Kura Kura Bali Turtle Island is a pioneering development based on the Balinese concept of Tri Hita Karana – Three Ways to Happiness – the harmony of Creation, Nature and Culture in all aspects of life.
It is a vision of an Island of Happiness offering a sustainable ecosystem for a thriving international creative community.
Kura Kura Bali Island lies just 15 minutes’ drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport, connected seamlessly to the main Bali island by a short bridge.
