Thomas Cook and LMEY Investments will develop a hotel for the luxurious Thomas Cook brand Casa Cook on Ibiza. The project involves the transformation an existing property (former Hotel Acor Playa) and an adjacent plot of land, with a total surface of 13,000 sqm, into a 200-room hotel in the bay of Cala Gracio, Ibiza.
Ingo Burmester, Thomas Cook chief hotels officer, said: “The new hotel fund, Thomas Cook Hotel Investments, has been an objective for some time. We are now able to accelerate our plan to acquire established properties in popular destinations for us to transform into own-brand hotels. Delivering some of the highest customer satisfaction scores in the business and attracting a new generation of customers to Thomas Cook, Casa Cook is a key pillar in our own-brand hotel strategy. I’m particularly excited to be working with LMEY to develop our first Casa Cook in Spain – and in Ibiza, the perfect destination for the Casa Cook customer who looks for a beach retreat to match their urban lifestyle.”
Casa Cook Ibiza will open in the summer of 2019. It will be the fourth hotel under the boutique lifestyle brand and the first in Spain. Thomas Cook will also open the first long haul Casa Cook, in Mauritius in winter 2019.
