Casa Suaya is a contemporary style beach resort set in the exclusive Punta del Este near Jose Ignacio – the hottest up-and-coming beach in the world. Attracted by the celebrity scene, Adolfo Suaya, a Brazilian-born and LA-restaurateur created an almost-beachside estancia on the rolling pampas and sandy dunes. Incorporating authentic design aesthetic with protruding large teak terraces that overlook the Atlantic, it lies close to the best restaurants and yet far enough to be exclusive.
Set within two separate structures Casa Suaya has 28 suites and three thatched roofed bungalows. All rooms have native furnishings, stone fireplaces and some rooms have a small kitchenette but all have sitting rooms with large picture windows. There are two swimming pools to relax and there is a lovely private beach at the front of the property. Dine at the in-house Butia Restaurant, which serves local style menu using wood-fired ovens or head out to Punta del Este for fantastic restaurants.
A typical day at Casa Suaya include leisurely lunches at 3 p.m., late afternoons sunbathing at the beach and midnight dinners of braised lamb and sweet potatoes. Guests who want a busier place can visit the nearby Punta del Este, a fashionable beach shack where everyone goes. But José Ignacio appeals to those who prefer the wittingly bohemian, informal atmosphere of dirt roads, hand-painted street signs and small bed-and-breakfasts.

When to go November to March is the ideal time to visit weatherise. The very popular peak summer season from Christmas to mid-February gets booked up well in advance so best to plan early. During this period the whole place comes alive and there is a great party atmosphere. It is worth bearing in mind however that during the quieter season - including November, many of the area's bars and restaurants are closed which does tend to restrict eating options to your hotel.
