If it’s authentic Mexican luxury you seek, One&Only Palmilla delivers. A hideaway for ultra-private travelers, the hotel sits on an oceanfront bluff far (but not too far) from the craziness of downtown Cabo San Lucas. Family-friendly, but quiet, One&Only has a 27-hole golf course, a lovely spa with locally inspired wellness rituals, and superb restaurants, including chef Jean-George Vongerichten’s Seared, focusing on fresh fare straight from the hotel’s herb garden and the Sea of Cortez. And while there’s no bad place to stay, Villa One takes the cake. Upon entering Villa One’s dramatic, sliding glass doors, you know you’ve entered a unique Mexican hideaway. At 14,962 sq ft, the modern-style villa is one of the largest suites in the region. Within, it has four bedrooms, a movie theater and a terrace with a fire pit. Have your butler (available 24/7) deliver you a fresh margarita (or two) on the palapa hanging by your glass-walled infinity pool, and you might never leave your villa, or maybe even Los Cabos.
