Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa

Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa

Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa is a 5-star resort located on the north-eastern coast of the island of Crete in southern Greece. Crete is a stunningly beautiful island on which several civilizations blossomed, leaving a remarkable cultural heritage.

The resort's unique, terraced bioclimatic architecture seamlessly blends into a mountainous landscape, offering unparalleled views of the iridescent Spinalonga island - a UNESCO World Heritage site. The well-known Italian designer Gian Paolo Venier created Cayo's alluring interiors. His eclectic décor delivers a contemporary and bright aesthetic throughout the resort.

Attention to detail is abundant at Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa, and references to nature are omnipresent. Bespoke furniture, fabrics and amenities highlight meticulous attention to aesthetics and functionality.

The resort's gastronomic offering makes it a dream destination for foodies. Its five restaurants feature different menus curated for guests. Options vary from the informal Greek taverna where tradition Cretan dishes are served to the fine dining restaurant, Kelari, curated by the Greek Michelin-starred chef Lefteris Lazarou.

An idyllic seafront spot on Plaka's beach, a charming fisherman village is only 250 metres from the resort, is reserved for guests with sun loungers, sun umbrellas and gazebos at their disposal. Plaka is also the perfect place to wander to in the evening to enjoy a pre-dinner drink or a spot of shopping in one of the many delightful boutiques.

Exclusively designed rooms and suites with stylish interiors and spacious exteriors all feature private swimming pools and breathtaking views out to the sea and Spinalonga Island. Following a recent expansion, the resort offers 116 rooms and suites in different categories giving guests flexibility to choose what best suits their requirements. Rooms on the higher levels of the resort can be accessed by one of our two funicular trains.

Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa is also home to the Armonia Spa. A quiet haven with beautiful indoor pool, lined with marble from Sumatra and three treatment rooms. The resort also offers a brand-new, two-level sea view gym and yoga studio equipped with the latest equipment for guests to enjoy.

Cayo is the perfect resort for couples and families alike, looking to experience an authentic side to Crete and enjoy the very best in Greek service and hospitality.
