Sleek New UNICO Hotel Opens Doors in Mexico

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - May 1, 2017

A sleek new hotel has opened its doors on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, and it’s got a secret: it’s an adults only all inclusive.

It’s called UNICO 20°87° Riviera Maya, and it’s one of the most exciting all inclusives to hit the market in some time.

The crisply-designed Akumal-area retreat ticks all of the boxes: 448 rooms, some with swim-up pools, some with outdoor spa tubs, others with outdoor patios.

An outdoor spa tub.

There are four eateries at this all inclusive Mexican resort, from the beachside 20.87 to the regionally-focused Mayan restaurant, Cueva Siete.

They’re joined by a three bars and a broad 24-hour room service menu.

The rotating-chef restaurant.

The hotel also has a holistic fitness programwith daily classes including spinning, synergy 360 and even pilates, along with a luxury spa.

The star of the show is the “Anfitrion” service, a kind of butler service (the hotel calls them a “local host” that includes in-depth local concierge services, valet service, help with check in and check out and even making reservations at nearby hotspots.

The spa.

And that’s the story here — yes, it’s an all inclusive, but this resort also wants you to get out an experience the joys of the Riviera Maya.

Even more interestingly, the inclusions are scalable; for the basic rate, you get a wide range of inclusions, from poolside and beachside service to free Wi-Fi.

For a 20 percent service fee, you can get unlimited golf, spa treatments, local tours and beauty and even barbershop services.

It’s a new kind of experience and concept for this sort of resort, and that’s something very exciting indeed.
