About Us

There has never been a better time to rediscover one of the world’s best resorts, One&Only Palmilla.The resort reopened in January 2004 after a $90 million enhancement project, which includes the addition of infinity edge pools to the Beach Front Casita Junior Suites and Beach Front Casita One Bedroom Suites, along with the newly built Villa Cortez.


Villa Cortez a hacienda inspired sanctuary, boasts four bedrooms, indoor and outdoor dining facilities, 12 person private screening theater, fully equipped gym complete with Kinesis studio, spa treatment area, leather paneled office and infinity edge pool and whirlpool.Guests enjoy 24-hour Estate Butler Service, including a dedicated household and culinary staff discreetly anticipating your every need.


Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten brings his world-renowned talents to SEARED Steakhouse. Adjacent to SEARED, Jean-Georges introduces Suviche Restaurant and The One&Only Lounge offering a striking presentation of Mexican ceviches and fresh sushi, and live lounge music into the night.

Best of the Best

A sublime place to rekindle romance or simply reconnect with yourself, One&Only Palmilla presides over one of the region's only swimmable beaches. Hemingway and Harlow loved the escape for its privacy, and today's guests are equally smitten with the luxurious suites featuring butler service and pre-Hispanic architecture. Dining is masterminded by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and indulgent spa treatments are offered in the privacy of a spa villa with an open-air garden, daybed and rain shower. Take time for a round or two on the signature Jack Nicklaus golf course, and for deep-sea fishing, snorkeling or diving.

Hotel Tip

The little whitewashed church on the property is perfect for a small wedding or vow renewal.

Highest Standard/Quality Boutique Hotel

By: honeymoon1986


Reviewed on: 18 Nov 2014

As a first stop in our honeymoon, the One and Only Palmilla hotel in Cabos was a great experience, although prices don't reflect the real cost because you will need to pay for breakfast, lunch and dinner at around $200 each. Nonetheless the staff expresses the real mexican highest treatment that will make you feel pampered and as the most important guest in the hotel. The room was excellent and the amenities as well.

We enjoyed our time at this resort. We travelled with our 2 years old twins and had a great time. The kid's pool was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful. We ordered a lot of room service and appreciated that we could order from all of the restaurants in addition to the dedicated room service menu. The spa may be the best I have ever been to.

Incredible stay at the One&Only Palmilla

By: Nancy


Reviewed on: 09 May 2017

My husband and I stayed at the One&Only for a long weekend getaway, and we couldn't have been more impressed with the resort and staff. From the moment that we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The level of service was remarkable. The staff went out of their way to attend to all of our needs and to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves. The grounds and landscaping were beautifully manicured. The food at Agua was delicious. The spa was the most beautiful, tranquil experience. I can't recommend the One&Only Palmilla highly enough, and my husband and I can't wait to return!

Review of the One and Only Palmilla

Reviewed on: 17 Oct 2017

There are no proper words for this hotel. I'll try but it won't do it justice. Pristine, incredible staff, thoughtful, clean, polite, accommodating, beautiful, impeccable, unbelievable food, warm, inviting the list could go on and on. From the moment we stepped foot on the grounds we were whisked away with popsicles and cold towels to wash our hands and face. The staff at this hotel is like no other I have every experienced. They are always smiling, friendly, helpful and you truly feel it is their pleasure to give you the greatest experience possible- whether it is at the pool, in the spa, at one of their amazing restaurants or in your room. May I be blessed enough to visit this hotel again with my husband and share many more special memories together.
