Hotel Esencia is a majestic 50-acre estate at the midpoint between Tulum and Playa del Carmen in Mexico. It has long enjoyed a storied past in this ancestral cradle of culture, cuisine, and comfort.

Originally built as the private hideaway home of an Italian duchess on the most beautiful beach of the Mayan Riviera, it later became a hotel, and, for some time, has been a sought after destination for honeymooners seduced by the serene comforts of this timeless mansion.

A new chapter began in 2014 with the arrival of a new owner and a bold, worldly outlook on how to savor paradise. The estate’s provenance as a place of leisure for nobility is the guiding inspiration for a modern reimagining.

The Main House remains the hotel’s centerpiece, around which footpaths lead to only 42 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.


Every room at Hotel Esencia by any other standard would be called a suite. The private terrace and sitting area of the room offer a peaceful view on the garden canopy or an impressive panorama of the Caribbean.


Dining at Hotel Esencia is at once a culinary voyage and a coming home. Meals are simple yet sophisticated, drawing as much from Mexico’s eclectic range of regional cuisines as from the well-loved comforts of Mediterranean cooking.

Ingredients are sourced locally from farmers and artisans in Quintana Roo, or further afield from the places in Mexico known for exemplary delicacies—moles from Oaxaca, fruits from Yucatán, and wines from Baja.


At the east end of the gardens is Hotel Esencia’s health club overlooking the estate’s cenote. Housed under traditional palapa thatched roofs, Esencia Spa and the fitness room integrate hallmarks of modern wellbeing with ancient customs of cultivating beauty, balance, and peace.


Whether intimate or grand, events at Hotel Esencia offer all the boutique services and conveniences of nearby Cancún, but are utterly removed from the noise of other seaside resorts.

Hotel Esencia can host events of up to 300 people – weddings, family reunions, birthday celebrations, corporate events, retreats and any other occasion that is meant to be unforgettable.

Rooms: 45
Price: from 820 EUR per night
