Wellness: Spa Ona at Explora Patagonia is located 100 meters away from the main building, and has a heated covered pool, a sauna, and four open-air jacuzzis with views to the Paine River. You can also choose from a variety of essential oil massages for yourself.
Green Hotel facts: The Chilean owners of the Explora hotels were innovative and forward thinking, hiring local staff and guides who go through 3 to 6 months’ training to be qualified. The hotels’ horses are specially bred for either Patagonia or Atacama, and are well cared for; they’re trained by ‘imprint’ and never by force.
The food is sourced locally, and there are solar panels for some heating. At Explora Atacama, they use solar power for heating their pool; they also have water stations for refillable bottles and conservation programs called ‘Wildcats of the Andes.’ The hotel at Explora Rapa Nui is a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified eco design. They have programs for waste management, and they don’t produce any landfill; instead, everything is sorted, recycled and composted.
