Simply put, Palmilla is the grand dame of Los Cabos. Located just four miles from San José del Cabo and overlooking the most beautiful bay in the area, the Palmilla resort provides its residents and guests with elegance, privacy, amenities and luxury that no other community offers. From the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course to the exquisite One&Only Palmilla, and from the lavish Mandara Spa to the miles of pristine swimming beaches, Palmilla is in a league of its own.

The ultimate resort community, Palmilla was one of the first full-scale master-planned developments to break ground in Los Cabos, and upon its completion, will feature more than 1,000 high-end properties plus all the amenities today's luxury traveler desires.

In 1953, the famed fighter pilot and aviator, Rod Rodriguez purchased 400 acres and built the first resort in Los Cabos; The Palmilla Hotel. Opened in 1957, the Palmilla quickly became the "in" spot for Hollywood adventureers like Dezi Arnaz, John Wayne, Bing Crosby and Phil Harris. In 1991, Don Koll led the Palmilla Resort as it set the standard for high-end resort living in Baja. The Palmilla Resort was the first community to push the luxury development envelope by building the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and by designing  and building a collection of the most luxurious real estate in Los Cabos.
