Hotel Overview


On the southern Pacific edge of the Osa Peninsula, directly between the beach and the Caño Island Biological Reserve.

Rooms at Kura Design Villas

Six stylish villas are spread across the cliff edge, each thoughtfully designed by their architect owner. The one-bedroom villas overlook the sea, and offer private balconies, bamboo roofs, floor to ceiling glass windows, and stunning design interiors. All energy is sourced from surrounding solar panels in order to comply with the hotel’s strict eco-credentials.

Food and Facilities

A Californian-style pool bar surrounds the striking salt-water infinity pool, which also offers its own exclusive under-water sound system! Enjoy your meals admiring the sublime view of the green forest, the golden beach and blue ocean below.

Activities at Kura Design Villas

If you’re not lounging in a hammock, swimming in the pool or relaxing at the spa, the nearby wild beach is wonderfully private due to its off-the-beaten track location. Naturalists can explore the jungle on a day trip into the reserve, or go whale watching in the Marino Ballena National Park - aptly named after the humpbacks that visit in season.
