Riviera Maya, Mexico / Hotel Esencia

Once the residence of an Italian duchess, the boutique-chic Hotel Esencia, sitting on a 50-acre estate between Tulum and Playa del Carmen, still gives the impression of visiting the home of a stylish family friend.

Simplicity blends with relaxed elegance, the soft white décor interrupted by vivid splashes of colour. The Casa Principal houses nine rooms and suites; the rest, some with private plunge pools, are dotted throughout the well-manicured gardens, each complete with black-out blinds and courtesy Havaianas flip-flops for lazy days spent around the exquisite pool or in the organic spa.

The white sand beach and a romantic restaurant specialises in ethnic Meso- American cuisine using produce from the estate’s own garden. Renowned local attractions, including spell-binding Tulum, the Mayan Pyramids at Chichen Itza and deep underground cenotes, are all within easy reach.

Take your pick from 11 new suites

In October 2017, Hotel Esencia launched 11 brand new suites, made up of six Beach Suites and five Jungle Suites. Ideal for serenity seekers, the Beach Suites have direct access to Xpu-Ha, which is a protected, tranquil beach where sea turtles nest every year. For guests who prefer a more verdant view, the Jungle suites overlook the lush gardens. 


Mayan relaxation methods

Esencia is a tropical haven dedicated to relaxation. Indulge in a traditional Mayan aromatherapy treatment in the organic spa, stroll through tropical fruit and herb gardens or take a dip in the inviting pools.

A new culinary gem

Serving up spectacular ocean views as well as Greek and Spanish inspired cuisine from Chef Dimitris Katrivesis, Hotel Esencia's new restaurant opens in October 2017. Open to both the public and hotel guests, dine underneath a traditional thatched roof while taking in the postcard perfect sunset.

When to visit Mexico

Riviera Maya is enjoyable year-round, but October to May is generally the most pleasant time to visit. Humidity is at its highest from July to September, with occasional showers more likely to occur on the Gulf Coast. November to May are the most popular months to visit Baja Peninsula, characterised by warm, generally dry days, whilst July to October tends to be hotter and more humid with the possibility of tropical storms. Mexico City is best visited between March to May; winter brings cool temperatures, whilst June to October can be more humid with a daily short burst of showers.
