Puntarenas Province / Costa Rica

Costa Rica’s most glamourous hotel, Kura Costa Rica is an eco-friendly boutique hotel with eight luxury and hillside suites located on the southern Pacific coast, where the rainforest-covered mountains meet the pristine coastline. Starting with a commitment to protect the local environment, Costa Rican founders and owners Alejandra Umaña and Martin Wells – a biologist and architect respectively – wanted to share their love of the country’s biodiversity and beauty by creating a hospitality experience that enhanced, yet did not compete with the majestic surroundings. Set on an impressive mountain ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the town of Uvita, Kura was created around a minimalist design that allows the beauty and unruliness of the rainforest to take centre stage. The luxurious accommodations integrate seamlessly with the elegance of the lush mountain-top setting.
