The Most Glamorous Romantic Resort in Costa Rica

A boutique, adults-only hotel high in the Uvita rainforest. Kura is an exclusive destination in its own right. Our 8 Luxury Suites, tropical minimalist design, and panoramic views set the stage for ultra-personalized luxury, relaxation, and privacy.

“The most glamorous romantic resort in Costa Rica” – Forbes Magazine

An intimate eco-friendly, boutique hotel with luxury hillside suites located in the lush Uvita hills, just a short way from Manuel Antonio, Kurà overlooks the Pacific Ocean, the untouched beaches of the Marino Ballena National Park, and the famous Whale’s Tail sandbar formation.


At Kurà – a resort truly ensconced in tranquillity, luxury, privacy and comfort – the city is left behind and genuine relaxation and romance begins. Countless sustainable practices keep operations green and make Kurà the epitome of intelligent luxury, a hotel blending seamlessly with the rainforest’s elegance.

Leading Costa Rica’s Design Movement
How an Architect & Biologist created Kura Martin Wells and Alejandra Umaña were looking for a new challenge. As an Architect and Biologist, respectively, Martin and Alè wanted to introduce a new architectural concept to Costa Rica—Tropical Minimalism. Something that had never been done in Costa Rica. And they wanted to do it in an extreme tropical setting. Where Alè’s biology expertise would blend seamlessly with Martin’s architectural vision.

Alè and Martin’s first concept was to build an extreme Hostel. A dynamic place with skateboards, bikes and daredevil trails. But when they were brought to the top of a mountain in Uvita, they instantly fell in love with the spectacular view. The plan changed. It was the perfect sunset, the perfect day, the perfect timing: “We have to do something amazing here”.

And they did. The result is Alè and Martin’s stunning expression of tropical minimalist design. The clean lines. Lush native gardens. Extraordinary views. You’ll feel Alè and Martin’s fearless and forward-thinking spirit here.

Today, Kura is Costa Rica’s prized example of contemporary design meets ultimate, sustainable luxury.

As an adults-only resort with 8 private suites, Kura is a glamorous destination for couples with an appetite for the best things in life.

Because when you do something that’s never been done before, incredible things can happen.
