Hospitality Like No Other

In the extreme of Baja California, where the sea meets with the desert, with the mountains, and where the waters of the Pacific find the Sea of Cortez, One & Only Palmilla is one of the few places that offers to their visitors beaches with spectacular sights of gray whales majestically emerging only a few meters away from the coast.

In February of 2004 it was finally reopened, after a process of restructuring and expansion, emerging like one of the most important luxury resorts of the world, and like the latest Kerzner International property.
