Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa

Greece's hospitality celebrated
with luxury & exquisite elegance

Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa is a new, modern, ecologically sensitive, luxurious resort born out of passionate love in the art of traveling. Cayo's vibe and feel are the results of thoughtful consideration of the spiritual, cultural, and natural environment.


The accommodation’s striking architectural design uses Greece’s ample sunlight to heighten the beauty of the surrounding hills and the famous islet of Spinalonga, a candidate for the UNESCO List of World Heritage Site.

Cayo’s eco-friendly design and bioclimatic architecture highlight the local climate’s beneficial features. The ground slope was put in use to achieve optimal air and light exposure to the resort’s indoors and outdoors areas.

Cayo’s interiors of outstanding aesthetic caressed by Greece’s ample sunlight create a feast of colors its guests will savor.

About CAYO

Decoration & design

Cayo’s alluring interiors were conceptualized by the famous Italian art director and designer Gian Paolo Venier. Advanced forms of design combine elements of modern European culture with Greek and Cretan traditions in innovative ways.

G.P Venier’s artistic look mixed rare and precious materials from around the world with unique artistry. Touches of bright white marble from Brazil’s submarine quarries coexist with dottings of black volcanic pebbles from Sumatra. Handpicked elements of rare craftsmanship provide a seamless blend of the resort’s look and feel with the surrounding hills and the Cretan archipelago’s azure water.

Cayo’s eclectic décor, custom made plates, and amenities deliver touches of outstanding aesthetic.

Touches of unique artistry and craftsmanship ensure the harmonious coexistence of traditional and state of the art.


Cayo’s 74 exclusively designed luxurious rooms, villas, and suites come with private swimming pools. Stylish exteriors and a panoramic view invite guests seeking luxury to immerse themselves into a world of exquisite elegance.
