Reviews for Vina Vik
I was fortunate enough to spend a few days during my recent honeymoon in absolutely amazing Vina Vik, some 100 miles south of Santiago de Chile. This may have been, if not the best experience ever, then certainly at par with other luxury, boutique properties I have visited before, such as Post Ranch in Big Sur. Beautiful hotel, smartly designed with a keen eye for modern art, 44 square kilometers of unmatched natural beauty, rolling hills, vineyards,all of it overlooking Chilean Andes. An experience of being One with the nature, of that satisfying solitude so hard to find these days. Helpful, omnipresent staff always ready to assist. Excellent, elegant, opulent Vik wine. Fabulous spa treatment. Restaurant worthy of a Michelin star. After being there for half an hour, my wife and I were looking at our calendars to figure out the timing of our next visit. Absolutely stunning.

We spent 3 days at this magical place just 2 hrs outside of Santiago. Although we aren't oenophiles, we had an amazing stay. Highlights: --horseback riding through the vineyards and in the valley --the art & design featuring an anselm kiefer in the lobby --the vik suite with a corner suite with views of the valley --a tour of the winery where this passion project comes to life with modern industrial architecture and technology Areas of improvement include the food (decent but not memorable), and the overall service which as others have noted, seemed generally laid back. This is fine for us as we weren't expecting the Aman. We noticed this in particular since we stayed when there was a family with a young toddler on site who left cars and blocks all over the yoga room. The common areas were overwhelmed with their shoes and toys and left that way for some time. One last note - if you're going to stay here, spend the extra $$ to upgrade to a corner suite and research the room options. All of the rooms are unique and quite different so if you end up in a room not to your liking and the hotel is fully booked, you're SOL.

An architectural gem of a building, with a superb restaurant, set on a hill overlooking a valley full of vines. What's not to like ? Throw in some interesting art work, an infinity pool, loads of activities like horse riding and walking and you have a fantastic place to get away and relax. And the staff truly make the place! They are helpful, engaging and made a great fuss of our 14 month old grandson.

Hard to top this place for overall experience. Stunning contemporary structure with totally unique architecture juxtaposed over hundreds of acres of vineyards. We splurged for a corner suite -- just do it, it's worth the daily views you'll gasp over. Vik owns the entire valley, I was told, so as you dine upon exquisite local cuisine (with Vik's excellent wines for lunch and dinner) you'll gaze upon the natural beauty 360 degrees around you. Great low-key activities available, so if you're looking for a high-energy bar with swinging nightlife -- it's not in the Cachapoal Valley. But if you're a wine lover who appreciates finer tastes and a clear focus on getting the terroir into the bottle you need to come here. Every suite, corner or not, is unique so look at the online photos to get an idea of what you can book. The corner suites were all done by different designers so you're guaranteed of a one-of-a-kind abode. This is NOT a place for kids, in fact I they may not even allow them. Honestly, they'd destroy the vibe if any had been here when we were. Which by the way, is the best time to go (fall = harvest time!).

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this hotel and found our stay to be the highlight of our trip! Despite the initial sticker shock, the hotel is actually relatively 'affordable' in comparison to a similar hotel in the US. We hired a car service to take us to/from the hotel, taking us approximately 2-1/2 hours each way from Santiago. I noticed the location was accurate on Google Maps, though it looks like it can be tricky to find once you exit the main highway. I would highly recommend arriving during the daytime as there weren't any large signs I could see pointing the way to the winery. Even upon arrival, you could have easily missed the gated entrance. When you finally reached the hotel, you already know you will be very well taken care of during your stay. The staff who greeted us (a very handsome guy, I forgot his name) was super polite, efficient and personable. We were served fresh raspberry juice while he checked us in and helped organize various activities included in our stay. If you are into design and favor magazines like Wallpaper or Dwell, you will absolutely love it here. The hotel and rooms are driven by architecture, art and design. Though room layout is identical, each room is designed by different artists and thus quite dramatically different from each other in terms of design. I would highly recommend looking at the pictures on their website and selecting a room in advanced as there were only a handful of rooms I personally liked. A staff member also allows you to peek inside rooms that are not occupied if you really want to see them. We upgraded our room to one of the 5 master suites and pre-selected Fornasetti. We fell in love with the room in being bright, airy and spacious. Most importantly, the design fit our taste. I absolutely loved the floor to ceiling windows with the most breathtaking view of the valley (?) below. Pictures on their website were accurate, but much more impressive in person. The biggest reason I upgraded to a suite was having a larger bathroom with a floor to ceiling window (standard rooms don't have any windows). I admittedly took very long showers as I admired the view. I also loved the unique open shower that had no enclosure. All of the meals are included and we found the food to be fantastic. A lot of the fresh fruits and vegetables are from their garden, so you will eat whatever is in season. Breakfast is buffet style (assortment of pastries, cold cuts, cereals and fruit) with cook-to-order hot items (eggs, bacon, potatoes). Lunch is "family" style where you select an entree (a fish, beef or chicken dish) and share various sides (a pasta or rice dish and 2 or 3 vegetable or salad dishes) with your table. Wine is included during lunch. Dinner is a 3 course menu and included a bottle of their premium Vik wine. As noted above, the front staff helped arrange various included activities, such as a private tour of their garden, the winery and horseback riding. All of the staff who took us on each activity were so friendly and kind and really made the experience memorable. They were happy to answer questions or assist us in any way (my husband was too tired to walk back to our room from the garden and the agriculturist did not hesitate to drive us back) and didn't act like they were forced to entertain us. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities. Additional things available inside the hotel include a pool, pool table, game room, a small fitness center and yoga studio. Yoga classes are available at a charge, but you are welcome to take any of the yoga equipment and practice on your own. You can also hike or bike around the large property. We also took advantage of their spa services and received a massage there. The spa is small and sufficient enough to just receive your massage and head back to your room to shower/change. The only negative thing I would say about this hotel (I try to be fair) is that you are in the middle of nowhere. If you are looking to explore outside of the hotel within immediate vicinity, you would be disappointed as I could not find anything of interest in driving by. According to GPS, it would take over an hour to get to the Colchagua region where all of the wineries are located (approximately 1-1/2 hours to Vina Lapostolle). Vina Vik can arrange for transportation, though at a cost. Having said that, once you arrive, you really don't have any reason to want to leave. By the time you do all of the activities, there really wasn't as much downtime as I thought there would be. Two nights was sufficient time to enjoy everything, though I think 3 nights would have been preferred. If I had to stay here again (and I definitely would), I would still choose Fornasetti Room or Vik Room as these two had the best views in the hotel.
