Full accommodation information

Since opening its doors back in 1956, One&Only Palmilla has been a favourite retreat for Hollywood celebrities and discerning travellers alike.

Located on its very own peninsula, overlooking Los Cabos, the resort boasts the area's only swimmer-friendly beach, as well as incredible expansive views of the Pacific Ocean or Sea of Cortez from the private terrace of every room and suite.

With a location just two and a half hours flight from Los Angeles, One&Only Palmilla is the perfect choice for a twin-destination luxury holiday to North America

Guestrooms are elegant and stylish, with subtle, Mexican décor that lends a real sense of place. All accommodations also enjoy butler service, and throughout the resort high staff to guest ratios mean intuitive, personalised service comes as standard.

Five excellent restaurants provide sublime gourmet options. The innovative Suviche restaurant offers an impressive selection of fresh sushi and ceviches, with a breathtaking panorama of the Sea of Cortez. SEARED, overseen by renowned Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, is a stylish restaurant offering a mouth-watering selection of fine steaks and delicious fresh seafood, while Agua offers the very best of seasonal Baja specialties and plates to please every palate. 

For those deliciously lazy afternoons, you can unwind in the serene sanctuary of hammock hill, or surrender to a private beach cove with a floating bed and dedicated service to cater to your every wish. Alternatively, you can indulge yourself at the truly excellent spa by ESPA. Golfers will also love the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed championship course.

Meanwhile, the kids will be kept occupied by the fantastic KidsOnly club with supervised activities. From cooking lessons to piñata-making and a wide array of watersports on offer, there is something for everyone at this exceptional resort.

One&Only Palmilla is a sanctuary where luxury meets environmental responsibility. They've taken a bold step to minimise plastic waste by providing their own eco-friendly reusable bottles. It's a small change that significantly reduces plastic consumption, inviting you to sip responsibly.

One&Only Palmilla is a proud member of EarthCheck, holding a prestigious silver certification. This affiliation is more than a badge; it's a commitment to continually improve environmental practices and promote sustainability. EarthCheck provides invaluable guidance, ensuring the resort remains at the forefront of eco-conscious hospitality.
