Casa Cook, Rhodes, Greece

Its travellers cheques once an indispensible part of every traveller’s packing list, Thomas Cook is reinventing itself in a thoroughly unexpected way. Its first salvo is the launch of a new hotel brand Casa Cook Rhodes, the first of what is hoped to be a global chain of easy, relaxed boltholes.

Berlin-based design agency Lambs & Lions, interior designer Annabell Kutucu and architect Vana Pernari have conspired to create a series of 90 one- and two-storey pool villas in Kolymbia, a small seaside town on the mid-eastern coastline of Rhodes.

Set against a stretch of muscular rocky hills, the vibe is resolutely mid-century California louche with accents of exposed stone walls, timber decks and pergolas, while the bright rooms are strewn with woven straw poufs, rough throws, retro wire chairs and rough cotton.

Thomas Cook repackaged: tour firm opens its first boutique resort in Rhodes

Casa Cook is out to impress. On arriving at the newly-built Kolymbia resort, on the Greek island of Rhodes, we are informed that the reception area is not merely a reception, but also a “concept store”. The restaurant is not simply a restaurant but “The Kitchen Club”. The poolside bar is, as far as I can tell, just “the bar”, but there are none of the usual fishbowls, no tiki huts, and definitely no Sex on the Beach. Instead, it is filled with cast-iron chairs, wicker lampshades and rustic wooden stools (all available for purchase from the aforementioned concept store).
