An exclusive couples retreat overlooking Ballena Marine National Park


It’s rare for a hotel to become a destination on its own, but the pure lux of Kura will have you wanting to stay in. With only a handful of guests here, you’ll have as much privacy as you please – swim into the horizon, sip a Jaguar Colada at sunset, and take in the mountain air. You won’t want to leave anytime soon.



Come here to retreat. Rejuvenate with a wellness treatment in our open-air spa, or swim into the horizon in our infinity pool. And when the sun goes down, cozy up in your private villa overlooking the forest and ocean below. See what it’s like to Stay In at Kura Design Villas.


With 7 beaches in the area, there’s no shortage of sea adventures here. Catch some waves at the Whale’s Tail. Snorkel in the Caño Island Biological Reserve, or see the famous migration of Humpback whales. See more Activities & Tours at Kura Design Villas.


In your private villa, you’ll enjoy luxurious amenities and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. And no matter how many pictures you see of the famous shower that opens up into a view of the ocean, you just have to experience it. View our Villas.

They Say

  • "There is not one detail that hasn't been carefully thought out, it is one of the top three most beautiful hotels I've been to in the world. The design, the food, the view, the service is all five star and then some."

    Ivette - Dominical, Costa Rica
  • "I will say that the ocean view is indeed the paramount feature of all six rooms...and no matter how many pictures you see of the famous shower that opens up into a view of the ocean, you have to experience it."

    Rebeca - Texas, USA
  • "Because Kura is a boutique with only 6 villas, you are truly made to feel like you own the place. The pool is hands down the centerpiece of Kura. One word to describe it: breathtaking."

    Blake - Cleveland, Ohio
