About Us

How an Architect & Biologist Created Kurà

A young Costa Rican couple, Martin Wells and Alejandra Umana, were looking for a new challenge.

As an Architect and Biologist, respectively, Martin and Ale wanted to do something that had never been done before in Costa Rica. They wanted to introduce a modern, dynamic architectural concept in hospitality that would push the boundaries of luxury in Costa Rica.

And they wanted to do it in an extreme tropical setting — in beautiful Uvita — away from the city and off the beaten path in Southern Costa Rica where Ale’s biology expertise would blend seamlessly with Martin’s architectural vision.

Ala and Martin’s first concept was to build an upscale hostel, the kind of youthful, 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 and the feeling of exclusive privacy that it conjured. .

The plan changed. It was the perfect sunset, the perfect day, the perfect timing: “We have to do something amazing here”.

And so they did. The result is Ale and Martin’s stunning expression of tropical minimalist design. From the clean lines, lush native gardens, the extraordinary views — and all the smiles and treasured details that bring Kurà to life — you’ll feel Ale and Martin’s fearless and forward-thinking spirit here.

Today, Kurà is Costa Rica’s prized example of contemporary design meets ultimate, sustainable luxury. As an adults-only resort with 8 private suites, Kurà is a destination for couples with great, big dreams, an appreciation for privacy and an appetite for the best things in life.

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

Best of the Best

Sleek, sexy and exclusive, Kurà is an all-suite, adults-only property that highlights architectural design, sustainability and Costa Rica’s natural beauty. Guests are treated to a hilltop perch overlooking Marino Ballena National Park and the famous Whale’s Tail sandbar, making Kurà one of the best destinations in all of Costa Rica to see the migrating Humpback whales. Eight spacious suites feature floor-to-ceiling glass walls for uninterrupted views of the lush tropical vegetation, abundant birdlife and azure ocean. In-suite amenities include two-person hammocks, spacious open-air verandas, double rain showers, luxury linens, creative lighting and private infinity pools in the Master Suites. The public bar, lounge and restaurant spaces surround a stunning infinity pool which features a state-of-the-art underwater sound system. Innovate local cuisine and cocktails are highlighted at the bar and restaurant and ingredients are either grown on site or sourced from local artisan producers. Complimentary daily transfers are offered to the beaches surrounding Uvita and guests need not brave the road to the hotel (which requires 4x4); Kurà is happy to collect guests upon arrival and securely store their cars down in Uvita. Arrive, settle in and enjoy. You may never want to leave your suite, and we don't blame you.

Advisor Tip

Marino Ballena National Park offers the longest Humpback whale watching season in the world. The best time to visit for whale-watching is mid-July to October and December to March.
