The coastlines of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula are a haven in themselves — sandy beaches, crystal clear water and endless sunny afternoons — and its paradise levels are about to be upped by the arrival of UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya. Scheduled to open in March 2017, the UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya (whose name plays on the 20° N 87° W location of the hotel), is the ultimate tropical getaway experience.
From the host service (not too dissimilar to a traditional butler) attending to your every need, to the Esencia Beauty Bar located at the exclusive Esencia Wellness Centre, where you can select your own personalised in-room amenities made with local ingredients and the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind art from local artisans, UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya’s unrivalled attention to detail makes their all-inclusive a safe haven for relaxation, fun and getting your tan on.
UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya’s food offerings are also otherworldly. Celebrating the local region’s delicacies, with an executive mixologist creating speciality cocktails infused with local flavours and an annual rotating chef restaurant concept (with every visit you’ll get an experience that’s entirely new) focusing on emerging talent and excellent flavours, you’ll never order the same thing twice.
For when you want to kick back, relax and have a lie-in, the hotel will feature 448 guest rooms with ocean-views, plunge pools and double hydro spa tub options (this sounds worth a visit in itself), mini bars stocked for cocktail making, three expansive outdoor pools, five gourmet restaurants, six bars and lounges and even two swim up bars. If this much relaxing doesn’t take up all your time (the UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya has a very flexible, no-itinerary-necessary focus), “The Proud Local” experience will whisk you away to the local’s favourite bars, beach spots, lesser-known alcoves, mezcal tastings and unlimited golf, just to name a few.
Individual in style, architecture and aspirations, the UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya immerses you in the local Mexican world, while whisking you away to a tropical paradise. You’ll find a whole new meaning to the word escape.
For Art Basel Miami, where the art world comes together to celebrate the weird, wonderful and downright bizarre artworks from up and coming artists and established names, UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya will be anticipating its 2017 opening with a three-day pop-up event at its sister hotel, Nobu Eden Roc Miami Beach. Featuring art displays by Angula Cero Art Gallery and a Jewellery Trunk Show by Mexican designer Caralarga alongside massages and artisanal soap gifting from their very own Escencia Wellness Centre, UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya invites art aficionados and Miami locals to their paradise pop-up, open 1-3 December.
