Situated within a serene stretch of rural beachside on the Greek island of Kos, Casa Cook’s second retreat was designed with a sense of community and slow-living in mind. Akin to a historic Greek village and their labyrinth of cubist houses, a village-like feel was developed with a mix of one and two-storey houses grouped around Mediterranean gardens and patios.
Each of the five room types - ranging from doubles to villa suites were created as a series of private sanctuaries. Inside, mid-century elements are contrasted with naturally tactile textures and traditionally handmade pieces, bringing a sense of timelessness; simplicity and sophistication.
Focusing on the Greek philosophy of “Parea” the hotel's beach club is designed in a more relaxed architectural style with large openings and a textured thatch roof. Retractable glass planes create an airy, open space allow the guest a seamless transition between the tranquillity of the powdery sand dunes of the beach and the relaxed energy around the main pool.
The sense of relaxation is enhanced with a separate spa and wellbeing area which encompasses an indoor pool, treatment rooms, a glass walled sauna overlooking a lush courtyard, with views through to the domed hammam.
