Esencia is not a typical hotel, though it certainly offers the personal service and pampering facilities you’d expect at refined, luxury resorts in Tulum. It is not a condo, though it has the privacy, luxury and personal touches that you’d want in your own residence.
"#1 Super Romantic Beach Resort...An anomaly among the mega resorts between Cancun and Tulum."
Esencia is a 50-acre private estate, with an awe-inspiring beachfront, two swimming pools, day spa, gourmet restaurant, and an indulgent atmosphere fitting of royalty. In fact, the property and many of the buildings once served as the exclusive beach-side retreat of an actual Italian duchess. Though friendly, warm and generous, the duchess demands the very best and Esencia still benefits from her superior taste, her impeccable style and her zest for life.
"Here, on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Riviera Maya we came to chill. And luckily for us, we found just the spot to do it: the Esencia Estate. Irresistibly charming...the minute we arrived we knew we would not want to leave. Never in my adult life have I felt as deeply taken care of as I did by Esencia's staff."
