Playa Vik José Ignacio sits on Playa Mansa (or ‘calm beach’) in the bohemian-chic village of José Ignacio, the most coveted point of the Uruguayan coastline, and affords panoramic views of the landscape and ocean beyond. José Ignacio, located just 12 miles northeast of Punta del Este, is emerging as Uruguay’s premier international destination, drawing travelers to enjoy the pristine beaches, nature, rugged landscape and relaxed atmosphere. The avant-garde beachfront retreat features a central “Sculpture” building which is the heart of the compound, boasting an important collection of international and contemporary Uruguayan art. The culinary offerings at Playa Vik celebrate the dishes of Uruguay, and guests are encouraged to dine family-style in the indoor dining room or on the outdoor terrace overlooking the barbeque. For exclusivity, luxury and calm, look no further than Playa Vik Jose Ignacio.
