History & Story
Hotel Esencia is a majestic 50-acre estate located just a 50 minute drive south of Cancun and 30 minutes north of Tulum on the beautiful Xpu-Ha beach. Nestled between primitive jungle and the most beautiful beach on the Mayan Riviera, this secluded getaway was originally built as the private hideaway home of an Italian duchess and it is the estate’s provenance as a place of leisure for nobility that is the guiding inspiration for the property today.
The Main House is the hotel’s centrepiece, around which footpaths lead to the property’s rooms and suites, where guests enjoy genuine privacy and top flight hospitality. Away from huge resorts and the roar of pleasure boats, the pristine bay of Xpu-Ha is a natural haven where sea turtles make their nests and where Hotel Esencia invites guests, to make it their home in the tropics.
