Casa Cook Samos by Block722 architects

Nestled in the island Samos’ forest-like landscape, gazing towards the boundless beaches of the northeastern Aegean Sea, is the newest hotel to join the Casa Cook collection by Block722 architects. This 128-room adults-only (+16) retreat, opening its doors in May 2022, offers the Casa Cook trademark laid-back luxury in one of the Mediterranean’s most historically rich surroundings. Inspired by traditional Greek houses, or Kamares, found in Samian villages, the 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 infinite swimming pools act as the town center of each small ‘neighborhood’ within the hotel — offering space to immerse with those around you when the mood strikes or retreat back to your room to recharge in complete solitude. The earthy textures and colors that make up the space are inspired by the local land and its organic elements: the abundant greenery echoes the island’s fertile vegetation with palms, pines, agave, and wild olive trees; while the endless pools of water throughout mimic the landscape’s countless waterfalls, rivers and shores.
Natural, unrefined tones from local leather, wood, and stone melt into more contemporary elements like smooth terrazzo to create a modern-luxe space that is still an ode to the land’s roots. Designed as bespoke sanctuaries, the rooms — ranging from classic doubles to a private villa — are modern and minimalist, decorated with unrefined tones and natural, handcrafted elements creating a modern-luxe atmosphere with a deeply authentic Greek feel.
