THE ULTIMATE IN CUSTOMIZABLE LUXURY DEBUTING AT THE ONE&ONLY PALMILLA
By Paulina Berkovich
Imagine watching Cabo’s breathtaking sunset with margaritas and Mexican canapés after a session in the private spa treatment room while a dedicated culinary team prepares dinner to your exact specifications. All of this and more awaits guests at the newly opened Villa One, the newest luxury villa at One&Only Palmilla Resort that debuted in December 2015.
The exceptional experience begins right at the airport, where guests will be welcomed and escorted directly to the 14,000-foot, four-bedroom villa. The spacious master suite, at 870 square feet, offers a king-sized bed and walk-in closet. Its floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors offer a gorgeous view of the surrounding natural beauty, the palm trees and the Sea of Cortez. A secluded deck outside the second bedroom is perfect for sun-bathing, and the third bedroom also offers a private patio. Amenities include a panoramic infinity-edge pool and a lounging terrace with a fire pit. By day, guests can use binoculars for spotting whales, and a telescope is available for stargazing by night.
One&Only Palmilla has dining options for every taste and occasion, some of them created by Michelin-starred chefs and many of them showcasing local seasonal foods. The resort already offers some of Mexico’s finest restaurants, ranging from Seared, which features exceptional steak and seafood dinners, to Breeze, a casual outdoor spot with breakfast, fresh salads and other delicacies. The bars offer a selection of refreshing tropical beverages, with cozy seating and music to set the mood, and the Herb Garden, with its collection of indigenous chiles, hosts cooking demonstrations and intimate private gatherings of up to 12 people. Priority reservations can be made for guests at any location on the resort, but a private poolside breakfast or family-style dinner can also be arranged at the Villa upon request.
One&Only Palmilla’s spa pampers its guests with services that put a Mexican twist on ancient Asian holistic philosophies, and guests at Villa One are offered priority access to any treatment. But guests can treat themselves in the privacy of the villa with a wide variety of massages and beauty treatments. In addition, a dedicated personal trainer is available for one hour each day to arrange private workouts in the state-of-the-art fitness center or even on the beach. For guests looking for outdoor adventures, the resort offers not only tennis and basketball courts and a 27-hole golf course but also water sports like surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkeling. Guests that stay four nights or more receive a complimentary yacht cruise or a private art walk.
For those looking to relax in their own private space, Villa One has also perfected in-home entertainment. There is a surround audio sound system both indoors and outdoors, with playlists for any musical tastes, as well as a curved satellite TV and access to an endless movie library.
Travelers can treat themselves daily with freshly delivered fruit, exclusive snacks, or espresso and tea, all complimentary. Better still, Villa One offers a pillow menu and aromatherapy turndown menu. For travelers with families, children will not be disappointed by the milk and cookies. The Villa’s fourth bedroom has a bunkbed perfect for young travelers, and a Kids Club is available for guests age four to 11.
The attentive staff will make sure that each and every detail is arranged to a guest’s specifications, making a vacation in Villa One a customizable dream destination. Rates start at $12,500 per night. Whether it’s a special event or a private getaway, a stay at Villa One is the most luxurious way to experience the wonders at One&Only Palmilla Resort.
