Hotel Esencia is a majestic 50-acre estate at the midpoint between Tulum and Playa del Carmen in Mexico. Originally built as the private hideaway home of an Italian duchess on the most beautiful beach of the Mayan Riviera, it has long enjoyed a storied past in this ancestral cradle of culture, cuisine, and comfort. A new chapter began in 2014 with the arrival of a new owner and a bold, worldly outlook on how to savor paradise. The Main House remains the hotel’s centerpiece, around which footpaths lead to only 38 suites and 3 villas where guests enjoy genuine privacy and top flight hospitality. Ideally situated far from huge resorts and the roar of pleasure boats, the immaculate bay of Xpu-Ha is a natural haven where each year sea turtles make their nests. Hotel Esencia invites the happy few who know how rare it is to find a place that is truly unique, to make it their home in the tropics.

Eleven new suites make their debut this season offering the ultimate “barefoot in the sand” experience imagined to satisfy the most discerning traveller.
