There is a reason why the world’s leading luxury and travel press cannot stop raving about Hotel Esencia. Formerly the winter hideaway of the Italian Duchess of Ferrari, this 50-acre estate has changed but managed to retain its grandeur and refinement. Hotel Esencia is located in the bay of Xpu-Ha, between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, where sea turtles arrive yearly to nest. Far from crowded beaches and Cancún’s rowdy party scene, guests enjoy privacy and an airy, minimalist sense of luxury.
As of last season, Esencia also boasts a new collection of six suites that have captured the sophisticated traveler’s attention: the Beach Suites. Condé Nast Traveler called them the “room to book.” These sumptuous suites are only 20 meters (65 ft) from the glistening Caribbean, giving guests an authentic “‘barefoot in the sand’ experience together with the finest comforts of home.” Take a look at our gallery and fantasize about the lavish time you can have at Hotel Esencia.
Each one of Hotel Esencia’s Beach Suites features a private beachfront terrace, 600 thread count linens, an in-room double bathtub, a large HD television, and a sound system with iPhone integration — as well as favorite Hotel Esencia amenities, like complimentary Havaianas sandals.
Lest you may think there’s no room for food enthusiasts at the stylish Hotel Esencia, the boutique hotel recently debuted Mistura. This restaurant is led by chef Dimitris Katrivesis, who masterfully blends Peruvian and Japanese flavors to deliver a unique culinary experience.
Journey Mexico wishes to acknowledge the generosity of Hotel Esencia’s owner, Mr. Kevin Wendle, who donated room nights at the hotel for an auction designed to raise funds for relief efforts after the earthquakes that hit Mexico City and neighboring states in September 2017. In the name of the Journey Mexico family, ¡gracias!
