If there’s anything that goes better together than wine and cheese, it’s wine and luxury hotels. Set in the Colchagua Valley and surrounded by vineyards, Vik Chile is a remote escape where you can slow down and relax over a glass of fine wine. The place is a brainchild of Alexander Vik, a Norwegian-Uruguayan billionaire who had a dream of combining a designer hotel with a winery that would put Colchagua Valley on the map of world-class winemaking.
Each of the 22 suites is entirely unique and not just on a surface level. The Viks poured all their energy in finding the right collaborators to shape the spaces: among them Takeo Hanazawa, a Japanese artist who worked on Shogun Master Suite, and Chilean Realist artist Alvaro Gabler who spent six months covering Gabler's Grisalla suite in art from floor to ceiling (quite literally). The furniture was sourced personally by the owners and ranges from salvaged antiques to commissioned one-off pieces for specific suites. No matter which room you choose, you’ll feel like you’re staying in a miniature art gallery.
Vik Chile is a full-board hotel so your stay comes with a buffet breakfast, lunch and three-course dinner paired with wine from Vik’s winery. The complimentary activities include a guided tour and wine tasting at Viña Vik, as well as horse riding, biking, paintball, trekking and bird watching. If you want to try something new, head to the spa for vinotherapy treatments designed especially for this hotel and using products made from Vik grapes. Or just relax at the infinity pool and admire the mountain views, you’re on holiday after all.
