Beach boutique hideaway.

Originally the private mansion of an Italian duchess, Hotel Esencia sits on a 50-acre estate between Tulum and Playa del Carmen. Located on the natural haven of Xpu-Ha beach, the hotel offers a quiet retreat in the tropics.

Insider Tip

Take time during your stay to also reconnect with yourself, spending time pursuing the curated collections of art and books in the common areas.

Where You’re Staying

Bright accommodations all include private terraces, walk-in closets, and sitting areas, along with views of the garden canopy or the Caribbean Sea. Select suites offer full-size pools, while others feature a rooftop terrace, plunge pool, and champagne bar.

Where to Dine

Mistura offers 180-degree views and a selection of seafood dishes and grilled specialties that make use of Yucatan’s ingredients. Located between the pools and the beach, Café Esencia offers salads, sandwiches, tacos, and ceviches. Enjoy a cocktail and the sea breeze at Beach Bar.

Where to Relax

The hotel includes outdoor heated pools. Housed under a traditional palapa roof, The Spa takes advantage of the hotel’s location and uses ingredients harvested from the Caribbean and the surrounding jungle soil. The Lime Ritual is a purifying massage that alternates hand strokes with lime.

Worth Experiencing

See amazing flora and fauna at Sian Ka’an, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Drive to the towns of Valladolid and Merida. Snorkel and explore the second largest coral reef in the world.
