On Mexico's Riviera Maya, be a welcomed and privileged houseguest at Hotel Esencia, the former exclusive retreat of an Italian duchess.

A hidden gem for those who wants to experience a more authentic piece of Mexico. Well worth the extra 45 minute drive.
Get together with family and friends and indulge yourself at this beachside estate where sparkling blue waters softly kiss the powdery white sands of Esencia's beachfront. There are no hotel rooms here, only guest quarters with breathtaking views of the sea. Any visit to Esencia in Mexico revolves around the main house, the heart and soul of this tropical sanctuary. Here, guests are invited to gather and while their time away, perhaps with a Margarita or four.

Post poolside sun worshipping, guests are welcome to visit the tranquil Aroma Spa. The first organic spa to employ fito therapy, ancient holistic treatments using botanicals and plant extracts.

Esencia's Sal Y Fuego restaurant is a gourmet's dream: exotic ingredients and indigenous cooking guaranteed to take your taste buds for a spin. For those wishing for a more intimate dining experience, a private chef and butler are available for special occasions. Like, if you simply can't be bothered to climb out of bed.
