Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa is nestled in beautiful Elounda Bay in the north-east of Crete, overlooking the island of Spinalonga.

Rooms at Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa

The elegant rooms, suites and villas are individually designed and each one features the work of a different artist, effortlessly blending traditional style with contemporary flair, including state-of-the-art amenities, alongside private terraces and private pools looking out over the sea.

Food & Drink

Feast on irresistible Greek, Mediterranean and international cuisine, crafted by expert chefs and accompanied by panoramic sea views. Go from a delicious breakfast buffet at Ambrosia to gourmet Mediterranean dishes by the pool at the Sage & Thyme restaurant, overlooking Spinalonga, while traditional Greek dishes are given a creative twist at Kelari. Fresh produce comes from local farms, markets and organic gardens, including Cayo's own herb garden, with fresh seafood and local olive oil in abundance.

There are several lovely spots to enjoy a drink, and Cayo also has a well-stocked wine cellar offering a range of excellent wines.


There are two pools, a gym, a yoga studio and a lovely spa with a steam room and a large heated indoor pool.

Activities at Cayo Exclusive Resort & Spa

A shuttle service from the resort to the white-pebbled beach at Plaka makes it easy to spend a relaxed day on the beach, swimming in the clear waters, trying out water sports with an instructor on hand, setting sail in a catamaran or unwinding on a lounger with a good book. You don't have to go too far if you're feeling hungry or thirsty either - enjoy Cretan meze and signature cocktails at the Stone Beach House, which looks out over the pretty village of Plaka.

Cayo's atmospheric amphitheatre, with its fabulous views, is perfect for taking in a performance in the evening.
