Travelers' Choice
Nantipa is located in the heart of Santa Teresa, a Costa Rican authentic beach town with its own unique culture and style. Many define Santa Teresa as the new home for Barefoot Luxury, combining World Class surfing conditions, great yoga studios and instructors, superb cuisine and great nature and parks, all in a relaxed atmosphere that depicts Costa Rica’s Pura Vida lifestyle. Nantipa is found 150 meters south of the main Plaza / School, in a property that spans from the main road to the beach, presenting 155 meters (approximately 450 feet) of beach line. The property is heavily forested and has direct access to two swimming spots – one with natural ocean pools that form in the low tide – and is within close walking distance to the best breaks and waves. Nantipa offers 15 guest bungalows scattered in a 2.3 hectare property with 155 meters of beachfront. Most rooms feature full or partial ocean views, along with garden and pool views. Manzu is the beachfront restaurant, featuring Costa Rican authentic cuisine and spectacular views of the beach, ocean and sunset.

This is one of the most exclusive resorts you can stay at in Costa Rica. Here’s why my girlfriend and I recommend staying here: 1) The staff go well above and beyond to make sure we are happy. We’ve stayed at many high end resorts, however, this place is unique. For example, we forgot to bring rain jackets so the staff arranged for us to borrow some while we went horse back riding. Another example is that my girlfriend loves popcorn so the staff went and bought kernels and had the kitchen pop them for her so she can feel at home! Lastly, the staff took care of arranging everything (dinners, excisions, taxis, etc.) so that we can relax and not worry about logistics. Special shout out to Felicitas! 2) The resort is very exclusive (only 15 villas), peaceful, and filled with nature. Everywhere you look you will see greenery, with so many different different types of animals, trees, and wildlife. 3) The room is spectacular, is facing the ocean, and is right on the beach. Id recommend this resort to anyone who’s looking for a little R&R. If you have any questions, reach out to the staff, they will accommodate you!

I stayed at Nantipa for five days this January. From the cold fresh coconut they handed us when we arrived at the front desk, to eating a five star meal with our feet in the sand on the beach, this was a rejuvenating vacation. Situated in one of the most beautiful beach towns of the world, this hotel is the ideal spot for a totally relaxing ocean-side experience.
