Playa Vik Jose Ignacio  

A Paradox of Nature and Elegance
Playa Vik is a paradox; it’s a bit like house-sitting a rich friend’s vacation mansion and checking into a five star luxury hotel at the same time. The buildings are stainless steel, glass, and cantilevered above the ground, yet are more like a natural mountain than a neo-art sculpture, with the living roof of Uruguayan wildflowers perched atop.

Occupying a stunning stretch of coastline in Jose Ignacio—once South America’s best-kept secret—the hotel is within reach of all the pristine beaches, pumping cities, and oversized steaks for which Uruguay is renowned.

One doesn’t need to ever stray farther than the black granite pool, stretching to infinity, defying gravity above the beach, to fill a day. With a small gym, full service spa, and wine cave, Playa Vik offers its own rewards. The Sculpture building is furnished with tables cut from semi-precious stone, striking sculptures, and features a library and formal dining hall, where food arrives in the form of freshly caught seafood and Uruguayan beef, accented by locally grown veg.

The six casitas, light filled, two and three bedroom suites, are each as striking and contrary as the complex itself. Four master suites, walled in glass, are within the Sculpture building, each carved from stone and concrete, with open fireplaces, full length windows which disappear all the way into the stone, turning the bedrooms into open-air decks, and ocean views. Murals, oil paintings, and sculpted furniture, like a jacaranda wood bathtub that looks like something ancient pharos or emperors might have bathed in, complete the novelty of each.

Elevated 100 feet above the beach, with a view of the coastline as magnificent as the structure itself, Playa Vik Jose Ignacio offers all the natural elements offset against five star luxury that could be imagined.
