Hotel Escencia, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

With just the right amount of aristocratic charm and rustic appeal, Hotel Esencia lies on a 50-acre estate between Tulum and Playa del Carmen that was once the home of an Italian Duchess.

A tucked-away jewel on a powdery beach, this heavenly hideaway has been called a magnet for tastemakers. Expect sunrise yoga, private trainers, in-room massages and locally-sourced Mexican cuisine. (Excuse us while we pack).

If you go, don't forget your T'zikal travel kit to keep your locks nourished with Ojon oil and natural botanical ingredients.
