Discover a beachfront boutique hotel surrounded by lush vegetation in the Nicoya peninsula.  Located in one of the world’s five UNESCO Blue Zones, known for the longevity and healthy living of its population, the Nantipa Hotel offers a peaceful retreat on Costa Rica’s shores.  

With its name meaning ‘blue’ in Chorotegan - a local language - Nantipa blends barefoot luxury with sustainable design. The contemporary interiors with furnishings from Nicaragua and azure accents are paired with floor-to-ceiling windows. The 19 bungalows, suites and villas are dotted around the carefully landscaped flora in a property with 155 meters of coastline. Choose between beach and poolside views with a private plunge pool in the Ninta Beachfront and Ninta Pool View bungalows.  

Outside, the large freshwater pool is surrounded by tropical foliage of cacti and succulents. The shallow end allows parents to relax in the deck area while children splash around.  

Focused on wellness, the hotel offers a range of signature treatments including your own professional holistic practitioner and healing sound therapy on the beach.  

In the beachfront Manzú restaurant, enjoy traditional recipes rich in history, made with local ingredients under thatched huts, reminding the houses of the Chorotegans. The gourmet meals prepared in the restaurant can be savoured in private under the stars, in the pool or in the comfort of your patio.  

Explore the surrounding area of Santa Teresa with horse-riding Sabanero style and hiking in Cabo Blanco National Park. Surf in the waves of the Pacific or swim under the canopy of the MonteZuma Waterfalls.
