Experience Cabo the One&Only Way

In Los Cabos, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Five-star service meets a laidback summer.

Just a short flight from Phoenix, Cabo is just as easy to get to as Southern California. But California isn’t home to One&Only Palmilla and if you’re asking us, it’s the ultimate summer spot. More than just a fancy resort, it caters to those looking to have fun and experience everything the Baja has to offer.

The five-star resort, One&Only Palmilla, is set on a private peninsula with views of Palmilla Bay at every turn. Home to one of the few swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, guests can soak up every minute of summer sun with a wide assortment of water activities. Choose from kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing and more. For those looking to conquer the waves, The Art of Luxury Surfing experience is hosted by some of the world’s best surfers, complete with expert instruction on how to cruise the water like a pro. For the most luxurious experience, hop aboard the resort’s very own 90-ft. yacht for a day on the water complete with drinks, food and sightseeing.

Relax the day away at the adults-only oceanfront pool with a swim-up bar and plush loungers or climb down to the shore to find one of the secret floating beds. A second family-friendly pool is lined with palm trees and has a large Jacuzzi with stunning views of the entire bay. One&Only Palmilla is also home to two different beach experiences. One side offers a restaurant, a beach bar and calm swimmable water while the other side, despite not being swimmable, is more secluded, complete with full beach service, six cabanas, loungers and hammocks.

Golfers can tee up at the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed course that’s characterized by deep arroyos and scenic ocean views while wellness enthusiasts can get lost at the spa, complete with an authentic Temazcal, a Yoga Garden, a smoothie bar and more.

After an active day outside, refuel at one of the on-site restaurants including the Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s SEARED, an upscale steakhouse with dangling cuts of meat and one of Cabo’s best wine lists. For a fresh infusion of Mexican and Japanese flavors, Suviche serves up sushi, sashimi and ceviche while Agua by Larbi is home to authentic farm-to-table Mexican cuisine. Step into Agua’s kitchen with Chef Larbi Darouch, with the Catch Cook Cocktail class which takes guests out on the yacht to catch some big fish before returning to learn how to whip up cocktails and prepare their catch using Mexican flavors.

From romantic beachside cabanas to family-fun activities on land and water, One&Only Palmilla can treat you to any type of getaway you can imagine—Cabo tan included.
