In 2013, renowned art collector Lio Malca purchased Casa Malca and gave it a complete redesign. The aesthetic at the newly renovated 35-room property is at once grand and modern, warm and rustic. Contemporary art is prominently displayed throughout. (No surprise, given Malca’s penchant for modern masters.) Think: paintings by Kenny Scharf and giant fiberglass ants by Rafael Gomez Barros. Spacious guest rooms boast polished concrete floors, sustainably-stylish linens and floor-to-ceiling windows and with spectacular views of the beach or garden.
Who wouldn’t love to take a trip to Mexico with the Hannah Jeter, Nina Agdal, Robyn Lawley, Kate Bock and Mia Kang? The SI Swimmsuit crew was lucky enough to travel to the beautiful country to shoot for this year’s magazine—and did we mention that we got to stay at an amazing hotel while we were there?
Casa Malca is a picturesque estate located on a beautiful beachfront on the Caribbean ocean. With the perfect mixture of modernity and historic elements, Casa Malca truly is the best of both worlds. The contemporary hotel is a converted house owned by New York City art gallerist Lio Malca. The house has 11 total rooms and 30 additional rooms on the grounds, each decorated with modern works of art.
The house itself was built from native materials by local craftsmen, and that eco-friendly feel resonates throughout the hotel. From the food, to the linens, Casa Malca strives not only to be a unique getaway, but to be environmentally conscious as well.
After you’ve fallen in love with Casa Malca’s rustic charm, you can explore all that Mexico has to offer. The SI Swimsuit crew visited Tulum and Coba Archaeological Site in Quintana Roo, and Valladolid in Yucatan to experience the authentic and rich culture of Mexico. From pyramids to jungles and everything in between, you can immerse yourself in all of the country's breathtaking attractions.
After exploring the wonders of Mexico, there is no better place to return to than Casa Malca. The rare combination of unmatched luxury and ultimate privacy in an intimate seaside setting will give you the experience of a lifetime!
Discovered in 2003 after sitting empty for a decade, Casa Malca was seemingly preserved in time, untouched by the seasons.
Beautiful and picturesque, the house invites ocean breezes and the sound of lapping waves.
Immerse into a world of art while being pampered by our dedicated staff as you enjoy the glorious Sun, bathing in beautiful crystal clear waters and walking on amazing white sand beaches. Relax on our roof top deck where you can enjoy a sunset overlooking the jungle and later in the night gaze into the star filled sky.

Casa Malca, Tulum
Considered one of the world’s best green hotels, Casa Malca in Tulum is the perfect place to escape from the world along Mexico’s glorious Caribbean coastline. With its inception in 2014, the hotel quickly established itself as one of the best new green hotels, offering both an ecological and distinctly artsy experience. Casa Malca’s buildings were constructed by local craftsman with sustainable materials like organic, pesticide-free cotton, and there is a focus on serving only homegrown vegetables and local produce in their on-site restaurant.
