— How would you describe Estancia Vik and 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.

Estancia Vik in José Ignacio is a small boutique hotel with just twelve individually designed private suites providing an authentic luxury retreat for those seeking to experience the real Uruguay.”

— Please tell us a bit about the history of Estancia Vik and its architecture.

Maximiliano: “Estancia Vik was designed with the vision of creating a private home, an approach that has made for a uniquely residential property. Every design detail was carefully thought out, something which can truly be seen and felt.

Uruguayan architect Marcelo Daglio designed the traditional Spanish colonial structure of Estancia Vik, the magnificent foundation of the retreat, and a traditional Uruguayan barbeque was built to mirror the traditional tin galpons. This clear focus on authenticity throughout the building process is one of the reasons the retreat fits in effortlessly with its stunning backdrop.”

— 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 the hotel.

Maximiliano: “Estancia Vik sits on 4,000 acres in the rolling countryside, where guests can horseback ride, explore the diverse wildlife, mountain bike, hike, canoe, fish, play tennis, or take polo lessons on our private polo field... There is also a 20m-long swimming pool, a gym, a spa and a game room.

Through our Experience Concierge program, Estancia Vik also allows vacation guests the chance to explore José Ignacio through the eyes of a native, with insider looks at the town’s hot spots and most insider attractions.

The hotel also has a chapel created by Carlos Musso, which can be used for weddings, christenings and other special events.”

— Please tell us about the rooms available to your vacation guests.

Maximiliano: “Our small hotel provides twelve private suites, each with a unique design, integrating original art conceived for the space by one of our selected artists. Every suite is distinct from the others, each providing a different feel but equally spectacular aesthetic.

The suites are almost too unique to compare, but the Kike Badaro Suite has always been a favorite – it is warm, and welcoming, with a particularly relaxed atmosphere. Very few things can compare to taking in the views from its patio and just admiring the idyllic surroundings.”

Celebrating its location and highlighting Uruguayan culture in a way that can not be matched, Estancia Vik offers guests an unrivaled entree into the art, culture, and cuisine of Uruguay.”
