About Hotel Nantipa

Step into a Costa Rican paradise at Hotel Nantipa, a boutique retreat that redefines barefoot luxury. Every element of the hotel is inspired by the ocean and sky—right down to its name, which means "blue" in the native Nicoya tribal language. From dawn to dusk you’ll have the sand between your toes and the sound of crashing waves in your ears. Whether you’re a novice or seasoned surfer, the conditions here are point break perfect. Of course, you could just swing gently in a hammock in your bungalow or beside the pool. But with the wildlife-rich jungle behind you and the ocean in front, you’ll be tempted to leave the grounds! And when you do, you can beach hop your way along the Nicoya Peninsula by foot, surfboard or horseback. Swap sandals for hiking boots to trek a national park or take a boat and escape to the talcum powder sands of Tortuga Island. The concierges at Nantipa will happily recommend and arrange all sorts of unforgettable adventures.

What We Love

Nature is an integral part of the Nantipa spa and wellness experience so be sure to visit Numu Wellness Center. Natural energy is a vital component of their philosophy with extraordinary therapies offered in an outdoor setting including open-air treatment rooms surrounded by lush palms, on the beach, or poolside in the privacy of your bungalow or villa terrace. The professional therapists use local ingredients to enhance your experience and maximize your relaxation. Numu’s menu includes a wide range of options from body massages to wraps and scrubs.

Suites and bungalows are aptly named after Chorotegan (indigenous Costa Rica tribe) words and are the inspiration behind the sleek units. Most rooms feature full or partial ocean views, along with garden and pool views. The accommodations are designed to make your beachfront experience as vivid as possible with furnishings from Masaya in Nicaragua and blue accents as a nod to the hotel's name.
