We came to this hotel for our dream honeymoon. And we sure found it. This is like a piece of paradise on earth. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The view was to die for… your in the middle of the mountains, surrounded by clouds and all type of beautiful birds, facing to the whale tail beach. This resort is more than I ever dreamed Costa Rica would be. All the staff here Cindy, Daniel, Adrian, Luis, Jairo, Sergio, Lalo y Roberto are really friendly, happy and will do anything for you. Always calling us by our first name, that was really sweet. That’s without mentioning all the people backstage chefs, cleaning crew, gardeners that we didn’t have the pleasure to meet by name. Everyday was lovely to go to the pool or restaurant the love smiley faces of the staff. The infinity pool is one of a kind. And the food, dear God. They made an special caldo de lomito for me and I couldn’t get enough of it. And they have this native fruit called Mamon Chino that now became one of my favorite fruits. This is definitely for honeymooners. Beautiful sounds of the forest. Quiet and peaceful. I’m really happy this was our choice for our honeymoon! Is the best way to start your marriage in peace, in love and more close than ever. Pura Vida!!

As we made our way up the steep gravel and mud road my partner was starting to freak out, unaccumstomed to the unique roads of Costa rica. By the time we reached Kura she was wondering what was going on and where we were staying. Five minutes later our luggage had been taken to our room, the car parked and we were drinking a tasty cocktail, looking out at the whales tail without a care in the world. This sums up Kura. With sensational views, fantastic rooms and staff attentive to your every need, this is definitely the place to unwind, relax and enjoy time with your partner . We stayed 3 nights and didn't leave the complex, as didn't want to waste the experience. The pool is one of a kind, food exceptional and afternoon mini events, like rum tasting, cocktail making and cooking experiences were a great add on. This is definitely for honeymooners, lovers and people who just want to get away from hustle and bustle. Tucons spotted daily, along with all the other unusual Insects and animals. I think staying for too long might be too much and we were sorry to leave after 3 nights and could have stayed 4 or 5. Its definitely a destination versus a base for exploring the area Recommended highly

Dear Laurence, thanks for taking the time to write this review. We think you summed up the experience really well. From the "almost freaking out" driving up the road to the "never wanting to leave". Thanks for inspiring others to stay with us in the future. Please come back for your extra nights soon. Greetings from sunny Uvita.

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Costa Rica where we spent 4 nights at Kura, and WOW! Everything was impeccable. From the views, the grounds, amenities, staff, service, food. Can't say enough good things. This is a very small hotel, with only 8 suites, so at times you feel like you have the entire hotel to yourself. The staff is very attentive and personable, making sure every moment of your stay is nothing but exceptional. My husband had developed a sinus infection while we were there and the staff went above and beyond to help get us to a doctor and make sure he was feeling well during our stay. They even offered to drive down the mountain to get him ibuprofen (which we declined) but what a kind offer! We 10/10 recommend this hotel for couples looking for a romantic time away. An oasis in the sky with amazing views, food and service. The complimentary bag off Kura coffee as a good-bye gift really topped it off. We'd definitely come back and have already recommended this hotel to friends and family.

Kura is perfectly situated on a mountaintop overlooking the forest and ocean. From your room you’re able to observe lots of wildlife. The staff are above and beyond nice and very helpful. The restaurant is great and moderately priced. I would highly recommend Kura if you’re looking to relax at a quiet property that’s slightly off the beaten path. Great experience

My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary in Uvita and loved everything about our 5 nights at Kura! It’s a unique property that is made so special with its incredible views from every room. We splurged on the master suite, which has its own large private infinity pool that can be heated, and an oversized balcony overlooking the mountains down to the whale tale at Marino Ballena National Park. Every inch of the Kura property is beautiful and maximizes the view. The grounds are well maintained and clean, the rooms are very private & quiet, and the food and drinks are great. The staff were wonderful. It’s easy to communicate with the concierge via an iPad. Whether it’s scheduling tours, a spa treatment, or ordering food to be delivered to the room, they were kind, quick to respond, and happy to help us with the logistics of our stay as much or as little as we needed. We enjoyed Sergio, Luis, Mike, Jairo, Daniel, and Adrian this week and how well they took care of us. We hope to be back!

The Kura experience was nothing but extraordinary. Between making the reservation in January 2002 and our stay in March, we stayed in contact with the staff by email as we planned our trip. They provided just the right amount of information in a timely manner. Efficient and not overbearing. From the moment we entered the property, we were greeted by a warm, friendly staff who were able to anticipate our needs and knew our names and peccadilloes . We had all of meals on the property and never tired of the food selection. The breakfast juices were special. We had reserved a few activities (such as a jungle hike) on our own, but this was entirely unnecessary. All activities could be arranged beforehand by the Kura staff! When we learned that our guide for our tour that we arranged on our own had become ill and could not meet with us, the Kura staff jumped to action and were able to secure another guide. The activities that were arranged by the Kura staff were all fantastic! All of our travel off of the property was incredibly well-choreographed with comfortable rides arranged and a bottle of cold water at our side. An incredible respite in a time of spiking virus.

Absolutely amazing vacation in every way. The views are breathtaking. The service is so personalized and attentive to details. The rooms are very spacious, luxurious, and comfortable. The couples massage experience was heavenly. The ziplining excursion was fun and adventurous and 100% worth it! The food was outstanding. No complaints here- a five star experience for sure!

We visited Costa Rica for a wedding and after staying with our group, my wife and I decided to take 4 nights/days to ourselves and relax at Kura. This place is Amazing! On our first 2 days there my wife could not quit saying “Oh My Gosh”, she was so excited. The hotel is beautifully designed. We loved our room. There is a huge outdoor patio to relax, bird watch or just enjoy the view. The highlight of the entire property for us was the pool and common area view. Sitting down to eat, have some wine and taking in the views was something we looked forward to. The staff here is amazing. Everyone was so helpful and kind. They all remember your name and address you by name. They all are engaging people as well. We loved our talks with each of them. I’m at a loss for words. We normally like to provide some constructive criticism as we are fortunate to travel a lot. The only thing we suggested was a wooden bench in the shower to help ladies shave legs easier. Lol. This place has it all. If you want to chill out, go here, stay here and live it up!!!! Wouldn’t change a thing. We can’t wait to come back!
