Playa Vik


Beachside style

A striking architectural retreat, located in the fishermen town of José Ignacio with panoramic views of the ocean and magnificent sunsets.

Playa Vik sits on the Mansa beach in the bohemian chic village of José Ignacio, on the most coveted point of the Uruguayan coastline. José Ignacio, located just 19km northeast of Punta del Este, is emerging as Uruguay’s premier international destination, drawing travellers to enjoy the pristine beaches, nature, rugged landscape and relaxed, bohemian setting.

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 throughout. The Sculpture includes three-bedroom suites and is flanked by six houses or “casas”, each comprised of two or three bedrooms and private gardens. Each casa features a fireplace and has a distinctly unique design and art filled interior. Enjoy the cantilevered pool, spacious spa and the natural wonders of Jose Ignacio’s beaches and vibrant life. Indulge your senses with dishes of Uruguay overlooking the southern Atlantic with views down the Playa Mansa beach to Punta del Este.
