The second of Thomas Cook’s new breed of lifestyle hotels has opened on the Greek island of Kos.
Located in Marmari, 13 miles from the airport and 15 miles from Kos Town, 100-room Casa Cook Kos is described by the operator as a “beachfront hideaway” “with the modern lifestyle traveller in mind”.
Designed to look like a village, Thomas Cook says the hotel creates a sense of community. Rooms range from doubles with terraces or verandas to two-bedroom villa suites with private pool and gardens.
It follows Casa Cook Rhodes, which opened last year.
The new hotel has the first Casa Cook Spa and the first Beach Club with a culinary concept introduced by Thomas Cook, developed with Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Ettore Botrini.
Called To Kima (which translates as ‘the Wave’) the restaurant is inspired by the ancient Greek idea ‘parea’, which means the celebration of people coming together, and has a “farm-to-table” concept.
It also has a gym, yoga terrace, juice bar, access to paddleboards and bodyboards and a motor boat for daytrips along the coast and to neighbouring islands.
Packages start from £1,059 per person based on two adults sharing on a half-board basis.
