For the merriest and brightest way to celebrate this year’s festive season of joy, book a stay at One&Only Palmilla. The luxury resort’s jolly fun ranges from elegant holiday dinners to an exciting New Year’s Eve bash and more.

Throughout the month of December, a giant gingerbread house will be on display full of bright gumdrops, candy canes and snowcapped icing. On Dec. 21 & 28, browse the outdoor One&Only Art Market for old and new artworks to find your next favorite piece to take home or head to Breeze for México Mágico, a specialty themed dining event with live music and authentic flavors.

Guests can take part in The Flavours of Baja, a culinary adventure hosted by Executive Chef Sandro Falbo on Dec. 22, 23, 29 & 30. Taking place at the Herb Garden, local faves like chocolate clams and spiny lobster will be paired with a sommelier-curated wine selection and unique cocktails. For tequila fans, a Clase Azul Tequila Tasting will offer two seatings on Dec. 23, 28 & 29. Sip and savor local tequila along with One&Only Palmilla’s handcrafted Joven blend from Clase Azul. Guests will be able to purchase a numbered collector’s edition decanter of the blend.
