Hotel Esencia, Tulum, Mexico

Once the private hideaway of an Italian duchess; now the A-list’s favourite secret Mexican escape set betwixt lush jungle and Xpu-Ha's postcard-perfect beach.

Loved for its secluded suites: hugging the beach or enveloped in jungle greenery; and its fab fusion of Mexican and Mediterranean cuisines and the best margaritas in town), this storied 50-acre estate, sits on perhaps the most pristine stretch of sands in all of Mexico; its sublime tranquillity bound to send you off into a dreamy 'Mexi-coma'!

​The Main House is at the heart of the hotel, around which footpaths lead to only 40 suites and three villas where guests enjoy genuine privacy and top-flight hospitality

Situated squarely between Tulum and Playa del Carmen, you're just 20 minutes away from the Mayan Pyramids, underground cenotes and some of the Riviera’s best nightclubs. And for an adventure just steps from Esencia's beach, there's a reef sanctuary for sea turtles and colourful exotic fish – one of the region’s best kept secrets.​
