Guests will enjoy high-quality freshly prepared food by executive chefs, throughout the day and into the evening, before sipping on incredible cocktail creations and listening to beats by Berlin DJ, Sugar Jim Jr., as the sun sets and into the night.

The first event, which will take place on Wednesday 26th April, will be held to celebrate the first anniversary of Cook’s Club’s Ialysos hotel in Rhodes.

The 83-room, adults-only Cook’s Club Ialysos Rhodes hotel, which includes bungalows, private pool suites and some with their own private roof garden, opened last year in the vibrant, picturesque Ialysos area of northwest Rhodes.

Over the course of the summer, Cook’s Club Sessions will travel from Spain to the Red Sea, hosting exclusive events at each of the Cook’s Club hotels in the collection.

Cook’s Club Sessions will feature an exclusive event team, including:
