We were sailing through the Cyclades for a week and decided to spend a night on Santorini. Cnaves was highly recommended so we gave it a shot and were thrilled with outcome. The property was everything we were hoping for and more. My wife and I usually stay in Four Seasons and Canaves was of similar, if not better caliber. Our room was large with our own hot tub and great walk in shower. The views of the sea were breathtaking. We were on the suites side of the property and spent the first afternoon at the pool. Great service, the pool was refreshing and the views you just cant get enough of. We ended up eating a light lunch by the pool. After exploring the Oia and shopping (including having fish nibble our feet), we came back for a truly wonderful dinner. Food and service were impeccible. Breakfast the next morning and we had a whole day of meals and would do do again.

Would like to come back for a long weekend for sure!

Canaves Oia Hotel is representative of a hotel that belongs in the Small Luxury Hotel collection. We stayed 3 nights at the Canaves Oia Hotel in a beautifully appointed, comfortable and spacious room with a private patio and plunge tub overlooking the Caldera. The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. The food is fresh and delicious! The pool may be small, but perfect for this property. The atmosphere is tranquil and peaceful. There's no better place to relax and recharge. I hope to return there soon!!! Well done, Canaves!!!
The only cautionary comment I would make is to make sure you book the Canaves Oia HOTEL and not the Canaves Oia SUITES. Upon our arrival, we were initially assigned to a room in the SUITES despite the fact that our reservation was booked at the Canaves Oia HOTEL. The room we were placed in at the Suites had older-looking and dated furniture and bed. The bathroom looked updated, but was significantly smaller than our bathroom at the HOTEL. Thankfully, we were promptly changed to the Canaves HOTEL where we had booked our reservation. Hopefully, the owners will continue their renovations and updates to the SUITES, as well. The Suites has all the potential to be one of the top hotels in Oia.

We stayed at Canaves for 5 nights of our 3 week honeymoon in the Greek Islands. From the moment we arrived, every detail was perfect. The hotel upgraded our reservation to a 2-bedroom suite with a private plunge pool. The view from our suite was absolutely spectacular. We could have easily stayed the entire 5 days on our patio and never left. They have a great room service menu for eating in. The staff at Canaves are exceptional. They happily arranged dinner reservations, car rentals and outings, helping to make every detail of our stay perfect. We hope to be back.

The hotel has stunning vistas, very welcoming yet elegant service. Rooms are well appointed - in keeping with overall vibe of Santorini yet with a certain touch of elegance. Food at pool restaurant top rate. Really an outstanding experience from beginning to end

Room Tip: Ask for a room up high so less foot traffic

We spent 5 days during July with my partner at Canaves. From the first moment we met the driver we knew that this would be an amazing experience!
He gave us 2 bottles of iced water as a welcome and he took us to the hotel after explaining us everything about the island and the history!
We arrived at the hotel and Marianna assisted us with the check in which includes a tour around the property a a nice cocktail by the pool area... She took us to our suite an i must say that it was breathtaking! The layout, the design, the bathroom, the terrace.
1st thing we did is to order room service and have a massage in the room!! Try the couple's seduction package :)
The rest of our stay was pretty much enjoying the pool area with nice complimentary smoothies and other treats, the room service and of course the beautiful views!!
The staff, which was very friendly really helped us unwind and forget about city life for a while at least! We will definitely be back next year! Perhaps for a little longer as for sure it wasn't enough!

From the porters who meet guests at their vehicle upon arriving to the beautiful rooms carved into a cave with spectacular balcony views of the volcanoes and Aegean Sea, to the opportunity (we took for our foursome!!!) to rent a 68 foot luxury yacht replete with hotel chef prepared meal onboard, this hotel exceeded my already wild expectations. The staff is gracious and always willing to help WITH A SMILE and body language that suggests that the smile is genuine. Breakfast was scrumptious. When we go back to Santorini, we will stay at Canaves Oia. By the way, the hotel is a short walk to the island end where one can view God's beautiful painted AND VARIED NIGHTLY sunset!!!

We stayed here for 5 nights during our honeymoon. From the moment we were greeted at the Santorini port by the hotel's driver we knew it was going to be a memorable trip. We arrived at the hotel to a very warm welcome from the staff and were immediately guided through check-in. We were told that because we were on our honeymoon and because we were Virtuoso guests, we had been upgraded to a superior suite with a small outdoor pool! As you can imagine, we were quite excited by this news and knew we were in for an amazing week. We were also given welcome drinks as well as a bottle of wine and fresh fruit for our room. On top of that we were told that we were eligible for either an 80 Euro credit or a free sailing tour of the island. Obviously we took the sailing tour and it was an amazing day on the water.

Our room was spacious but bare as is the custom in this area from what we learned. The room was a cave literally dug out of the mountainous terrain of Oia. It was a very cool experience to stay here. Breakfast was included and they generously give you the option of eating at a buffet or having it delivered to your room at no cost. We decided to try both but liked having it delivered to our patio and ended up doing that most days.

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and arranged for many great meals and some activities. The friendly and knowledgeable gentleman who was on duty at night was the most helpful (I only wish I could remember his name!). He had great restaurant recommendations and knew all the good spots to see the sunset as well as places we should make sure to see. We used him as a big resource and visited him each night to plan the next day. He also arranged for a very special birthday wine tour that we greatly enjoyed.

We can't say enough good things about this property and the staff. We look forward to returning one day.
