Item Description

Pictures do not do it justice! Unique, opulently artistic accommodations at one of two luxury retreats (winner of a 2012 Wallpaper Design Award).

Up for auction is one suite for a two-night stay at either the Estancia Vik Jose Ignacio or the Playa Vik Jose Ignacio, both on the pristine beaches not far from Punta del Este, the "St. Tropez of Uruguay."

Renowned for its rugged landscape, secluded beaches, and bohemian style, unprecedented luxury awaits you at one of these two private retreats in the small village of Jose Ignacio, which was described in the New York Times Travel section as "the chicest spot in Latin America."

Both properties feature stately architecture, remarkable views and gardens, glimmering pools, fine cuisine, and singular guest accommodations that show-off the Vik's impressive collection of contemporary art and design.  

Choose between one of these two breathtaking retreats:

Estancia Vik offers the adventure of Uruguay's traditional ranch experience and stunning nature, the splendor of South America's finest beaches, and the thrill of parties that outlast the sunrise--all amidst the comfort, sophistication, and aesthetic magnifecence of an estate beyond compare.  

Playa Vik is a celebration of its majestic setting perched on the most coveted point on the Uruguayan coastline. Facing west with sweeping views across the Southern Atlantic Ocean and the calm seas of the Playa Mansa, the retreat merges exceptional design, unrivaled location, friendly service, endless activities, and an unparalleled collection of Uruguayan and international art.  

The winning bidder will also receive a copy of Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano's Memoria del fuego (Memory of Fire), his dazling New World trilogy narrating the history of the Americas.
