Casa Cook Samos is nestled in the island’s forest-like landscape, overlooking the boundless beaches of the northeastern Aegean Sea. This 128-room adults-only (+16) retreat, conveniently located a 5-minute drive from the airport, opened its doors in May 2022, and offers laid-back luxury in one of the Mediterranean’s most historically-rich surroundings.
Designed by Block 722 and inspired by traditional Greek houses, or Kamares, found in Samian villages, Casa Cook Samos’ architecture is down-to-earth and inclusive. The historic concept of a Grecian village has been embodied in the modern space, where the hotel’s swimming pools act as the town centre of each small ‘neighbourhood’ within the hotel — offering space for guests to immerse themselves and build connections with others, or retreat back to their room to recharge in complete solitude.
Throughout the space, there is a clear emphasis on the fluidness of indoor and outdoor, with inside areas merging seamlessly into outside spaces. The earthy textures and colours that make up the hotel are inspired by the local land and its organic elements: abundant greenery echoes the island’s fertile vegetation; while the endless pools of water mimic the landscape’s waterfalls, rivers and shores.
As such, nature intertwines flawlessly with social vibrancy at Casa Cook Samos. Six swimming pools surrounded by plush sun loungers provide meeting places perfectly paired with handcrafted cocktails and mellow DJ sets. Venturing indoors, the luxury retreat’s bespoke rooms were the concept of interiors expert, Vasilis Nikos, designed with modern minimalism in mind. Guests can select the Timeless Classic, Swim- up Suite or the exclusive villa — all of which offer the brand’s consistent laidback indulgence. Each room boasts its own balcony or private terrace and a refined lounge area. The Swim-Up Suites are ideal for guests who want to be by the water at all times, whereas the 70-sqm Rooftop Suites provide panoramic views and abundant relaxation space, as well as a private pool, secluded garden with a firepit, and jungle-inspired openair shower.
Offering guests the ultimate rejuvenation, Casa Cook Samos’ bespoke spa concept provides a soothing, restorative escape for the body and soul. Each treatment has been designed with utmost
care, using only the best local herbs and natural products. Whether guests are in the mood for a reviving massage or a refreshing facial, the relaxing retreat strives to guide guests to a place of
balance and tranquillity. When it comes to winding down and recharging, guests can also join Pilates or yoga classes, either in a group or privately.
Nourishing the body as well as the soul, Casa Cook Samos’ restaurant serves up the flavours of the Greek islands and beyond. The dedicated team of staff fuse fresh ingredients with culinary flair to create mouthwatering and memorable dishes. Immersed in breathtaking Grecian landscapes and embraced by modern minimalistic spaces, Casa Cook Samos offers an enchanting ambience.
