Tulum for the Art Lover at Casa Malca

In Playa del Carmen & Tulum, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Tulum is known for its picturesque views, quiet beaches and bohemian-style. And like Tulum, Casa Malca, the recently renovated beachfront hotel, exudes its own flair of upscale creativity and is bursting with artistic inspiration.

The property was discovered in 2003 by Lio Malca and opened as a beachfront hotel in 2014. It originally opened with just nine suites that make up The House, which can now be rented out for a personal and private experience. An additional 26 rooms have since been added and are located around the rest of the property that’s surrounded by jungle foliage.

Art-lovers and creative souls will find joy throughout the boutique hotel located in the quiet beach town. Vibrant hues and funky patterns accent this sophisticated hotel whose interiors look like they jumped from the pages of a contemporary interior design book. The rooms, though accented with bright colors, maintain a crisp and airy feel and come complete with an ocean or garden view and its own unique style. While Casa Malca has a unique flair for decor, it’s not the only aspect that make this an art aficionado’s haven. Malca himself has been collecting quality art pieces for 25 years and uses pieces from his personal collection to decorate the walls of the hotel and rooms.


As one would expect in a hotel with so much personality, the food offerings are just as bright and enticing. The hotel maintains a fresh and healthy theme at its two beachfront restaurants, Philosophy and Ambrosia along with a large rooftop bar.
