2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

Our family of four had a fantastic time at Nantipa! We truly enjoyed our stay at Nantipa! The rooms and property are gorgeous, the staff super friendly and the food amazing. The hotel is right in the center of Santa Theresa, yet feels far away. A relaxed beach vibe reigns. Gardens and rooms are gorgeous and very spacious. We will be back!
