Unik Island Resort & Spa opens its flagship hotel


Unik Island Resort & Spa (www.unikresorts.com), a new luxury boutique brand in Mexico, announced it will open its flagship hotel on November 1, 2008 on Isla Mujeres. Located just off the coast of Cancun, Islan Mujeres is accessed by a 25-minute private yacht transfer, which takes you to the resort that will feature 84 suites and full-service amenities.

Operated by the de la Peña family, long-time hoteliers in the Riviera Maya region of Mexico, Unik Island Resort & Spa opens the door to a level of service and accommodations that had yet to be reached in Isla Mujeres. Patricia de la Peña, Vice President, stated, “We’re raising the bar as far as hotels on this island are concerned. 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.”

A total of 84 sleek and modern suites will feature exquisite views and every amenity, including 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 much more. Every room, regardless of category, gets twice-daily maid service, lavish bath amenities, candles, bathrobes and slippers, aromatherapy at turndown and an array of other services that keep Unik Island Resort & Spa’s accommodations several steps above the others in the region.

Six restaurants and bars will bring Mexican, Asian, and Continental cuisine to life — Pearl, a contemporary dining experience; Breeze, just steps from the pool with a casual setting open for lunch and dinner; Jade, for Pan Asian specialties; La Isla Grill & Lounge, living up to its name for lunch time by the pool; the Turquoise Lounge, the setting for high tea in the afternoon and cigars and drinks in the evenings; and the Aqua Pool Bar, for swim up libations.

Beyond the walls, the natural beauty of Isla Mujeres serves as a backdrop for the elegant pool area, built on four different levels and following the lay of the land. Each pool offers guests a different experience, and each flows into the next in a soothing cascade of blue water. After a day of fun in the sun, guests may soothe tired muscles and rejuvenate spirits with a mixture of Mayan treatments and modern techniques at the Spa Izel.

Meetings and groups are welcome to the state-of-the-art facilities, which can accommodate up to 210 attendees. Business services are available, as are full-service wedding planners and an assortment of wedding packages.

The resort is located eight miles north of Cancun across the Caribbean Sea on Isla Mujeres. Upon arrival at the Cancun International Airport guests are whisked away via hotel-arranged car service to the resort’s Dockside Registration/Reception area, where they are greeted with refreshing beverages and light appetizers before boarding the complimentary, private boat service that will take them directly to the resort’s pier in just 25 minutes.
