Kura Kura Resort

Located in the middle of the Karimunjawa archipelago, north of Java, and offering one of the largest lagoons in the area, Menjawakan is a very green, private tropical island that is exclusively occupied by Kura Kura Resort.

Situated between Java and Borneo, and still unknown to mass tourism, Karimunjawa archipelago is a national marine park comprising 27 islands that offer the feeling of natural and remote beauty. Kura Kura Resort re-opened its doors in June 2008 with a new ownership team and new management after seven months of renovations that enhanced the natural beauty of the island and upgraded the property with a passion for authenticity and attention to the smallest detail.

The resort features 21 spacious and luxurious Pool Villas that measure a spacious 320 square metres, and two family Pool Villas (600 square metres) nestled amongst the beautiful royal palm trees. Every Pool Villa has been designed with full respect for nature, and blends traditional Indonesian touches with contemporary and elegant style. Pool Villas were not only designed and built with the utmost attention to detail, but are also environmentally friendly.

The amazing lobby and restaurant were re-built in full and opened in the summer of 2009, welcoming guests with an elegant atmosphere that mixes contemporary style and traditional touches. The restaurant specialises in local seafood – freshly caught lobster, prawns and fish bought directly from the fishing boats each morning. Guests can choose to dine inside the intimate restaurant, on the patio or in the romantic setting around the pool.

The resort’s highly qualified diving instructors have discovered several excellent dive sites in the crystalline waters around the islands. There are fringing reefs, atolls and many wrecks, and a fantastic variety of underwater species, some of them rare, such as the Crocodile fish and Leafy Scorpion fish. It is an experience beyond the ordinary.
