Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Estancia Vik is nestled in a 4,000-acre estate just outside Jose Ignacio.

Rooms at Estancia Vik

Estancia Vik has 12 enormous, modern private suites, located across two wings of the colonial-style, whitewashed hacienda. Each one is different, but they all feature paintings and sculptures commissioned from a celebrated, avant-garde Uruguayan artist, and they all allow you to walk out onto the patio, while the larger Master Suites have outdoor patio showers too.

Food & Drink

The estancia’s dining room is suspended as though in space above a magnificent vaulted wine cellar. There’s also a traditional Uruguayan fogon, or barbecue hut, given a modern twist with contemporary murals. The dishes on offer are a representation of the best of Uruguayan cuisine, from pastries and pizzas made in a clay oven to fresh seafood and local fruit and vegetables.


The estate has a swimming pool made from dark granite, a spa and even private polo stables.

Activities at Estancia Vik

Take to a horse, a mountain bike or a kayak to explore the countryside that surrounds the estancia on all sides – and then cool off on the private beach. Golf, tennis and sailing are also on offer, or you can simply put on your hiking boots and set off into the wide green landscape. Windsurfing, kite-surfing and fishing can all be enjoyed on the neighbouring lagoon.
