History & Story
Vik Retreats, the stunning retreat and wine-spa at VIK Vineyard in Chile’s Millahue Valley was designed by owners Alexander and Carrie Vik in association with architect Marcelo Daglio. Each Vik Retreat is a singularly remarkable celebration of its individual location and internationally renowned for showcasing cutting edge art, architecture and design. Vik Chile, which debuted in November 2014, is perched on a hilltop amongst valleys and vines, with the Andes Mountains in the distance, strategically positioned to offer 360-degree views across the 11,000-acre property.
Featuring a floating, sculptural roof of bronzed titanium inspired by the surrounding mountains, the wind, and the work of Frank Gehry and Richard Serra, the hotel is visually arresting. The daring design is extraordinary and playful, and as with all Vik Retreats, completely unique and inspiring in its conception. Guests are welcomed through a central open-format living area and central patio garden. Across the garden from the living room is the dramatic dining room with a constructivist wine cava wall, and below guests find a striking stone infinity pool extending over the valley and lake below. Each of the 22 remarkable suites features floor to ceiling glass windows and are marked by pioneering design and an extensive collection of artwork by Chilean and international artists, ensuring a truly unparalleled guest experience.
