One & Only Palmilla


South America

In another lifetime, the One and Only Palmilla played host to yesteryear mega Hollywood stars like Clark Gable and John Wayne. Today, even in its much larger avatar, it continues to play host to a swish crowd.  Set adjacent to the magnificent Sea of Cortez immersed between blues skies and the azure sea, the One & Only Palmilla is a luxurious paradise. Its heady combination of authentic Mexican hospitality, high calibre culinary delights, fantastic spa treatments, adventure activities and plush accommodation makes it one of the most prestigious resorts in Mexico. Along with the wide range of accommodation options it offers via its 173 rooms and villas with breathtaking views, it also has the privilege of being the only resort in the area with a swimmable beach. The resort features 5 amazing bars & restaurants, two of which are headed up by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten – Seared for Kobe & Wagyu beef and Suviche for sushi and ceviche. One of the highlights is the 27-hole golf course personally designed by Jack Niklaus.  At One & Only Palmilla, experience the fusion tradition and modernity to create a picture perfect beach getaway.
