Casa Malca, Mexico
Hotel Casa Malca in Mexico brings art, nature, and laid-back luxury to the astonishing white sand beaches in Tulum. Reported to be drug baron Pablo Escobar’s former hideaway, Casa Malca is now a cool, luxurious, beachfront boutique hotel filled with intriguing contemporary artworks.
Casa Malca’s airy rooms, meanwhile, present an eclectic mix of colour, contour, and luxury, while floor-to-ceiling windows open onto a breath-taking view of the beach or gaze upon organic gardens. Public spaces incorporate Mayan themes, natural wood, and large windows for maximum sun.
The menu in the hotel restaurants Philosophy and Ambrosia feature local ingredients and knowledge handed down from generation to generation in Mexico, combined with contemporary European cooking techniques.
Though intimate, the newly renovated resort, with three welcoming swimming pools, offers the most spacious rooms in Tulum. A large beachfront villa perched above the sand, the property utilizes eco-friendly construction that creates a rustic feel.
