I discovered Estancia Vik whilst riding out in the wilds of Argentina... galloping across the pampas with a family from England they insisted that once I went to Estancia Vik, everything else would pale in to significance. And it did. With their glowing recommendations and an introduction via email to their now friend and the manager Agustin I flew out...

We stayed at the Estancia as well as the sister property Playa Vik and loved the combination of a beach hotel and a ranch all in one week. The Estancia is a 10 minute drive inland fom la Playa and feels like a totally different world. Our rooms at each property were designed by the same Uruguayan artist Marcelo Legrand...

My partner and I stayed at the Estancia Vik and had a fabulous time. The staff are incredibly attentive and make you feel that you are the only ones staying at the property. Of course, that could be because there are only 12 guest rooms. The design is wonderful. The common rooms are huge, filled with art, and are irresistible....

It does not get much better than what we just experienced at Estancia and Playa Vik. The second annual Art Trip with a wonderful group of participants and two of the most amazing leaders who are amongst the top artists in Uruguay. The combination of all that these two wonderful resorts have to offer, staff that feels like family, art...

We stayed for 3 nights at the Estancia Vik just outside Jose Ignacio, north of Punta del Este on the Atlantic coast of Uruguay. Let me begin by saying the hotel's website does not do it justice. After some difficulty locating the property (the gate is marked by a very tiny sign far down a country road from the beach)...

Might be the coolest hotel that I've ever stayed in. Beautiful setting, fantastic staff and wonderfully cared for horses that you can ride at your leisure. Their sister hotel in Jose Ignacio, Playa Vik, is also really, really cool. Not cheap, but worth every penny. Uruguay is wonderful as well.

After staying at a bed and breakfast near the La Barra area, it was lovely to arrive at Estancia VIK for our last week in Punta del Este. The service and the staff is incredibly helpful and warm and the rooms leave very little to be desired. Jose Igancio is a bit of a hike away from the main bar...

We spent a full week with some of our most privileged team members.

Only a few years ago, the Uruguayan coastal town of Jose Ignacio was a simple fishing village. Today it gushes with boho chic and fills up with folk in-the-know from around the globe. The vibe is laid back even during the packed high-season, and offers the opportunity to stay in what are I have found to be some of the...

beautiful accommodations showcasing the very talented artists in the area.Each room unique and a work of art itself! Service was wonderful and all staff were delightful--especially the general manager,Agustin and Max, who oversees the Estancia and the Vik. We had a great time, kayaking, horseback riding, trips into town etc.! I hope I will be able to visit again!
