We had dinner at Playa Vik, while staying at Estancia Vik and the service was very good! Their own wine VIK was superb and the swimming pool with the view was incredible. Is good they let you use the facilities of the other hotels when you stay in one so you can benefit from all. The are so different. Playa... More

What a special architect created this special place. It is more like a big Privat mansion than a hotel.very individual design of the individual rooms. The bath with special marble is extra ordinary. The pool too. At night the stars are shining on the ground. The service is polite and what I liked , always with a smile. Breakfast ok.... More

It's rare for a hotel to get everything perfect, as does Playa Vik. Each of the suites are unique, with it's own character created by a selection of fine artwork and furniture. Everything has been thought out in great detail. It's sublimely set among the beaches of Jose Ignacio, which is the backdrop to a spectacular counter-levered infinity pool. If... More

We have had the privilege of staying in great hotels around the world and Playa VIK is certainly in the top group, depending of course on what you are looking for. Much has been written of the architecture and situation, both of which are perfect but the 'stand out' in our view is the service - not obsequious or posh... More

This is a one of a kind . Situated in jose ignacio this is a exclusive resort more reminiscent of the hamptons than south america . The bungalows are situated on and off the beach . The beachfront is better . Each room has decor and paintings from artists - an art lovers dream some bathrooms had an amethyst sink... More

It's been featured in every travel magazine n its deservedly so. I felt like a private houseguest in an ultra chic n modern compound....every room/suite faces the ocean....mine in the main house(the sculpture) is fantastic overlooking the infinity pool(with lights designed by James turrell) n the ocean. The food for both breakfast n dinner r great. They don't allow non... More

The place is just great. We went the day that high season was just ending so we enjoy a best combination of great hotel facilities all for us. Great food, rooms and it's like sleeping in the beach as the rooms are just there, next to the brach. The endless swimming pool is outstanding, peaceful and all has its great... More

Playa Vik is that hotel you see in the magazines and are not sure it is even real. Until you actually stay there. And when you do....your expectations are met and then some. ( well.....for the most part). From the architecture to the service to the rooms and art and so many details....it is truly magical. Everyone went out of... More

Playa Vik is an ultra-modern art-filled beach house set in Jose Ignacio, a sleepy village near Puente del Este. Enjoy meals whenever you like prepared just for you. Bike riding through the village, awesome infinity pool, beach walks, hippie chic shopping. Visit Estancia Vik for gaucho experience of horseback riding (we rode bikes between the two properties.) Sexy, special, spoiling,... More
