If you're going to learn
to play polo—the preferred sport of royals, billionaires, and oil scions
across the world—you may as well do it in style at the Estancia Vik José
Ignacio in Uruguay. The first polo match ever recorded was played way back
in 600 BC, when the Turkomans beat the Persians, and it's been going strong
every since. To help wannabe chukkers learn the difference between bits and
boots, Vik Retreats is now offering a package that combines some of the best
the luxury hotel has to offer (stunning rooms, South American architecture, an
extraordinary setting) with polo lessons.   On your first afternoon,
you'll learn the essentials of connecting stick to ball while riding a pony.
On the second day, a groom will show you how to prepare your pony to play
before saddling up and learning the ropes of the game. By day four of your
trip, you'll be ready to face off in friendly scrimmage matches. Drinks
will be served at the polo field after each match to toast your Nacho
Figueras–inspired victories—or to drown your sorrows. Plus, there's
no better place to recuperate from a staggering loss than sitting by the
spectacular pool, sitting in the stunning bathroom (really!), strolling
through the exquisite gardens, or studying the impressive art collection at
Estancia Vik. If that doesn't work, there's always the local wine.
Wanna-be polo players can learn the basics with this polo retreat
package from a luxury hotel in Uruguay.
