One&Only Palmilla

Los Cabos, Mexico

What it is

A secluded, Spanish Mission–style resort for VVIP's.

What it isn't

A scene. The rooms are spread out to ensure privacy and solitude.

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 173-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, even a telescope for stargazing or watching the breaching whales offshore. In addition to the adults-only and family-friendly pools, One&Only Palmilla has the only private beach on Los Cabo’s rocky 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. Getting to the resort’s beautiful destination-unto-itself spa, the 27-hole golf course or the restaurants—among the options: Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s refined take on steak at SEARED and elevated Mexican at Agua—isn’t a trek, though. Every room has a personal butler who will whisk you anywhere, anytime.

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.


The resort sits on very tip of the Baja Peninsula, atop a rocky promontory just above the only swimmable beach around. Direct flights to San Jose Del Cabo International Airport are offered from many U.S. hubs, though most flights from the East Coast require a transfer. It’s about a half an hour’s drive from the airport to One&Only Palmilla.
