One&Only Palmilla

Set upon one of the few swimmable beaches on the Baja Peninsula, with stunning views over Los Cabos, the One&Only Palmilla was once only accessible by yacht or private plane. It can now be reached by road but its exclusivity remains. Old Mexico is evoked in the architecture and design that is set upon grounds rich with exotic plants and swaying palms. 

Accommodations range from luxurious bedrooms to private villas, all of which have views over the ocean. Top-class furnishings are coupled with high-tech amenities for the most comfortable and opulent stay. All rooms, suites and villas come complete with butler service and all accommodations have ample bathrooms. With four restaurants offering the highest quality cuisine, three unique bar locations, two pools, a private beach and a spa and fitness center, you will have everything you need for the perfect getaway in Mexico.
