Vik Chile


Overview

The terroir of Chile’s Millahue Valley is known by natives as the “place of gold.” Travelers reap the rewards when they arrive at the avant-garde Vik Chile retreat and its holistic wine spa. Underneath a wavy, reflective bronzed titanium roof, this museum-style hotel is the mastermind of Norwegian-Uruguayan billionaire, Alexander Vik. Design elements spare no detail down to the wildflower meadow roof envisioned by the owner’s wife. No two suites are alike; all feature eccentric, modern artwork and floor-to-ceiling windows framing exquisite views of the heritage vineyards, lake and the Andes Mountains. Meals at this surrealist, wine-centric escape are complemented with vintages from the property’s VIK vineyard, and highlight locally grown ingredients with an emphasis on slow-cooked, South American favorites. Oenophiles will love the guided tastings. Sophisticated travelers can saddle up for a horseback ride through the countryside, opt for a wine-infused spa treatment or tour the mountain up close via bicycle. Days are unhurried at this chilled-out Chilean escape that is high on viticulture and style, food and art and most importantly, inspiration.

Accommodations

No two suites are alike, and each of the 22 suites feature exclusive artwork by Chilean and international artists, most of them created specifically for the retreat in cooperation with Alexander and Carrie Vik. Every suite boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing guests to take in the majestic views across the property. Art and design are central to the interior spaces and showcased throughout the retreat, from each piece of furniture, to murals and installations, to sculpture and paintings alike.
