Its white stucco walls and red-tile roofs are set among stunning gardens and fountains with swaying palms that lead down to a dramatic shoreline.
The guest rooms and suites are exquisitely furnished with handcrafted Mexican accents and have either a patio or balcony, all with breathtaking views of the ocean. They also offer a 24-hour butler service to see to your every need and the list of complimentary room amenities is nothing short of heaven. Despite having 174 rooms, the resort is spread out enough that guests feel a sense of seclusion and privacy.
The colourfully decorated outdoor lounge area offers an ideal place to relax at sunset and the award winning spa features 13 private treatment villas providing the perfect indoor/outdoor setting for guests to enjoy a spa regime in complete tranquillity. The restaurants are spectacular with delicious food, outstanding service and memorable views.
If you're looking for adventure, the Sea of Cortez is best explored on the resort's 43-foot Palmilla yacht, or head out on specialist whale watching excursions (November-April) or deep-sea game fishing trips. On land it is possible to enjoy championship golf, 4x4 excursions into the desert, horse-riding, authentic cooking sessions at mountain ranches or aerial tours of the dramatic coastline.
