Casa Cook Kos is the second of Thomas Cook’s new breed of lifestyle hotels opened in July 2017. In tune with the values and yearnings of the modern traveler, the 100-room hideaway was custom-built on a spectacular beach with equal emphasis on cocoon-like spaces for private retreat and social areas that foster a sense of community.
Casa Cook echoes the ideas that increasingly define our modern culture. Slow Living, mindfulness or minimalism are examples of movements for living more simply and finding personal fulfillment by focusing on things that matter. At the same time, the sharing economy and rise in all sorts of communities reflect a desire for deeper engagement with others.
These same values are at the core of the Casa Cook brand and are best expressed by the Greek word ‘paréa’. Roughly translated as a get-together with friends, its deeper meaning relates to the culture of community. There’s a sense of belonging and connection that comes with close friendships that can also happen in more fleeting forms. The dynamic nature of Casa Cook’s paréa means everyone is welcome at any time. With its relaxed vibe and communal areas, the stage is set for spontaneous celebrations and new encounters.
In many ways, Casa Cook Kos is a beachside microcosm shaped by global movements and weaving in urban trends with characterful design. From the food concept and emphasis on well-being to the doors opened to the destination, as well as service that comes with warmth and sincerity, the holistic concept is designed to meet the demands of today’s conscious consumers.
