A truly unique luxury getaway! Immerse yourself in the rich natural beauty and vibrant culture of Uruguay

Located on the peninsula of Jose Ignacio, 12 kilometers northeast of Punta del Este, the Playa Vik Resort and the Estancia Vik Resort ensure an escape like no other where you can experience the beauty of nature’s contrasts from beautiful pristine beaches to rugged open spaces, rolling hills, winding rivers and exceptional sunsets as you discover the rich cultural heritage of Uruguay.

The Playa Vik, a beachfront location and its sister resort the Estancia Vik, located 5 miles north on a 4,000 acre ranch opened in February 2009 and are fast becoming a premier destination for international travelers. Owners Alex and Carrie Vik have blended their deep commitment to environmental practices with personalized service and luxury. Various works of art are featured throughout the resort providing guests an opportunity to view and experience a contemporary art collection by acclaimed Uruguayan and international artists.

The accommodations, designed and decorated to perfection, blur the lines between outdoor and indoor living ensuring maximal natural ventilation both for heating and cooling and include retractable windows, the innovative use of solar technologies (Playa Vik), and wind and geothermal energy as well as a water recycling program.

Indulge in local Uruguayan cuisine from fine dining to traditional barbecues created by the resident chef using fresh organic ingredients from the resorts’ Organic garden, locally sourced fish, eggs and organic meat as well as a selection of fine wines, which as of 2012, will include the world’s first holistic wines from the Vik Holistic Vineyard in Chile.

Dance till dawn, sleep in till noon, lounge by the pool, stroll on the beach, surf, play in the waves, indulge in decadent foods and wine, learn to play polo, horseback ride, take in nature’s exotic sights and sounds and master the art of laid back luxury!
