With sweeping coastal views, unmatched services and impeccable fine dining, a stay at One&Only’s exclusive Palmilla resort feels like stepping onto a Hollywood film set. Tucked between the charming San José del Cabo and the more frenetic Cabo San Lucas, Palmilla offers a luxurious private retreat in Los Cabos, along the sparkling Sea of Cortez.
Sitting on 22 hectares and boasting incredible Spanish architecture, the stay’s highlights include a private butler service, swim-up bar, indulgent spa retreats and crystal-clear private beaches. A holiday hideout favoured by A-listers such as Jennifer Aniston, Oprah and Rihanna, One&Only Palmilla offers an indulgent Mexican oasis.
Stroll through the culturally-dense streets of San José del Cabo and you’ll find a vibrant culinary playground. For the ultimate palate indulgence, pay a visit to Sage Baja restaurant. Nestled in the town’s historic corner, the venue’s breezy, open-air dining sets the scene for a laidback hangout loved by locals and travellers alike.
Curated by chef Guillermo J. Gómez, the menu highlights include the burrata macha, raw tuna and passionfruit pairing, finished with a hearty lamb ragu. And for a nightcap, the wabi sabi sake mescal infusion is a must.
Between November and June each year, culture collides on the shores of Mexico. Each Thursday evening, the San José del Cabo Art District hosts a vibrant art walk, allowing locals and visitors to sip wine, sample cheese and discover some of the area’s top artists as they stroll down cobblestone streets.
When Hollywood’s awards season comes to a close each year, Los Cabos opens its doors to the exclusive after-parties of the stars. And it’s easy to understand the attraction.
The Mexican region is rich with character and charm, with a smattering of colourful colonial buildings and a variety of exclusive boutiques and restaurants. Enjoy snorkelling, hiking, paddle-boarding or a sunset boat tour around the intimate ocean playground.
