Batik was a gem. An incredible stay, with a jungle feel just walking distance from one of the most beautiful and wild beaches on earth, Hermosa. Batik has the highest quality in terms of design, service, comfort, cleanliness. We stayed in Casita Macondo and loved the open structure and outdoor table, hammok and shower. We also had good wifi for our work needs. Augustine is the most welcoming person and is amazing at supporting any need (from best restaurant recommendations to connecting with local fishermen), always with a contagious smile. We took surf lessons from a great local instructor David Steller from lowtidecr.com, he was really good at providing tailored coaching and sharing his love for the ocean. Would highly recommend the full experience!
Batik is one of the most serene, beautiful places to stay on Playa Hermosa near busy Santa Teresa! Every detail of the property is cared for and maintained. The casita was well stocked, very comfortable with good screens on the windows and doors. The property is very quiet with a relaxing space to lie in the hammock in the shade. We attended a wonderful yoga class taught by Nancy on the beautiful shaded yoga deck. The staff was exceptional. We love to cook and were able to use the wood burning grill in the evening. The beach is a 5 minute walk. You do need a car to get into the main part of town.
A spontaneous decision to travel to Costa Rica, looking for a balance between serenity and adventure, Batik Costa Rica delivered a million times over! On a family trip, we enjoyed the beach, surf, and sun - while visiting the local town and others surrounding the area, which had much to offer in adventure and food! The Batik grounds are spectacular - a zen oasis to relax and enjoy life!
I stayed in Casita Kala with my girlfriend while other friends rented other villas in Batık. We had great time, the service was very accurate everymorning the cleaning was accurate, towel changed daily our dirty laundry was given back cleaned and folded on the same day (drier than the things we kept on the cupboard!!) The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was furbished with all we needed. We cannot find a flaw in anything other than we didn't have an espresso machine but this is just because we had to go all the way to Santa Teresa on a terrible road full of holes to drink it. Enrico
Overall a 10/10 review of this beautiful place to stay. You are very secluded with a private beach as well as a manager that cares. Your provided with everything you need here and I couldn’t ask for a better person than Antonio, the villa manager, to help and take care of anything you need. Overall if your looking for a beautiful location with a top of the line staff, this is the place for you. I would highly recommend staying here because of the staff and the willingness to help out the guests with anything they need, not to mention the beautiful views and how easy it is to get anywhere.
Absolutely beautiful, safe, and near an amazing beach. Go with other people (we were two couples) and pay a little extra. It's worth every penny! The high-quality villas with pools are the best. Plan on doing some shopping and make meals in your villa. It's a great way to relax and enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica (but, beware the roads down south are rough).
Batik is a dream come true! It is perfectly maintained and clean, its staff always helpful and cheerful. We feel like home, it's amazing. Both owner and concierge are very kind to us, just like old friends from the first sight! The beach is so close - just a few steps away - that you can smell the salty air and listen to the ocean waves. And my husband can surf everyday! We love this place! Our Villa is so cozy, well furnished and with a lot of privacy. Large sunny deck and pool, fully equipped kitchen and many other leisure facilities :) The big bed is very comfortable and with several pillows, every night we have our best sleep, rocked by the sounds of Nature. We highly recommend this property. We hope to come back next year, meanwhile, we enjoy this marvellous experience. Viviana and Emanuele :=)…
This place is a treat! We loved every minute of our stay at Batik. The staff was super helpful and the casa/casitas are just beautiful and equipped with all you need. I was there with my husband and 2 young boys and we all felt so welcome. Great family time.
Wow our stay was just amazing. the owner christine was so lovely from the beginning we were writing with her till the end. she really wanted to organise the perfect stay for us. our villa was just like a luxury gardenhouse. the bed was so comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking by ourself. and can i have this outdoor bathroom at home please. a nice outdoorshower next to a lots of green plants. we really loved this place with this nice villas and the nice garden. the villas are just 2min away from the famous and beautiful beach playa hermose. so perfect for us who surfed everyday. also what we really enjoyed were the housekeeping. they cleaned every day our room and sometimes they also did our dishes. and its so quiet in this area (you don't even hear the ocean, because of this green scenery of plants). in the morning you hear all the birds arround. what a nice way to get up. and i don't wanna say anything to the interior design. if you love bali you will definetly love also this villas. everything is just planned in detail. so we are definetly come back to this luxury relaxing place if we are arround. could live there.…
So much I could say here... just got back from a resort review trip and Batik was absolutely my highlight. My villa had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, a relaxing pool and luxuriously designed & decorated open concept living space. From the moment the gate to the property opened up, the experience was amazing. I was instantly greeted with a smile by Isabella the concierge (who provided me so much info prior to arrival via e-mail) who was extremely helpful, friendly and available to arrange anything I needed to make my stay comfortable and memorable. I really wish I could have stayed longer in this luxurious paradise. The property itself is very private and relaxing and steps from one of the best surf beaches in the world, which I of course sampled! Isabella dropped by daily to check in and make sure I had everything I needed and to offer any suggestions I may want in terms of activities or places to eat. She had also arranged an ATV for daily transportation to the town, which came in very handy for trips to lunch, dinner, sight seeing and exploring this beautiful region of Costa Rica. My profession is fitness and active travel, so my purpose for coming to Batik was to truly experience beautiful Santa Teresa and the top resorts in the region. I left feeling so relaxed and accomplished at the same time. I would highly recommend this resort for couples or families who want a relaxing yet active vacation with a luxurious place to call home. You need nothing but your desire to enjoy paradise as the Batik villas are fully equipped and Isabella can arrange anything from transportation, to massage & surf lessons, to a private chef or nanny. Love it, love it, love it... and will absolutely return here. Thank you Batik!…
