A Traveler, us2 night romance trip
Kura Design Villas, Uvita
Best vacation we've ever taken!!
We came here on our honeymoon and were completely blown away. After a long day of traveling, we were immediately greeted by a friendly staff with hot towels, and our stresses immediately dissolved. The staff here is the most accommodating and loving group of people I could ever imagine - they went out of their way with various surprises (room upgrade, a night in the spa to ourselves with a hot bath and dessert, a bottle of champagne in our room, breakfast on the roof overlooking the oceans and being amongst the birds) to make our trip very special. We spent about half the days by the pool, where the staff members would make us their favorite drinks, and we loved just chatting with them all, learning about the local culture, and hearing all of their stories. The other half of the trip, we went snorkeling, hiking, and horseback riding - three fabulous excursions! I cannot say enough great things about this place but we're already psyched to come back for another trip to Kura! HIGHLY recommended.
