September 14, 2021

SAMOS — Fosun Tourism on Tuesday announced the opening of a new hotel in Greece – Casa Cook on the island of Samos. The new boutique hotel, located near the historic village of Pythagorio, has 128 rooms exclusively for adults and will open in May 2022.

"We are very proud to announce our cooperation with Casa Cook, opening a brand new hotel on the beautiful island of Samos," George Hatzidimitriou, CEO of Velos Tourism, told ANA. "We believe that the combination of Casa Cook's concept with this particular destination will offer a unique vacation experience," he said.

Casa Cook Samos will be the first new-built hotel to operate after Casa Cook El Gouna which opened in Egypt in 2019. Four new hotels under the brand Casa Cook have been opened in Greece this year by Fosun Tourism, on Rhodes, Crete and Kos, while new hotels are expected to open on Mykonos and Rhodes in 2022.
