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.

If you want to take the vibe home with you, the ho­tel’s con­cept store has ev­ery­thing from boho beach­ware to high-end ham­mocks.
