Winery & Spa Resort of the Week 🍇🥂🍷: Viña Vik in Millahue, Chile
VIK Chile, the most luxurious hotel in Chile, will inspire you to switch off and unwind.
Vik Chile Retreat
A luxury retreat with exceptional architecture, located at the top of our park, to experience Vik in all its splendor.
Ideally perched on a hilltop in the middle of this most picturesque valley, with the Andes mountains in the distance, Vik Chile boasts 360-degree views out across the surrounding vineyards and nature. Its floating, sculptural roof of bronzed titanium, which was inspired by the mountains, the wind, and the work of Frank Gehry and Richard Serra greets guests as they arrive.
The floating, structural roof of titanium and bronze in a windswept, mountainous setting provides an exceptional view of the valley. Immersed in a 4,450-hectare nature reserve, this is a one-of-a-kind destination in Chile.
Transparent spaces full of life and a central patio with a Zen garden surrounded by colourful flowers welcome our guests. The living room invites people to gather and relax with its notable artwork, including paintings by Roberto Matta and a diptych from Anslem Kiefer’s iconic series The secret life of plants. Experience Milla Milla, a signature glass-walled restaurant with a majestic wine cellar and a phenomenal view of the valley and infinity pool. Discover the 22 themed rooms and 7 private glass-walled bungalows.
