Guest Testimonial

Our consultant (Annie Jensen) really was excellent designing a great itinerary minimising our time waiting around for transfers and both hotels, Four Seasons Bali and Oberoi Lombok exceeded our exceptions.

Kura Kura means "sea turtle" in Bahasa Indonesian, the island was always the place that the sea turtles came to lay their eggs but unfortunately this had stopped. Through the turtle Sanctuary project they have been able to successfully re introduce the sea turtles to the island and it is a project that guests can visit and learn about this incredible animal.

The Resort accommodation offers 15 cottages and 21 pool villas, each option has air conditioning and the cottages have unobstructed views of the ocean. The pool villas have been cleverly placed in amongst the Royal Palm trees and are very private and spacious. The ultimate in villa accommodation is the family pool villa perfect for family and friends travelling together with a large pool and living space over 600sq metres. Kura Kura has the perfect location for exploring the unspoilt waters and beaches of the Karimunjawa Archipelago.

Weather

Indonesia is located very close to the Equator which means you have 12 hours of daylight daily. It is a year round destination with the western monsoon bringing the wet season from October to April providing nice, warm temperatures and rain in the afternoon, perfect for a nap, especially with a twist of sea-breeze in the coastal areas. The eastern monsoon brings the drier weather from May to September, which is generally a more popular time to visit
