Kura Kura Resort,
Info : Kura Kura Resort
Kura Kura resort is situated in a stunning archipelago of just 27 islands, between Java and Borneo. The resort owns the whole of the 22 hectare island known as Menjawakan, which affords its guests complete exclusivity and privacy. This property offers a true tropical paradise of unspoilt white pristine beaches with superb snorkelling and diving.
Kura Kura is open during the summer months only (May to October) and it can be accessed via a scheduled daily flight from Semarang in an eight seater prop plane, or alternatively by ferry from various terminals throughout central Java.
The resort is scattered across the island, with 3 key room types: firstly, there are cottages of varying sizes which have views over the clear blue lagoon and are a maximum of 15 metres away from the beach. The larger villas each have a private pool and combine tropical luxury with contemporary elegance. The final room types are spacious 2 bedroom family villas. As the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the pool this category is also ideal for a group of friends travelling together.
There is one restaurant/bar on the island, where local seafood is the speciality, but a large menu offering both western and Southeast Asian cuisine is also available. Guests can choose from a number of dining locations apart from the main restaurant including the patio areas, the lobby bar or around the pool - meaning that you can opt for a different social environment each night.
Activities on offer include a Robinson Crusoe style cruise to explore the rest of the archipelago and of course there is a plethora of diving opportunities, with many diving qualifications available depending on previous experience.
A perfect escapism after an exploration of Indonesia, and ideal for honeymoons and couples.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.

Six great and amazingly different hotels - we would happily recommend any of them. We had three excellent guides as well. And we lost track of the number of "Wow" moments. In addition to the obvious, including Paramban, Borobodur and Bromo, we would add our tour of the markets + rickshaw ride in Malang, and having coffee with Mr Rai at the Agung Rai Gallery in Bali. Our guide in Bali, Otok (?) was excellent at explaining local culture, and we left an offering at his family shrine.
