The result is an intimate beachfront getaway that feels truly embedded in the landscape, where you can enjoy barefoot luxury in an authentically Costa Rican environment. Nestled amid the swaying palm trees, Nantipa’s selection of suites, villas and bungalows are peaceful refuges where waves breaking on the nearby shore provide a soothing round-the-clock soundtrack. Sleeping up to four, the resort’s Nanku suites are comfortable, contemporary hideaways with roomy, hammock-strung terraces and balconies. The romantic two-person Ninta bungalows add in extra touches like private plunge pools while the expansive beachfront villas are perfect for families and larger groups.
When not out relaxing on your private terrace or taking in another Pacific sunset, you’ll find an endless list of experiences to enjoy at Nantipa. Head out among the waves with surfing lessons and sport fishing trips, or stay on dry land for a nature walk in the Curu Wildlife Reserve, Sabanero-style horse riding excursions and high rope adventures in the jungle canopy of the Cabo Blanco National Park.
When it’s time for some refreshment, head to Manzú, the resort’s palm-thatched beachfront restaurant. Here you can enjoy signature cocktails from master mixologist Esteban Lobo alongside a menu of perfectly prepared dishes drawn from Costa Rica’s bountiful land and sea – try the seared tuna fresh from the crystal waters of the Pacific. Or for a more intimate experience, indulge in a private meal on the beach under a blanket of stars.
