Not far from Tulum, Mexico-though almost impossible to find without a local driver-is a very special hideaway called Hotel Esencia. It’s not just about the calm beach, thatched huts and lush tropical garden bungalows but the decor and design. All my favorite French mid-century furniture designers are collected by Kevin Wendle, the owner and my friend, and their pieces furnish the sculptural white rooms. I might even go as far as to say I enjoy the indoors almost as much as the exquisite jungle, sky and beach outside. -Linda Fargo
