One&Only Palmilla

Legendary Mexican Retreat in Los Cabos, Baja California

Perched upon the dramatic coastline of the Sea of Cortez, One&Only Palmilla is the ultimate private resort in Baja California, immersed in Mexican charm, surrounded by blue and perfect waves!

Where the teeming waters meet the enchanting desert and sun-kissed mountains, you will find thrilling adventure or blissful relaxation. Let your personal butler take care of the arrangements and surrender to the elements, savouring the authentic flavours of Mexico in every detail.

The Resort

One&Only Palmilla is located among the stunning natural geography of the Baja Peninsula facing the Sea of Cortez. Set alongside one of the few swimmable beaches in the region, the resort offers the most stunning views of the extraordinary natural landscape and coastline of Los Cabos.

Sink into the eternal rhythm of breaking waves and light sea breezes, the Sea of Cortez is your constant, mesmerising vista. Lounge on your terrace and take a dip in your own Jacuzzi or pool then retreat into the rich comfort of your hacienda-style space.

Waves at One&Only Palmilla

The Baja California coastline is world-renown for exceptional surf spots! With warm clear waters, diverse breaks, year-round surfing and friendly dolphins and whales frolicking just offshore, there’s no better place to go on a trip!

Summer (May-Oct) is consistent with long-distance, clean S-SW swell and deep tropical storms spinning off the Mexican coast providing great waves in the Sea of Cortez. In winter, major NW swells hit the west coast.

Whether you are a first-time surfer willing to challenge yourself in this sport or an experienced surfer looking to score epic waves, the professional surf team on-site will take you to the perfect location based on your requirements and needs!

I run surf coaching trips to perfect, uncrowded waves and I relied on the AWAVE team to deliver for my clients a month long boat trip to the Maldives. We had great waves on an absolutley 5* boat called North Seven which I REALLY recommend you enquire about.

I was dubious at first as a few boats were changed, in for repair but James assured me correctly this was a usual thing and they would endevour to find us the very best replacement (which they did). North Seven was so new we were the third guests but the crew were super experienced and could not have given us a better service. Captain Usmaan, the Chef great food, Hasan and Azim our surf boat operators could not have worked any harder and always had a smile even after the 50th request to speed us to the line up or spend four hours cruising looking or waves.

AWAVE team were always on hand to answer any fears and smooth out any worries. The payment system using Revolut was super easy.

We did have a few hiccups with the local airlines which was resolved and partly our fault (as for a month trip we took alot of surfboards and in some cases were over weight).

Take the fear out of booking and especially group bookings by using the AWAVE team. Justin West Coaching recommended.

These guys are the BEST! Massively knowledgeable, fun and absolute shredders. I approached them asking for a UK winter getaway somewhere in the Indian Ocean and they suggested the perfect place, awesome setup with the beach a short stroll from my accommodation with 3 sick waves breaking over reefs to chose from. Real life doesn’t get much better than this. I also popped my barrel cherry in a big way on this trip so it was a truely memorable one. James also somehow wangled a boat charter to some super remote islands where we scored epic surf and landed some massive fish. James’ broken Indonesian language skills will get you places. Thanks again guys you rock.

James was very helpful and always there to answer all the questions. I will definitely book again with him!

James is a super knowledgeable surfer with a great ability to match any trip requirements to the right locations. He has arranged several trips for me and my friends in France, Morocco and more recently Indonesia. Awave have a great knowledge of all the surf spots and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is all set up. With limited time to do this myself their service was invaluable.

Giuliana has been amazing to work with!! She was always available and answered all my questions. Thank you for all your help! We can't wait for our trip!

Fantastic service from start to finish from James and his team. After having several ‘self organised’ trips to Asia end with only a handful of good surf days I decided this time to use Awave in hope of maximising my valuable holiday time. James custom built a trip for me and my friends tailored for our abilities and requirements. There were no days wasted waiting for transfers as he organised it all from the airport to the beach. We scored pretty much every day whilst also having a surf trip that had that ‘off the beaten track’ feel we wanted. To round it off there was also a secret boat trip in the end where we surfed an awesome spot just us...Unforgettable. Will be using again.

Fantastic service and support from Giulia during our trip. During a self organised trip to Maldives, we ended up in a sketchy situation: the hotel was far from the described plus the owner 'forgot' to mention that the whole island was in lockdown for a covid emergency. I quickly realized that I would need support and the best in class. That's when I decided to use Awave! Giulia answered reactively and custom built several solutions for me and my girlfriend, based on what feasible, our budget and surfing preferences!! No other words needed. Thanks Giulia, we'll be in touch again!

My friends and I recently went on a trip to the Maldives. We booked a week on the Hudhuranfushi resort which was amazing! The staff was very welcoming, flawless facilities and tasty food. One day our surf guide Ryan caught a fish and made some sashimi on the spot! I think that was pretty thoughtful! Awave agency really made sure all our needs where met as we where a big group of friends. A very personal approach and clear communication. Epic surf, great service, memories of a lifetime! I highly recommend traveling with Awave!

I had just arrived in Bali when the whole of Indonesia went into lockdown again. Despite travel restrictions such as mandatory vaccination and PCR tests, flight cancellations and even the fast ferries to the Mentawis being cancelled, Giulia tried everything to get me there. It was a hell of a trip to get there but totally worth it.

I scored pristine and empty Mentawis. The resort was affordable yet very luxurious given the remoteness. And with their great surf guide and their boat, I scored amazing empty waves!
