Our favourite rooms
Each villa is contemporary and open-plan, with teakwood panels, bamboo ceilings, giant floating beds and wide balconies that hold a hammock built for two. Of them, the top-floor Suite Villas are the brightest, with the most dramatic rainforest views.
The pool is one of a kind: a sharply rectangular saltwater infinity pool lined with dark-green Balinese tiles. It offers bird’s-eye ocean views, a trio of semi-submerged sunloungers and calming under-water music. The lounge beside it is an ideal spot for afternoon reading and cocktails.
Bring a swimsuit for the hydrotherapy tub at the spa, and surfing gear for tackling the perfect curls nearby. No need to bring binoculars for glimpsing passing toucans and monkeys: every room has a pair at the ready.
Each room is equipped with an iPad that is fully loaded with spa options, the day’s menus and information about the property, not to mention music and books for enjoying by the pool.
Leave them at home: Kurà is best for adults.
Kurà uses drip technology to water the lush gardens, relies on solar power and harvests local ingredients for the restaurant.
