I loved all about this hotel and we had an amazing experience. The staff is beyond friendly and they are very thoughtful. One thing I valued a lot is their vegetarian options and disposition to make dishes vegetarian upon request. Sometimes is difficult to find delicious non-animal meals and this hotel was great at that. I even had vegetarian sushi. I would give it more starts if I could.

To try to put down the experience at Kùra in words is really tough. If I could I would give it 6 stars instead of 5. The staff really exceeds your expectations in all parts of your stay - from check in to check out. During our stay we enjoyed all our meals in the restaurant as well as one massage each at the spa. Truly amazing relaxation.

truly superior experience all the way around (accommodations, service, views, food, and privacy). The staff are more like a Family than co-workers. a little hard to get to but worth it. we recommend Suite #7. possibly the nicest room we have ever stayed in. Pura Vita!

I almost don’t want to review Kura because I don’t want the secret to get out, but this place is just amazing. There are only 8 rooms (suites really) and it’s adults only so there’s no way to feel crowded. From the welcome drinks to the service staff remembering our names and favorite foods the experience was personal and as welcoming as humanly possible. In all directions there are epic views, abundant trees and wildlife. The rooms are modern and eco-conscious with stylish accents and huge windows. The food is wonderful and made on site with excellent attention to detail and dietary restrictions. I have Celiac Disease and the staff were all very careful with food preparation. I felt like I ate like a queen all week and didn’t get sick once. I really can’t say enough wonderful things about Kura and I hope you’ll stay here if you are able. It will make a lasting impression and you won’t be sorry. A week after we got home we had already made plans to return.

This vacation was like a dream come true. The beauty, the attention to detail, the friendliness. I truly didn't want to leave. Not only was the staff very professional, but they also made us feel like family. I enjoyed learning about them as much as I enjoyed the scenery. They anticipated our needs and even went so far as to surprise my beau with aloe after getting sunburn and moving the umbrellas constantly throughout the day to provide him with shade. We almost never return to a destination twice, but for Kura I believe there will be an exception.
