An oasis situated where the Yucatán jungle dissolves into the pristine sands of one of the only remaining undeveloped shores of the Mayan Riviera, discover Hotel Esencia. Originally built as a hideaway home for an Italian duchess and reimagined as a boutique, luxury hotel, Hotel Esencia is a place where traditions of the past find a cosmopolitan sense of modernity. Under the new leadership of award-winning entrepreneur and art collector Kevin Wendle, the property has come to define unimposing luxury revealing 29 fully renovated rooms, suites & villas each enhanced by one-off collection of art and antiques, including traditional mid-century furnishings and works by Pablo Picasso, Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, and Serge Mouille, among others. With a new beach bar, poolside grill and cold-pressed juice bar, two new luxury villas, Villa Bel-Ha and Villa Xpu-Ha designed by leading architects Gabriel and Alfonso Nunez, the renovation will conclude for Fall 2016 to be followed by an expansion of additional suites to debut in 2017.
Hotel Esencia’s understated elegance, warm, intimate service and unmatched beauty have already captured the hearts of some of the most discerning global travelers, and with the final touches of the renovation unveiling this fall, is poised to become one of the most coveted destinations.
