Interview By:

— How would you describe the Vik Retreats in a nutshell?

Maximiliano: “Vik Retreats are a collection of incredible properties revolutionizing the way in which travelers experience South America. With art as their focal point, each retreat is truly remarkable and a celebration of José Ignacio, the fishing village where they are located.”

— How would you describe the architecture of Playa Vik?

Maximiliano: “Playa Vik’s architecture is awe-inspiring. Carlos Ott, the Uruguayan architect who assisted in executing the vision for the property, helped to create something spectacular. The 
sculpture building, which is the heart of Playa was designed to open and capture the vibrant views and to blend the interior and exterior so that in a way they become one. This is one of my favorite parts of the property. It is an ode to art and beauty, and José Ignacio’s peaceful atmosphere.”

— What does luxury mean to you?

Maximiliano: “I have always thought of luxury as meaning the highest quality. We use the phrase ‘esto es un lujo’ (this is luxury) to describe landscapes, happy moments, and beautiful experiences. I don’t think luxury necessarily means material goods anymore.

My philosophy is to always strive to go above and beyond — Vik Retreats have always provided an exceptional experience, but if we can continue to pursue excellence and to welcome guests as if it were their own home, then we will continue to provide them with an unmatched experience. The goal of Vik Retreats is not to sell rooms, but rather provide guests with memories they will cherish for a lifetime.”

— Please tell us about the facilities and services offered at Playa Vik.

Maximiliano: “Playa Vik and Estancia Vik work in tandem, one of the many exciting features of the properties. Located just 5 miles apart, they are able to provide a beachfront experience alongside the country ranch escape, an aspect our guests really enjoy. Located along the water, Playa Vik allows guests to canoe, kayak, fish, and to enjoy water sports including surfing, kite surfing, water skiing and sailing. Guests of Playa Vik can also use our game room, spa and gym, and for those who desire to take in the countryside, they can hop over to Estancia with ease and enjoy the many activities available there.”

— Please tell us about the suites at Playa Vik.

Maximiliano: “Playa Vik has the central sculpture with four suites, and six casas each with two or three bedrooms. The sculpture is just incredible – it is so unique, and absolutely striking. I have never visited another hotel or retreat that offers anything like it. Choosing a favorite casa is difficult because they are all so unique, but I tend to lean toward Casa Jose Ignacio — its art, design and privacy are perfect for families like mine that have young children.”
