About CAYO
Decoration & Design

The famous Italian designer Gian Paolo Venier is the creative mind behind Cayo’s alluring interiors. His conception innovatively combines modern elements with elements of Greek and Cretan traditions.

Rare and precious materials from around the world adorn the Resort 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.

Unique art and craftsmanship ensure the harmonious coexistence of tradition with state-of-the-art.
