Hotel Esencia in Xpu-Ha, Riviera Maya, Mexico

A new playground on Mexico's Riviera Maya, Hotel Esencia boasts a prime beachside setting ideal for seekers of sun and solitude. This lush tropical refuge an hour south of Cancun offers a complement of luxurious suites, each possessing an elegant simplicity, a private terrace and fabulous sea views. Gourmands will delight with Sal y Fuego, featured as one of the Best New Restaurants in the Caribbean in Food & Wine.

With unwinding at the top of your agenda, enjoy a renewing treatment at Aroma organic spa as a prelude to a day filled with horseback riding, fishing, snorkeling, windsurfing, scuba diving and more. Play a round on a championship golf course or slip away for a few hours of leisurely bird watching. While Cancun is known for its recreation, it is also home to spectacular Mayan ruins, including the ancient walled city of Tulum. Located 20 minutes south of Playa del Carmen's famous shopping and nightlife, along a two-mile empty stretch of Mexico's best beach, Hotel Esencia is a quiet, seaside refuge in the Mayan Riviera.

If you are in need of that perfect place, the place where troubles melt away and a feeling of calm overwhelms you ......this is the place. Beyond beautiful. Chic and elegant with no fuss. Nothing is too much trouble for a delightful Staff and a very personal attention to detail from the owner. Luxury, healthy food, a stunning white sand beach and shaded pools. Perfect.

This was our second year in a row of staying at Esencia and it was another perfect stay. We arrived on Thursday to perfect weather and a lovely bottle of chilled Chardonnay in our room. Then, dinner and cocktails outside by the pool with great friends. The next five days were spent working out in Esencia's awesome gym, having breakfast / lunch / dinner at the pool, socializing with our friends and meeting other hotel guests from all over the world. Our rooms have always been a large, gorgeous, stylish and comfortable. Our room this time, had its own private plunge pool, which we highly recommend. It is so refreshing at the end of the day. The food is fresh, healthy and delicious. The staff is super friendly and attentive. Big cheers go out to Andrea, Paulina, Alan, Jonas and Damien. We will go back for a third year in a row. It is such a great vacation value. You get a lot for your money. Some travel tips: For easy travel, fly nonstop and have the hotel arrange a car for you to and from the airport.

Hotel Esencia feels far from a hotel but instead your own tropical paradise. I traveled with two friends and we stayed in the Garden Suite, we had our own private terrace and pool, it felt more like a mini villa with impeccable design. I highly recommend yoga in the mornings, amazing views and amazing instructor. The perfect place to truly relax and disconnect!

This is our second trip here of many more to come. We absolutely love Esencia. Every detail has been thought of and attended to. The food is phenomenal, healthy but still very delicious. The drinks are superb. The staff is friendly, attentive, and always welcoming. They know who you are and as a result you never need to sign anything. The gym is very well equipped for a smaller hotel - it has everything you'd need for a great workout. Best of all, the design of the hotel is perfect. Beach resort chic at its best, and none of the typical resort tackiness. Great gardens, and even a collection of peacocks. It's the perfect place for a weekend getaway with friends or family. Truly a great setting! You must visit.

Our 3rd time back and it's better every time. This small luxury hideaway tucked along a magnificent beach has everything you need - no need to leave! Rooms are spectacular, food is delicious and the service leaves nothing to desire. The property is styled with an amazing taste. Feels like your living in a chic private home and the owner, clearly has a passion for this place and you feel his beautiful design sense everywhere. On top of all of that, they're also super kid friendly (even have a kids pool area with shallow shelf) which our toddler loves everytime. Will certainly come back often!
