Hotel Esencia, Mexico Riviera Maya
Located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, Hotel Esencia is a unique and tranquil hideaway. Once the home of an Italian duchess, this wonderful retreat has been transformed into a fabulous boutique hotel and has become a sought after destination for honeymooners and couples seeking calm and serenity. Hotel Esencia is set on one of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches in the Riviera Maya, Xpu-Ha, where each year hundreds of sea turtles make their nests. The wonderfully sophisticated Hotel Esencia is the prestigious 2017 Condé Nast Traveler gold list winner.
All of the spacious suites and villas are either part of the original building or dotted throughout the tropical gardens. All have a generous outdoor terrace, indoor sitting area and super comfy king sized beds. You will find a large screen, high definition television complete with Netflix. An in-room sound system can connect to your own devices or opt to use the iPod provided, which has been preloaded with a specially designed soundtrack by celebrated DJ Michel Gaubert. Complimentary beach bags and Havaianas are provided.
Dining at Hotel Esencia takes place at The Pool Restaurant and on occasional evenings or during inclement weather, at The Garden Restaurant. The focus is on home grown or locally sourced ingredients, traditional Mexican flavours with Mediterranean influences. Your day starts with delivery of a wonderful bakery basket, fresh from the oven along with you choice and coffee or tea at a time which suits you. Grab a fresh juice from the beachside Juice Bar palapa - try the juice of the day or create your own from the available fruits, vegetables and superfoods.
The small Aroma Spa offers a wide range of treatments, some using natural products which are chosen and blended according to your needs. A range of healing treatments such as reflexology, reiki and neurolinguistic programming are also available. Enjoy the steam room and jacuzzi before your treatment.
Activities are simple and low key - grab a snorkel & fins to explore the marine life, take a walk along the pristine talcum-soft beach or recharge body and mind with a sunrise yoga class. For something a little more active, there's a small fitness centre with Technogym equipment and pilates reformer.
Book one of the wonderfully private Garden Suites with Plunge Pool.
Treat yourselves at Aroma Spa with the Essence of Love package. A foot ritual, massage and a private jacuzzi filled with salts and aromatic scents are the three parts of this treatment. Celebrate the joys of being together with a glass of Champagne each, fruit and chocolate.
Hotel Esencia accepts children all year round but don't expect to find a kids club or activities. All rooms will take an extra bed but for more space, book one of the fantastic 2 bedroom pool villas.
Aroma Spa offers a selection of treatments for kids including a chocolate bath and massage!
