This Stunning Chilean Resort Features 19 Villas Inspired by Art
Encompassing 11,000 acres in Chile’s verdant Millahue Valley, a two-hour drive south of Santiago, the boutique hotel Vik Chile and its adjoining winery are known for an intoxicating blend of art, architecture, and wine. Now owners Alexander and Carrie Vik are expanding the on-site accommodations with a concept called Puro Vik, a cluster of 19 glass-walled villas embedded in the property’s rugged hillsides.
“We wanted guests to really live in the treetops with grand panoramic views, while also maintaining privacy and comfort,” says Alexander. Reflecting the owners’ commitment to art, each residence boasts a unique theme (including rooms devoted to Piet Mondrian, Dale Chihuly, and Utagawa Hiroshige) plus access to the resort’s existing amenities, among them a breathtaking infinity pool and cutting-edge “wine spa.” Also, stay tuned for the upcoming Galleria Vik Milano in Italy, the fashionable brand’s first foray outside of South America.
