Set along a private beach, Casa Malca blends contemporary art and amazing views on the widest white sand beach in Tulum, Mexico.
The resort has 35 rooms decked out with contemporary art while still giving a vibe of natural, laid back luxury right in the heart of the pristine beach and lush green jungle.
The mastermind behind Casa Malca is Lio Malca, an artist and collector who has launched retrospectives at New York’s Whitney Museum. Lio Malca certainly brings museum quality art to the hotel.
