Experience a retreat of exceptional luxury, where natural beauty and world-class amenities coexist in harmony. The legendary One&Only Palmilla has earned a deserved place among the world’s finest. The beautiful traditional architecture—with red-tiled roofs, whitewashed buildings and tranquil fountains—is nestled in a spectacular beachfront setting surrounded by swaying palms.
Originally built in the mid-twentieth century as an exclusive hideaway for the son of the President of Mexico, the resort soon became a favorite hideaway of Hollywood’s elite, including John Wayne, Bing Crosby and Lucille Ball. Today, the resort combines a long tradition of excellence with modern luxuries, offering extraordinary service, championship golf at the Palmilla Golf Club, award-winning dining and a breathtaking location.
Accommodations are beautifully appointed with elegant furnishings, handcrafted Mexican accents, aromatherapy turn-down menus, telescopes for star-gazing and whale watching, and much more. Guests will also appreciate the welcome tequila beverage, personal butler service and fresh fruit delivered to the room daily.
With so much to do, you’ll find plenty of ways to relax and pamper yourself at the One & Only Palmilla. Savor the gourmet cuisine of Agua or Market restaurants. Enjoy a soothing massage or body treatment at the spa. Play a round of golf or hit the tennis courts. Or simply relax and enjoy the Sea of Cortez vistas.
