Caribbean coast: Riviera Maya and Tulum: Hotel Esencia

Visit Us

Hotel Esencia

Hotel Esencia is one of few luxury hideaway properties on the Riviera Maya to welcome families, though this does not detract from a serene atmosphere that will suit honeymooners and people seeking total relaxation.

The estate is owned by an Italian duchess but has none of the baroque fussiness you might expect― it is simplicity itself, a place to clear out the mind of clutter and the preoccupations of daily life in an environment dedicated to your every comfort.

The sleek décor reflects the dazzling white of the long, broad beach outside, which also inspires the ornamentation: bits of driftwood, coral, shells and other items have been combed from the shore. In the tropical gardens there are large garden suites. Service is impeccable yet understated.

What our experts say

The philosophy here is that simple is best: the atmosphere is of luxury pared down to its basic elements. There are two pools – one just for adults, the other welcoming children.
