Xpu-Ha beach, near Playa del Carmen (The Riviera Maya, Mexico)
A small boutique style hotel in a 50 acre private estate along a two mile stretch of white sand beach and overlooking the ocean. Lovely gardens and pool, a spa, good restaurant and friendly staff.
Yoga classes. Snorkelling and visits to Tulum and Sian Ka'an Biosphere can be arranged locally.
29 spacious rooms with either a garden or sea view, the suites are in the main house with wonderful views and the other rooms are in cottages with 2 floors throughout the grounds. Rooms have a minimalist theme but are very comfortable and well equipped with a terrace or balcony and some with a private plunge pool.
Quiet, friendly atmosphere and attention to detail.
Client comments and reviews
Hotel Esencia at the end was a brilliant way to finish the trip off. - JS (January 2007)
