Esencia sits right on the beach in Xpu-Ha. It is next to the Chac Mol and the Xpu-Ha Beach Dolphin Discovery. This property encompasses 50 acres of the Yucatan Peninsula. In fact, the private beach that is part of Esencia is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Yacutan Peninsula.
The luxury resort is about a 20 minute drive to Playa del Carmen. The property was opened in 2006, and renovated last in September 2010. Due to the very clever use of the color white in all the décor, the natural vegetation, color of the ocean and the sand, are all very much apparent to the guest. A few hints of the traditional Mayan culture can be seen by the fixtures and furnishings around the hotel.
Esencia is also a wedding destination, and arrangements can be done for couples who wish to exchange their vows on the white sandy beach. The property has a very good restaurant and spa. The rooms have also been done in immaculate white, with high-quality Egyptian cotton bed-linens. Each room has an entertainment system as well as shades that can be controlled electronically. A mini-fridge is constantly re-charged with complimentary drinks. A light breakfast is delivered to the doors of the rooms in the mornings. Service is efficient and discreet. Complimentary high-speed Internet is available in the rooms, with Wifi Internet access available only in the lobby of the establishment.
