My fiance and I spent 8 nights, 9 days at the beautiful Kura celebrating our honeymoon and we can not stop talking about it! It was truly an amazing trip that we will never forget!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and I feel like my biggest mistake was not at least doubling the length of our stay. As she is currently finishing up her deluxe spa treatment with Magda (we had back massages and facials done), I'm over here really hoping I don't ACTUALLY have to leave. First off, one of... More

Unfortunately we could only stay 2 nights but that really wasnt enough, from the moment we arrived everything was perfect.

We spent four nights of our honeymoon here. We rented a car from nayara springs and traveled down to uvita and up the gravel road. It was the most amazing hotel we have ever stayed.

The word "boutique" is loosely used by many hotel chains and their under the radar properties- Kura, however, is the gold standard by which those places should be measured.

We spent four wonderful nights at this unique, luxurious and beautiful hotel, which is perched high on a ridge top above the beach in southwestern Costa Rica. This is a great place for honeymoons or a lover's retreat, as everything about this adults-only hotel is beautiful and romantic. Our room was built into the hillside and--like the entire resort-offered breathtaking... More

Dear Matthew, thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review about your recent stay.
