This is truly a world-class experience. The location is amazing. If you are a kitesurfer, then this is the ultimate kitesurfing destination. Long Bay is magical. Water is warm, clear, the wind everyday was perfect, and the beach is stunning. The property is perfect for laying around reading a book, staring into Long Bay and watching the water change colors...

We stayed in Studio One, which turned out to be a perfect choice for us. It included an outdoor covered area that was shaded completely from about 10:00 am until dark. Perfect for remaining outdoors without frying in the sun (if you need to be concerned about sun exposure). It was exceptionally clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. It was very quiet,... More

So this is one of those reviews I have a tough time writing...part of me wants to keep it to myself! We loved Villa Esencia! For our vacation this was the perfect location, lodging, and level of privacy we were looking for while on Turks & Caicos. Our hosts Ritama and Kabir were fabulous. The pool feels private and the...

We stayed in an ocean view unit on the second floor in Wyakha. We had a wonderful week exploring the Turks and Caicos as this was our first visit. We enjoyed snorkeling at Smiths Reef, visiting other beaches such as Leeward, did some touring, but each day we returned to enjoy Long Bay Beach. We relaxed under the palm trees... More

Wonderful 7 days at Villa Esencia last week (March 2016). The beach (Long Bay Beach to be specific) was literally our backyard. It was never crowded, and sometimes it was completely private. It is quite an experience to have such a beautiful endless beach all to yourself. The villas are about 10 minutes by car from shopping and restaurants -... More

The reviews seemed promising, though they were over a year old. That was a concern. Google satellite showed all 4 villas under the same roof (yes..I get suspicious when I am off the "main" path") There are two others, but they are considered family villas. I also think it's important to know, as a base line, that I wanted something... More

Ritama is a wonderful host - very personable, friendly and welcoming. She made my fiancée and I feel very relaxed and at home - if you were lucky enough to have a home on a secluded white sand beach with excellent swimming and kite boarding.

My husband and I were looking for the nearest place to the Long Bay Kiteboarding (CTK) venue. We booked Villa Esencia/Wyakhu online and communicated with the managers (Ritama & Kabir) several times. They were very helpful and informative. The location is terrific, right on the bay, with a wonderful breeze, so we never turned on the A/C. The place is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Featured in Conde Naste "Brides" on best places for honeymoons in the Caribbean! Esencia is for people who want to come back to themselves through being with nature in a serene, natural and pure environment. The Villa sits on a gated estate of 2.25 acres of pristine land with only two Villas within a mile. You often will not see any one on the beach for days, with only an occasional boat going by. There's almost always a cool breeze, you are 100 feet from the waters edge, and you are surrounded by lush green. The beach is pure white sand and is 4 miles long. The water is a gorgeous turquoise color, warm and gentle. You can spend hours comfortably in the water. The sea is shallow and safe for kids. There's a beautiful pool and hot tub nestled amongst the palms. The Property Esencia is a 2.25 acre property of Provo jungle directly on the beach in Long Bay. The lush vegetation is wild and natural, giving you the feeling of being in the midst of undisturbed jungle. We have built in a way that flows with the land and the nature. Our pathways wind through the bush and follow nature’s creation and our buildings appear to have been dropped in, as we’ve cleared as little ground as possible. The smell of wild flowers tantalizes your senses and the beautiful wild orchids reveal their magic. The Villas We have four Villas on this large 2.25 acre estate. Our four buildings are tucked away in the bush and sit separate and own their own from each other. The units with each building each have their own entrances and views, looking in different directions, further adding to the feeling of being on your own. Yet you are on a gated and secure property shared with others. Within this natural beauty and simplicity Esencia is a first class resort property with all the amenities including high end design and construction, 3 pools, hot tub and fitness center. Here at Esencia you are ‘roughing it in style’. Long Bay Beach is the ideal place for a quiet and recharging vacation. This 3-mile white sand beach is a pleasure for long walks. The waters here are gentle and shallow. You can stand up and walk a long ways out with the waters just up to your waist. The turquoise blue warm waters a great for swimming or simply ‘hanging out’ in the water and absorbing that magic something that comes from the sea. You can stay for hours in the water and be at a comfortable temperature. Our section of beach here at Esencia is particularly suited to couples and families. The Palm trees interspersed on our property with the Tiki huts underneath give shade a privacy. There is always a place to sit where you are on your own. Chaise lounges, chairs, umbrellas and hammocks give you always a comfortable place to stay. You can leave your things on your chair as you go for a swim or return to your suite for a bite to eat. And parents feel safe for their kids to play. The shallow and safe waters, the quiet beach and the protected environment of Esencia make for a perfect family vacation. And if you want to be more active then we have that too. Stand up paddle boards and ocean kayaks are available for when you want to get out on the water. Take a paddle along the shore or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, there’s an old wreck a couple of miles out where you can take an afternoon cruse. Bring a mask and snorkel and see the many fish that made their home beneath it. And for the brave of heart, Long Bay has become recognized as the best place in the world to learn to kiteboard. Long Bay has the unique combination of the right wind speed and direction, warm and shallow waters, long beach and safety that make it a superb place to learn to kite. This exciting new sport is the fastest growing sport in the world today, and is good for both children and aging adults, men and women. We have on the property at the time of this writing an eight-year old girl who is learning to kite and an 83 year old man who is learning too! You are never too old to learn kiting. And if you’re already an experienced kiter, then come try out new tricks. The flat waters here make it a great place to take your next progression and there is an abundance of downwinders amongst the many islands, as well as the deep waters and waves just 5 minutes away on the other side of the island that can keep your adrenalin flowing. And if you’re not a kiter, you’ll love the colorful dance of the kites going by; its mesmerizing as the kites dance with the breeze and the kiters jump and turn and twirl with the wind and the sea. ... more   less
