Hanging Out

Next time a client heads down to Cabo, you might want to supply them with the times for high tide, especially if they are staying at One&Only Palmilla. The resort has created a unique take on privacy and romance with the introduction of its floating beds. These beds are suspended above the surf in one of three private coves surrounded by high cliffs on the resort’s mile-long Sea of Cortez coastline. The bed is outfitted with a deluxe mattress, terrycloth sheets and plush pillows. An optional canopy is available for guests to roll out and shield themselves from the sun. Also available are netted ocean hammocks complete with oversized pillows.

To ensure further privacy and eliminate the need to leave the secluded cove for any reason, a private outdoor shower is set into the side of the stone steps that lead down the cliff to the beach.

With the use of the private cove and floating bed, One&Only Palmilla also provides a dedicated cove butler who personally escorts guests to the private beach cove and discreetly remains at their disposal via cell phone throughout the day. The butler handles any and all details and “ensures a personalized experience created exactly to discerning specifications.”

Each private beach cove is available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for $300 per day. Guests can reserve one of the three locations through their personal butler, assigned to all rooms at One&Only Palmilla.

Guests can also choose to have breakfast or lunch delivered to their personal cove from any of the resort’s restaurants at an additional charge.
