Kura Kura Resort
Karimunjawa Islands | Deluxe
Occupying its own private tropical island within Karimunjawa National Marine Park, Kura Kura Resort is, to put it simply, jaw-dropping - and especially perfect for an Indonesian honeymoon.
A selection of 36 private cottages and villas unobtrusively hidden amongst swaying palms and jungly gardens, accommodation at Kura Kura is all about understated tropical luxury. Neutral decor, local stone and dark polished woods define the unfussy interiors, which blend into the outdoor space - cottages are all within 15 metres of the sandy beach, with its warm calm waters, while the villas boast private pools and spacious open-air living areas.
The restaurant is stylish but relaxed, and specialises in freshly caught seafood cooked to Indonesian and Mediterranean recipes. The expert chefs who are also capable of tailoring a meal to your specifications.
The resort’s dive centre offers courses for kids and beginners, as well as refresher classes and open water training for experienced divers keen to make the most of the many nearby reefs and wrecks. Along with the diving, kayaks and snorkelling equipment are available free of charge. The resort’s boat can drop you on nearby deserted islands for the day, and departs on regular jaunts around the coast - often accompanied by the locals (dolphins!) - while private sunset cruises can be arranged for the romantically-inclined.
For couples looking for a castaway experience and maximum privacy, 30 minutes by boat from the main resort is Krakal Island. Set on the white sands of this small, pristine island is a simple cottage where you can channel your inner Robinson Crusoe for one night! The cottage features a bedroom, shower room & toilet and a living area, but no kitchen facilities or electricity. Torches and candles are provided, as well as a picnic hamper with your choice of food for your overnight stay.
