Art. Rooftop. Bar. Beds. Tulum.

Today we bring word of a faraway land where the hats are made of straw, the sand is always white and hammocks sway on private beaches where the—

Yeah.

Tulum.

Good guess.

Specifically, Casa Malca: a beachfront villa filled with art, beds, pools, floors that don’t have ceilings and everything else you want to be around. It’s glorious, and it’s open now.

About that art.
It’s a big deal here. As is the beach, the sun, the being somewhere heavenly... But that first one—it’s because the place comes to us from NYC gallerist and all-around art-scene-giant Lio Malca. That Kaws sculpture, abundance of amazing paintings and Keith Haring–inspired wallpaper all make so much sense now.

About those beds.
There are 35 rooms here. You might choose to post up in a beachfront suite where a hammock swings on a private terrace. Or if one terrace doesn’t sound sufficient, there’s the dual-terraced rooftop suite: one overlooking the ocean and the other that lush Mexican jungle.

About those pools.
There are three of them, scattered about the villa. You’ll want to hit them all.

About that roof.
Also up there: the 360-degree-view bar, where you’ll sit, margarita in hand, watching the sun set over the ocean.

Or whatever’s going on in the Mexican jungle.
