Puro Vik: Contemporary Design
Vik Retreats is an internationally-renowned collection of boutique hotels.
These retreats are renowned for their genuine hospitality, settings–beach, wine valleys, pampas–and focus on design. Each room features installations and original artwork by leading contemporary artists.
“The most beautiful thing in the world is, of course, the world itself.”
Inaugurated in December 2018, Puro Vik represents the newest Vik concept by curators Carrie and Alexander Vik.
Perched on the rolling hills of their Vik Chile estate, Puro Vik includes 18 sleek, glass-walled villas with panoramic views of Millahue Valley vineyards.
Floor-to-Ceiling Glass Villas
Each villa features floor-to-ceiling glass, eliminating visual borders with the surrounding treetops and foliage.
The unique design and spacing of the cabins ensures privacy, while allowing guests to drink in the dramatic vistas of the valley below.
Bedrooms and bathrooms open onto private terraces, blurring the boundary between interior spaces and the outdoors. Guests can enjoy fine Chilean wines beneath the warm sun, serene moon, and brilliant constellations of the Southern Hemisphere.
Puro Vik houses feature a free-standing glass closet, museum-quality design furnishings, and wide-planked hardwood floors that continue from the bedroom to the terrace.
Each bathroom is unique, with marble curated from around the world. Handmade Japanese washi paper, set inside glass walls, creates elegant separation between the bedroom and bath.
Forward-Thinking Design & Art
The roof of each house is covered with wild grasses or solar panels, depending individual sun exposure and orientation.
In keeping with the Vik Retreat philosophy, avant-garde art and design play an integral role in Puro Vik experience.
Each Puro Vik house has a unique personality and theme, among them:
- Artifacts and Antiquities
- Pop Art
- Japan with Utagawa Hiroshige
- The Art of Glass with Dale Chihuly
- 18th-century France
- Holographic Art
- Bohemian Design
- Neon and Light
- Site-Specific Art Installations
- La Piu Belle (An Homage to the Most Recent Viña VIK Wine)
