Featuring world-class contemporary art, nature, and laid-back luxury, Casa Malca is a boutique hotel located on an unspoiled -private- white sand beach on the southern end of Tulum, on the edge of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. The driving force behind the property, Lio Malca, is a lion in the art world, having launched retrospectives at New York's Whitney Museum and other top venues.
Rooms come with original pieces of Malca’s private collection, including original contemporary artworks, sculptures, photography, and new media works. Room facilities include air conditioning, Egyptian cotton linens, rainfall showers, and locally made artisanal products. Terraces have views of the gardens or the Caribbean.
Wood planks lend texture to the walls inside the restaurant, which serves local fare. Bold artwork, graphic rugs, and colorful chair upholstery enliven the space. There is also a bar with Keith Haring print walls, and a rooftop with 360-degree views. Free cooked-to-order breakfast.
Outside, relax in on of the 3 outdoor pools. Free bicycles. 24-hour front desk.
