Canaves 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.

Me and my wife stayed two nights here as part of our honeymoon and this was easily the nicest place we have ever stayed at! The hospitality was Impeccable. Everything we requested was provided without issue. Extra towels, ride accommodations, warming up our private pool. Speaking of we got the honeymoon suite which provided the most private Terrance with a plunge pool that was heated (highlight of our stay). The breakfast is complimentary and quite possibly some of the best breakfast I’ve ever had. I got the shakashuka both days and it was absolutely delicious. I was stunned that breakfast of that quality was complimentary as most upscale hotels would charge for this kind of service. The location isn’t In the center of Oia but the resort provides an easily accessible shuttle to and from the town center. We never waited more than 5-10 min for the shuttle and it was a quick drive there. We actually liked the location as it was way more private for our honeymoon rather than being crowded by tourists trying to get pictures like how we saw other people dealing with at different resorts inside the Oia town center. Overall I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would absolutely come back here!

Beautiful! We got upgraded to a beautiful villa and it was truly an unforgettable experience. The views are amazing. The pool was heated at our room. They gave us the most delicious cake for my husband’s birthday, provided champagne, wrote birthday cards and made it so special for him. The food at the main restaurant for breakfast was great, drinks, etc. I only wish the main pools were heated because they were beyond freezing in October but that’s a small con because the pool in our room was heated. Can’t say enough about how amazing this stay was!

Astounded. Every detail of this hotel is considered, every aspect of service is honed and polished, and any need I could have had seemed anticipated and planned for. Two comforters on your bed? No problem. Heat the pool more? No worries. Need a steamer? They delivered it to the room - quickly. Not only that, but the facility is brand new, and everything feels extremely expensive and well made. The property is so peaceful, we had a hard time leaving. I was worried initially about the shuttle to Oia and how it isn’t walkable, but I never waited more than 5 minutes for a driver - and all of them were wonderfully friendly and professional. If you look at the hordes of people that congregate each afternoon a 10 minute drive above the hotel, you understand that this location is also the most desirable for enjoying Santorinis famous sunsets. At Epitome, you get the benefit of the location for enjoying those spectacular sunsets, but with total tranquility and privacy. I’ll never forget swimming in our little private infinity pool, with the celebratory bottle of champagne the hotel provided, light breeze and the only sound being the lapping of water, leaning over the edge and enjoying this gorgeous sunset - it was so decadent it felt illegal. Highly highly recommend staying here.

My best friend and I came here for my birthday, the experience from the second we got there was absolutely amazing. Helen, and Anna from the front desk helped make this an unbelievable trip. First night when we returned from town the room was decorated for my birthday, with cake and balloons. I have stayed in many 5 star resorts but this place was absolutely the best! Thanks again hope to come back again
