UNICO 20°N 87°W
THE ULTIMATE LUXURY MEXICAN VACATION
All-inclusive redefined to a completely different level at the adults-only hotel in Riviera Maya. Majestically designed by Artigas and with interiors conceptualised by AvroKo, UNICO 20°N 87°W is one-of-a-kind, filled with local inspiration from Mexico’s favourite holiday destination. This luxury paradise features rooms with ocean-views, three expansive pools, five globally-infused gourmet restaurants and six bars and lounges that will rejuvenate your senses.
Set on 200 acres of jungle preserve with an authentic Mexican feel, the access to the resort is reserved for hotel guests only. Just south of Cancún along the eastern side of the Yucatan, UNICO 20°N 87°W is no more than an hour away from the airport and thirty minutes from Tulum. The resort was named after its geographical location on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula at 20°N latitude and 87°W longitude, creating the name UNICO 20°N 87°W.
This Mexican resort sets a new standard in all-inclusive luxury, including unlimited food and beverages, selected spa treatments and off-property excursions, access to the golf course and more. Differently from many other hotels that focus the brand on the location’s heritage, UNICO 20°N 87°W says it will “connect guests to the real version of each destination, as it is today.” That concept includes providing guests with a “host” for their stay which is assigned on arrival, who will oversee both concierge and butler services. For those looking to regenerate their body The Esencia Wellness Centre includes all the fitness facility needed: specialty classes, a visiting instructor program and personal training sessions, accompanied by a spa with 18 luxe cabanas, hydrotherapy facilities with a plunge pool and Hammam, beauty salon and barbershop equipped with a cocktail cart offering whiskey and beer, as well as steam and sauna room.
As part of the ‘UNICO 20°87° Inclusions’, Esencia Wellness Centre offers special treatments within the all-inclusive option, meaning guests can treat themselves at no additional cost with therapies. We recommend trying the 60-minute ESENCIA SIGNATURE treatment in which two therapists work in synchronicity to target tension at either end of the body, resulting in a sense of deep inner balance and overall well-being and the 130-minute. In addition, you could also try the AGAVE FOR ONE treatment, which is inspired by Mexican tradition and focuses on the use of blue agave as a moisturising agent, showering the skin with vital antioxidants and anti-aging goodness.
The property’s all-inclusive offerings take the guest experience to the next level with a dining experience that pays homage to regional Yucatan dishes and provides guests with a modern and colourful dining experience. The rotating chef, an all-day dining restaurant concept, headed-up by acclaimed Executive Chef Christian Bravo, celebrates Mexico’s culinary diversity and ingredients. The menu offers tastes from the past, present and future; taking guests on an edible tour of the country with dishes rooted in Mexican flavours and traditions.
Five unique dining experiences vary from elevated fine cuisine to a casual cafe setting, each offering up a menu inspired by local provenance. An extensive, expertly curated selection of spirits can be found at each bar and restaurant, accented by a mixologist-driven cocktail program. The eclectic dishes feature Mexican street food for breakfast, such as antojitos – “little cravings” – which include tamales, flautas, and gorditas. A more refined chef-driven menu is available in the evening with both familiar and lesser-known Mexican specialities. Guests are also invited to conclude every meal with a shot of top-shelf mezcal and a small chocolate.
The love affair UNICO 20°N 87°W has with its surroundings doesn’t stop there as guests are encouraged to fully immerse themselves in the hotel’s locale through exclusively developed off-property private excursions. Offering everything from exploring the region’s lesser-known alcoves with local hosts to dining at local tastemakers’ preferred restaurants and bars, the experiences are unforgettable. Guests can also chose activities on site including culturally inspired experiences such as cooking classes taught by renowned local chefs, and an Executive Mixologist infusing local flavours and ingredients to craft specialty cocktails throughout the hotel.
