boutique-hotel-costa-rica

Luxe beachfront boutique hotel with one of the best oceanfront locales in Costa Rica and easy access to surf.

Opened in 2019, Nantipa is a welcome addition to the charming surf town of Santa Teresa. This beautiful boutique hotel serves up barefoot luxury with sunny Costa Rican hospitality. The property sits at a perfect location, tucked away between the main road and the beach – with 450 feet of beachfront and within easy walking distance to the heart of town, great restaurants, and the nearby peaks of Playa Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen.

The design of the hotel borrows clean lines from modern Scandinavian style, complimented by latin influences like soaring palapa thatched roofs and natural beach-inspired accents.

Rooms are spacious and impeccably designed with a fresh take on modern beach chic. Floor to ceiling windows fill the rooms with natural light and highlight the stunning views of the beach and surrounding grounds.

All accommodations are beautiful, but the standouts are the five Ninta Bungalows that sit right on the beach with incredible oceanfront views, private plunge pools, hammocks, and double indoor/outdoor showers.

When you’re not surfing and exploring, Nantipa has multiple spaces where you can embrace the art of relaxation. Lounge around the pool at the center of the property, enjoy a delicious meal at the beachfront restaurant Manzú, or settle into a beach chaise with a craft cocktail to soak in the sunset after a full day of awesomeness.

Location

Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

Santa Teresa is a small laidback surf town located on the Nicoya Peninsula on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Once a small fishing village, over the past 15 years Santa Teresa has seen a surge in growth with surfers and travelers seeking surf, sun, and the pura vida way of life. Many of those visitors found all of the above and decided to stay.

This rise in expats from all over the world has led to an international feel to this charming surf village, and along with it an influx of fantastic restaurants, villas, and hotels to enjoy.

While there has been significant development in the area, there are no high-rises to speak of, most of the roads are unpaved, and residents and visitors still gather on the beach to hang out and collectively watch the epic sunsets.

With long beaches lined with great surf breaks, consistent swell, and year-round warm water, Santa Teresa is a quintessential surfer’s paradise.

Getting There

Transportation services feature a wide range of prices, from shared scheduled transfers to private helicopter rides. The most popular ways to get to Nantipa are:

Transportation Options

San José Int’l Airport (SJO)

For guests arriving in San Jose (SJO), there are two main options: the fastest route would be connecting to the local 18-minute flight to Tambor, followed by a 30 minute drive to Santa Teresa, or the scenic route driving to Puntarenas, crossing the Gulf of Nicoya via ferry boat, followed by the 50 minute drive to town.

Paquera Pier

Daily ferry services connect Puntarenas to Paquera. Tickets must be purchased in advance to secure space for guests and car (www.quickpaycr.com). This is a picturesque and scenic way to enjoy the Gulf of Nicoya and the islands. The ride takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes and departs on schedule 4 times a day each way. We advise arriving to check in 30 minutes ahead of departure.

Liberia Int’l Airport (LIR)

For guests arriving in Liberia (LIR), private transfers or driving are the best options. The total driving time is about 3 hours, including a stretch of the road from Naranjo Beach to Paquera that is not paved, but currently under contract for improvements.

Tambor Airport

The Tambor landing strip is located within a 35 minute drive from Nantipa. Two commercial airlines offer scheduled flights daily – Sansa and Aerobell – with 12 seat Caravan planes, and both depart from San José International Airport. Inter-regional flights from Arenal are under negotiations and charter flights can land from anywhere in Costa Rica.
