Season 3 of Narcos was released last week and all of you who watched it are familiar with the life of Pablo Escobar. Now, thanks to an art dealer Lio Lamca who made it possible, one of Pablo’s mansions is turned into an eco-friendly hotel you can stay at- Casa Malca.
This five-star hotel is located in Tulum, Mexico and has 35 rooms available for rent. Casa Malca was originally built in the 80s and Lio started renovating it in 2012. Now, it’s filled with contemporary art, Persian rugs, an underground steam room, pool and rooftop deck.
The white walls and concrete floors are decorated thanks to the work of many contemporary artists. Also, the art is changed from place to place, so each time you visit, you’ll have a unique experience. Not to forget the 180 meter stretch of private white sand beach. You can chill on the sand surrounded by hammocks, palms and wooden cabanas.
On the ground floor of this eco-friendly hotel, you’ll find a black and white bar with a view of a tropical landscape. The restaurant offers fresh ingredients and locally sourced food. Besides the hotel, you’ll find two buildings with suites decorated in red curtains, timber staircases, and full height glass doors. As for the location itself, Tulum is right next to Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula. This place is now becoming a very popular retreat.
