Hotel Esencia


In a busy world more of us need to get rid of the distractions and reconnect.  For those looking to relax and unwind in a secluded and understatedly luxurious destination we have just the place.  Hotel Esencia.

This boutique hotel with just over 40 rooms sits on a 50-acre estate between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, just one hour south of the Cancun airport.


Whether you prefer a beach suite, jungle suite or private villa the rooms all have a traditional Mayan feel with pops of color that make you think of the Greek Islands.

With the most stunning beach I have seen in the region guests will enjoy relaxing on the powdery white sand of this quiet cove.  Step right into the Caribbean Sea where there is a reef sanctuary for sea turtles and exotic fish.  A variety of non-motorized water sport equipment is at your disposal to enjoy your time in the water.


The farm to table dining on property is simple, yet sophisticated and will cater to any palate. And if by chance guests want to venture out for an evening you have easy access to both Playa del Carmen and Tulum.


Wellness activities are plentiful for guests.  Yoga is offered each morning in the palapa, or enjoy a workout at the new health club that overlooks the estate’s cenote. 

The completely organic Mayan spa is the perfect place to allow the therapists to tailor treatments to your needs by blending modern wellbeing with ancient customs to cultivate beauty, balance, and peace.


Simplicity, elegance and beauty is what you will find at Hotel Esencia.  Let Wanderlust Travel plan your getaway to this Mayan retreat.
