Canaves Oia Epitome is located in Oia

The beauty of Oia is matchless. It is undoubtedly the best place to watch the sunset in Santorini. You can never get tired of watching Palaia and Nea Kameni islets glistening in the clear blue waters as the sun dips into the Aegean Sea. Oia also has the famous Ammoudi port, where you can enjoy freshly cooked seafood.

Restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and wine houses serving delicious food and beverages are scattered throughout the village. There are also plenty of shops to buy stylish clothes, authentic artifacts, and souvenirs from.

There is nothing better than staying among the whitewashed houses in one of the most famous villages of Santorini and overlooking the majestic water-filled Caldera with your friends and loved ones.

We absolutely adored Canaves Epitome ! An incredible property with peaceful and spectacular sunset vistas. There was no feeling of chaos that you might get by staying in town or on the Caldera. A two minute shuttle and you’re in the middle of Oia and all the quaint shops and restaurants. And a easy stroll down to port to get the fishing village feel. We loved the service and the people and the brand new pool is absolutely the best in all of the Greek Islands - not just Santorini. Our room was modern and minimalist and we loved the pool in our suite - it was huge and most relaxing and heated even. Our private yoga class on our deck was one of the most special memories of our trip ! Thank you.

Fantastic views and superb service. One of the best hotels we've ever stayed at. We got upgraded to a private villa with the most spectacular panoramic views. The sunset is perfect from here. Dinner at Elements was also top notch. We got the vegetarian tasting prefix dinner. Highly recommend. Wish we could have stayed longer. Great experience!

Came here for the start of our honeymoon and were well looked after, they offered us a complimentary room upgrade which was amazing and had an amazing pool and view. The room was decorated in rose petald and complementary wine which was lovely. The staff couldn't do enough for you and were so attentive. Breakfast was great. Couldn't speak highly enough of our stay here.

We stayed here for a night before we flew home from our holiday. We stayed to celebrate our anniversary and the hotel has outdone themselves. Firstly, we went to the wrong hotel. We ended up going to the Canaves Oia Suites which is a sister hotel. The hotel staff organised a transfer for us to the correct hotel for free. We were every so thankful for this. We arrived at the hotel and received a welcome drink and we were shown to our room. We had booked the junior suite with plunge pool to celebrate our anniversary but the hotel upgraded us to the hideaway room. We were amazed at how beautiful the room was! We had our own little pool and it was incredible. The hotel set up our room and provided us with a bottle of wine, water, petals on the bed and some snacks. How thoughtful! The room was really big and had numerous useful amenities including slippers, robes, loofah, coffee machine and stocked mini bar. At turn down, the housekeeping staff put hats in our room and wipes to clean our glasses. The pool was heated and incredible. We had an amazing view of the sunset and the sea. We ordered food to the room for both lunch and breakfast. Exquisite food and generous staff. The hotel pool is big and there are plenty of deck chairs for people. The staff were so friendly and the reception staff were incredible. They provided some options for dinner for us and we went to this restaurant called Fino in Oia and it was the best food we had ever. The hotel provides a free 24hr shuttle into Oia and it was incredibly helpful. Thank you to all the staff at this hotel and they made our stay and anniversary so enjoyable and memorable. Next time we will come back to stay for more than 1 night as this hotel is true luxury and ticks all the boxes.
