An updated take on old-world Mexican décor combined with first-class service and amenities makes this one of Cabo’s most luxurious resorts. And it’s also one of the most iconic, originally built as a private home by Don Abelardo Rodríguez, the son of Mexico’s former president. In its original incarnation as a hotel, Palmilla hosted guests like John Wayne. These days, it still attracts Hollywood elite. Celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten heads up two of the restaurants: Seared, which serves Kobe and Wagyu beef, and Suviche, which specializes in sushi and ceviche. In the guest rooms, look for deep soaking tubs, hand-woven artisanal fabrics, private balconies with capacious daybeds, and floor-to-ceiling windows facing the Sea of Cortez. The hotel does romance well: Concierges have been known to arrange moonlit guitar serenades on private sandy coves. It’s great for families, too: A meandering river connects the kids’ pool to an infinity pool where Mom and Dad can gaze at the turquoise sea. The resort also has direct access to Playa Palmilla, one of Cabo’s few swimming beaches. But it’s the personal attention (including butler service) given to each guest that makes this a favorite. It’s no surprise that the One & Only Palmilla regularly appears near the top of T+L’s list of World’s Best Hotels.
