Looking for a quick get away to a hot spot to beat the winter blues? For this LA girl, it’s just a hop, skip and a 2 hour nonstop to Cabo San Lucas! Even when you live in the land of eternal sunshine and luke warm winters, the beaches in So Cal are too cold to enjoy in the winter (cue the playing of tiny violins). We Southern Californians freak when the weather drops below 50 degrees, and God forbid we get precipitation, driving apoplexy ensues!
No need to go to the ends of the earth, just to the tip of Baha, to the closet toasty spot I know and love! Twenty minutes north of Cabo lies the more laid back town of San Jose del Cabo, home of all the beautiful, 5 star, luxury hotels on the Baha peninsula- a celebrity hideout, and a place where the posh come to get pampered!
The end all be all, of course, is to own a place or be a lucky guest, at the uber lux, ultra private, El Dorado Golf & Beach Club. But, if a second home isn’t your style (too many places to go & too much to see!), then one of the Kings of the coast is the exclusive, One and Only Palmilla, part of the One & Only Resorts group.
From the minute you step foot onto this enchanting property, the warm welcome and devoted hospitality envelope you like a hug. You’re immediately treated with cold, lavender scented, hand towels and your choice of delicious, house made, fruit popsicles. In-room check-in makes settling in hassle free, as does your in-room, complimentary, bottle of tequila and accouterments!
Astounding ocean views from every room, world class shopping, magical onsite, historic chapel. A blissful spa sanctuary, and amazing culinary indulgences with long time One & Only partner and Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten round out your unrivaled experience.
The service here feels so indulgent, it’s all the complimentary extras that make you feel like your every wish is anticipated, with cold, scented hand towels, delicious ice slushies, bottled ice water, baseball caps, and even a sunglasses cleaning service, and that’s just as you lay by the pool while your butler unpacks for you!
With so many activities you’ll wish you stayed longer: A 27 hole Jack Nicholas golf course, water sports, horseback riding on the sand, ATV’s, whale watching and one of the only swimmable beaches on the Sea of Cortez.
“It’s all in the details”, as they say, and the Palmilla has that in spades! Wishing you warmth wherever you wander! xoxo Eva
