Hotel Esencia is a stunning 50-acre beach retreat situated halfway between Tulum and Playa del Carmen on the Riviera Maya of Mexico’s Yucatan Coast. Originally built as a holiday home for an Italian duchess, it offers laidback holiday living with 29 stylish suites and villas offering spectacular views of the treetop canopy or Caribbean Sea. The white sand beach is just a step away and the bay of Xpu-Ha is known as a turtle nesting zone. Guests can look forward to a rewarding holiday filled with trips to Mayan ruins, cocktails by the pool, or sunrise yoga on the beach.

Dining:
Dining at Hotel Esencia is a wonderful culinary affair with simple but delicious meals, inspired by Mexican and Mediterranean cooking. Ingredients are sourced from the hotel’s own kitchen garden or from local farmers.
  • The Pool Restaurant: Nestled between the pools and the beach, The Pool Restaurant offers seasonal ingredients and coastal staples.
  • The Garden Restaurant: Tucked away in the Palm Garden, the Garden Restaurant offers creative Mexican cuisine.
  • In addition to the above restaurants, there is a beach bar and a cold press juice bar. Complimentary afternoon tea and morning pasties and fruits are available to guests.

    Spa and Health Club
    The health club is housed within traditional papaya roofs and offers a fitness room, juice bar and spa. Ingredients for the spa are harvested from the Caribbean Sea and soil of the surrounding Mayan jungles. The climate-controlled fitness room has Technogym cardio machines, Pilates reformers, weights, and personal trainers. Don’t forget to try the Juice Bar which offers tasty drinks between workouts.
