Celebrating 27 years of a world-class spa experience, the Kurotel – Medical Longevity Center and Spa – has become a worldwide leader in health, and has established a mark of excellence winning South America’s Leading Spa Resort at the 2009 World Travel Awards. Such honour and distinction is the result of Kurotel’s commitment to helping people achieve better health and a more fulfilling life through predictive and preventive medicine.

The concept of the Kurotel was created by Neusa and Luis Carlos Silveria, who as a young couple envisioned a place where clients would regain their well-being and happiness. Together they built the Kurotel Longevity Center in 1982. It has grown into a real family affair with their four daughters (Rochele, Evelise, Mariela and Barbara) assuming various roles in the growth and development of the Kur brand, which now includes a cosmetic line, pharmacy, and day spa.

Part pampering spa and part state-of-the-art medical centre, Kurotel’s philosophy is treating health and wellbeing based on five pillars: hydrotherapy, nutrition, fitness, phytotherapy and emotional balance.

The Kur Method – a philosophy for optimal well-being in body, mind and soul – was designed to improve the quality of life through a balanced life including nutrition, physical activity, stress management and emotional well-being and the enjoyment of one’s life. It combines the best practices for a healthy and happy existence.


Combining preventive wellness approach to lifestyle prescriptions, Kurotel features many innovative programmes such as weight loss, stress management, smoking cessation, optimal ageing, healthy longevity, executive health or Kinder Kur, which offers an exceptional experience for mothers and their new born babies.

On the cutting edge, the signature cellular revitalisation treatment, based in Homeopathy and Acupuncture principles enhances organic function and improves the quality of immune response as well as cardiovascular, respiratory, and digestive functions.

The staff are specialised in general clinical medicine, nutrition, geriatrics, cardiology, gastroenterology, dermatology, physical education, psychology, physiotherapy, biochemistry, sports medicine, pharmaceutics, acupuncture, cosmetology, nursing, as well as beauty therapists. With a staff to client ratio of more than three, the centre provides truly personalised service and is committed to treating the whole person by addressing all aspects of human behaviour.

Comfort and refinement permeate this award-winning medical spa, in its colonial style architecture, classical decor, delicate towels and linens, luxurious accessories, cuisine and service, creating the perfect place to hide away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The apartments and suites are sophisticated and supremely comfortable, true homes away from home.

The integrative concept of body, mind and soul with a fully-qualified team of experts will lull you into a blissful state. With amazing possibilities, Kurotel has helped to turn thousands of lives into a healthy lifestyle experience for a quarter of a century.
