THE ONE AND ONLY: Now that’s a birthday party — and quite an invitation. A pack of friends with plenty of star power flew TGA — that’s Travolta Global Airways — down to Los Cabos, Mexico, over the weekend for a surprise “Jet Fete” in celebration of John Travolta’s 50th birthday, thrown in his honor by his wife Kelly Preston, Donna Dixon and Dan Aykroyd, Colleen Camp and Sol Kerzner.
The jet-mad Travolta troupe — including Sharon Stone, Robin Wright Penn and Sean Penn, Sylvester Stallone, Meg Ryan, Mike and Irina Medavoy, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith, Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks, Scarlett Johansson, Robin Williams, Samuel Jackson and Tom Cruise — spent the tropical weekend at the superluxe One & Only Pamilla, a famous Hollywood hideaway, which recently underwent a major renovation. The gang golfed, played tennis, practiced yoga, enjoyed the spa and toasted their hosts at a Mexican fiesta, where waitresses dressed up as stewardesses in keeping with the weekend’s aviation theme.

But while Travolta’s high-profile guests had the run of the place, their fun had its limits: No cameras allowed, as the invitation made clear.
