Sister property to Estancia Vik, Playa Vik is very much a work of art in itself, with wacky architectural design and fantastic sea views.
Made up of six houses - three with three bedrooms and three with two bedrooms - surrounding a sculpture in the L- shaped pavilion, all the rooms have beautiful seafront view terraces. Each casa features a fireplace, art-filled interiors and a unique design scheme.
With nationally acclaimed chef Marcelo Betancourt in the kitchen, Playa Vik serves some of the finest cusine in South America, with a focus on freshly caught seafood, locally grown vegetables, and plenty of Uruguayan beef. The property's indoor dining room has large glass windows that look out on to the beach.
Facilities include the pavillion, housing the 40 foot long wine cellar, games room, spa, gym and BBQ area. There is also a bar that leads out to an infinity pool and loungers, bike hire (a nice way to get around Jose Ignacio town), tennis, canoeing, surfing, a firepit and birdwatching.
Why we love it
Enjoy your own space and open planned living? The houses blend the interior and exterior as fully retractable windows slide into the walls and let the rooms become one with their own private garden.
