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...

Kura is by the far the most incredible resort I have ever stayed. We were there at the end of July to celebrate my boyfriend's 60th birthday. Leading up to the trip I was checking the weather reports which said there would be thunderstorms and rain the whole time we were there. (Just a tip, don't rely on the weather...

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...

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.
