about Kura Design Villas, Uvita de Osa

Opened in January 2013, Kura Design Villas proves to be the perfect, luxurious eco-hideaway, right where the tropical rainforest tumbles into the Pacific Ocean. Seamlessly blending exquisite, lavish design with the natural environment, Kura is the result of the imagination of Alejandra and Martin, an architect and a biologist.

Built on an impressive mountain ridge, with views to the ocean, it is built in one of the most biologically intense areas on earth according to the National Geographic. Inside you will find bamboo ceilings and teak shutters, with exclusive rooms featuring local furnishings.
