Hotel Esencia - Caribbean Coast

Set on a blissful stretch of white-sand beach and surrounded by a 50-acre tropical oasis, Hotel Esencia is the most elegant boutique retreat on the Riviera Maya. Formerly the private home of an Italian duchess, you’ll find that peace and tranquillity reign here. Whilst less than an hour from Cancún, you’ll feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
