Setting

Pythagoras’s playground

At Casa Cook in the eastern Aegean isle of Samos you can pretty much walk on water…the floors are mostly liquid after all. Concrete pathways are out, in favour of six swimming pools and a number of H2O installations. Other transcendent experiences here include an epicurean adventure at the Beach House (care of its Josper grill), days spent on cabanas suspended above (more) water and sundowners next to a fire-pit. It’s walking distance to the town of Pythagorio, named for Samos’s famous son, where traditional tavernas line the harbour in a suitably ungeometric pattern.

Our favourite rooms

Make new friends with a swim-up suite where you can chat with your neighbour as you cool off – or if you’re feeling territorial about your water, request a room with a private pool. And if still water won’t do, book one of the Rooftop Suites overlooking the main pool that has a Jacuzzi.

Poolside

There are six swimming pools, some of which have a set of swim-up suites built around them.

Book in at the spa between 11am and 8pm for Elemis facials, hammams, experiential showers and more water features (hearing the rushing trickles are all part of the relaxation). Some of the treatment rooms have a Jacuzzi.

Address
Casa Cook Samos
Potokaki
Pythagorion Samos
83103
Greece

Casa Cook is on the south-eastern shores of Samos, a Greek island in the east Aegean that’s just off the coast of western Turkey.

Planes

The island’s airport is a 15-minute drive away from Casa Cook. The hotel can arrange transfers on request. There are some direct flights during the summer, but you may have to connect to a domestic service in Athens.

Trains

Automobiles

The hotel is within walking distance of the neighbouring village but if you want to pay homage to Hera or be a Pythagoras pilgrim, a car will be useful. There are public parking spaces nearby.

Other

Ferries dock at Samos from the capital’s port of Piraeus, Thessaloniki (also on the mainland) and other islands, including Mykonos.

Worth getting out of bed for

Samos’s trigonometry titan and mathematical mastermind gets his own namesake town here – Pythagorio is within walking distance of the hotel. You’ll also be able to visit the archaeological site where the Temple of Hera once stood, visit vineyards producing the island’s celebrated sweet muscat wines and clamber through the Tunnel of Eupalinos, an aqueduct built under Mount Kastro in the sixth century (also home to some pleasing geometry that would make Pythagoras proud).

Local restaurants

There are lots of traditional tavernas to pick from in Pythagorio, where you can sit out on the waterfront and select your venue based on its choice of music. 

Local bars

Between the hotel and Pythagorio, stop off for refreshments at Asterias, a beach club with fun for all the family.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this island hotel in Greece and unpacked their shorts and swimwear, a full account of their beach break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Casa Cook Samos…

In the birthplace of Epicurus, good food and fine wine are guaranteed – and with one look at the menu at Casa Cook’s Beach House, it’s clear the chef is committed to the finer things in life. Samos is also somewhere you’ll be able to pay homage to the hypotenuse, but that’s another story. 

At the newly unveiled Casa Cook in this eastern Aegean isle, just off the coast of Turkey, there are indeed angular terracotta buildings (though not many triangles), most of which are connected by vast pools of water. Some are installations, but there are six open for swims. It’s a water world of various floating neighbourhoods, where you can swim-up to your suite (and next-door’s) for convivial cocktails, friendly banter and even a cup of sugar. As well as raising a glass to Epicurus and tipping your hat to the godfather of triangles, you’ll be able to visit the Temple of Hera and pay respect to Zeus’s fiery wife (/sister). The good times are guaranteed.
