where travelers can recharge energies after a day of exploration.
Located opposite to the main building in the hacienda where the hotel is sited, the Pumacahua Bath House catches the eye immediately. It is clear for anyone that this brilliantly preserved colonial house has its own history to be revealed.
