My fiancé planned a trip to Europe for us as a surprise. One of our stops was here! I've been wanting to see Santorini for a while now and the Canaves was nothing short of amazing.

Simply amazing in every way. Breathtakingly beautiful views, relaxed yet refined atmosphere, phenomenal and anticipatory service. Possibly the nicest place we've ever stayed, and we travel quite a bit. Canaves Oia Hotel is one of those blissful places that simply melts any worries or stress away. We can't wait to return one day and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else...

Consisting of two sections, Canaves Oia and Canaves Oia Suites are 100 metres apart and divided by the pretty cathedral of Oia. Each section has its own pool, pool bar, sun deck and reception and of course the same impeccable service.Enjoy breakfast on your balcony as you soak up the amazing vista.
