Hotel Esencia is a blissful, boutique hotel set on the Mayan Riviera’s most beautiful beach.

The whitewashed, beachside building, originally built as a getaway for an Italian Duchess, combines sophisticated simplicity with all the luxury amenities you would expect of a five-star hotel.

Imagined by an in-house design team and offering unparalleled views of the ocean, Hotel Esencia’s Beach Suites include the Barcelona bath.

On choosing the Barcelona, the designer said: “We were looking for a double bath with simple lines that would integrate seamlessly with the distinctive white spaces of the hotel. Victoria + Albert’s Barcelona was the perfect choice.”
