Sustainability
Kura contributes to the improvement of the environment by focusing its efforts on keeping the beach clean and by sharing best practices with locals. The first is done by supporting local entities maintain the beach clean and beautiful. While the second consists of holding seminars around town and in local schools on how to keep the local ecosystems healthy. Moreover, Kura employs fully biodegradable products and uses local teak wood for furniture.
Kura hires its staff exclusively from the local area. It provides them with yearlong contracts and access to a company doctor in Uvita. Because the hotel considers that education goes hand in hand with sustainability, staff members enjoy flexible working schedules which allows them to pursue higher education studies. Aligned with this, the hotel offers employees cross-training courses which makes it possible for them to apply for internal promotions.

Under the guidance of a nonprofit organization and with the help of guest’s donations, Kura supports a school in Uvita. In addition, during the summertime, the hotel helps the local fair collect litter. All the money raised during the fair goes towards community development projects.

Furthermore, Kura believes that educated guests can be agents of change. Which is why the hotel features tours to showcase its sustainable initiatives and empower vacationers on how they can implement best practices at home.
All the food consumed in Kura is either bought from local sources or grown at the hotel’s organic greenhouse. Supported by the Japanese Takakura composting system, and avoiding pesticides, Kura’s little garden yields microgreens, kale, peppers, basil, spearmint and more. The hotel also offers its guests 100% Costa Rican spa products and bathroom amenities. On a design level, the Boruca masks which decorate Kura come from a local tribe.
To reduce energy usage, solar technology is employed to heat water for guest suites and staff rooms. As well, there are solar panels under the pool which are used to feed two batteries that the hotel uses in case of power outages.
To reduce its water wastage, Kura’s infinity pools are cleaned with a special filter system and organic products. In addition, wastewater is purified onsite through a special biological system, which makes it completely safe and suitable for irrigating the gardens.
Kura manages its waste by following the four R’s: Refuse, Reduce, Reduce and Recycle. Given that the first step towards reducing waste production is refusing its creation, the hotel has banned plastic bottles, and plastic straws have been replaced with locally made bamboo stalks. Kura also works with suppliers to cut out unnecessary packaging, calculating exactly how much food the restaurant needs and whatever can be recycled or reused always is. The restaurant leftovers, for example, are composted onsite.
