Do not check-out without stopping by the parillero for barbecued steak.
Estancia Vik Jose Ignacio is a strikingly modern boutique hotel in a classic colonial-style setting in Southern Uruguay, where Marlboro country meets Saint Tropez.
Each of its 12 private suites is luxuriously appointed, and no two are the same. Opened in 2009, the resort features funky, unique design and decor throughout by contemporary and world-renowned Uruguayan artists.
The brick-barreled dining room is equally vibrant, featuring a one-of-a-kind wood-and-glass floor overlooking the wine cellar, a traditional Uruguayan "parillero" barbeque, and inspired local cuisine.
Beyond its artfully decorated walls, innumerable excursion opportunities await. Enjoy the outdoor granite swimming pool, private polo field, and stable of riding horses, or go canoeing, kayaking, or windsurfing on one of the nearby streams and lakes.
With its spacious natural setting, lively coastal atmosphere, and close proximity to beaches and lagoons, Estancia Vik Jose Ignacio is fast becoming a premier international destination.
