Playa Vik is unique in the world. An architectural masterpiece with stunning modern furnishings and art; set on a charming beach in a locale that must have been what the Hamptons, St. Tropez and St. Barths were like before they were discovered; and with a staff as pleasant and accommodating as any we've encountered in years of travel. Our suite was perched over the beach, with floor to ceiling windows on two sides, a luxurious platform bed with top-of-the-line Frette linens, an art deco desk, a huge bathroom with hand-carved maple tub and sinks and a free-form rain-shower area, and an enormous walk-in closet that could have handled our entire wardrobe, not just what we brought on the trip. Our three days there were the most relaxing of any holiday we've had, with the manager Augustine and his English speaking staff making us feel very special. The delicious buffet breakfast (with Nespresso machine, homemade bakery items, a waffle maker and eggs to order) started each day. The small but well-equipped gym with windows to the lawn allowed for good work-outs. And about the wonderful staff: From arranging and even accompanying us on a horse ride at the gorgeous sister property, Estancia Vik, to arranging for meals at very special local restaurants, to providing bikes for a coastal ride by miles of beaches, and much more, we have never had better attention at a resort and certainly never had such personal attention. Moments after our arrival, a platter of local cheeses arrived with drinks, along with an offer to unpack our luggage for us. Even housekeeping was better than most, sensing when we were out of the room to do service and turndown, so the room always was in beautiful shape. We especially appreciated the stated effort to introduce us to Uruguayan culture and food, so that our visit was not just a generic beach resort stay. Cannot recommend Playa Vik more highly based on our experience.
