Casa Cook Rhodes \ Rhodes \ Greece

Located at the base of a craggy mountainside dotted with wildflowers and grazing goats, this tranquil bohemian retreat has the feel of mid-century California with predominantly white buildings accented with exposed stone walls, timber decks, azure pools and silvery olive trees. The ambiance is a fusion of tropical and modern with Mediterranean and nomadic elements - picture taupe sofas with chocolate-hued acapulco chairs, suspended black loungers amidst a cluster of potted palm trees. The wall behind the reception desk is adorned with an elaborate ceramic mural of vibrant parrots, monkeys and jungle palms. This is the newest concept hotel of the Thomas Cook Group, what they call a "boutique hotel with a bohemian spirit", a far cry from the all-inclusive family resorts they are known for.
