13 years ago Los Angeles restaurant mogul, television personality and Argentine by birth Adolfo Suaya opened a small beach boutique hotel in Jose Ignacio, Uruguay and like most things he’s built in his life, after some time, lots of tireless attention and care it has blossomed.
The hotel has about three dozen rooms, a café and a breakfast that I will dream about for weeks are all part of this compound a mile or so from the center of Jose Ignacio, an enclave of Punta Del Este, Uruguay. I spent a few amazing days here and it literally invigorated me during what would have otherwise been a dreary and painful California winter.
You’ll enjoy the world class restaurants neighboring the property (La Huella, Mirasma) the eclectic and elegant visitors from around the world who come here (shop at Magma ans Altamar) and if you’re heading south for the winter (or even summer) Casa Suaya is the chicest place to go to that I’ve been.
Staff standouts are Nahuel, Juana and Sergio who is the night shift guy. But I should note that everyone at Casa Suaya is super cool, super chill and super professional. The guests come from all over and although December and January are the best and most popular times to visit I could see myself coming back year-round. It’s just that perfect.
