Hotel Overview


Menjawakan island, sandwiched between Java and Borneo in the Karimunjawa archipelago.

Rooms at Kura Kura

The resort has a mixture of cottages and pool villas, all of which offer the upmost privacy, airy rooms and unobstructed views of the ocean, framed by the palm trees that are scattered throughout the complex. Family pool villas are ideal for large groups and come with their own large pool and living spaces. Designed to enhance the natural environment it inhabits, Kura Kura is the perfect antidote to mass tourism.

Food and facilities

Famed for its fresh seafood, caught by the local fishermen each morning, a stay at Kura Kura isn’t complete without sampling their beautifully cooked lobsters and prawns. The restaurant's menu has dishes ranging from Mediterranean-influenced dishes to traditional Indonesian fare. Make the most of the romantic setting by dining poolside. Enjoy a stroll around the hotel grounds, where you can see colourful native parrots, and in the evening, sip on a cocktail and watch the fiery sunsets the island is famed for.

Activities at Kura Kura

The Karimunjawa islands are surrounded by warm waters, blue lagoons and vast coral reefs, making them a breathtaking place to enjoy diving and snorkelling. You can spend the day exploring Menyawakan island, where you can look out for the rainbow of fish that populates its waters, and visit the nearby turtle sanctuary.
