Built on an impressive mountain ridge, overlooking the whale-tale-shaped sandbar of Uvita de Osa, Kurà Design Villas is an exclusive boutique hotel on the South Pacific Coast, where the Osa Peninsula rain forest covered mountains tumble on to pristine beaches. Featuring six luxury villas, an infinity salt-water pool and a spectacular outdoor poolside lounge and Spa area, Kurà is the perfect place to indulge your senses.
All six of its exclusive villas reflect a clean, tropical, minimalism style and share an open-floor design featuring a king sized bed, a spacious private terrace with a glass veranda, a double rain shower with ocean view, bathrobes and towels, a sliding-glass-door façade for a gentle, free-flowing sea breeze, ceiling fans, AC system, binoculars, free wireless internet, private minibar, wine cellar, espresso coffee machine and a safety deposit box.
Living in harmony with the surroundings, the hotel incorporates responsible alternative sources of energy such as solar panels, solar water heaters, rainwater collection systems, energy efficient fans, and LED lighting. The elegant pool lounge and bar area offers an uninterrupted, 180-degree view of the Pacific horizon. Kurà guests can discover Costa Rican fusion cuisine at the restaurant, which has developed a concept of using local, primary, organic tropical ingredients to present a creative yet simple menu.
The Spa, with its serene setting and magnificent view to the sea, offers a selection of wellness and beauty treatments: facials, massages, body wraps, scrubs and deep tub soaking. There is no doubt that nature blessed this region with countless natural attractions ideal for eco, cultural and adventure tourism. Half-day whale watching or snorkeling tours are offered, depending on the season. You might see the pilot whales or the bottlenose and spotted dolphins, which are residents of the Uvita coast.
For day trips, the hotel is close to both Manuel Antonio and Corcovado National Parks. Ballena National Marine Park and its beaches are all within a 15 to 25 minute drive. The small village of Uvita is located between Dominical, a world-class surfing spot, and Ojochal, a town known for its exquisite culinary tradition.
The Kura Design Villas experience is recommended only for adults. Those under 16 years of age are not permitted, but they are welcome when one party occupies the hotel. Here, ensconced in tranquility, luxury, privacy and comfort, the city is left behind and genuine relaxation begins. Therefore, there is no television, but each villa is equipped with an iPad and free Wi-Fi. Books, movies, magazines, and newspapers are also provided.
From an in-house chef talented in typical Costarican food fused with superb culinary expertise to a concierge team ready to meet your every need, a stay in these luxury rainforest villas will be an unforgettable experience.
