Casa Cook Rhodes
Kolymbia, Rhodes, Greece
The lowdown A breezy beachside hotel with a cool communal vibe. Best for Child-free couples and singles looking to unwind.
Thomas Cook’s innovative new venture, the newly opened Casa Cook Rhodes is a beach lover’s dream. The 90-room hotel (all with swim-up pools) is an adults-only affair and is free-spirited in the best possible way. It’s all about easy living here, with a carefree, bohemian vibe that means you’re positively encouraged to make new friends as you pad around barefoot on the bleached wood decks and cool stone floors or relax on the low-level seating. Design-wise, think clean lines, natural colours and tempting textures. The locally sourced food features the perfect balance of healthy and indulgent dishes, served at long communal tables. The focus is very much on chilling out, with a range of activities to help you do just that – balance your mind, body and spirit with the open-air yoga sessions, borrow an Electra beach bike or just kick back and listen to the DJ’S top tunes. If you want to take the vibe home with you, the hotel’s concept store has everything from boho beachware to high-end hammocks.
