One & Only Palmilla, one of Los Cabos, Mexico’s most serene luxury resorts, has just completed a $30 million expansion, adding thirteen beachfront casitas, an 8,500-sq. ft. villa and two restaurants overseen by Michelin-starred chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The resort, which has been operating since 1956, now offers re-configured rooms so that each has a view of the Sea of Cortez as well as a private infinity pool and extended outdoor living space.
“These additions take our resort to new heights providing our guests with amenities that are simply unlike anything else in the luxury marketplace today,” Senior Vice President of Latin American and Caribbean One&Only Resorts Edward Steiner said. “We will always set the bar for elegance and service.”
Villa Cortez, the added private residence, sits perched on the cliffs on the edge of the resort. The villa has four bedrooms, private spa facilities, 12-seat theatre, interior and exterior kitchens, private gym and live-in butler facilities. Inspired by a traditional hacienda, Villa Cortez maintains country charm with the ultimate luxury One&Only is known to supply, including daily afternoon canapes and margaritas.
Vongerichten’s first West Coast restaurant venture, Market, features dishes with traditional Mexican ingredients, thanks to the chef’s collaboration with local farmers and fisherman to get the produce to the guest’s table. The second new restaurant, Suviche, offers Japanese cuisine by a Tokyo chef hand-picked by Vongerichten. The restaurant fuses local ceviche flavors with traditional sushi, complemented by an extensive tea menu and recommended sake pairing by a professional sake sommelier.
