UNICO 20˚87˚ Hotel Riviera Maya dials up the all-inclusive vacation

These days, it can seem nearly impossible to unplug and relax, even while on vacation. But at UNICO 20˚87˚ Hotel Riviera Maya, Mexico’s all-inclusive and adults-only hotel along the coast of Rivera Maya, escaping the everyday has never been easier.  

UNICO 20˚787˚ isn’t your standard all-inclusive hotel. The luxury begins immediately upon arrival at the hotel’s highly Instagrammable lobby (think lofty ceilings, live plants, earthy materials and chic, wrought-iron chandeliers). After being greeted with cool towels and a refreshing beverage, you’ll be able to choose your own room scent from a selection of custom candles. Each guest is also assigned a personal Anfitrión, or local host, who provides assistance with everything from local recommendations to making reservations. 

Each of UNICO 20˚787˚’s 448 guest rooms is decorated with a mix of regionally sourced organic and handmade items. Ground floor accommodations  offer semiprivate swim-up pools (best enjoyed with a cocktail in hand), while upper floors boast spacious outdoor patios with ocean views and double-hydro spa tubs. 

The best way to navigate the hotel’s abundance of inclusive amenities and activities is through the UNICO 20˚787˚ app, which allows guests to make reservations, book tours, order room service and find information about the hotel’s pop-up activities—which include everything from Mixology 101 to organized beach walks. If you’re looking to get a workout in, there are also water sports and fitness classes offered throughout the day.

For a more laid-back experience, head to the Esencia spa, where select treatments are included in your stay. All of UNICO 20˚787˚’s three on-site pools offer food and drink service, as well as private cabanas that can be rented in advance. 

When it comes to dining, choose from four on-site restaurants that offer high-quality cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients. Options range from casual coastal fare at the beachside 20.87 Restaurant to Yucatan-inspired cuisine at Cueva Siete, helmed by celebrity chef Xavier Perez Stone. There’s also three on-property bars offering a robust mixology program and live entertainment. If you prefer to dine in, room service is available 24 hours a day and can be ordered with the press of a button via the hotel’s app. 

While you may never want to leave the property, don’t miss the hotel’s excursions, most of which are also included in your stay. Take a guided tour of local landmarks such as the Mayan jungle, Isla Mujeres, Garrafon Natural Reef Park and Tulum, or swim with the dolphins, embark on a scuba-diving adventure, or enjoy a sunset sail.

With endlessly customizable options available at your fingertips—from room scent to daily activities—a stay at UNICO 20˚787˚ is whatever you decide to make it. And what could be better than that?
