Canaves Oia Epitome

This hotel is seasonal and welcoming guests from April to October

Complete serenity and soul-stirring sunsets in a peaceful spot outside Oia, Santorini

Santorini is one of Greece’s most popular islands. Yet at Canaves Oia Epitome, you may feel you have this enchanting isle almost entirely to yourself. This all-villa luxury resort is just outside the main town – and privacy, style and an almost zen-like calm are the order of the day. Then, as evening unfolds, the hotel reveals its greatest treasure: the best sunset views in Oia.

When you’re not gazing at the sky, you’ll find a lot to love about Canaves Oia Epitome. From the villa interiors to the innovative rooftop terraces, the contemporary design captures the dusky hues of the surrounding volcanic landscape. Pick out your perfect lounge area and spend the day by the pool – and you don’t even have to leave your villa for this. Seek inner peace and rejuvenate with signature spa treatments. Then make for the fine dining Restaurant and lounge Bar for cocktails and world-class Greek cuisine.

Canaves Oia Epitome may feel a little like a world of its own, but just outside, island life goes on. Wander down to Katharos Beach. Or hop on the shuttle into Oia. Morning and evening are quietest – giving you plenty of space to snap photos of blue-domed churches and narrow streets winding up the volcanic cliffs.


Enjoy your stay!

Markos Chaidemenos Santorini

Independent Minds: Markos Chaidemenos

Carved into the volcanic cliffs of Greece’s most popular island destination, the Chaidemenos family saw something special in a set of 17th-century caves, once used to store wine. As one of the first families to introduce tourism to Santorini’s once sleepy fishing village of Oia, their vision of all-white, minimalistic suites not only shaped the Canaves Oia brand, but helped define the island’s now iconic luxury accommodation aesthetic.

Incredible service from every staff member. Gorgeous facilities and incredible sunsets.

While the setting was pretty perfect, the service was over the top wonderful. One evening, we made a wrong turn in Oia to find the shuttle back to the hotel after dinner. The hotel called to find us and sent the driver to retrieve us!

Nice unbeatable sunset view villas

Appreciated upgrade from suite to villa due to honeymoon. Welcome drink was appreciated by my wife and she liked the amount of natural ingredients contained. Complimentary transport buses with good mannered and friendly drivers - super helpful. Liked the pool in the villa (water a bit too cold) and the Read more[SPLIT]Read lessview downstairs of the pool is amazing. Improvements could be made on breakfast table seating at the restaurant which was far too close to one another so limited social distancing. Dinner could have started earlier as sunset has already completed before they allow us to enter into the restaurant
