Dahlia was a knowledgable, cheerful and helpful guide for our stay in ST. All her recommendation where great - surfing, fishing, nature trips and food.

Batik Villas are superbly maintained and beautiful. Staff pleasant. Extremely clean.

Short walk to beach features monkey's and other wildlife.

Great beach for surf, boarding or swimming.

This place left me speechless. I don't want to give away this gem in hopes that it is available when I go again. But It deserves the High praise it earned.
My wife and I spent 7 romantic days alone here until the kids flew in. The family then stayed another 7 days. Immaculate homes and grounds were looked after by friendly and professional craftsmen and women.
This place is world class. I couldn't imagine a better location or nicer facilities.
Thank you all for making our stay a memory of a lifetime.
We stayed at Casa Mali but all four of these homes were five star. The website pictures don't due these properties justice.
Congratulations Batik!

Room Tip: Five of us stayed comfortably at Casa Mali. Being a family the single bathroom was not an issue. Two...

We stayed at Villa Batik for 10 days with our 14 and 17 years old teens. We were all enchanted by the open air living space, the beautiful private pool the overall ambiance so conducive to achieving our goal: relaxation. The surf classes were great, the access to a fabulous local chef made our dinners informal yet sophisticated. Santa Theresa itself is quite cool...very cool...

My husband and I had the most amazing stay at Casa Mali! The open-air villa was so serene and gorgeous. The hospitality at Batik was fantastic - from the groundskeeper and housekeeping staff to Dahlia, their super cool concierge. The kitchen was fully-equipped - though the only one who took complete advantage of that was the private chef who cooked an incredible meal on our final night - throughout the week we enjoyed amazing meals at local restaurants (on Dahlia's recommendations). The bathroom is indoor/outdoor but completely private and a cool experience. The bedrooms are the only completely enclosed rooms but have plenty of windows and option for tons of sunlight. The living area has fun furniture options and a great private pool for cooling off or just relaxing. We coordinated all of the activities of our stay with Dahlia, who was extremely helpful and easy to reach. We rented a quad for the week - which was much better (and more fun) to drive through the town than our rented SUV (but beware of dust). Batik is a very well-maintained hidden gem and the town is a charming slice of paradise. We enjoyed awesome meals and lots of local activities (surf lessons, horse riding on the beach, zip lining and nature walk tour). The beach is a very short walk from Batik - but a nice one through a tree-lined path. We can't recommend Batik/Casa Mali highly enough!! We have the best memories of our trip and hope to get back to Batik again in the near future!

Casa Maconda was the perfect retreat to end our stay in Costa Rica. The villa was beautiful and the pool was a special treat to cool off in at the end of your day. Each villa has its own pool which is so nice, the villa is very well equiped and has the feel of the Costa Rican lifestyle. Dahia was amazing stopping in every day to make sure our stay was perfect! She was very helpful with her recommendations to the local restaurants and activities. We also felt very safe at Batik, the security guard would wait for us at night by the beach gate to let us in and was up very early at 4am the day we had to leave to catch the ferry. The only thing that was really missing for me was to be ocean front. I love the ocean and beach, you do have to walk to the beach which is okay but not the same as being ocean front. The villas are quite close together and open so that too can be a problem if you would like more privacy. Overall I really enjoyed Batik. Class A people and very nice villas.

Stunning location. Batik is set just a short walk through the jungle from the beach with a peaceful atmosphere. A real tropical paradise and the perfect place to wind down after surfing the local beach or point break (2min walk through the jungle). I couldn't recommend it more.

We returned from our Costa Rican vacation a couple of weeks ago, and we rented Batik Blue and Casa Mali for a group of seven of us, all adults, and from two different families. The arrangement was perfect for our group, because it gave each family their own space, and privacy, while being steps away from each other should we wish to dine/swim/hang out together. My husband and I had stayed at Batik Blue two years ago, and liked it so much that we came back, and brought more people with us! The property has a very Zen, minimalist feel...bamboo partition walls, open air living, except for the bedrooms, which are fully air conditioned. Even the bathrooms are open to the stars at night, while still maintaining complete privacy. The kitchens are well stocked, c/w an oven a the Batik, which we actually even made use of this time. Some of us enjoyed the pool in the hot afternoons, and spent a lot of time just hanging out and keeping cool. There is a beautiful yoga (is it called an asana?) on the property, complete with beautiful Balinese buddhas. Actually Balinese furnishings are a theme with the properties. Very peaceful feeling.
It is only a short walk to the very expansive, clean beach, through a short jungle path.
Cristina and Dante are lovely people and very conscientious owners, and Dahlia, the concierge, is a wealth of information and extremely helpful. She would stop by in the mornings to see what we wanted to do for the day. She would then line up surf boards, massages, horseback riding, restaurant reservations, yoga classes, various tours, or whatever your fancy! She is also very knowledgeable about directions to airports, restaurants, etc. and the time it takes to get places. By the time you leave, you feel you've found a new friend. With so much to see in the world, I am not usually one to want to go to the same place more than once, but even though we've already been there twice, I don't think we're done with it!
