The two of you have been to Cancun, you’ve done the Riviera Maya. But how about Isla Mujeres? This little island just 25 minutes off the coast of Cancun is a quiet oasis surrounded by wonderfully clear water and white sands. In November, the island will also hold another special appeal: the new Unik Island Resort & Spa.
The resort will be operated by the de la Peña family—long-time hoteliers in the Riviera Maya region of Mexico. “We’re raising the bar as far as hotels on this island are concerned,” says Patricia de la Peña, vice president of the hotel group. “With Unik Island Resort & Spa, we’re looking to attract the discerning traveler who has stayed at upscale hotels around the world—we want them to find in Isla Mujeres the same impeccable service and exquisite surroundings that they have grown accustomed to during their travels here in our corner of the globe.”
Why It’s Dreamy: The resort will include a total of just 84 suites, each featuring flat screen televisions, CD/DVD players, iPod docking stations, high-speed wireless Internet, 400 count bed linens, laptop-sized safes, fully stocked mini-bars and more. Every room, regardless of category, gets twice-daily maid service, lavish bath amenities, candles, bathrobes and slippers, aromatherapy at turndown and other services. The resort will feature six restaurants and bars with offerings ranging from afternoon high tea to Pan Asian cuisine.
The resort will also offer wedding packages arranged by the full-time, on-site wedding planners.
