One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos

A meandering river connects the kids’ pool to an infinity pool overlooking the sea. Ride horses on the beach- one of the safest in Los Cabos for swimming- then kick back in red-tiled suites with shaded daybeds, ideal for siestas.

Set on the tip of Mexico's Baja peninsula, One&Only Palmilla is luxury at its finest. First, there's the emphasis on individual service that makes this big resort feel like a boutique hotel (guests are called by name, for example). Then, there's dining—celeb chef Jean Georges Vongerichten heads up Market restaurant, which turns out tuna "ribbons"with avocado, radish-and-ginger marinade. Finally, there's romance—concierges have been known to arrange moonlit guitar serenades on private sandy coves. The 172 airy rooms (and one villa) have red-tile roofs and floor-to-ceiling windows facing the Sea of Cortes; other sleeping options include the shaded daybeds on private balconies (for a midday siesta). For families, a meandering river connects the kids' pool to an infinity pool where Mom and Dad can gaze at the turquoise sea and golden sands.

Room to Book:

Groups should splurge for a night in the Villa Cortez, the hotel's only stand-alone suite, with four bedrooms, private gym and spa, pool, stocked kitchen, and dedicated staff of 12.

Insider Tip:

The deliciously relaxing Palmilla Chocolate Signature treatment at the spa uses a blend of Mexican chocolate and aromatherapeutic oils.
