Long an exclusive hideaway for stars of screen, lauded authors, and the global jet-set, this lavish Mexico resort is a haven of refined tranquillity, with a playful twist of energy and discovery. Here, colourful gardens kiss the air with fragrant tropical blooms, creating quiet paths to the sea. With exquisite perfection reflecting the gracious style of Mexico, your every wish is indulged, your every dream fulfilled.

A verdant oasis on the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Where azure waters greet the mountainous desert and the Pacific Ocean merges with the Sea of Cortez. One&Only Palmilla is where warm waves break onto a dramatic shoreline… and grey whales can be seen rising majestically in the distance. Here, the gracious style of Old Mexico – with its red-tiled roofs, whitewashed walls, and idyllic setting of exquisite fountains – is quietly nestled amidst swaying palms, bird of paradise and other tropical blooms.

This is where exhilaration and serenity thrive in blissful harmony. This is One&Only Palmilla.
