Faro José Ignacio, Uruguay
Rarely does man-made design steal the show from natural splendor. Located above unspoiled Mansa beach in Uruguay, Playa Vik threatens to do just that. This avant-garde boutique hotel astounds with its cantilevered titanium and glass building, walls made of pulsating lights, hand carved soaking tubs, and a black granite pool that seemingly reflects the southern hemisphere’s night sky. With every minuscule detail oozing design appeal, the battle between nature and architecture has never been more attractive.
