White beaches, azure water, lush jungle and the ruins of Maya temples: Mexico’s Tulum is an almost surreal destination. This beauty perfectly matches the Casa Malca, an extraordinary place where New York’s galerist Lio Malca combines his passion for art and hotel business.
In the 42 rooms and suites of his casa, Malca presents a carefully chosen selection of international art that could hang in any contemporary museum. And that in a setting that is totally unlike a museum and marked by sustainable and rustic architecture and a colorful interior design with strong local influence.
The magic of the place can best be enjoyed in the evening on the rooftop bar with a 360 degree view of beach, water and jungle. Together with a tropical drink, sundowners promise an unforgettable memory.
Fans of the Netflix series “Narcos” beware: the stately mansion was formerly owned by the notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar.
