Costa Rica is a land of natural abundance. The country may be the size of West Virginia, but it is home to six percent of the world’s biodiversity. Its lush tropical jungles, dreamy beaches along its Caribbean and Pacific Coasts, active volcanoes, and national parks are just some of the reasons why the country is the ultimate year-round vacation destination. And while there is no shortage of unique accommodations in Costa Rica, if privacy and luxury are at the top of your list, consider staying at the brand-new beachfront villas of Hotel Nantipa – A Tico Beach Experience.

Here’s a look inside this stunning hotel situated in one of the blue zones
The boutique property is nestled at the heart of Santa Teresa, a popular destination on the Nicoya Peninsula, famous for its surf breaks, wild beaches, and vibrant wellness scene. The three-bedroom beachfront residences are backed by an abundance of greenery and swaying palms providing maximum privacy to their guests.
The two-storey, 2,000-square-foot houses in this hotel located in a blue zone feature full gourmet kitchens and spacious living and dining rooms that boast floor-to-ceiling windows opening to private outdoor decks — perfect to take in those stunning ocean views and ‘pura vida’ lifestyle. The décor is in sync with the natural surroundings and features plenty of reclaimed wood accents and locally crafted furniture. Private infinity pools and sundecks complement the villas’ high-end amenities. Guests have at their disposal an exclusive 24-hour concierge service to take care of their every need — from a private chef or a fitness instructor to a mixologist.
“We are thrilled to welcome travellers to their nurturing home away from home in our new beachfront villas,” Harry Hartman, owner, and general manager at Hotel Nantipa – A Tico Beach Experience, said in a statement released to Travel + Leisure. “We are dedicated to ensuring visitors fully enjoy the Tico Beach Experience, blending barefoot luxury and the healing properties of the natural environment with unparalleled comfort and service in the paradise known as Santa Teresa.”
The 5.7-acre property, part of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, opened its doors in 2019 and has 19 more luxury bungalows and suites. A new wellness centre with open-air treatment rooms and a beachfront restaurant serving locally sourced food ensure an authentic Costa Rican experience.
