Los Cabos, Mexico

One&Only Palmilla

Legendary luxury on Baja's tip

What it is

A secluded, Mexican Hacienda–style resort for VVIP's.

What it isn't

Viewless. The resort is perched on the edge of the Sea of Cortez with sweeping ocean views from every room and corner of the resort.

What we think

Lofted above the quiet stretch of beach where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific, One&Only Palmilla has long been the preferred host of those looking for an exclusive escape—from John Wayne and Eisenhower in the early days to George Clooney and Jennifer Aniston today. Palmilla is more than a celebrity guest list, though. The 174-room resort doesn’t miss a detail; every old-world, elegant room has a private balcony or patio, menus to customize pillow and sheet selection, aromatherapy turndown service, binoculars for stargazing or watching the breaching whales offshore. In addition to the adults-only and family-friendly pools, One&Only Palmilla has the largest swimmable beach on Los Cabo’s coastline. While the property is easily walkable, the majority of rooms aren’t near the center of activity; they’re spread out and intimately private. Every room has a personal butler to take care of every detail and need. A heavenly spa specialises in the art of tranquil healing techniques and ancient healing rituals. Dining is masterminded by Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges and exceptional cuisine is served from four unique venues, each with a distinct menu. Perfect your swing with RoboGolfPro® before teeing off at the scenic Jack Nicklaus-designed 27-hole course. Kids and teens can dive into a fun-packed programme of activities suited just for them. Endless adventures on land and sea, are just some of the captivating ways to escape and unwind.

You're here because

You're looking for service that doesn't miss a beat, exclusivity that protects even the most paparazzi-sought and some of Mexico's most beautiful vistas.

The Moment

Stars begin to appear as the brilliant sunset colors transition to a deep nighttime indigo. Surrounded by candles, swaying palms and the gentle crash of the surf, you lean against your partner on the Terrace and toast to a perfect night.
