This was our second visit to Kura Hulanda Lodge and I have to say that on arrival, we were saddened at how neglected the hotel had been. We learned that the new hotel management company had just signed a 10 year contract and were now determined not only fix the damage but to also to take the hotel to a higher standard of luxury. We still found that food in the restaurants was somewhat lackluster, but without a permanent resident chef, that is no surprise.
The staff were wonderful - many of them were re-hired by the new management company. So nice to see Nahira, Ivory and Ruth from our last visit.
The staff and the location made it easy to forget the temporary flaws and my wife, daughter and I all had a wonderfully relaxing location enjoying the quiet seclusion of the resort itself.
It is clear that efforts are well under way to restore this resort to its former glory. Manual, the new general manager, gave us his personal attention when it was needed (not the often!!) and explained his redevelopment plans to us. I warned him that we may well return next year, in which case, I would give him a personal performance review!!
We just booked to return for 10 days starting June, 2015, so Manuel - you are now on notice my friend.
Looking forward to seeing you all again next year!!!!
