Over the last few years, many destinations around the world have been deemed the “go -to” places for the best romantic vacations. While Mexico is generally known for being great for families, adults-only hotels like UNICO 20º87º Hotel Riviera Maya successfully create an experience that can be tailored into an unforgettable romantic getaway without the need to jump on a transatlantic flight. Plus, the all-inclusive concept truly allows you to curate a luxurious vacation without breaking the bank.
I recently visited Riviera Maya, and can confidently say that UNICO 20º87º Hotel Riviera Maya is the perfect destination for a romantic Mexico escape. If you’re looking for ideas for your next trip, here is my tried and true list of must-do’s at UNICO 20º87º:
Let’s Talk Food & Drink
The perfect time to put the saying: “the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach” to the test is none other than during an all-inclusive vacation. Luckily, UNICO 20º87º is home to four fine dining outlets that feature exquisite cuisines inspired by Mexico, Italy, Asia, and others. Cueva Siete, the hotel’s authentic Mexican restaurant is always a fan favorite and definitely not to be missed. Don’t forget to order the Mayan coffee!
When it comes to craft mixology, UNICO 20º87º pulls out all the stops. The hotel’s signature drink, Jade, is my personal favorite and has become a staple within the cocktail menu. Other excellent choices include the Frida and the Diego, which are prepared with Mexican spirits and perfectly complement each other. There’s truly nothing better than sipping on a delicious cocktail while enjoying a meal with your significant other.
You’ll be Dreaming About The Rooms
Have you ever wondered where to find those picturesque balconies with inviting hot tubs? Well, look no further than UNICO 20º87º. Over the last five years, the balcony views from this hotel have become iconic and one of the main reasons why many choose to vacation at the property. The best part? I was able to have my balcony tub prepared for me every evening, where my boyfriend and I enjoyed the sunset and some wine. This can be requested through the local host assigned to you at check-in, and it’s a simple way to up the romance a few notches during your getaway.
Make Time To Unwind
Between your ample pool and beach lounge time, I highly recommend booking a treatment at Esencia Wellness — an immersive experience for the self, featuring signature spa treatments, a full-service beauty salon and barbershop, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility. During my stay, I booked the Roses and Diamonds couple experience. This nourishing treatment offers body exfoliation, a full body massage, and a hydrotherapy circuit, setting the tone for the rest of our vacation.
Exclusivity At Your Reach
While many experiences at UNICO 20º87º are readily available for anyone to enjoy, there are select activities you and your significant other can book to make your stay that much more special. As a wine lover, I opted for a wine tasting at La Botella — the hotel’s wine store. We were presented with a selection of red wines ranging from full body to dry, and accompanied by cheese and cold cuts. There are also options to schedule romantic poolside dinners, tequila and mezcal tastings, and even a Mexican cooking class, to bring some special skills back home.
