Unico 20°87° – A Picture Perfect Resort

At Unico 20°87° luxury is apparent from the moment you enter the custom scented lobby and check in. Overwhelmed by the resort’s inspiring design and stunning interior, guests often find themselves reaching for their phone to capture the moment for their social media feeds. And the shots don’t stop there!

‘Instagram worthy’ holidays are on the up, particularly within the Millennial demographic and we’d certainly recommend Unico 20°87° for its envy making picture opportunities:

Rooms with a view

Guests will be stunned by the turquoise blue waters of the Riviera Maya and, as they enter their rooms and take stock of the beautiful panoramic ocean view, instinct will certainly see them reaching to capture the scene. Every room in the hotel is ocean facing so every guest has the opportunity to snap that perfect “And the holiday starts here” Instagram pic. While in awe of the region’s natural beauty, guests can make the most of their double hydro spa tub, which is situated on the balcony of every room from the second floor up or make use of the swim up room entry on ground level.

Unico 20°87°’s rooms have the wow factor on entering, incorporating clean lines and natural materials each one is designed with a better night’s sleep in mind and incorporates unique décor throughout. In fact, almost every artistic touch point has been provided by local artists, designers and sculptors to create a truly unique and personalised feel. The art in room can be purchased by guests who want to take home a memento that represents their authentic Mexican stay.

Stunning Sunsets

Grab a cocktail infused with local authentic flavours from Unico 20°87°’s expert mixologists and head for the beach to capture one the Yucatan Peninsula’s stunning sunsets – it’s the perfect picture opportunity. Offering a romantic setting for couples, you’ll be lost in a sense of wonder as the sky burns orange and red before the sun disappears over the horizon.

Unico 20°87°’s popular holistic fitness programme also offers an idyllic photo opportunity. Those guests that want to rest, relax and truly unwind can begin their morning by watching the sun rise and listening to the satisfying sounds of the crushing waves in a class of beach front yoga; or take it to a deeper level of spiritual healing with an indulgent meditation class. Both allow for the perfect Instagram shot combining a stunning backdrop with a health and wellness edge.

These indulgent experiences will definitely see the ‘likes’ soar as friends admire your holiday snaps.

Adrenaline Junkies

No holiday is complete without an excursion or two to show friends and family your adrenaline loving side. Guests wanting to be at one with nature should head to the exotic Garrafon Natural Reef Park, situated on the southern point of Isla Mujeres. The reefs, cliffs, and breath-taking views of the Caribbean Sea will leave travellers spellbound.

Unico also offers excursions for those that want to test their nerve.Head out on-board an army truck to Selvatica Extreme, the largest and fastest circuit on the peninsula, boasting 12 different high speed zip lines. After gliding between treetops on a canopy tour, enjoy the crystal clear waters of a nearby cenote. Afterwards try a lunch of local favourites and aguas frescas, a refreshing Mexican staple.

Foodie Favourites

No holiday is complete without the obligatory #foodporn shot and Unico’s restaurants offer plenty to work with. Varying from elevated fine dining to casual beachside buffet and with a diversity in tastes and flavours, guests won’t want to miss the chance to capture the colourful, tasty food that is presented to them.

One of the hotel’s most popular food concepts can be found at Cueva Siete where the executive Chef, Chef Bravo, offers guests an authentic tour of the regions flavours and produce to proudly showcase the very best of Mexico – guests are spoilt for choice as every dish is stunning and has to be uploaded to Instagram before being devoured.

The ‘must take’ Unico 20˚87˚ shot

Every hotel has THE must take picture location for that perfect Instagram pose and Unico 20˚87˚s is no different. Its ‘Bridge to the beach’ is definitely the place to be snapped and could easily work its way towards the accolade of most ‘Insta-famous bridge’. Not only does this route lead guests to the beautiful beach, it also entices guests to stop and take a stunning scenic shot with a classic pose. Guests can take advantage of the best of both worlds and either have the crushing waves of the Riviera Maya in the background, or the stunning hotel as the backdrop. Our personal preference is to take both.
