Hotel Vina Vik
Viña Vik is a testament to modern art and design, a 22-suite retreat filled with art and perched on a hilltop at the center of a spectacular 11,000-acre working vineyard. Every suite boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing you to take in the panoramic views of the valleys, hills and Andes in the distance. Common areas include beautiful gardens and a cantilevered pool which creates the sensation of swimming above the vineyard.
From private wine tastings to guided tours of the winery, to horseback and bicycle excursions through the vineyard and surrounding mountain trails, there are countless activities at Vina Vik. You are also welcome to do nothing, relaxing in the spa or by the pool. The service here is excellent as is the food. Exceptional meals are paired with wines from the vineyard and take place in the vineyard hacienda.
Vina Vik is in Millahue, 2 hours from Santiago. Similar to hotels in Valparaiso, we like to use Vina Vik as an alternative to Santiago. Many Chile itineraries that cover Torres Del Paine, Atacama and other regions can require multiple overnights in Santiago to make the flights work. Vina Vik, only two hours from the Santiago airport, offers a nice change of pace for a 1-2 night stay.
