The luxury resort of Esencia on the Maya Riviera coastline between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. The hotel has 30 rooms in total, and is the former home of a Italian duchess - this is real luxury in Mexico. The resorts grounds cover some 50 hectares in total.
Esencia resort is a small, minimalist, boutique style luxury resort on the Riviera Maya of Mexico. The decor is elegant, and the atmosphere exclusive yet unpretentious. The gardens are exquisite and the hotel almost entirely whitewashed in colour. Unfortunately, many rooms don't have sea views - only the most expensive have this priveledge. Many rooms have private swimming pools, and it's also possible to book individual villas. Esencia also also a spa and the restaurant gets fantastic reviews.
The nearby white sand beach is quite spectacular and the hotel is suitable for both honeymoons and family vacations in Mexico - cost is about $500 per night (and upwards).
