One&Only Palmilla
At the tip of the Baja Peninsula, where turquoise waters lap against golden sands, sits the exclusive One&Only Palmilla. Set in a lush tropical garden along the Sea of Cortez, the resort highlights extraordinary views of the Los Cabos landscape with beachfront access to one of the region's few swimmable beaches.

Luxurious rooms and suites are finely appointed with deluxe amenities and spacious outdoor terraces, some with private plunge pools. Grand villas provide for the ultimate private escape with residential amenities and space for entertaining. Dedicated butlers offer intuitive service and thoughtful little touches to surpass all expectations.

Dining is masterminded by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and exceptional cuisine is served from four unique venues, each with a distinct menu.

A renowned destination spa provides a sanctuary for rejuvenation with a range of results-driven therapies and pampering salon and grooming services. Daily yoga is offered in a secluded garden along with an on-site fitness centre and movement studio providing a complete environment for wellness and healthy pursuits.

For golfers, a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature designed golf course features deep arroyos and scenic ocean views tempting even the most seasoned of golf enthusiasts.

In partnership with TropicSurf, the Art of Luxury Surf invites guests to discover this renowned sport. Plus, the resort offers ongoing special events and endless pursuits of pleasure. Whether seeking adventure on land or sea, One&Only Palmilla offers much to explore.
