Playa Vik Jose Ignacio

Playa Vik Jose Ignacio, an ingenious jumble of luxury and art on the shoreline in Uruguay

South of Brazil, in the centre of South America’s eastern seaboard, the weather becomes beautifully temperate and the ocean washes ashore on sandy beaches that stretch for miles. This is where the nation of Uruguay stands, wedged between Brazil and Argentina, on a land filled with low hills and slow rivers. The coast of Uruguay is long and even, facing south on the Atlantic, with the occasional rocky capes interrupting some of the best beaches in the world. One of these capes is the locale for the village of Jose Ignacio, and where the low cliffs of the cape meet the yellow sands of Bahia Ignacio, you can find the stylish luxury boutique resort of Playa Vik Jose Ignacio.

The Playa Vik estate includes two outstanding examples of eco-friendly construction, including apartments with turf roofs that form an L-shaped pavilion, and an almost avant-garde facility that serves as both living space and beach art, telling entitled ‘the Sculpture.” Art is everywhere in the Playa, and the resort also provides its guests with excellent luxury serVikes and amenities, from designer bathroom materials to bespoke tours of the region. In the springtime, which in this part of the world occurs between August and November, a lovely garden of flowers erupts from the roofs of the pavilion homes, perfuming the entire estate.

During your stay at Playa Vik Jose Ignacio, you will have the choice of nine rooms, each of which contains a lively display of original artworks from established Uruguayan artists. The rooms in the turf-covered builds are the Casas, and they are known as Casas Mar, Casas Ebano, Casas Raices, Casas Jose Ignacio, and Casas Tierra.
