Thomas Cook”s first launch of a new hotel brand Casa Cook Rhodes designed by  Lambs & Lions, interior designer Annabell Kutucu and architect Vana Pernari.  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. In the kitchen, Manolis Giorgakis sources local island produce and the resort’s own greenhouse to cook up a medley of saganaki and other Greek classics, vast pots of linguine strewn with clams, crabs and king prawns, and grilled ostrich.
