Cayo Exclusive Resort and Spa is to open this weekend, with a new option for the high-end Elounda Bay area of Crete.
The hotel has 74 rooms, suites and pool villas and a restaurant curated by the first Greek chef to be awarded with a Michelin star, Lefteris Lazarou.
There are also two main pools, two bars, and given its hillside location with terraced architecture, two inclined external lifts will service the resort.
Guests can expect beach access, a gym, yoga studio and amphitheatre available for special events and private dining, while Cayo Spa has three treatment rooms, steam, sauna and relaxation pool.
Room options include the deluxe two-bedroom, three-level pool villa, which can sleep up to six people and sits at the top of the resort, with views of the famous islet of Spinalonga nearby.
The hotel is designed by Gian Paolo Venier with the environment in mind and alongside its innovative reusable energy sources, guests are gifted with a seedling when they arrive, which they can plant anywhere around the resort.
Close to sought-after Elounda, Cayo is in the village of Plaka, which has boutiques, traditional tavernas and a beach.
Rooms start from £310 (approx) for a superior sea view room and an opening discount of 30% applies on all room bookings until 31 October.
