When the concepts of ultimate luxury and astonishing design met with environmental awareness and sustainability, Kura Design Villas was born. Architect Martin Wells and biologist Alejandra Umaña blended their visions and inspirations, personalising their commitment to nature and art in an extreme tropical setting. From the extraordinary, breathtaking views to the custom-built glass, double-rain shower in each seductive villa, every detail at Kura was crafted to bring guests the most exclusive and unique experience possible.
