Playa Xpu-Ha, Mexico (PRWEB) October 18, 2007 -- Known to attract sophisticated families seeking a five-star vacation, beachfront Hotel Esencia, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, makes it even easier for parents to dine and spa alone. Realizing that parents are in need of a temporary respite even on vacation, Esencia now offers complimentary nannies-on-call around the clock (a $45 value) for guests who want to indulge in a massage at Aroma Spa or dine at Sal y Fuego. Aroma Spa is the only organic spa in the region and uses indigenous herbs, plants and flowers picked from its garden for body treatments. Sal y Fuego specializes in Mesoamerican cuisine, native to the Yucatan region, and guests can dine indoors, on the beach or in the garden. Guests can opt for the complimentary service for up to 2 hours at the Front Desk after booking a spa treatment or making dinner reservations. Two-bedroom cottages with large private pool and gourmet kitchen for use by the resort's personalized chef offer plenty of room for families.

While children are entertained with Spanish and Mayan classes and story telling of local fables, parents can enjoy quality time by exploring the palapa-roof Aroma Spa and organic garden. The setting is lush and green with open-air cabins and five indoor treatment rooms, four Jacuzzis and two Mayan-style domed steam rooms. Chemical-free herbs, plants and fruits are picked from the garden and custom-mixed while the guest watches.
Sal y Fuego, meaning salt and fire, highlights Mesoamerican cooking. Fresh organic produce is emphasized with the property's own herb and vegetable garden, elevating the quality and freshness of each ingredient. Utilizing an ancient Mesoamerican outdoor cooking method, certain seafood and meat specialties are simmered in banana leaves deep below the earth to enhance texture and flavor.

The extra person charge is $75 per night for children younger than 12 years old and $150 per night for young adults 12 years and older. Children under the age of 2 are free. Rates start at $525 for a Garden Suite with Plunge Pool and $1,500 for a Cottage with Private Swimming Pool. Rates include daily breakfast. Tax and service charge are additional.
