4,000 acres of idyllic coastal countryside near the Uruguayan coast sits one of the most beautiful haciendas in the country. Estancia Vik José Ignacio is 20 minutes from Punta Del Este, a beach town with some of the best nightlife and entertainment venues in South America.
The all-suite hotel is bedecked with art and furniture manufactured by local artists and craftsmen. Estancia Vik offers 12 colonial Spanish rooms that are outfitted with every modern amenity available. The hotel also offers a driver service that will take you to the beach where you can sip on cocktails and revel in the sun or charter private yachts and ocean tours.
If you are looking for tranquility and relaxation, I recommend that you check out their spa, pool, bar, and spectacular restaurant, or take an afternoon or evening stroll at your leisure and watch the sunset. If you are looking for a little bit more exertion, ask about yoga, Ping-Pong, snooker, and other physical activities. If you are like me, and want a bit more adventure, check out Estancia Vik’s daily walking tours, horseback riding tours, kayaking, and polo tournaments.
