Long known as one of the world’s most exclusive ultra-luxury resorts, the iconic One&Only Palmilla resort will re-open on 20 April 2015 and will introduce the most comprehensive integrated spa, beauty, men’s grooming and fitness centre in the Baja region. The new centre includes the brand new beauty salon, OBO by Jonathan & George, as well as Barber & Blade, the new men’s grooming and shave studio, plus a completely new state-of-the-art Technogym fitness centre with a range of personal training, fitness and wellness programmes. One&Only Spa also re-opens with an all-new menu, expanded retail experience and fresh juice bar. The complete renovation of spaces and additional offerings provide what today’s guests are seeking in an ultra-luxury resort and underscores One&Only’sdedication to wellness which is a key focus of the brand and particularly of One&Only Palmilla.
“We are so thrilled to be welcoming guests back to One&Only Palmilla and introducing our completely new One&Only Spa and Fitness Centre,” said Peter Bowling, Managing Director, One&Only Palmilla. “We are introducing a number of new offerings which have been in the works for some time now, including our new OBO beauty salon and men’s grooming studio, Barber & Blade. Guests will discover a completely new spa plus fitness centre that will allow guests to focus on wellness, as well as indulgence. Wellbeing has always been an important element of the One&Only Palmilla offering and I am looking forward to having our guests discover all of our new offerings and new facilities.”
The 22,000-square-foot spa and fitness centre offers extensive space–both indoor, and outdoor with ocean views and lush landscaping which sets the perfect scene for calm and seclusion. Signature treatments are provided within 13 private treatment villas, each set within its own secluded landscaped courtyard, many complete with plunge pool, rain showers and swinging day beds. A tranquil lunch in the spa’s Yoga Garden is another delight for visitors as is the new fresh juice bar.
The latest innovation at One&Only Palmilla is the OBO Salon by Jonathan & George. One&Only created this brand-new resort salon concept in collaboration with Beverly Hills celebrity stylists Jonathan Antin and Amanda George. OBO caters to those who want to “unplug without being undone” by offering a range of signature blow-drys and wedding hair, hair styles, nail services and beauty treatments which are perfect for the needs and tempo of those on a tropical beach vacation. For those guests who would prefer to arrive and get beautified at the resort rather than before they travel, the salon offers special packages, such as spray tans, nails and hair treatments, to save time. Guests may drop-in for a quick shampoo and blowout, pre-dinner touch up or choose to make a formal appointment for something more elaborate. Brides and wedding parties will find everything they need at OBO, including make-up and the perfect natural tan tailored for just the right amount of pre-wedding glow. The OBO Look Book offers inspiration for those looking for a fun, new look, with a series of styles designed to reflect the personality of each of the world’s One&Only resorts, like the Cape Town Classic or Ocean Club Bounce. The Salon will offer a curated selection of the very best in retail hair products sourced from the US and Europe, with a small bespoke collection from California.
“I can’t think of a better partner than One&Only for our first salon outside of Beverly Hills,” commented Amanda George. “When we discovered that many of our clients were also frequenting One&Only Palmilla, we knew it was a perfect match. I am thrilled we can offer exactly what our clients and the resort’s guests are looking for while on holiday.”
Not to forget the men, Barber&Blade is also being introduced as One&Only Palmilla’s exclusive new men’s grooming and shave studio. A dedicated team of grooming experts will offer male guests the chance to unwind and indulge in a series of shaving and barber shop treatments, as well as pampering for the face and body. This traditional experience will combine authenticity with cutting edge advancements in a space that was purposefully designed. Barber & Blade will feature Murdock of London products.
