The photos of this place are gorgeous, but actually being here is just breathtaking. You're 10,000 feet above sea level, in line with hawks in flight and the tops of the surrounding rainforest. It is an impressive and incredible setting, second only to the fantastic and ingenious architecture. Every aspect of the common areas and villas has been well thought...

Delicious food, we had a class with the chef Rodrigo about spices. Great breakfast, and above all outstanding service. They would go out of their way to please you! Special thanks to Adam,...

With the most magnificent view and incredible architecture Kura Design Villas just kept on impressing us through our 5 day stay. Friendly service, great food (fresh ceviche and tuna dishes were my favorite), fantastic infinity pool and overall ambiance were unmatched. The villas were clean, stylishly furnished with an amazing indoor outdoor shower with a view. Paradise. Oh, the view....

Kura is perfection - from the moment you arrive to the sad moment you have to leave, you'll feel as if you're part of an amazing and genuinely happy family. Kura has unforgettable views and sunsets, incredibly luxurious villas and gourmet food, but you'll probably remember the people over the place. Everyone consistently goes above and beyond, making every moment...

Kura Design Villas are hidden away high on a hillside with only 6 individual rooms. Approach is only by 4x4 vehicles as the road is steep. The hotel will collect you from the bottom of the road if you have your own car. Infinity pool with an upper floor dining area with a 360 view for romantic dining. Delicious food...

Great location, great room, great pool, good food and attentive service in a small top class hotel. We loved our time here - a very relaxing few days in our busy tour of Costa Rica. This an exceptional place to stay and we would thoroughly recommend Kura

Dear Ocho_Pinos, thanks for the concise and "to the point" review of your recent stay with us. We appreciate the 5 star review from such a frequent traveler as yourself.

I'll never stay at a nicer place! Kura wins all the prizes and Costa Rica in general might be my favorite place on the planet. Make the trip, spend the money and stay at Kura. Loved every second of our time there. One of the best decisions of my life!

This hotel is not really a hotel, it is much more than that. With 6 rooms only, you have the feeling to be at home, except is very likely much better that home! It is intimate, charming, impressive, welcoming and truly fantastic. The room is perfect, well thought and very private. The views are the best you can imagine. Every...

Kurà is such a special place, a totally unique experience. Everything said in the last review by @lisa is spot on. We had four glorious nights and were extremely lazy, not venturing away from the hotel the entire time! We had intended to explore the area but simply couldn't drag ourselves away from that jaw-dropping view, the most perfect of...

Dear Anna, thanks for taking the time and "seconding" @lisa's review. Yes, that was a great review also. We loved the fact that you were just lazy and relaxed. Why not? On the other hand, we have many guests that are out and about almost every day. The area of Uvita, just a few miles south of Manuel Antonio offers...

I am writing this review next to the infinity pool overlooking a spectacular view of the lush green jungle as it meets the Pacific Ocean. There are balmy breezes blowing and not a cloud in the sky. It's low tide so the whale's tail is visible and every so often a colorful butterfly or a flock of squaking green parakeets...
