An exclusive getaway at the southern-most tip of Baja California where the Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean meet, One&Only Palmilla is also a soothing oasis with pristine beaches, lush, blooming gardens and graceful whitewashed architecture.

The embodiment of south-of-the-border chic, One&Only Palmilla provides easy access to championship golf, deep-sea fishing, seasonal whale watching and a complete menu of enticing treatments at the One&Only Spa. Lavish new beachfront casita suites frame private infinity-edge pools, while the spectacular four-bedroom Villa Cortez, privately situated on the beach, embraces Mexico’s distinctive artistry with every indulgent amenity. The resort features three pools, a wedding chapel and a KidsOnly program.
