Villa del Palmar makes resort rankings


LORETO, Baja California Sur, Mexico (September 24, 2019) – Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa at The Islands of Loreto has been named a Top 100 Golf Resort in the inaugural rankings from GOLF Magazine.

Flanked by the rugged Sierra de La Giganta Mountains and the Sea of Cortez, Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa occupies a sprawling stretch of quiet beaches, scenic vistas, and astounding natural habitat. While the resort reflects the historic culture of Mexico, guests have access to every modern amenity and convenience—including Sabila Spa, named one of Mexico’s Best Spas by SpaFinder—as well as unparalleled personal service.

The centerpiece of this premier golf destination is TPC Danzante Bay, part of a luxury master-planned community adjacent to the coastline of Baja’s inland marine sanctuary. A Rees Jones design, the golf course offers five sets of tees, ranging between 4,916 and 7,237 yards. It features wide fairways and greens that must be carefully judged but are never unfair. Most of the entrances to the greens are open—allowing approach shots to run on safely—while the holes along the cliffs feature strategically placed collection areas to keep errant shots from taking the plunge into the blue water below.

The GOLF Magazine editorial team considered 243 resorts across North America, and then, conducted an online poll of 3,700 golfers to rate each resort based on golf experiences, accommodations, service, food, and ambience. The results are North America’s top 100 resorts. Villa del Palmar Loreto appears in the buddy trip category. The magazine’s list also includes resorts in the luxury, family, and overall excellence categories.
