The Hotel

Sited on the Xpu-Ha beach in Mexico's Riviera Maya, along a two-mile stretch of white powder sand and against a sea of crystal blue water, surfaces Esencia, the essence of simplicity, elegance and beauty.

Spacious accommodations, 27 suites, 2 two bedroom villas and 2 private villas managed by Hotel Esencia, feature mesmerizing sea and garden views along with large terraces, deep soaking plunge pools and private solariums. Guests can experience Esencia in an ocean view suite, garden suite or in a one of a kind private home. Once the home of a European duchess, the main house is the heart of Esencia. Food, wine tasting, and intimate gatherings with friends will come alive here.
