Have you ever lounged beside a warm, salt water pool while the sun dips into the pacific; sounds of the encroaching jungle illuminate the air, as salty sweet sips of margarita kiss your lips? Me neither. GO TO KURA.
All of the previous reviews are correct -- the hotel is VERY special, and you will treasure each day in sleepy Uvita. Martin and Alejandra spent so much time meticulously crafting the incredible structures and landscapes, but it’s the support team they’ve cultivated that truly makes the difference. Ana, Marcos, Adam, Adriana, Rita… we could go on and on.
We spent 7 nights in a Suite Villa, and having been back in The States for 3 nights now, we’re questioning why we ever left. The suites are spacious, quiet, and private. The beds and pillows are very very comfortable with the perfect weight comforter. The double rain shower with sliding door to the deck is a dream come true, and the relaxation continues once you’re wrapped in a cozy towel. The jungle’s alarm clock (a.k.a. cicadas) herald the arrival of each sunrise, and it’s the perfect time to pop a capsule in the Nespresso maker and soak in the environs on the deck. We spent the end of every day in the same spot, and I’ve never before, in any location in the world, seen the entire sky dusted with stars – nor have they ever truly twinkled in succession.
Other highlights to mention: healthy, fresh, delicious food at Kura ; empty, unspoiled beaches (Ballena and Arcos); sunset horseback riding at Playa Hermosa; the wonders of the Whale Tail sandbar; close proximity to Corcovado and Manuel Antonio Parks.
It’s not a matter of “will” we return to Kura, merely “when?”. Our sincere thanks to everyone at the hotel for a truly memorable stay.
