Vacation Like Royalty at Hotel Esencia

Updated: Feb 18



Hotel Esencia, the former hideaway of an Italian Duchess absolutely perfect and chic in every way. This grand 50-acre estate is tucked into the jungle on the prettiest stretch of beach in all the Rivera Maya and is just a 30 minutes drive from Tulum. Far from crowded beaches and Cancún’s rowdy party scene, guests enjoy privacy and an airy, minimalist sense of luxury. I almost hesitate to call this discreet, 43 suite and villa property a hotel. The spacious rooms and suites are scattered small white cottages throughout the jungle and beachfront, each furnished in the purest white with indigenous minimalist accents simply with whitewashed walls and floors accented by mahogany windows and floor-to-ceiling doors that slide open to the terrace. These laissez-faire suites are only 20 meters (65 ft) from the glistening Caribbean, giving guests an authentic, “barefoot in the sand, experience together with the finest comforts of home.” Expansive bathrooms stretch into the outdoors as well, featuring private plunge pools and, outdoor showers. There are two Luxury Villas on the 50-acre estate, the perfect place for a destination wedding. Hotel Esencia feels more like a friend’s house rather than a hotel. The refined property’s definition is in detail and they have not missed one. Instead of slippers, guests receive perfectly sized Havaiana flip-flops and a straw beach tote to use and take home. An in-room iPod is loaded with three playlists, one for mañana, trade, and Noche by Michel Gaubert, the music designer for Chanel & Dior. Even the Beach Service is special, the property is intimate and the staff will greet you at breakfast and ask where you want your lounge area set up. Monogrammed beach towels, beach bags are the perfect additions. A secret cenote just a short walk down the beach and only Hotel Esencia guests have access to it. Resident Peacocks live on the property and often put on an extravagant show for the guests. Hotel Esencia is in a class of its own this property with a chic minimalistic approach to modern luxury is sure to be one of your vacation staples.
