We spent 6 day glorious days there, and wanted to stay longer! These apartment style villas are nestled amongst a beautiful exotic garden. All units are at ground level, are clean & comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen, and your own open front porch with table and chairs, for socializing with the other guests and the owners, which we spent many times doing. Everything is new and contemporary! The pool is refreshing and relaxing after a day at the beach, or to stay poolside and tan. While we were there Hotel Nautilus was just completing the finishing touches on their own yoga studio, complete with juice bar.
The owners (Arik, Adi, Edi) are down to earth and genuine, people you’d aspire to be like, and made our trip as wonderful as it was! They are always available to make any recommendation/arrangement you want – fishing, ATV rentals, surfing, yoga, tours, restaurant reservations, etc. The day we went fishing, they suggested we bring the fresh fish back to the Nautilus & we all helped to prepare sushi & a barbeque, on the premises that evening. We invited everyone staying there to join us for dinner. You don’t get that at a resort.
Santa Teresa beach is literally a 2 min walk from the hotel, yet off the main road for peace and tranquility. The beach is white sand, vast and untouched... no huge hotel/resort developments (the few that are there are set very far back, and are private and inconspicuous). The sunset is fabulous...hundreds of people gather every night to watch it, while the surfers still surf.
There are many good restaurants within walking distance, or a short cab ride. Grocery stores are also a very short walk if you want to cook you own meals. Restaurant and grocery prices are very reasonable.
All around our experience there was extraordinary, as one's travel destination is always a place that shows you a new way of looking at things, of which the Hotel Nautilus owners did for us! We were sad to leave and hope to get back ASAP.
