Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Visited by celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Eva Longoria, One&Only Palmilla is an exclusive 5-star resort on a wild stretch of the Baja Peninsula. It’s a sprawling beachfront property with manicured grounds and two infinity pools, one with its own waterfall and lazy river, as well as a secluded adults-only pool. The nearest town is San Jose del Cabo, which is 10 minutes away by car. The town is described as a "peaceful" place by Fodor's, but buzzier Cabo San Lucas is a 20-minute drive away.
Plenty of treats are laid on for free, including welcome tequila, poolside popsicles and oxygen shots, a packed beach tote and daily fresh fruit. Complimentary on-site facilities include an outdoor basketball court, paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkelling. Guests can also call on a team of butlers to unpack their suitcases and prepare afternoon snacks, and it’s this personal service that "makes this big resort feel like a boutique hotel", says Travel + Leisure.
The spa has a sauna, steam rooms and outdoor plunge pools, and treatments can be arranged in private villas or in oceanfront Palapas. There’s also a full gym and guests can attend fitness classes and boot camps for free. Enjoy sushi and cerviche paired with sake or Asian-inspired fine dining. Agua, the open-air restaurant by the pool, serves Mediterranean dishes with a Mexican influence. Drinks and lunchtime snacks are available at the terrace café. Across the road lies a 27-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus. Guests benefit from reduced green fees and get complimentary use of a golf cart, the practice facility, bag storage and water.
Spacious rooms and suites overlook the Sea of Cortez or the Bay of Cabo and binoculars can be requested for whale-watching -- there’s a good chance of seeing grey whales on their migratory journey from the Arctic in December-March. Tiled floors, colourful prints and heavy hardwood furniture create a tropical feel, and all rooms have free Wi-Fi. Several of the Ocean Front Suites have their own private infinity pools.
