About Us

Sited on the Xpu-Ha beach in Mexico's Riviera Maya, along a two-mile stretch of white powder sand and against a sea of crystal blue water, surfaces Esencia, the essence of simplicity, elegance and beauty.

Spacious accommodations, 27 suites, 2 two bedroom villas and 2 private villas managed by Hotel Esencia, feature mesmerizing sea and garden views along with large terraces, deep soaking plunge pools and private solariums. Guests can experience Esencia in an ocean view suite, garden suite or in a one of a kind private home. Once the home of a European duchess, the main house is the heart of Esencia. Food, wine tasting, and intimate gatherings with friends will come alive here.

Esencia’s signature restaurants are the place for sophisticated cravings. Our menu consists of amazing farm to table cuisine with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients and apt updates to coastal staples from Latin America and around the world; the menu is an ode to the south.

Like other resorts in the area, the Esencia organizes excursions like snorkeling, horseback riding, jungle walks, and windsurfing. One unique offering, though, is the organic spa, using principles of ancient medicine. Sign up for a massage and you’ll be taking in the fresh open air and the ocean while you relax on the table. Aroma is the first pampering organic spa specializing in fito-therapy, fito meaning plant in Greek. This is a natural remedy for healing that was once discovered in ancient medicine. Plant extracts and botanical essence are used to create harmony and invite peace and well-being. Aroma is set in a tranquil area allowing the outside views to come in and act as a catalyst to the organic ingredients. Relaxing massages, herbal saunas, and facials are performed in a tranquilizing, organic methodology. Our Pavilion of Wind offers yoga and meditation accompanied by an experienced instructor. We recommend making reservations for the spa prior to arrival.

Esencia is the perfect setting to celebrate your joyful beginnings. The resort is on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Riviera Maya, set in a cove the sea is as tranquil as the everlasting peace transmitted to each guest that gaze upon it. Lush gardens, spacious accommodations, champagne brunch, romantic dinners and private plunge pools are the amenities that wait each individual wanting to celebrate their special relationship. Anticipating your needs we have put together several honeymoon packages for you to choose from.

Best of the Best

Once the beachside villa of an Italian duchess, set on a secluded 50-acre estate of lush gardens on the pristine white Xpu-Ha beach, this delightful Mayan Riviera refuge has 2 villas and 27 suites, an organic spa and two authentic farm-to-table restaurants featuring the flavors of the Yucatán. Suites at Hotel Esencia feature high ceilings and generous windows with tropical garden or sea views. Several have plunge pools and a terrace or balcony, while the duplex villas provide an extra level of privacy. Master suites and the salon of the main house feature authentic midcentury collectibles from Le Corbusier, Perriand, Picasso and others.

Hotel Tip

The best snorkeling in the region is right outside. You’ll find coral reefs, multicolored fish and giant sea turtles, all only steps from the resort’s quiet beach.
