Luxury holidays in Uruguay

Although it’s one of South America’s smallest countries, Uruguay entices plenty of travellers with its laid-back lifestyle… and we know some first-class places to stay. The pace is accelerating in the vibrant capital, Montevideo, with new luxury hotels and restaurants popping up across the city among the charming Colonial architecture, but the relaxed atmosphere remains. Those in search of crystal-clear waters don’t have far to go: the glistening beaches of Punta del Este and José Ignacio await, where you can dive into the Atlantic or saddle-up on a trusty steed for a ride across the lush seaside landscape. Check in at one of our carefully curated collection of boutique hotels in Uruguay, and you’ll be in expert hands.

Destinations in Uruguay

  • Crumbling and cobbled, Colonia del Sacramento is a time-capsule of vintage cars, pastel-hued buildings and fishing boats with charmingly peeling paint.
  • Uruguayan capital Montevideo isn’t as beach blessed as its Miami-flash neighbour Punta del Este, but it makes an edifying pit stop. Emigré poets, artists and musicians settled here during its turbulent history, crafting its enlightened cultural scene.
  • A magnet both for tousle-haired, lean-bodied surfers and Cavalli-clad millionaires, Punta del Este is Uruguay’s hedonistic hotspot, famed for its flawless beaches and glittering late-night scene.
