Silversea Luxury Cruises À KURA KURA (Karimunjawa)

Self-styled as “The essence of paradise” and “the best place between heaven and Earth”, when it comes to tropical islands, Kura Kura is as good as it gets. And when it comes to isolated, there simply isn’t anything like it. The nearest local airport is a 40-minute speedboat ride away, and even that is a 40-mintute flight from Semarang, Central Java. So suffice to say that for those in search of luxury in undiscovered and far flung places, Kura Kura ticks all the best boxes. View more

The resort is located between Java and Borneo. At 22-hectacres the island the island is ringed by white sandy beached yet has a verdant centre, and is of a rare beauty. It is also home to one of the largest lagoons in the area, so if you are a keen diver, get ready to don your mask and snorkel, as Kura Kura is fringed by a reed and offers a spectacular underwater display. The entire island is given over to a luxury eco-resort that has been conceived with sustainability in mind. Facilities were built using local materials, the resort operates a zero waste policy (and uses no plastic) and permanent moorings are set up all around the archipelago, to have safe places for boats that need to anchor during excursion or dives. This also provides a secure point for the fishermen who seek shelter for the night, enabling them to stay safe while not having to drop an anchor, (which causes damage to the reef). Note that Wi-Fi is not available – a conscious choice - that will delight some and surely leave others gnashing their teeth! Enjoy the rare chance to disconnect.
