One&Only Palmilla is regularly rated by travel magazines as the best resort in México, and it's easy to see why. The commitment to service is unmatched in the region, as evidenced by the 3:1 staff-to-guest ratio, and the some five dozen gardeners working constantly to sculpt the lush and luxuriant grounds. The resort has been around since the 1950s, when it was founded by pioneering Los Cabos developer Rod Rodriguez, and it has remained a benchmark area property through several expansions and upgrades. Most notably upon receiving the One&Only imprimatur in 2004. In addition to its excellent accommodations and amenities – private butlers are standard – the resort hosts several excellent restaurants, including SEARED steakhouse from celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Upgrades and renovations in recent years include a 22,000 square foot spa, fitness and beauty facility, with Barber&Blade for men, and manicures and pedicures in a studio designed by famed French podiatrist Bastien Gonzalez. Romantic activities for couples are another specialty, with options that range from private yacht whale watching adventures to spa date couples' treatments and private dining experiences.
