Casa Cook is set to open its first bespoke family-friendly hotel, designed with the postmodern family in mind, on a pristine stretch of Crete in the ancient city of Chania.

Following the success of the first two Casa Cook Hotels in Rhodes and Kos, Casa Cook Chania is the latest lifestyle hotel by leading holiday company Thomas Cook.

The project has been led by Remo Masala, group creative director of Thomas Cook, and Tobias Gaertner, head of Casa Cook brand development.

Thomas Cook teamed up with the Berlin-based design agency Lambs and Lions – led by creative director Michael Schickinger – to develop the architectural concept and interior design. Collaborators include Berlin-based interior stylist Annabell Kutucu, and the Athens-based architectural team of K-Studio, led by Konstantinos and Dimitris Karampatakis.

Throughout the boutique property, a series of soulful spaces and sanctuaries merge minimalist mid-century modernism with sustainable design in one seamless union.

The 102 bedrooms rooms are designed to feel earthy and organic, and centred around the Greek concept of ‘parea’ – friends gathering to share their experiences about life, philosophies, values and idea.

Inspired by the healing power of nature, the hotel’s Jungle Spa concept aims to take guests on a journey through some of the world’s most ancient techniques in body healing. Each treatment has been designed using local herbs and natural products.

‘We’ve created a fresh, forward-thinking spa menu that encourages and empowers total relaxation,” said Ioannis Charalambous, spa consultant. “From traditional Cretan treatments to our very own Jungle Spa signature ceremonies, each treatment has been tailored with detail and passion. It’s a one-of-a-kind spa experience – a soothing and restorative escape, right in the heart of Casa Cook Chania.’

Signature treatments include the Rainforest Mineral Massage and Four Hands Massage, as well as our Cretan Signature Treatments infused with local botanicals.

The spa uses products by Codage Modern Apothecary, Emma Hardie and Dr. Jackson’s, as well as local plants, to achieve skin healing and regeneration.

The hotel also will feature a kids’ concept designed in collaboration with leading experts in child education and family travel, which encourages children to learn and explore in a natural and creative manner, following their individual interests through cooking classes, painting workshops and sleepovers in a tepee camp.

‘We’re excited to be launching our first family-friendly hotel with a bespoke kids club concept in Chania,” said Tobias Gärtner, brand manager for Casa Cook Hotels. “While family time is treasured by all, we believe everyone deserves a little peace and quiet. That’s why we created our first outdoor Jungle Spa: a new and unique experience where parents can relax and unwind while their kids explore the island together with our Kids Club staff.’
