Nantipa is an island oasis that lives up to its name: the native Chorotegan word for “blue.” Here, you are one step away from the truest blue of the Pacific, unfolding in awe-inspiring glory. Built by three friends with the intent to bring an authentic and sustainable Costa Rican luxury boutique experience to a town of large, redundant developments, it's rare to find such a unique, truly beachfront property in Santa Teresa.
Nantipa redefines the concept of Costa Rican luxury with sustainable practices and lashings of local talent integrated into all phases of its design. Each of the property’s structures are reminiscent of indigenous huts, a nod to the heritage of this upscale gem. Fifteen secluded guest bungalows and suites are scattered across nearly six acres of raw nature and ocean landscapes. Kick back in your room’s patio hammock, take a dip in your own plunge pool, or wash away the sand in the outdoor shower. Every stay comes complete with the technological luxuries you’ve come to expect too, which can be easy to forget when you’re immersed in a lush guest room surrounded by flora, perfectly placed to preserve privacy. If you're feeling adventurous, the resort can coordinate horseback riding, surfing lessons, zip line tours, hikes throughout the surrounding jungle, and more. Nantipa is restorative travel at its best and for the ultimate in self-care, opt for their wellness experience where you’re promised to “transcend to a more radiant realm of being.”
Santa Teresa is a hidden treasure where azure waters are framed by vivid rainforests. The Nicoya Penninsula, where the hotel is tucked-away, has been inhabited by the native Chorotegan tribe since ancient times and is one of the World’s five Blue Zones, as recognized by UNESCO. Nearby, the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve is the country’s first protect park and boasts 1,270 hectares of forest teeming with 150+ bird species. If you’re craving some vibrancy, Nantipa is part of a buzzing surfer town that has heaps of restaurants, nightlife and boutique shops. Of course, that would mean leaving your hammock…
Travel with Impact
Nantipa has taken painstaking steps to balance luxury with environmental protection: waste water is processed in a state-of-the-art treatment plant used to irrigate the Nantipa gardens, solar water heaters equip each room, and energy sensors are installed throughout to reduce waste. Even the take-out meals are packaged in biodegradable containers without a single plastic straw in sight.
