How to Get There
I booked the Azulejo room because of the view, the water reservoir was dry, but the view of the mountains in the background was pleasant.
Even if you are not into wine, it’s nice to be in the countryside, surrounded by art and architecture.
The Food was good, service was very attentive, the portions were huge especially for one person.
It can get a bit noisy around the restaurant during meal time and around the pool area, so bring earplugs if you want to catch up on some sleep.
I had a nice horseback ride down to the vineyards, because I was too lazy to walk!
The downside was getting there, it’s not far but it’s pretty expensive! 600 dollars for a car ride from and to Santiago! It costs the same for a roundtrip ticket to Easter Island!
This was my first Vik experience, it got me Interested in discovering their other properties.
Although we were not overnight guests at this extraordinary and unusual hotel...we spent the day, and were treated with great hospitality...our guide Camila took us on a walking tour through the vineyards the organic vegetable garden..before our cooking class. Chef Pablo was our chef/instructor for a very fun two hours of making empanadas from scratch....even though I had a broken arm!...The gourmet fillings....allowed us all to make really different empanadas...they were incredible and they wrapped them up for us to take back to Canta Agua for our evening chateau relaxo! We then had a late and beautiful lunch in the restaurant.
The buildings themselves are all works of art including the winery itself, and they house numerous and varietal art works throughout...very modern...Frank Gehry ish. quite fantastic ...it was a wonderful day...unique!
We spent three nights at Vineyard Vik in Chile in late summer, March 2018. In every respect, we found the experience to be unique and exceptional - the setting (idyllic), the hotel (beautiful design, only 22 rooms, each designed by an artist), the service, the food, and the Vik wine. We’ve stayed at other 5 star hotels and Vik Chile is honestly a 6 or 7 star resort. We rented a car and drove from Santiago but found we didn’t need it as there was more than enough to do on the expansive estate (spa, pool, horseback riding, Vik wine tour, we even had a kitchen tour!) and the drive to the remote area was a bit of a challenge owing to the sketchy cell service. Best of all, the Chilean people are welcoming, thoughtful and quite skilled at caring for your every need. If you are looking for a special setting and exceptional accommodations, check out Vik Chile.
This was just what our family of four needed during the holidays, a place to relax, drink wine, read a book and not much else. Staying here is like staying a wealthy friends private home, you don't feel like you're at a hotel except for the housekeeping and all your meals are cooked for you! The food is really truly exceptional. The grounds are stunning-we rode bikes thru the vineyards one morning. The vineyards themselves are massive and very impressive. The Vik wine was quite good as well.
There are nice distant views and some eclectic art at this Vik Retreat in Chile! There is an uncommon titanium roof on the hotel, the wide array of eclectic art throughout the common areas and suites, and the distant views of vineyards and mountains. But many much nicer and far better operated high-end to luxury boutique hotels can be found around Chile and in South America that far surpass this hotel in our own experience!
We left this retreat frustrated and very disappointed. It was advertised as a luxurious versus the quality we found present. It is a lovely hotel facility in a pretty valley but it is inadequately staffed to do luxury retreat service especially at its very high prices or even at half the price. We saw no evidence of commitment to competitive food, drink, service. We chose this luxury retreat specifically to eat fine cuisine with fine wine in a luxurious setting, to enjoy the great outdoors, to enjoy the pool. The setting was luxurious but not the all-inclusive cuisine, not at all. There was no indication in the food quality that a top trained chef was there at all during our stay. Inedible beef and lamb that was not tenderized or otherwise checked out before serving. Fish and beef plated in the exact same sauces and presentation despite the obvious differences. No choices as is found in competing luxury hotel restaurants in South America. So the food was non-competitive generally and completely disappointing specifically - not fine cuisine or even near high end restaurant quality. The friendly and delightful young serving staff was not competitive due to inadequate training - which we felt was absolutely not their fault at all. So for us, too many things just did not fit the advertised high-end luxury retreat label and definitely not enough for the high cost to stay. Too bad as it has unlimited upside potential.
Perhaps this retreat is just a seasonal activity by choice and cannot compete for the hospitality and chef talent it reasonably deserves? The staff whether in the kitchen, activities, front desk were adequate for non-luxury but not for a high price retreat. But again there is an advertising, price and product relationship that the staff were not seasoned or trained as one might reasonably hope to deliver a great outcome for guests.
Views! The location in the Colchagua/ Millahue wine valleys is quiet and remote and it is as naturally appealing as our visits to Napa and Sonoma Valleys, the Rhone Valley from Lyon to Avignon and Montalcino to Montalpuciano. But to us, this highly touted luxury retreat hotel does not compete for a higher rating than average to below average.
