Seducing A-list actors and Hollywood starlets with a perfect, sunny climate year-round, breath-taking beaches and honey-hued rock formations jolting from the crystalline Sea of Cortez, Los Cabos is one of the most exclusive destinations on Mexico's Baja California Peninsula. Within 55 lush tropical acres is Only&Only Palmilla, just 10 minutes’ drive from the enchanting Mexican town of San Jose del Cabo and sporting one of the only swimmable beaches in the region. Its privileged location doesn’t mean it’s restricted to the rich and famous however; with a multitude of land and water sports, fine dining in stunning venues, and modern amenities that ensure every guest is looked after, your multi-generational entourage will be made more than welcome!

For the water babies…

Two striking beaches edge the resort, with Pelican Beach being one of the only swimmable beaches in all of Los Cabos; this charming stretch is situated on the northern shore, where families may unwind by its serene shores in the knowledge that little ones are safe with a lifeguard on hand. Sun loungers are scattered across the sands, with magnificent umbrellas offering shade from the sizzling sun, or you can always refresh in the family-friendly Agua Pool. A toddler area beside the pool offers kid-size sun loungers and a gentle play and paddle area so your little sea squirts can keep cool. 

For the excitable kids…

No parents allowed! The KidsOnly Club is an exciting tree-house style club where inquisitive kids can join in with activities, games and competitions with their fellow baby-faced guests. Completely free of charge and open daily for children aged 4-11 years, after your day of rest, expect your young ones to come running over eager to show you the piñata they’ve made, demonstrate the Spanish words they learnt in class, or boasting of their triumph at the beach tug of war.  During the summer months, additional activity camps are held including pizza making, beach bootcamp, and golf and tennis clinics. 

For the pretty young things…

Fresh-faced beauties love to pose, and what better photo opportunity than riding the waves with Tropicsurf? Master the ‘Art of Luxury Surfing’ with some of the world’s best surfers on the rolling waves of the Sea of Cortez – regardless of your age or ability, lessons will be tailored to you, and will help you get the best buzz out of this surfari adventure. Once you’ve channelled your inner beach bunny, head over to the salon for a spruced up style from Beverly-Hills based celebrity hair stylists Jonathan Antin and Amanda George. Young charmers even have their own private grooming studio with Barber&Blade, who offer a specialist menu just for men, consisting of shaving, grooming, facial and scalp therapies.

For the busy mums…

Inspired by ancient traditions and modern result-driven techniques, the One&Only Spa provides the perfect sanctuary to unwind and revamp.  Choose from a curated collection of treatments undertaken using ESPA products, or speak to one of the highly-trained therapists to discuss your desired results and create a personalised spa journey. Treatments may include the 2-hour Baja Deep Tissue Pindas Ritual, consisting of a scalp and body massage, gentle stretching and herbal hot stones on the neck and shoulder. Yoga sessions are also offered in the beautiful beachside pavilions, private or as part of a class; selections include couples’ Pilates, prenatal yoga, or weight-loss focussed workouts. 

For the sportsmen…

Hailed as the Grand Dame of Los Cabos Golf, the spectacular 27-hole Palmilla Golf Course was Jack Nicklaus’ first signature course built in Latin America. 5 sets of staggered tee boxes line the water’s edge, while 4 glistening lakes and deep shifts in elevation can create a challenge for even the most experienced of golfers! If you’re new to the sport, lessons are available with a PGA professional, while those who would prefer to stand on the side-lines can enjoy tropical drinks from the Mexican-style clubhouse. The following day, perfect your swing with 3 hard courts used in the Australian Open. The soft surface is kind on your joints, while all courts are lit with Grand Slam-type lighting for dawn ‘til dusk play.

For those that are still as smitten…

Delicately weaved into the rugged oceanfront, plush cabanas invite you to simply tuck yourselves away in complete serenity, with only the crashing of ocean waves to disturb you. The Private Cove Experience lets loved ones cosy up on a floating daybed, with a butler on hand to serve lunch as and when you wish, delivered directly to your secluded spot. The whitewashed walls and stunning bell tower of the Chapel is undeniably romantic, and an idyllic destination for renewing your vows and affirming your love; the One&Only wedding coordinator will be thrilled to help you with tiny details like ceremony candles and floral décor, to the astounding luxuries of horse-drawn carriages and personalised wedding menus.
