A New Category of All-Inclusive that Infuses the Local Culture into Everything

DCIM100MEDIADJI_0077.JPG

Unico 20° N 87° W cares so much about its region that the latitude and longitude is in the name.

This is a new category of all-inclusive. Set on the unrivaled sands of Riviera Maya, this game-changing adults-only resort immerses guests into the local scene right on-site. Locally-inspired cocktails and cuisine are just the start; enjoy the artwork in the room that reflects modern Mexico, the holistic spa and wellness center using traditional and locally-inspired beauty rituals, and excursions out beyond the resort that are not only encouraged but are even included.

Here, you don’t get a personal “butler” per se, you get a personal Anfitrión, a local host who will do everything a butler would with the added bonus of acting as an insider guide to the local area. They will help with things like hard-to-get reservations and letting you in on the region’s best-kept secret spots.

Cuisine is a Dish Best Served Local

When in Rome, right? How about, when in Riviera Maya? UNICO 20° N 87° W asks that question and definitely answers it.

The region comes alive through its exquisite flavors, and the culinary adventure here is a multi-sensory experience. With locally-sourced ingredients at every restaurant, UNICO 20° N 87° W puts a Mexican spin on several different types of cuisines from all around the world. Ranging from elegant dining to casual beachside bites, the culinary experience here has one constant throughout: quality.

Currently spearheaded by master chef Christian Bravo, the restaurant Cueva Siete serves up innovative modern Mexican dishes. As part of a rotating chef program, Christian Bravo is the first to make his mark, with other world-renowned chefs to follow in his culinary footsteps. This exciting restaurant is named for the seven origin caves of Mayan myth – aka, it’s as local as it gets, deriving its inspiration from the region’s history. The Mexican cuisine here features authentic dishes that range from classics to concoctions that are brand-new.

For Italian with a local spin, grab a seat at Mi Carisa, an ode to those sleepy coastline towns hugging the Mediterranean. The most elegant spot at the resort, the restaurant boasts wood-oven pizza, pasta dishes, cheese plates, and other classics in a warm, intimate setting. Mura House takes its inspiration from regions throughout Asia with a focus on Japan, creating a balance between traditional dishes and those that are uniquely fresh. Restaurant 20.87 is situated right on the beach, and offers a casual buffet breakfast (including house-baked Mexican pastries) and grill classics into the evening, serving up choice cuts of steak and fish. The Inez Café is the spot for fresh juices, coffee, tea, sandwiches, paninis, salads, and baked goods when you need that quick fix.

Throughout each restaurant, quality is key – and always local. And at the Palmera Lounge and Bar Balam, the cocktails are infused with just as much care. Be sure to get one of the signature drinks like the Xkeban (the Sinner), a vodka-based drink that will hit the spot and taste like paradise.
