Esencia

This 50-acre private estate is a genuine retreat for those looking to get away from it all.

The beach-front setting is located along a mile-long stretch of one of Mexico’s best beaches in the Riviera Maya, with white sand and turquoise sea. The hotel itself boasts two swimming pools, a spa, gourmet restaurant and can even arrange cooking classes. The property once served as the exclusive beach-side retreat for an Italian duchess and is still popular with noted celebrities today.

Rooms are light, airy and beautifully decorated whilst the resort keeps a true sense of character. Dining at Sal y Fuego restaurant is a must, the food is exceptional; traditional Mexican fare can be paired with a private tour of the wine cellars or a cooking class with the resort’s chef.  

Accommodation is a luxurious affair with Garden or Ocean view rooms, or for something really special stay in one of the Cottages; nestled in a private area within the estate’s tropical gardens, these two-story cottages feature a high-tech media room, large living room, outside terrace with dining area and a large swimming pool with sundeck and lounge chairs.
