Playa Vik


Sitting pretty on a sea-facing point of the dramatic Uruguayan coastline, Playa Vik is a private beach hideaway where local culture and heritage merge with high-end hospitality. Guests will be drawn to walk the calm beach, hike the rugged inland or simply kick back and relax in this easygoing bohemian setting. The estate features 19 suites, all decorated with local and international artwork, a fireplace and a private garden. Travelers will join like-minded guests in the communal living and dining spaces, sink into a good read in the main house’s library, or choose the night’s vintage in the 40-foot-long wine cellar. Here's a special touch: A 75-foot-long, black granite pool alights in a celestial map of the southern hemisphere created by small optic light points within the pool floor. Experience Concierges, who are experts in the region, are on hand to provide guests with stimulating activities and tours in the region. Not to be overlooked: the extensive art from the owners’ collection of leading international and Uruguayan artists.


The main building is flanked by six small houses or casas, each comprised of two or three bedrooms for a total of 15 suites, available individually or as the entire casa. Each casa features a fireplace, art-filled interiors and has a unique design scheme, blending the interior and exterior as fully retractable windows lead out to unique private gardens. Three of the casas house three bedrooms, a living room and two private gardens or terrace, two have two bedrooms, a living room and two private gardens and one has two bedrooms each with its own private garden. Dividing the casas are large Bougainvillea plants that grow upwards towards the casas’ “living roof” which cover and sweep across the undulating earth roof-scapes of the casa pavilion, creating a striking panorama of natural color.
