Jimmy Buffet said it best: There’s nothing like a change in latitude to change your attitude. Like a winter break in Punta del Este, Uruguay’s hip beach resort. Where the sunny southern hemisphere summer season has only just begun.

Overlooking the golden sands of Playa La Brava, there’s no better place to base a beach vacation in the chic resort town than The Grand Hotel Punta del Este.

Frolic on the beach or around the hotel’s two pools. Indulge in exquisite treatments, work up a sweat or simply relax at the Grand Spa & Fitness. Savor an incredible bounty of land and sea at the ocean-view Brava Grand or the elegant Lighthouse Restaurant. Grab a gourmet coffee, midday snack or Uruguayan wine and beer at the Lobby Bar.

The Grand Hotel also offers a choice of rooms ranging from Garden View and Ocean View to Ocean Front with a wall of large, curved windows overlooking the Atlantic and seventh floor suites with breathtaking ocean views.
