Situated in the middle of the 11,000 acre VIK Vineyard, VIK Chile is a stunning avant-garde retreat.
Just twenty-two suites, all boasting unique artwork, are available for guests making this an exclusive luxury resort. This striking hotel is perfectly situated on a green hilltop which overlooks the surrounding vines, valleys, forests and hills, all graced with a distant backdrop of the Andes Mountains. As of 2019, the hotel announced the completion of seven new ‘Puro Vik’ cabins. These stylish glass houses were first imagined by architectural innovators, Alex and Carrie Vik. The contemporary architecture with three walls made entirely of glass eliminates the visual borders with the surrounding treetops and foliage ensuring privacy for guests, while simultaneously allowing them to enjoy the expansive and dramatic vistas without interruption. The facilities available to guests at VIK Chile will not disappoint – a full spa with one-of-a-kind vineyard inspired treatments is available, plus a sleek infinity pool, fitness centre, games room and solarium.
For those seeking more adventurous activities, guest can enjoy horse riding, mountain biking and hiking through the stunning native woodland where much of the local flora and fauna can be observed. One unmissable activity is the private wine tasting tour, which is led by an international wine expert and allows visitors to learn about the history of the vineyard and the process of producing wine, whilst sampling some of the best.
Whilst the wine tasting is superb, the gastronomical delights of this hotel do not end there. Guests can choose from four-course dining experiences, to traditional open barbeques set amid the vineyard or in the forest. The majority of the cuisine is based on traditional Chilean dishes, but the chefs here are more than happy to tailor dishes to individual preferences, and all are made with fresh ingredients that complement the impressive wine list. The rooms themselves are very modern, adorned with vibrant artwork and boasting floor to ceiling windows. Each benefits from king size beds with Egyptian cotton ben linen, robes, complimentary Wi-Fi, a mini-bar, a safe and a well-equipped bathroom with a double washbasin, hairdryer and grape seed extract toiletries.
Oozing with contemporary style, VIK Chile is a unique luxury escape for lovers of fine wine and the great outdoors.
