Esencia is not a typical hotel, in fact this 50-acre private estate sits on some of Mexico’s most stunning beachfront property and includes all the indulgent amenities of a five-star hotel –two swimming pools, day spa, gourmet restaurant and warm, personal service fit for royalty.
In fact, the property once served as the exclusive beach retreat for an Italian Duchess. Commissioned by a Mexican architect, the resort blends seamlessly into the surroundings with the perfect balance of simplicity and sophistication. Crisp, white walls and native hardwood floors line each of the 29 rooms along with private terraces that frame the lovely gardens or turquoise Caribbean waters. The organic spa is another highlight here and the first of its kind in the Riveria Maya. Treatments incorporate pure indigenous fruits, plants and herbs, many of which are grown in an herb garden located near the entrance. There are five treatment rooms, four Jacuzzis and two Mayan-style domed steam rooms.
