Fosun Tourism Group to Open Cook’s Hotels on Four Greek Islands

ATHENS – Four new Casa Cook and Cook’s Club hotels will open this year on the Greek islands of Samos, Mykonos, Rhodes and Corfu, as the Chinese group Fosun Tourism expands its investments in Greece, the group said on Thursday.

Fosun Tourism Group VP Alessandro Dassi said that Casa Cook hotels on Samos (128 rooms) and Mykonos (26 rooms) will open on May 1. Two more Cook’s Club hotels will open on June 1, one on Corfu (195 rooms) and one in Ialyssos on Rhodes (83 rooms).

The new hotels will join the four Fosun Tourism already operated in 2021 on Crete, Rhodes and Kos. Dassi said that an agreement has been signed for one more hotel on Rhodes in 2023, while the group is planning new hotels in Athens and the islands of Zakynthos, Thassos, and Chalkidiki, with new projects to run on Kos and Crete.

“Athens is a significant destination becuase it combines well both business and leisure,” Dassi said, who added that the group is also interested in the so-called Athenian Riviera, the coast running south of Athens as far as Sounio.
