Set on the stunning white beaches of Riviera Maya, UNICO 20°87° immerses guests in the culture of the region, from the locally-inspired cocktails and cuisines to the art in the rooms. Three unique pools and holistic spa and wellness center drive home a sense of relaxed luxury, while exciting pop-up events insert a touch of spontaneity into the experience.
Location is at the heart of the UNICO 20°87° experience. That’s why we’ve put the latitude and longitude of the region in the hotel name - 20°N 87°W. These coordinates are representative, not only of UNICO 20°87°’s devotion to its location, but also its ambition to immerse guests in the region’s beauty and culture. Through a staff of local experts, guides, artisans, and specialists, UNICO 20°87° is able to showcase the true heart of the Riviera Maya.

All of the hotel accommodations feature a Local Host to provide an added level of personalized service.
Dining at UNICO 20°87°is not a singular experience, but rather a multi-sensory adventure. While locally-sourced ingredients are a staple at every restaurant and bar, the offerings are a diverse mix of international flavors. Our restaurants vary from elevated fine dining to casual beachside buffet.
A love letter to the romantic coastlines and flavors of the Mediterranean. UNICO 20°87°'s most elevated dining experience, Mi Carisa focuses on the traditions and practices of coastal Italian cuisine. That culinary heritage is most deeply honored in the form of a beautiful wood-burning oven, imparting a wonderful smoky flavor to everything that passes through it. The warm, intimate setting lets each bite convey a sincere affection for the coastal Italian kitchen.
Named for the seven origin caves of Mayan mythos, Cueva Siete—or Cave Seven—derives its inspiration from all that is Yucatecan. This regionally focused concept aims to harness the mysticism and reverence of Mayan culture, serving dishes deeply rooted in Mexican flavors and traditions. Cueva Siete is unique as a strong, chef-driven concept where the chef will be rotated every so often. Now it's turn for Chef Xavier Perez Stone, who has acquired the culinary skills to evoke the everyday flavors of Mexican gastronomy through his dishes.
While Mura House draws flavors and techniques from throughout Asia, with a concentration on Japan, its cuisine is guided by three principles: the harmony of flavor, precision through preparation, and quality of ingredients. The restaurant aims to achieve a balance between tradition and uniqueness by bringing together three different styles of Japanese cuisine-teppanyaki, yakitori, and sushi.
Incorporating the hotel’s coordinates into its name, 20.87 Restaurant—the hotel's casual beachside venue—aims to capture the heart of the UNICO 20°87° experience. The dining experience is fitting with a concept that shifts throughout the day: from a bountifully diverse morning buffet—think fresh juices, eggs to order, and house-baked Mexican pastries—to a classic grill in the evenings, serving up choice cuts of steak and fish.
Cafe Inez is UNICO 20°87°’s own take on European café culture: an important social gathering setting, often a stopping off point in between activities. A way to refuel, rejuvenate and recharge. Fresh juices, coffee, tea and baked goods are served in the morning while the menu transitions to sandwiches, paninis and meal-sized salads for lunch and dinner.
