Canaves Oia Summary
In the fashionable village of Oia, the Canaves Oia resort enjoys a unique location on a cliff-side overlooking the ancient volcano. Historically, 17th century caves where used for storing wine and now, a resort of elegantly designed suites. We love that the Canaves family have carefully retained the traditional Cyclades style of white-washed stone. Whilst, bringing luxurious touches to the interiors. The result? A resort that boasts an authentic ambience as well as warm hospitality and bags of style.
With echoes of chic Mykonos, Canaves Oia is a seriously impressive place to be. You’ll soon feel at home at this caldera-side hotel where everyone, from the receptionists to the waiting staff, dress in crisp bright white. Step outside and you’ll find steps leading down to the suites and winding paths, dressed with shrubs and flowers, leading up to the infinity pool with sumptuous loungers and panoramic caldera views.
Start the day with an a la carte breakfast taken on the terrace overlooking the caldera. Both hot and cold dishes are provided as well as locally produced juices, yoghurt and honey. Dinner is in the Petra restaurant, covering two floors and boasting spectacular views from the top floor, next to the pool that glistens in the evening. Here, the chef uses the freshest ingredients in order to prepare menu choices that are both traditional and modern.
The rooms, suites and villas, some carved directly out of the cliff-side, blend seamlessly with the rest of the resort. Unusually for a caldera style hotel, most rooms boast windows which flood rooms with much natural light. The decor is, of course, minimalist and white. However, modern amenities abound from big fluffy towels and bathrobes to chic toiletries. There are an array of room types to choose from but we feel that our romantic couples will love the ‘river pool suites’. Not to mention, you’ll be surprised to find a private pool which winds from the bathroom, through cave-like walls, spilling out into a plunge pool on the terrace.
The cool breeze of the Aegean, the breathtaking sunsets and the fascinating views of the sea and the caldera all combine to create the most romantic setting for your destination wedding. Let your fairytale wedding come alive in the jaw-dropping dramatic scenery of one of the best hotels in Santorini where you can exchange vows in a setting of unequalled beauty. Mark the beginning of a life together within the magical atmosphere of the infinite blue sea and the scarlet painted evening sky, in a flawless wedding reception to cherish for a lifetime.
