Bahia Vik

BAHIA VIK RETREAT

Bahia Vik is a beachfront retreat in the town of Jose Ignacio, on Uruguay’s eastern shore. The project embraces the landscape of Playa Mansa; the unique bungalows are tucked in among the dunes, and the main house addresses the sea.

The flow between indoor and outdoor spaces is seamless here: large windows, sea-view terraces, and reflecting pools.

Large Bahia Vik luxury lodge on a clear blue lake in Uruguay under clear moonlit sky.

Bahia Vik’s concierge service is staffed 24 hours a day to assist guests with restaurant suggestions, tours and any other requests. The hotel has complimentary WiFi and internet throughout the main building and bungalows.

Bahia Vik is just a 45-50 minute drive from Punta del Este’s international airport, and 15 minutes by car from sister property, Estancia Vik.

BAHIA VIK LOCATION

Bahia Vik is located on the south peninsula of Jose Ignacio, a tiny fishing village with an estimated population of 200, and is fast becoming one of Latin America’s hottest beach destinations. Like Punta del Este, one side of this peninsula has gentle (mansa) waves, while the other (brava) is perfect for surfing.

Walking from one side of town to the other takes about five minutes, including time to pat a cart horse and admire the hand-painted street signs. On the eastern side of the peninsula, the town’s faro (lighthouse) has been guiding ships since 1877.

Exterior lit courtyard of Bahia Vik lined with patio furniture under Uruguay night sky.

After sleeping in, guests in Jose Ignacio can enjoy horseback riding, sailing, and fishing with the locals. Surfing and kite surfing lessons are also available. From July to October, franca whales migrate along the coast here. Toes-in-the-sand restaurants serve grilled fish, rustic pizzas, and juicy casados. Sunsets and stargazing round out most days.

BAHIA VIK ACCOMMODATIONS

As with its sister properties, art is more immersive than decorative at Bahia Vik. Each of the 10 main-house suites and 11 villas features installations by leading Uruguayan and international artists, paired with original furnishings and fixtures.

Each suite has air conditioning, security box (large enough for a laptop), mini-bar, hairdryer, bathrobes, and slippers.  Wi-Fi is available throughout each retreat.

The electric voltage in Uruguay is 220v, should you need an adaptor, guests can inquire at the front desk. There are no televisions in rooms, but there is a game room with TVs and Xbox.

Estancia Vik

ESTANCIA VIK RETREAT

Estancia Vik is a private retreat set among the coastal pampas of Uruguay, seven miles inland from the boho-chic beach town of Jose Ignacio. More than a ranch, the estancia is an experience—an entrée into the distinctive art, architecture, and cuisine of Uruguay.

Designed by innovators Alex and Carrie Vik in association with Marcelo Daglio, the Spanish Colonial-style house measures 50,000 square feet — with 12 singular suites.

Each public space is memorable and worthy of appreciation. The 3,200-square foot central living room is a temple of art, anchored with a flowing marble column sculpted by Pablo Atchugarry. The ceiling is a hand-painted “satellite-scape” of the Uruguayan Coast.

ESTANCIA VIK LOCATION

Estancia Vik is located on Eugenio Saiz Martinez rural road, approximately 7 miles (15 minutes) from the charming beach town of Jose Ignacio.  

The 86-mile drive from Montevideo’s airport takes approximately 110 minutes. Punta del Este’s airport is roughly 50 minutes (46 miles) by road.

The estancia’s surrounding 4,000-acre estate is yours to explore: rolling pastures, streams, a lagoon, and woodlands. Guests of the ranch can enjoy unlimited riding, as well as biking, canoeing, hiking, lawn tennis, polo, birdwatching, and paintball—ever a hit with extended families. 

Guests also have access to the swimming pools and restaurants at Estancia Vik’s nearby sister properties: Bahia Vik and Playa Vik. Wi-Fi is available throughout the main house.

ESTANCIA VIK ACCOMMODATIONS

Each of the twelve guest suites (ranging from 590 to 914 square feet) features installations by leading Uruguayan artists—Jose Trujillo, Eduardo Cardozo, and Marcelo Legrand, among many others—paired with original furnishings and fixtures. Some suites include free-standing wood bathtubs fashioned by canoe makers.

Each suite has air conditioning, security box (large enough for a laptop), mini-bar, hairdryer, bathrobes, and slippers.  Wi-Fi is available throughout each retreat. No televisions in rooms, but there is a game room with TVs and Xbox.

Playa Vik

PLAYA VIK RETREAT

Playa Vik is South America’s most ambitious avant-garde beachfront retreat. The project is a collaboration by innovators Carrie and Alex Vik and Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott.

Playa Vik faces Playa Mansa, in the boho-chic beach town of Jose Ignacio on Uruguay’s eastern shore.

Playa Vik’s heart is the Sculpture Building—an inclined, two-story structure clad in salt-resistant titanium panels. The monumental bronze door was cast by Pablo Atchugarry.

The sea-facing wall is entirely glass, blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors and drawing guests to the pool terrace.  

45-50 minutes from PDP airport, and just 15 minutes by car from Estancia Vik.

PLAYA VIK LOCATION

The peninsula of Jose Ignacio, a tiny fishing village with an estimated population of 200, is fast becoming one of Latin America’s hottest beach destinations. Like Punta del Este, one side of this peninsula has gentle waves, while the other is perfect for surfing.

Walking from one side of town to the other takes about five minutes, including time to pat a cart horse and admire the hand-painted street signs. On the eastern side of the peninsula, the town’s faro (lighthouse) has been guiding ships since 1877.

After sleeping in, guests in Jose Ignacio can enjoy horseback riding, sailing, and fishing with the locals. Surfing and kite surfing lessons are also available.

From July to October, franca whales migrate along the coast here. Toes-in-the-sand restaurants serve grilled fish, rustic pizzas, and juicy casados. Sunsets and stargazing round out most days.

PLAYA VIK ACCOMMODATIONS

The perimeter of the project is flanked by six separate casitas, each with two or three bedrooms, fireplace, private garden, and artwork and installations by leading contemporary artists—Zaha Hadid, Anselm Kiefer, and others.

Inside, you’ll find a bar, kitchen, and library with an installation by James Turrell. The top level has three suites.

Each suite has air conditioning, security box (large enough for a laptop), mini-bar, hairdryer, bathrobes, and slippers.  Wi-Fi is available throughout each retreat. There are no televisions in rooms, but there is a game room with TVs and Xbox.
