One & Only Palmilla Introduces New Luxury Villa

In Los Cabos, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Upscale travelers now have a big decision to make when staying at the highly esteemed One & Only Palmilla in Los Cabos. The five-star resort recently introduced Villa One onto its property, another ultra-lavish villa that will join the ranks with the resort’s already most extravagant accommodation and highly popular Villa Cortez.

“This incredible villa will be perfect for families or friends travelling together who want the ultimate in ultra-luxury accommodation and it also offers perfect seclusion for those seeking absolute privacy,” says Peter Bowling, Managing Director at One & Only Palmilla.

Like the vastly popular Villa Cortez, Villa One will hold nothing back, offering guests a completely tailored experience. Before even arriving to the resort, guests of the villa are able to have dining reservations set, airport pickups arranged, adventures scheduled and all preferences noted, leaving nothing to do upon arrival but relax. In fact, service is so personalized guests can choose customized music playlists and decide what the pantry does and doesn’t get stocked with. In other words, guests can have it their way, any way.

The four-bedroom villa is spread out over 14,000 indoor- and outdoor-square-feet, complete with its own private entrance. Along with a modern decor scheme of natural Mexican materials, glass plays a huge part in this expansive villa. Thirty-foot-wide glass doors in the great room open up to the breathtaking outdoors and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors can be found throughout the entire villa, so you’re never without a view.

Set among private gardens, the private villa’s upper terrace lead lucky guests out to the 48 x 13-foot infinity-edge pool that’s complemented by glass walls, inviting loungers, a palapa and a day bed. A large fire pit, private spa treatment room and a private screening room await on the lower terrace.

Like the rest of Villa One, the accommodations lack nothing. The 870-square-foot master suite is complete with a king-sized bed, large walk-in closet, steam shower and a large, free-standing bath. The most notable and mesmerizing feature of this room, however, is the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that form two sides of the villa and envelope you into the outdoors. The remaining rooms include: a 426 square-foot bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, a king-sized bed and sun deck; a 390 square-foot third bedroom with two queen beds and a private patio; and a bunk-bed suite for kids. An additional Butler Suite is primely located on-site with its own separate entrance as well.


Lounge beachside in a private cabana while enjoying sunset margaritas and Mexican canapés, both of which are delivered daily by the butler. A dedicated chef and culinary team is available to villa guests to whip up anything desired, along with priority reservations at the resort’s world-renowned restaurants and an inclusive full bar selection. To work it all off, access to a dedicated personal trainer is available who can lead guests through a beach workout, yoga, boot camp or at the new fitness centre. Guests also have the luxury of a private spa treatment room at the villa, complete with their very own spa therapist. Indulge in a variety of massages, body treatments, bathing rituals and beauty treatments.


For the cherry on top of this decadent Baja sundae, the villa also has a private screening room, complimentary laundry, VIP golf treatment including private lessons and priority tee times, and the choice between a complimentary private art walk or yacht cruise.

Villa rates start from $12,500 per night.
