Elegance in Elounda, Crete – Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa, Greece | Black Platinum Gold

Exquisite Elegance in Elounda

Although surrounded by some of Crete‘s most luxurious resorts, Elounda retains a charming down-to-earth feel.

CAYO Exclusive Resort and Spa is Elounda’s most elegant and luxurious design resort, born out of passionate love in the art of traveling. Its unique terraced architecture blends seamlessly into the mountainous landscape offering unparalleled views of an iridescent Spinalonga Islet —a candidate for the UNESCO List of World Heritage Site.

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