Hotel Esencia

Riviera Maya


Set on a beautiful estate between Tulum and Playa del Carmen, Hotel Esencia is the perfect place to escape to. This beautiful resort is located in Xpu-Ha, which is just south of Playa del Carmen. The building is decorated throughout with sleek and modern furnishings, but with beautiful Mexican tones. The rooms are spacious and elegant, and finished to a very high standard. Your stay at Hotel Esencia will be very intimate, as the beach can only be accessed through one other hotel on the coast, and by sea. The hotel is only 20 minutes away from Mayan Pyramid ruins, so those who are seeking a little culture will be satisfied. This gorgeous hotel definitely has the wow factor.
