The spa resort of José Ignacio can be found 40 kilometres from the Punta del Este peninsula and is an idyllic retreat where travellers can enjoy its golden sandy beaches and make excursions to the nearby islands of Gorriti or Lobos, inhabited by a large seal population.
If water sports tickle your fancy, the lakes of Garzón and José Ignacio are excellent locations for a spot of fishing or sailing. The iconic Jose Ignacio lighthouse completes the scene. Culture and nightlife abound in the surrounding area, including Maldonado, Garzón, San Carlos, Punta del Este and Pan de Azúcar.
The contemporary bistro, Zodiaco Bahia Vik, was inspired by Uruguayan renowned artist and colorist, Carlos Musso, whose striking ceiling murals command the attention of diners through his mystical depiction of muses, stars and the zodiac.
Guests will enjoy a set menu by Executive Chef Marcelo Betancourt and team featuring a range of refined, contemporary and creative dishes, full of flavors and always using the freshest ingredients of the day, including Uruguay’s grass fed meats, the freshest fish and seafood, and organic vegetables and fruits from Estancia Vik and our local purveyors.
Bahía Vik José Ignacio consists of eleven uniquely designed bungalows, most of which are 2 and 3 bedrooms plus one each of 3 suites and 4 suites tucked into the sandy beach dunes, with one central building around which retreat living revolves.
This main building, built of beautiful Uruguayan grey slate, includes 10 luxurious suites and is defined by open architecture and flowing spaces, encouraging conviviality among Bahia Vik guests.
