AIC Hotel Group recently announced the launch of UNICO Hotels, a new adults-only, all-inclusive hotel brand designed to reflect each property’s locale and native culture. 

The nomenclature will play on the latitude and longitude of each location, with the first hotel, 20° 87°, an UNICO Hotel located in the Riviera Maya on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, scheduled to open during the first quarter of 2017. 

Signature guest experiences consistent in each hotel throughout the UNICO Hotels brand will include an in-room gallery with art to purchase from local artisans and an “Experience Room” where guests select their own beach gear and personalized in-room amenities sourced from local craftsman.

Food and beverage offerings will include on-site distillery or brewery incorporating flavors and ingredients from the region, as well as an annual rotating chef restaurant concept, with a focus on emerging talent and flavors. 

Embracing a more local approach, UNICO Hotels will offer all guests a unique “Host” for their stay, replacing the traditional butler service. 

Services range from arriving in a custom-scented lobby where guests are introduced to the Guest Experience App, which features information on each week’s activities, to gastronomy and libation mixology that foster a sense of regional celebration.
