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. The place is quite, peaceful, private, intimate, perfect to get in...

My girlfriend and I recently married, and one thing that always brought us close was our love of travel. We've travelled quite a bit over the past several years, and I can tell you with no hyperbole that Kurá Design Villas is every bit as amazing as it seems. The resort itself seems surreal, just in how you arrive to...

We traveled across Costa Rica (San Jose, La Fortuna, Manul Antonio, Uvita), and this was by far the best hotel in any category. Pros: - service: all the staff go beyond expectations to make you feel like a king/queen. Seriously, I had not seen this type of customer care and treatment anywhere in the world! - Since there are only...

Kura Villas is an amazing resort! My husband and I stayed there in mid August for a week for our honeymoon. The resort is like a dream- situated on a mountain, with an infinity pool that overlooks the ocean. The resort has an open-air design, which is quickly transformed in case of rainy weather. Our rooms were cleaned thoroughly every...
