Welcome to My Estate in Tulum

Esencia is not a typical hotel, though it certainly offers the personal service and pampering facilities you’d expect at refined, luxury resorts in Tulum. It is not a condo, though it has the privacy, luxury and personal touches that you’d want in your own residence.

Esencia is a 50-acre private estate, with an awe-inspiring beachfront, two swimming pools, day spa, gourmet restaurant, and an indulgent atmosphere fitting of royalty. In fact, the property and many of the buildings once served as the exclusive beach-side retreat of an actual Italian duchess. Though friendly, warm and generous, the duchess demands the very best and Esencia still benefits from her superior taste, her impeccable style and her zest for life.
