What if you could drop everything you’re doing. Right now. And jet off to a blissfully serene tropical hideaway. You wouldn’t even think twice, right? With it’s own private beach located on the crisp white sands of the Rivera Maya, Hotel Esencia is an oasis for pure unplugged relaxation. And if the private beach isn’t enough, the immaculately landscaped grounds, calming decor, and fresh local food are a few more of the high points that make Hotel Esencia completely lust-worthy. I’m already mentally packing my bag now, which doesn’t include much more than a handful of swimsuits, a few breezy dresses, and some easy slip on sandals.
From the hotel:
“Hotel Esencia is a majestic 50-acre estate at the midpoint between Tulum and Playa del Carmen in Mexico. It has long enjoyed a storied past in this ancestral cradle of culture, cuisine, and comfort. Originally built as the private hideaway home of an Italian duchess on the most beautiful beach of the Mayan Riviera, it later became a hotel, and, for some time, has been a sought after destination for honeymooners seduced by the serene comforts of this timeless mansion.
A new chapter began in 2014 with the arrival of a new owner and a bold, worldly outlook on how to savor paradise. The estate’s provenance as a place of leisure for nobility is the guiding inspiration for a modern reimagining. The Main House remains the hotel’s centerpiece, around which footpaths lead to only 29 suites and villas where guests enjoy genuine privacy and top flight hospitality. Ideally situated far from huge resorts and the roar of pleasure boats, the immaculate bay of Xpu-Ha is a natural haven where each year sea turtles make their nests. Hotel Esencia invites the happy few who know how rare it is to find a place that is truly unique, to make it their home in the tropics.”
^^Beautiful private beach—all that’s missing is you and that ice cold mezcal margarita. ^^Hotel grounds and pool—perfectly landscaped and just waiting to be Instagrammed. ^^Stunning rooms—the white walls and neutrals create a calming and serene feel. Looks like a dream, right?
