Santiago, Chile - February 4, 2014: Scoring a hat trick in any field is no easy task. explora has earned the distinction of having all three of its properties ranked among the top ten in the Top Luxury Hotels in Chile in the 2014 Travelers’ Choice Awards by TripAdvisor. Well-known among travelers for their striking architecture, remote locations in Patagonia, Atacama, Easter Island, and their nomadic journeys through the Altiplano to the Uyuni Salt flats in Bolivia, and the crossing of the Andes, to Salta in Argentina, explora has built its reputation on providing authentic travel experiences.

Travelers' Choice Awards are based on millions of reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travelers. Paula Rodriguez, explora’s marketing manager says: “We are extremely proud to receive this award. An endorsement from our guests is a true achievement and motivates our teams to go the extra mile every day.”

The explora lodges have constantly distinguished themselves by their commitment to excellence. explora runs its own School of Guides to teach their guides special skills for each lodge; breeds and trains its own horses; built its own observatory in the Atacama desert to make the most of some of the planet’s clearest skies; and is committed to the environment and local communities.
