    Rooms 42 /The Original Lio Malca

    Tulum is a place of myth and mystery, of Mayan temples, and majestic cliffs. Now, on its most exclusive and quiet southern end, comes Casa Malca. Set along a private beach, perhaps the widest of the endless white sand beaches in this corner of the Yucatan peninsula, the 42-room resort marries three spiritually inspiring elements — world-class contemporary art, nature, and laid-back luxury. 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. For Casa Malca, which is by far the largest house on the Tulum beach, he brings artwork worthy of a museum. But Casa Malca is a work of art itself, set in a natural wonderland surrounded by a lush jungle and including three welcoming pools and locally influenced international cuisine. And to best showcase it, there is a staircase to the roof, which affords guests access to a bar, 360-degree views, and the best spot in Tulum to take in the sunset.

    Rooms & Suites

    The 42 rooms and suites at Casa Malca, all just steps from the widest beach in Tulum, celebrate the best of contemporary art and inspired design. Here, luxury abounds with Egyptian cotton linens, rainfall showers, locally made artisanal products, and bold colors that embrace the creative spirit that flows through the property. Guests are welcome to enjoy some of the original pieces of Malca’s private collection, including original contemporary artworks, sculptures, photography, and new media works.

    INTERIOR DESIGN

    It is fitting that a hotel created by a man who specialized in works by Keith Haring should present interior spaces that exhibit a bold artistic flare. Yet within Casa Malca, one also discovers an environment that is as comfortable as it is inspiring.

    ARCHITECTURE

    As part of the bold renovation at Casa Malca, the architects achieved the difficult task of creating a single space worthy of two vastly different worlds – one that showcases great art yet also emits the relaxed, casual feel befitting a property set between the ocean and a lush jungle.

    LIO MALCA

    Since his emergence in the New York art world in the early 1990s, Lio Malca has specialized in works by contemporary masters, such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, while collaborating and assisting on major worldwide retrospectives at the Brooklyn Museum NY, Beyler Foundation Basel, Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, and other top venues. Today Malca is celebrated for recognizing the talent of many top contemporary artists at a very early stage of their careers, Vik Muniz among them. At Casa Malca he proudly showcases a carefully selected roster of Modern and Contemporary Masters, displaying a socially progressive and visually commanding international collection.
