A base hotel to explore the Sacred Valley

The Sacred Valley of the Incas

explora Valle Sagrado was designed as a headquarter from where to explore a remote and great destination: Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the Incas. All our programs include accommodations, transfers, meals and beverages, and a selection of more than 30 explorations developed by our outdoor team.

Our explorations take travelers through the colonial history of Cusco and the architectural magnificence of the Incas in Machu Picchu, isolated villages, archaeological sites such as Ollantaytambo, Moray, Chinchero and Pisac, to Andean pampas and mountains or Apus, considered by locals as guardians of people and nature.

Why explora?

Located between Cusco and Machu Picchu at an altitude of 600 meters (2.000 feet) below the ancient Inca capital city, explora Valle Sagrado offers visitors an in-depth exploration experience from a base hotel immersed in the history of the Incas.

70 km from Cusco and at the heart of the Inca Empire, <em>explora</em> Valle Sagrado is sited in a protected and quiet hacienda, surrounded by cornfields and with views to the mountains.

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

We offer more than 30 explorations for you to choose –on a daily basis and with the help of our guides– how to visit Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. The options include treks, bike rides, and trips by van, with different durations and difficulty levels.

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

Exploring Cusco, Machu Picchu and 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 30 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.

Hotel & Services

    Absolutely perfect!

    The concept of Explora is to experience the Sacred Valley and all it has to offer in the most authentic and active way, combined with the 'luxurious home' that is the hotel. Moreover, this concept has been executed to the highest quality level: the hikes are varied (nature, history, local ambiance), the guides are very well informed and enthusiastic, the rooms are spacious and super comfortable, the food is delicious and healthy, the overall space is spectacular and the service is familiar and attentive. This was our first time at Explora and we will definitely go find another of their destinations.

    Fantastic place to stay in the Sacred Valley Peru!

    This is the second Explora property at which I have stayed (Easter Island being the other). It was phenomenal! Beautiful architecture, excellent service, eco-friendly, great food and terrific, customized daily half-day or full-day expeditions. We were a family group of 8 but also saw couples and other family groups there. Just a delight. The staff was super accommodating to all levels of activity. I HIGHLY recommend you spend a few nights here!

    Machu Picchu and Beyond

    Explora is an understated 5-star property. It has the feel of a modern mountain lodge. Everything is included; the food is wonderful, the linens are lovely, the bar is top-notch, the guides are friendly and extremely knowledgeable and there are many different excursions from which to choose. I highly recommend Explora and we are considering staying at another Explora property.

    Love Explora!

    Explora Sacred Valley is fantastic! Has all the luxuries and special touches of all Explora properties - gorgeous setting, lovely buildings, knowledgeable and helpful staff, outstanding food, personal service... The explorations took us much deeper and closer into the culture of the Sacred Valley than we otherwise would have experienced if we just visited on our own. The guides were outstanding - knew so much about the culture and history. The entire staff gives such personal service - on our final day they created a biking excursion just for my children to fit our time frame. Explora wants people to explore, so it is an active, outdoorsy time, though we also lounged by the pool and enjoyed the spa.
