One & Only Palmilla Resort: Mexico

Overview

palmilla_overviewThe Palmilla resort-hotel is acclaimed as one of the most luxurious and breathtakingly beautiful resorts in the world. The resort consists of 172 elegant accommodations, including 152 spacious guest rooms and 20 suites. 1,400-square foot one bedroom suites offer magnificent views of the sea from all corners. Guest rooms, at 750 square feet, are among the largest of any resort. All accommodations (including the bathrooms) offer magnificent views of the sea. The resort also includes two pools, a conference center and wedding chapel.

When the resort opened it had guests lists that included names like John Wayne, Desi Arnaz, Leonard Bernstein, Dwight Eisenhower and Clark Gable. Bing Crosby eventually became a partner and a 1958 Sports Illustrated article featured Palmilla and gave the resort instant status. Today, the resort maintains the classic Mexican ambiance which has made it a favorite among an international “who’s who” since its original opening, while expanding and recreating the legendary property for a new generation of travelers.

Location

One & Only Palmilla rests on the tip of the Baja Peninsula where the azure ocean greets the mountainous desert terrain. Where Pacific waters merge with the Sea of Cortez and sandy beaches offer unimpeded views of gray whales rising majestically just beyond the crashing surf. This verdant oasis juxtaposed by desert and sea reflects the gracious style of Old Mexico with its red-tiled roofs, whitewashed walls, and idyllic setting of exquisite fountains, swaying palms, bird of paradise and other tropical bloom.

Dining
