One&Only Palmilla

Hwy. 1, Km 27.5, The Corridor, Baja California Sur, 23400, Mexico

Built in 1956 by the son of the then-president of Mexico, the One&Only was the first resort introduced to the Los Cabos area, and it retains an old-world ambience and elegance that is without match in the region. This spacious, leafy, distinguished resort is home to renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Market restaurant, and chef Larbi Dahrouch's more casual, waterfront spot Agua. Adding to the never-ending amenities are a sushi and ceviche bar that looks out onto the Pacific, a Jack Nicklaus golf course, and a top spa. Two pools seem to flow over low cliffs into the sea, and each of the beach casitas has its own infinity pool. Hand-painted tiles edge stairways leading to rooms and suites that have Bose sound systems, flat-screen TVs, illy espresso machines, and handcrafted Mexican accents like studded antique doors, wool rugs, and a gorgeous bar stocked to make any cocktail. Some patios and terraces have daybeds and unobstructed sea views.
