The ultra luxurious Hacienda Vik is a cutting edge contemporary art hotel on a young and thriving vineyard.
The Vik hotel group's properties in Latin America strive to offer something unique and idiosyncratic to their guests. Their service-oriented hotels in Uruguay and Chile are first class properties with a contemporary slant which is modern-art focused.
The property in Millahue in Chile's wine-cultivation region is situated on a vineyard (they aim to produce first class wines within 10 years). But instead of following the trend for constructing wood-based accommodation which fits readily into the natural environment the Norwegian owner has created a space-age building of concrete and glass, bright and breezy with views of the vineyard, lakes and forests beyond from the floor-to-ceiling windows of the 22 individual rooms and suites. Decoration is bold, without being fussy: your minimalist room may just have one stunning, even provocative, work of art.
It's situated on the top of a small hill but is by no means an eye sore. There's a lovely infinity swimming pool and, in addition to wine-tasting and tours of the futuristic winery close by, many outdoor activities are on offer and there is a regular spas as well as a 'wine spa'.
