The property that was once owned by the infamous Colombian narcotic Pablo Escobar has been turned into a luxury accommodation filled with artwork. The villa is located on the beach in Tulum, Mexico and now Cala Malca has been renovated and converted into a hotel owned by the New York company Lio Malca that deals with the trade of artwork.
After Escobar left it, the property remained abandoned, and since 2012 it has been gradually renovated and opened in 2015 as a five star hotel.
The villa has nine rooms, and is located one step from the beach with white sand. The interior is even more interesting, and the attention from the door is immediately attracted by Persian carpets.
In the lobby are paintings, sculptures and furniture of some of the most appreciated artists and designers, and it is interesting that the arrangement of artwork in the hotel is often changed so that guests can enjoy different works.
The spiral staircase leads to the roof, and on the roof there is a bar where various events are organized, while the tower offers a view of the tropical landscape. The glass doors share a house from the beach, and if guests do not like swimming in the sea, there is a huge swimming pool.
Tulum is otherwise located on the Caribbean coast of the Mexican peninsula of Yucatan. This area has been in the last years in the trend and more and more hotels are being built.
