Santorini is widely recognized as one of the best destinations around the globe for romantic holidays, honeymoons, and marriages. This is why thousands of couples of all ages and nationalities visit it every year, in order to celebrate their love and admire its breathtaking sceneries. There are two types of landscapes that you are going to find in Santorini. The most popular and romantic landscape can be found on the Caldera Side, and it is distinguished for its stunning hotels and villages hanging from a steep cliff.
Nowadays, there are many hotels offering breathtaking views of the Caldera, however the majority of them are based mainly on their great views, neglecting the rest facilities and services. There are very few of them actually stepping out of their comfort zone, offering unique services and facilities that will make your Santorini trip a unique experience to remember. Among the handpicked hotels where you can enjoy a unique experience compared to none other is Canaves Oia Hotel in the beautiful Oia Village.
Canaves Oia Hotel: The Vision!
Canaves Oia Hotel is actually one of the hotels that transformed the fishing village of Oia into the luxury getaway that we get to admire today. Its story started in 1985, when Yiannis and Anna Chaidemenos decided to transform 17th century caves that used to store wine into chic luxury hotel rooms. Once hosting only two rooms, Canaves Oia has expanded to 18 hotel rooms aspiring to become the host of the ideal honeymoons.
In 2010, Chaidemenos' sons, Markos and Alexandros, took over, bringing a new era to Canaves Oia Hotel. Since their take over, Canaves Oia has gained a worldwide reputation while it has won various awards. In 2017, all of the common areas of the hotel were renovated and a new infinity pool was added in the hotel.
Honeymoon Suite + More!
The newly renovated Honeymoon Suite was specially created for the little love birds who are searching for a nestle to cuddle - and not only. Its private balcony offers stunning views over the caldera and it features a luxurious plunge pool Jacuzzi where you can relax whenever you want.
Of course, you will be welcome with a complimentary welcome drink which you can enjoy upon your arrival as well as a complimentary bottle of wine and fruits. The breakfast will be served at your private terrace from 8 am to 11:15 am in the morning, which you can enjoy at your terrace overlooking the caldera.
Another great room for couples is the River Pool Suite.
The Finest Dining Experience in Santorini!
The Infinity Pool Bar Restaurants offers an all day menu with casual lunch choices, snacks, and signature cocktails which you can enjoy while sunbathing. During the day, the bar has a chilling atmosphere with lounge music, while special events and cocktail nights are often scheduled in the evenings.
