If you head to the southeast tip of Baja California Sur in Mexico, you’ll find a luxury oasis in the form of the One&Only Palmilla. This sprawling property was built in 1956 and from the beginning has attracted an A-list roster of guests. Today it counts Jennifer Aniston and Rihanna among its frequent-stay fanclub. Upon arrival in Palmilla paradise, you’re met with palm trees and a dreamy ocean view.
Taking in the beachy vistas from your room is ideal, and we can think of no better way to relax into honeymoon mode than in a suite with your own private infinity-edge pool and Jacuzzi. Venture out to lounge poolside at the ocean-view adults-only pool or head to the secluded beach. To futher fuel your state of Zen, step into the tranquil One&Only Spa for a couples massage. For something different, we recommend experiencing the resort’s Temazcal, in which steam, medicinal herbs and music are used to detoxify and purify body and mind.
After working up an appetite with all that relaxing, check out Palmilla’s five restos, which will delight your inner gourmet. For the ultimate romantic dinner we recommend Agua By Larbi, where you can dine al fresco under the moonlight in a private oceanfront booth.—Kimberly Aglipay
