UNICO 20º87º Hotel Riviera Maya, the aspirational, adults-only all-inclusive hotel situated south of Playa del Carmen, has announced the chef line-up for its second annual gastronomy series, Superbia Summer. From July 17 through August 25, the hotel's ultimate culinary experience will feature six chef takeovers with talent coming from Michelin Star rated and 5 Star Diamond Award-winning restaurants.

During each week of the series, a different chef will transform the hotel's restaurants into their very own culinary sanctuary. Superbia Summer invites hotel guests to embark on a multi-sensory journey as part of their all-inclusive stay, meaning discerning travelers and foodies can indulge in world-renowned chefs' hand-crafted meals at no additional cost.

Joining the Superbia Summer programming are world-renowned chefs ranging from American chef and restaurateur Daniel Patterson who is considered a leading proponent of California cuisine to Chef Abel Hernandez coming from 5 Star Diamond Award restaurant Eloise in Mexico City, Mexico and returning for his second year of Superbia Summer. This group of culinary leaders will bring their very own curated menus including specialties from their restaurant and most sought out dishes. The chef series is scheduled to include the following:

  • July 17-21: Chef Roberto Ruiz of Punto MX in Madrid, Spain, awarded with 1 Michelin Star.
  • July 24-28: Chef Maria Jose San Roman from Monastrell in Alicante, Spain, awarded with 1 Michelin Star.
  • July 31-August 4: Chef J.Antonio Medina of A'BARRA Restaurante in Madrid, Spain, awarded with 1 Michelin Star.
  • August 7-11: Chef Abel Hernandez from Eloise Restaurante in Mexico City, Mexico, awarded with 5 Star Diamond Award.
  • August 14-18: Chef Daniel Patterson, Founder of Daniel Patterson Group in California, USA. DPG started in 2006 with Coi, awarded with 2 Michelin Stars.
  • August 21-25: Chef Angel Leon from Aponiente Restaurante in Malaga, Spain, awarded with 3 Michelin Stars.

    In addition to chef takeovers, guests can enjoy wine and tequila tastings hosted by elite brands, bar takeovers by expert mixologists, and pool parties at the hotel's three luxurious pools.

    "With the success of last year's event, we wanted to bring back this incredible culinary series to UNICO 20º87º, making it even bigger and better than the year before," says Frank Maduro, Vice President of Marketing for AIC Hotel Group. "Delivering an unforgettable gastronomic takeover presented by Michelin Star chefs, paired with an immersive vacation showcases our commitment to giving our guests a carefully curated, luxury all-inclusive experience."

    UNICO 20?87? departs from the conventional all-inclusive experience and embraces the contemporary culture of the region. The hotel offers vacationers a real, unfiltered experience of Modern Mexico in the backdrop of relaxed luxury complete with locally sourced art and thoughtfully considered artisanal design elements.

    Situated south of Playa del Carmen in Mexico, this one-of-a-kind, all-inclusive hotel for the sophisticated traveler features 448 lavishly appointed guest rooms boasting predominantly ocean-views with semi-private swim-up pools on all ground floor rooms and outdoor double-hydro spa tubs on all remaining rooms, an in-room mini bar stocked by guest preferences, three expansive pools, a state-of-the-art wellness gym, a full-service spa, five globally-infused gourmet restaurants, six bars and lounges, and two swim-up bars. The stay includes all the amenities of a luxury all-inclusive hotel, including select tours, spa treatments, beauty salon, barbershop services and unlimited golf for a 25 percent service fee. It's a completely new standard for the all-inclusive vacation.

    Guests are encouraged to fully immerse themselves through exclusively developed off-property private excursions, from exploring the region's lesser-known alcoves to dining at local tastemakers' preferred restaurants and bars. On-property culturally inspired experiences include live artistic demonstrations from musicians and painters, and an Executive Mixologist infusing local flavors and ingredients to craft specialty cocktails throughout the hotel.
