The Best Places to Stay in José Ignacio for a Beach Break

  • The Posada del Faro is right on a stretch of pristine, white sandy beach, just outside José Ignacio. There are just 15 rooms, all whitewashed with beamed ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. You’re close to surf school too…
  • The Posada Arenas de José Ignacio is just a five minute, relaxed stroll from the beach in the sleepy village of José Ignacio. There are just 12 rooms, decorated in a contemporary style. José Ignacio is close to a gorgeous lagoon, and a great kitesurfing spot too.
  • Bahia Vik sits right up against the coast, on a grassy hill above the sand, but with the majority of its floor-to-ceiling windows facing right out over the ocean. The accommodation is in a collection of beach bungalows and suites, decorated with clean lines and large pieces of contemporary art. There’s choice of pools as well as the beach and you’re just out of José Ignacio.

  • The Casa Bikini is a ten room boutique bolt-hole between the forest and the sea at Punta del Esta. Each of the suites have been individually decorated and they’re named after writers — book the Coehlo suite for a private terrace and bath. There’s a fantastic library and an pool too. And you’re just moments from the beach.
