Unico Riviera Maya Resort in Mexico
As a travel agent, I have visited a lot of resorts. I’m always looking for something unique and special to share with my clients.
The all-inclusive Unico Riviera Maya resort in Mexico checks that box bigtime and definitely has that “wow factor” to set it apart!
There is nothing cookie-cutter about this resort. They’ve taken great care to showcase the heart of the Riviera Maya region throughout the property, and you’ll feel immersed in the region’s beauty and culture from the moment you arrive.
Every detail has been well thought out, and the modern Mexican design is absolutely stunning.
The rooms have a rustic-meets-modern kind of vibe with elegant wooden features and decor accents made by local artisans.
Most of the rooms have an ocean view, and they also have a luxurious soaking tub on the balcony.
Just picture yourself relaxing in your tub (that your butler has drawn for you with flower petals), sipping on a glass of champagne, and soaking in the ocean views – it’s the definition of being pampered!!
The Unico Riviera Maya resort is known for its top notch food using locally-sourced ingredients. Guests can enjoy a diverse mix of culinary innovations highlighting a variety of international flavors.
One of the really unique things about this resort is that there is a mixologist on staff who creates delicious handcrafted cocktails. My favorite is called the Sinner at Bar Balam, which has chile-infused vodka, strawberries, agave, basil, mint, and lemon. It is spicy and sweet and totally delicious!

Culturally immersive experience showcasing the region
The Unico Riviera Maya resort was designed by a woman.
The 20°N 87°W (or 2087) that you’ll see in the official resort name represents the latitude and longitude of the resort. This is done to show how important the location of the resort is and how proud they are of the Riviera Maya region.
