Santorini, 84702 Greece


Incredible Honeymoon

Beautiful, clean and picturesque hotel in an amazing location. It's further from the main hustle & bustle of Oia where the majority of tourists are, but still within short walking distance which was key. The service is amazing; they helped with everything from spa appointments, directions, dinner reservations etc. We were also upgraded upon arrival and the staff spoiled us with treats for our honeymoon. I couldn't give a better review and can't wait to return!

Glorious sunrise and sunsets-best of Oia

We booked through Kensington tours and stayed at Oia Canaves Hotel. While some reviews said junior suites had on pool, we didn’t. We had a cavernous bedroom with small table and chairs, a large bathroom And a winding downstairs to a huge shower, tub and another vanity sink area. We also had a lovely patio overlooking the caldera. Impeccable service including being met at poolside by manager who gave us a welcome drink and told us our room was now ready. Magical place to be and our private drivers picked us up from here or bus area next door to all our excursions. Lovely once in a life time adventure!

Great 4 nights stay in picturesque Oia town in Santorini

This hotel is situated at one of the picturesque locations at Oia, Santorini. Our River Plunge Pool Room was large enough for a couple and has a unique feature unlike any of the other rooms. Soaking in the pool with the Caldera in front of you is a fantastic view at day or night. The staff has been amazing taking care of us and even preparing surprises for our 10th wedding anniversary. Another shoutout to the staff who welcomed us and the team brought our breakfast to our room. Breakfast can be taken at their restaurant or at the room at no extra charge. Only thing to bear in mind is that the selection as well as the portions are huge.

A place to highly recommend to stay in Oia!
