Nantipa

Luxury Boutique Hotel in Santa Teresa

Nantipa Hotel is a stunning property located on the beautiful beach of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. The resort is luxurious and intimate, offering 15 luxurious bungalows and suites across almost 6 acres of beachfront land!

Enjoy the pleasure of a true beachfront vacation in the heart of the Nicoya Península. Santa Teresa is a hidden treasure where deep blue waters are framed by vividly green tropical rainforests. The area offers a range of waves for all levels, making this a perfect surf trip destination!

The Resort

Located on the Nicoya Península, Santa Teresa, Nantipa Hotel is a stunning property located in a prime beachfront location! The resort only has 15 luxurious bungalows and suites, giving the rest an exclusive and intimate feel. The resort aims to blend world-class luxury with classic Costa Rican hospitality!

The resort itself is just a stone’s throw from the surf and with around 150m of beachfront access! The resort has an international standard restaurant onsite, a large pool, and many activities for non-surfers to enjoy!

Waves at Nantipa Hotel

The waves around Santa Teresa offer surf for all levels. Playa Santa Teresa offers up quality beach break waves, which with the right swell can produce barrels for advanced surfers. Nearby Playa Hermosa also has great beach breaks for all levels. The area also has a range of point breaks for more advanced surfers!

Usually, you can surf year-round in Costa Rica with the largest SW swells arriving in the wet season of May – October. Throughout the dry season on December – April, consistent smaller swells are to be expected. Generally, there are a lot of light wind days, meaning lots of glassy surf!

Why We Love Nantipa

The resort offers a really high standard of luxury accommodation with service and hospitality to match!

The exclusive beachfront location offers access to Santa Teresa’s amazing beach!

The range of waves in the local area means that there is always a wave for all levels of surfers! Perfect for mixed ability groups.

I run surf coaching trips to perfect, uncrowded waves and I relied on the AWAVE team to deliver for my clients a month long boat trip to the Maldives. We had great waves on an absolutley 5* boat called North Seven which I REALLY recommend you enquire about.

I was dubious at first as a few boats were changed, in for repair but James assured me correctly this was a usual thing and they would endevour to find us the very best replacement (which they did). North Seven was so new we were the third guests but the crew were super experienced and could not have given us a better service. Captain Usmaan, the Chef great food, Hasan and Azim our surf boat operators could not have worked any harder and always had a smile even after the 50th request to speed us to the line up or spend four hours cruising looking or waves.

AWAVE team were always on hand to answer any fears and smooth out any worries. The payment system using Revolut was super easy.

We did have a few hiccups with the local airlines which was resolved and partly our fault (as for a month trip we took alot of surfboards and in some cases were over weight).

Take the fear out of booking and especially group bookings by using the AWAVE team. Justin West Coaching recommended.

These guys are the BEST! Massively knowledgeable, fun and absolute shredders. I approached them asking for a UK winter getaway somewhere in the Indian Ocean and they suggested the perfect place, awesome setup with the beach a short stroll from my accommodation with 3 sick waves breaking over reefs to chose from. Real life doesn’t get much better than this. I also popped my barrel cherry in a big way on this trip so it was a truely memorable one. James also somehow wangled a boat charter to some super remote islands where we scored epic surf and landed some massive fish. James’ broken Indonesian language skills will get you places. Thanks again guys you rock.

James is a super knowledgeable surfer with a great ability to match any trip requirements to the right locations. He has arranged several trips for me and my friends in France, Morocco and more recently Indonesia. Awave have a great knowledge of all the surf spots and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is all set up. With limited time to do this myself their service was invaluable.

Giuliana has been amazing to work with!! She was always available and answered all my questions. Thank you for all your help! We can't wait for our trip!

Fantastic service from start to finish from James and his team. After having several ‘self organised’ trips to Asia end with only a handful of good surf days I decided this time to use Awave in hope of maximising my valuable holiday time. James custom built a trip for me and my friends tailored for our abilities and requirements. There were no days wasted waiting for transfers as he organised it all from the airport to the beach. We scored pretty much every day whilst also having a surf trip that had that ‘off the beaten track’ feel we wanted. To round it off there was also a secret boat trip in the end where we surfed an awesome spot just us...Unforgettable. Will be using again.

Fantastic service and support from Giulia during our trip. During a self organised trip to Maldives, we ended up in a sketchy situation: the hotel was far from the described plus the owner 'forgot' to mention that the whole island was in lockdown for a covid emergency. I quickly realized that I would need support and the best in class. That's when I decided to use Awave! Giulia answered reactively and custom built several solutions for me and my girlfriend, based on what feasible, our budget and surfing preferences!! No other words needed. Thanks Giulia, we'll be in touch again!

A wave travel were great! They helped me organize my trip to Sumatra. I would definitely book with them again!

My friends and I recently went on a trip to the Maldives. We booked a week on the Hudhuranfushi resort which was amazing! The staff was very welcoming, flawless facilities and tasty food. One day our surf guide Ryan caught a fish and made some sashimi on the spot! I think that was pretty thoughtful! Awave agency really made sure all our needs where met as we where a big group of friends. A very personal approach and clear communication. Epic surf, great service, memories of a lifetime! I highly recommend traveling with Awave!

I had just arrived in Bali when the whole of Indonesia went into lockdown again. Despite travel restrictions such as mandatory vaccination and PCR tests, flight cancellations and even the fast ferries to the Mentawis being cancelled, Giulia tried everything to get me there. It was a hell of a trip to get there but totally worth it.

I scored pristine and empty Mentawis. The resort was affordable yet very luxurious given the remoteness. And with their great surf guide and their boat, I scored amazing empty waves!
