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.

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. 

Indulge yourself with the hotel spa, which boasts Jacuzzis, Mayan-style steam rooms and a range of decadent treatments. As evening draws in, a delectable feast at the stylish hotel restaurant is the perfect prelude to a romantic stroll along the moonlit beach.

Located along a mile long stretch of Mexico's best beach, Esencia Estate is a quiet, sea side refuge in the Riviera Maya just 30 minutes north of Tulum.

Most meals are taken at the signature Sal Y Fuego Restaurant, offering rustic cuisine served up in a casually refined setting that instantly warms its way into the hearts (and bellies) of diners from around the world. Esencia serves the finest seafood, meats and fresh salads, plus exotic ingredients found nowhere else in the world. The chef is happy to cater dishes to the unique tastes of each guest and can prepare meals to meet any special need or desire.

Sal Y Fuego is the perfect prelude for an evening on the beach, or a 20 minute drive to Playa del Carmen's nightlife.

Poolside Pavilion

Mornings have always been special at Esencia. The Duchess herself always enjoyed sipping her coffee and juice while watching the beachfront come to life as the seabirds set out for their day of fishing and the sun begins its lazy arc across the Caribbean. These days, guests enjoy their breakfast in the shaded poolside pavilion, where they can linger over their morning meal and prepare for a day of fun in the sun.


Catch some rays at the beach or spend the day relaxing at Esencia's full-service spa. Then enjoy a meal at one of the hotel's 2 restaurants.
