What guests loved the most

“Location, setting, exclusive luxury and unique boutique style, like something from a period movie but with all the modern trimmings and attention to detail. Beautiful nature. It really felt like the tropical villa of an Italian duchess (which it formerly was)”


“Room was pretty though had some issues. Beach was nice. Next door restaurant was nice. Grounds were pretty.”


“Small and intimate, the hotel is beautifully set, enjoying a wonderful situation and private beach. Facilities are excellent and service top notch. Nothing is too much trouble with lots of nice little touches- complimentary coffee and pastries delivered to your room in the morning and tea on the terrace in the afternoon. Dining was a real pleasure, a feast for the eyes and tastebuds. Esencia is a little paradise that cossets you.”

“The location is out of this world. The rooms were immaculate and the staff was excellent in tending to our every need. The beach is fabulous. It will damage your pocket book, but the romantic feel of Esencia is worth it!”


“Staff, Comfort, beach, quality, Luxury - Meeting the owner. Breakfast is top notch.”

“The reason I love Esencia so much was the style and incredible detail that went into this place. From the stunning subtle branding on the cocktail menu's to the chicest and comfiest sun loungers known to mankind. You can tell a huge amount of effort has gone into every thought behind this hotel with impeccable taste and craftsmanship. It is not over the top but cool, chic and in keeping with the setting which makes it even more special. It really is paradise!”


“Absolutely everything, especially the super friendly staff. Everything was perfect. Our new favourite hotel. Will be back soon. ”
