Casa Cook opened a second resort this summer in Kos, Greece. My expectations were high, as I experienced the Casa Cook Rhodes last year and thought that the Thomas Cook group can’t surpass it. As soon Leon, my boyfriend and I, arrived at the Casa Cook Kos ( click here ), we were totally impressed. The resort looks like a village for itself that is located next to the aegean sea. It’s a beautiful place where you want to spend your vacations. I remember when we checked-in. We were sitting outside at their lobby, filling out a formula while drinking welcome cocktails – what a great start!

The moment where we entered our Junior Suite was incredible. A beautiful Suite all for ourself. The best part: our own private pool with a cute little terrace, but I was mostly impressed by the breathtaking architecture and interior design. The modern elements and the old Greek architectural style was right on point. Leon and I explored the whole resort on the first day and spotted some lovely areas like the gym, their own SPA, the pool area, restaurant, bar with a view and a long untouched stretch of golden-sand coast, lapped by the bluest of the Aegean waters.

The following days Leon and I woke up early in the morning to watch the sunrise while enjoying the breakfast ( you are able having breakfast from their restaurant terrace where you have a great view to the dunes and the beach ). When it comes to the Casa Cook breakfast you won’t be disappointed. They offer a huge and great selection of food. After breakfast we always went to the beach where we almost spent the whole day. I must admit, that I admire the aegean sea wind that you have all the time on the island. Perfect enough to work on your tan with a great breeze that touches your skin. We always had perfect days full of sunshine and relaxation. I also had time to read a book during my stay, to calm down and escape from all the work. I felt like a new born baby after staying at the Casa Cook Kos.

Note: I highly recommend you to rent a car during your stay. In my opinion, three days of your seven or eight days stay is totally enough. Leon and I took the occasion to explore the island, try some greek local food, visited different beaches, watched the sunset from different parts of the island etc..
