A Feast for the Senses

Dining at VACAYA Oasis @ UNICO 20°87° is not a singular experience, but rather a multi-sensory adventure, with constantly changing tastes, textures, and sensations. While locally-sourced ingredients are a staple at every restaurant and bar, the offerings are a diverse mix of international flavors.

The restaurants vary from elevated fine dining to casual beachside buffet. Similarly, the cuisine ranges from simple and healthy to wonderfully indulgent. With a wealth of carefully executed options, and an exciting rotating chef concept, UNICO 20°87° is a haven for foodies.

To more closely connect with the culinary innovations of modern Mexican cuisine, UNICO 20°87° implemented a rotating chef program at Cueva Siete. The first to head up the kitchen is Chef Christian Bravo. Born and raised in Puebla, Chef Bravo has cooked all over Mexico and Spain, and even competed on Top Chef Mexico. Stay tuned for details of the next celebrity chef in UNICO 20°87°’s Cueva Siete line-up!

MI CARISA
MI CARISA
This restaurant is 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 smoky flavor to everything that passes through it. The warm, intimate setting lets each bite convey a sincere affection for the coastal Italian kitchen.

CUEVA SIETE
CUEVA SIETE
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 rooted in Mexican flavors and traditions. UNICO 20°87°’s mixologists offer tantalizing pre-dinner drinks here at the restaurant’s comfy bar.

MURA HOUSE
MURA HOUSE
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.

RESTAURANT 20.87
RESTAURANT 20.87
Incorporating the hotel’s coordinates into its name, this casual beachside venue aims to capture the heart of UNICO 20°87°. The 20.87 dining experience shifts throughout the day: from a bountifully diverse morning buffet – think fresh juices, eggs to order, and house-baked Mexican pastries – to an ever-revolving selection of international favorites for lunch, and classic grilled choice cuts of steak and fish in the evenings.

CAFÉ INEZ
CAFÉ INEZ
Café 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.

All-Inclusive. All Awesome.
Meticulously crafted cocktails and a selection of top-shelf spirits can be found at both of UNICO 20°87°’s main lounges, while the café sports a variety of juice creations. The energy shifts as the evening darkens to night with live performances, late-night snacks, and one-of-a-kind VACAYA programming.

PALMERA LOUNGE
PALMERA LOUNGE
When Prohibition took hold, the thirsty took off. Many of the best bartenders left for Cuba and the vibrant lure of its nightlife, triggering a Cuban cocktail renaissance. There was glamour, plenty of local rum, and world-class cigars. Palmera Lounge picks up where this intoxicating storyline leaves off: a new take on the classic, high energy Cuban clubs of the 40s with expertly crafted cocktails, bright, inviting design, boisterous live entertainment, and a cigar bar.

BAR BALAM
BAR BALAM
Bar Balam is UNICO 20°87°’s day-through-night cocktail bar, radiating warmth, while calling to mind the mystique of hidden-door cocktail dens of yore. Balam (which translates to jaguar in Mayan) is a powerful spirit in the ancient Mayan tradition – a divine symbol of strength and a protector of fields. This sense of strength and boldness infuses the drinks which present an insightful Mexican take on classic cocktail tradition.
