About Cristina Sartori Medri

Cristina and Dante are italians and spent many years living in the states. During one of their travel they came upon Santa Teresa and fell in love with it. It's the perfect spot to get away from it all.

Cristina and Dante are green home designers and builders, and thought about bringing their expertise here to build an ecologically friendly house resort.

Cristina Sartori Medri purchased this villa in 2010

Why Cristina Sartori Medri chose Hermosa Cóbano Beach

We fell in love with Santa Teresa, and particularly with playa Hermosa the first time we came here, in 2001. We traveled extensively, and when we arrived in this paradise, we knew we had found a real gem.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The place we are currently staying at is absolutely the most awesome place I have ever stayed at, anywhere. Seriously, I can not think of one thing I would change about Batik Blue. [...]

Simply put, Batik is paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful and so luxurious. We stayed in Batik Blue and it was just perfect for the six of us. Isabella was so nice and helpful with tips for travel and setting up activities. We did surfing and horseback riding and the rest of the time just hung out, relaxed, and cooked delicious food with friends. We will for sure be back again! Thank you to everyone at Batik for making our stay so wonderful, relaxing, and most of all worry free.

Best vacation ... ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time at the Batik Blue Villa.

The villa itself is so well laid out - 3 apartment, where 2 rooms are on one side of the central common area, and 1 master on the other side of the common area. The common area is so airy and dreamy - several days we just hang out by the pool for half a day, the house is so comfortable.

The ocean is very close, maybe 200 yards. There are several surfboards on the property for rental, which means that there is no need rent surfboard from the nearby shops - a big plus. The beach itself that's closest to the house, Playa Hermosa, is absolutely perfect for beginners - it's sandy, very shallow, etc. If you are planning to do easy surfing, or want to learn how to surf, the beach couldn't be better.

The town of Santa Teresa is maybe a 10 min drive - you do have to have a car. The relative seclusion is very welcomed if you are looking for complete relaxation. At night the surrounding area is absolutely quiet and peaceful.

If you are looking for yoga, the Pranamar studio is a 15 min walk on the beach or 3 min by car. We loved the yoga classes by Nancy, who was absolutely wonderful. Nancy is also able to come to the villa and do a private class (there is a Shala on the property, next to the house).

Finally, there are two very special people on the property who we can't thank enough:

- Isabella - the concierge and property manager. Isabella was absolutely wonderful. She helped us arrange car rental, Isabella recommended nearby restaurants, arranged and suggested trips. She was just so absolutely helpful.

- Andrea - we decided to have someone cook for us every day, and Andrea came highly recommended. Andrea came up with new ideas for everyday - we typically had Andrea cook lunches and dinners. Not having to cook was such a luxury, but so worth it. Andrea bought the groceries, she took care of everything. If you are looking to have someone cook for you, I suggest you ask Isabella to introduce you to Andrea :-)

Overall, we would love to and hope to come back. This was the most amazing 2 weeks, ever.

Most elegant of props

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week in the "blue" house. It is a magically place, only minutes walk away from the ocean. Everything in the house is well appointed - kitchen, bedrooms, linens. The full-time manager, Isabella, drifts by early morning for a quick hello and to make sure all your activities or reservations for the day/week are arranged....she is a charm.

Pure bliss

  • 5 of 5

Batik’s owners and their staff have done an amazing job of creating a piece of luxury and great service in the middle of the jungle. Surfing at an epic beach just a few steps from the property by day, watching the most amazing sunsets and coming home to our luxury villa, made for a world-class vacation for our family. I could not recommend Batik more highly, and hope to return some day. Meantime, special thanks to Isabella and a heartfelt appreciation to Christina.

Muchas Gracias!

Unforgettable Experience

  • 5 of 5

Spent eight days at Batik with a party of six (three younger kids, mother, father and grandmother) at the end of March. Superb combination of luxury and escape.

The villa staff are wonderful; Cristina made the booking process very easy and gave us wonderful suggestions, Isabella tended to our every need, booking massages, providing groceries at the house for us and booking all our activities and great restaurants!

The villa is beautifully furnished and spacious.

The gardens are heaven, full of amazing trees, flowers and birds.

The pool is like swimming in a tropical garden and was a delightful beginning and end to each of our days.

The path to the beach is short and easy and we would see monkeys in the morning and at sunset, making it a favorite part of our vacation!

The beach…now I understand why it’s often mentioned as one of the most beautiful beaches of Central America, truly special.

A delightful stay that exceeded our every expectation!

Great vacation at Batik!

The villa is amazing: spacious, elegant, beautifully decorated and very well maintained and equipped with everything we needed.

The area is stunning and there is a lot to do.

The beach, just a few steps from the villa, is paradise.

The property is heaven.

Really helpful owner and concierge and great pleasant staff.

Top service!

One of those really great experiences you'll remember forever. Thanks to all involved!
