This hotel is not really a hotel, it is much more than that. With 6 rooms only, you have the feeling to be at home, except is very likely much better that home! It is intimate, charming, impressive, welcoming and truly fantastic. The room is perfect, well thought and very private. The views are the best you can imagine. Every...

Kurà is such a special place, a totally unique experience. Everything said in the last review by @lisa is spot on. We had four glorious nights and were extremely lazy, not venturing away from the hotel the entire time! We had intended to explore the area but simply couldn't drag ourselves away from that jaw-dropping view, the most perfect of...

Dear Anna, thanks for taking the time and "seconding" @lisa's review. Yes, that was a great review also. We loved the fact that you were just lazy and relaxed. Why not? On the other hand, we have many guests that are out and about almost every day. The area of Uvita, just a few miles south of Manuel Antonio offers...

I am writing this review next to the infinity pool overlooking a spectacular view of the lush green jungle as it meets the Pacific Ocean. There are balmy breezes blowing and not a cloud in the sky. It's low tide so the whale's tail is visible and every so often a colorful butterfly or a flock of squaking green parakeets...

My husband and I have visited Kura 3 times. We love this intimate and incredible hotel. The Kura team are the best. They go above and beyond for every guest. The rooms are beautiful, with incredible views. Getting up the mountain to Kura is an adventure, to say the least. But once you have done it, piece of cake. You...

Happy New Year. Thanks for your third visit and this great review. We hope it encourages other travelers to come visit us in 2017. We know from conversations with guests that they have had concerns about Kura's location and the somewhat difficult road access. But as you pointed out, it is not all that bad once you know it, and...

My wife and I came to Costa Rica last Xmas for our honeymoon, we stayed at three different locations, finishing our trip with a few nights at Kura. We have travelled quite a bit and I must admit that this was THE best hotel we have ever stayed at. The setting is straight out of a fantasy, the constant acoustic...

My husband and I love to travel, and this trip was a very last minute, spur of the moment adventure for my birthday. Because of Kurà, this turned out to be THE best trip we have ever taken. We decided to rent a car and make the drive from the airport to the hotel ourselves. When we arrived we were...

This is in my top three hotels from all my travels and has been in that position since 2013! This was our second time at Kura and I'd love to go back again. It's hard to put into words just how lovely this place is. Now there's no denying it, the road up to the hotel is just awful. Last...

Dear Travelbugreviewer, Wow. What a review. Top 3 all time hotels is quite an honor for us. Thanks. This should probably be mandatory reading for everybody that is considering a stay at Kura and is comparing us with other options in the area. First of all, thanks for the comment about "it is so worth it". The road is tough,...

Kura Design Villas is a little bit of Heaven on Earth. I was there with a friend for 3 nights. The modern contemporary arquitecture meshes perfectly with the surrounding jungle and view of the Pacific Ocean. There is attention to detail everywhere and in everything at Kura. Divine simplicity.
