PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

Kurà hotel in Uvita has the perfect hotel pedigree: a husband-and-wife architect and biologist decided to open their idea of a perfect, sustainable, stylish getaway. The resulting six suites are the stuff of sleek design mags: contemporary, open-plan villas with floating beds, exposed showers and a balcony that leaves little between you and sweeping views over the jungle to the Pacific Ocean.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features

Breakfast is the most traditional, and typically includes plantains, eggs, tortillas and local cheese.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Certified divers should head straight for Isla del Cano, an hour from shore, which is one of the world’s best spots for swimming with manta rays, as well as turtles, dolphins and a rainbow of tropical fish. The hotel can arrange a day trip. On land, rappel down the nearby waterfall, accessible by horse or 4x4. The hotel can also arrange surf lessons, white-water rafting and a boat trip through the Sierpe River’s mangroves. Ballena Marine National Park, a 25-minute drive down from the hotel, is a sandy, seemingly ideal beach that is excellent for paddle boarding or a swim.

Transportation 

You'll find Kurà near Uvita on the southern coast of Costa Rica, overlooking the Pacific from its rainforest perch 5km from the main road.

Planes 

Quepos, a 50-minute drive away, offers the most flights – you’ll most likely be catching a connection from San José. Sansa (www.flysansa.com) operates a flight from San José International. Nature Air (www.natureair.com) flies from San José Municipal. Palmar Sur airport, a 40-minute drive away, is closer than Quepos, but is only open seasonally, and offers fewer flights.

Automobiles 

Confident drivers can navigate the roads, though a 4x4 is mandatory – the ride to the hotel can be tricky. The scenic drive from San José takes about four hours. Quepos and Palmar Sur airports have rental cars available, and the hotel has secure parking in the village of Utiva, 15 minutes away (there’s a shuttle service to the hotel).
