Built on an impressive mountain ridge, Kura's tropical minimalist architecture provides a luxurious jungle experience with breathtaking Pacific Ocean views.
Each of the eight stylish one-bedroom villas is glass-fronted and surrounded by lush vegetation, with views of the ocean on the horizon. Neutral interiors are decked out in slate, with bamboo ceilings, teak shutters and local-wood furnishings. Picture yourself in a private exclusive villa, surrounded by nothing but lush rainforest where the only sounds you hear are those of the local wildlife.
Beyond the villas, there is a 19-metre infinity salt water pool, spectacular outdoor poolside lounge and spa room, a restaurant that specialises in organic and locally sourced produce, and plenty of activities and wildlife excursions on offer, including jungle hiking, boating trips, white-water rafting, zip lining, waterfall rappelling and surfing lessons, as well as trips into the biodiversity hotspot of the Osa Peninsula. This Southern Pacific region has the largest area of protected land in Costa Rica, with Corcovado National Park, Caño Island Biological Reserve, the Terraba-Sierpe Mangroves, Manuel Antonio National Park and the Ballena National Marine Park all within easy reach through Kura's hiking and boating trips.
Designed by Costa Rican owner and architect Martin Wells, Kura has admirable eco credentials. The pool is salt-water and chemical-free, energy comes from solar panels, and rainwater is recycled.
