As a frequent traveler, we have visited fine hotels and luxury resorts on almost every continent. The Canaves Oia Epitome in Santorini is now my favorite, and has claimed its well earned position as my favorite resort in the world! The resort is set on the side of the mountain in Oia, Santorini. For those familiar with Santorini this resort is a fast (free shuttle) 10 minute drive to the main tourist attractions, and of course the instagram worthy blue domes of the churches that many wait in line to snap their selfie. This resort has everything you need, the rooms all have unobstructed, breathtaking views of the ocean. The layout of the resort is such that you don't have to climb any stairs to get to your room (Huge Plus compared to other resorts). The resort is brand new and the rooms are huge and modern, ours was a two floor villa with the lower floor having a view of the garden and a view of the underwater of the pool on the terrace (this is something from lifestyles of the rich and famous). The staff are all professional and friendly, the food and beverage exquisite and always delicious. The breakfast even included a rotating selection of greek breakfast items and pastries, and It seemed that each days breakfast treat was more delectable than the previous day! And to save one of my favorite piece is that by my estimation this is by far the best hotel for those who enjoy a truly beautiful sunset. Most of the other resorts have partial view of the sunset, but due to the unique location of this property it affords the guests a truly magnificent sunset each evening which was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable part of our trip. I could spend hours detailing the small details this resort took into consideration, nothing was overlooked, ever small detail even down to exfoliating body scrubs are in the rooms. We loved it so much we will be back in September of 2022, and we are counting the days until we return!

Let me first start off by saying this was a trip almost three years in the making, so we had it kind of built up in our minds so I was a bit nervous. Our family of three (our delightful son is 11) have traveled all over prior to the pandemic and stayed in some of the most gorgeous 5 star resorts and hotels over the years in Paris, London, Italy , Barcelona, Switzerland, Hawaii, South Africa , and the Caribbean… and I will be honest, this is the most spectacular property we’ve ever stayed at!
One of the biggest reason? The absolutely amazing staff. Every single person there wanted us to have an exceptional time. We simply could not have asked for more. I was in regular contact with someone in particular, Desi, for a couple of years prior; and she made sure everything was a one of a kind experience. They handled our private transfer from Athens to Santorini and the whole experience was perfect. Once we arrived we were greeted warmly and that continued the entire stay. And now for the room. The 2 bedroom villa is stunning. We had an enormous private infinity pool that was meticulously cleaned daily, outdoor dining for 8, and a sun deck. Inside the room was spaced out over two levels; each with its own bedroom, living rooms and full bathrooms. Plenty of closets and lovely touches everywhere (our sons bedrooms window was actually under the pool which he adored) as well as many “secret” entrances. It’s perfect, you will love it.
Breakfast each morning was included and was at the main pool and wonderful each morning. Beautiful views and extensive menus daily.
We dined twice at Elements, once as a family, and one night we did their “dinner for two” under the stars private dinner. Both times were lovely and the tasting menus for both were delicious with an excellent wine pairing.
We decided to rent our own car for the 10 days we were there and again, the staff were amazing; they proven invaluable in charting boats, hiring a photographer for family photos, diving, wine tasting, etc. I really felt like the island is one big village; everyone knows everyone, and they all a truly kind people. One evening we joined Desi for drinks at one of their sister hotels, Canaves Sunday Suites and the views were as always, perfect. It’s about a 6 minute walk to downtown Oia, a perfect respite from the town with the freedom to wander whenever you’d like. This was our first trip to Santorini, but it most certainly will not be our last. And we will never stay anywhere else on the island. I promise you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I visited Santorini tor the first time in April. We decided on this hotel due to its quieter location. We stayed in a 1-bedroom suite with a plunge pool. The hotel is beautiful with a picturesque infinity pool, well appointed rooms and magnificent sunset views. The staff were all amazing, friendly, attentive and helpful. Requests are dealt with quickly and efficiently. It is a true 5-star experience.
It is a 5 min drive out of Oai, but the hotel have a complimentary shuttle service both ways. We would get the car in (uphill) and walk back (down hill). We never had a wait for a car, however before sunset the roads can be congested so you may have to wait a few minutes.
The only improvements we would suggest the hotel consider is to improve its sustainability. It does mention a number of points in the website such as not having single use plastic but this was not the case. They use plastic water bottles for the turn down service and by the pool. Like many other leading sustainable hotels they should consider having a water filter, where guests can refill their own bottles (or loaned), and they could use filtered water at breakfast instead of bottled, which uses glass and has a higher carbon footprint.
We did have a small challenge in requesting no cleaning. This was a Covid safety measure, offered at check in, which we took up, as it is also the more sustainable, and less intrusive option. However our room was “turned down” that night, and the housekeeping team both attempted to access our room while we were getting ready the next morning, and cleaned our room later that morning. We spoke to reception and it didn’t happen again but better communication with reception and house keeping is needed.
Overall a wonderful hotel with magical views and fantastic staff. Would highly recommend.

Fortunately, we planned our vacation such that Santorini was our last stop and not Mykonos. Albeit beautiful, Mykonos was a bit clubby, tourist trappy and adolescent, while Santorini was picturesque, more family oriented, and had Canaves Oia Epitome.

The service from start to finish at Epitome was consummate. Everyone was warm and professional when we arrived, and the seamless experience continued for the length of our six days.

Epitome excels at prompt, friendly service, especially if you can contact them via WhatsApp as part of your daily routine. If we needed breakfast brought to the room or other room service, or even to set up the bellboy baggage pickup, WhatsApp was the most efficient way to do so, rather than trying to find and remember the right extension to call. Calling worked well when I did it, but travelers look for the easiest solutions to their travel and comfort needs and they were very responsive on WhatsApp. This was even better when texting them we needed a shuttle to pick us up while walking back from Oia’s downtown area and could simply text the front desk when we anticipated we needed a ride back to the resort.

Additionally, Epitome had the brilliant foresight of hiring a “child activity manager”, something I have not seen at many other resorts. Not merely a babysitter, this person - warmly occupied by Vasso - found creative activities to engage our child and others during our stay. Needless to say, this gave me and the wife some time to catch up, rest and plan some of our daily tours with the knowledgeable concierge. In another instance, Vasso watched our child for a few hours while we went to a beautiful dinner at Lycabettus in town.

Furthermore, their food is of great quality and their breakfast is convenient and poolside. Their signature restaurant Elements, was a great coda to our trip. We enjoyed a prix fixe meal (they also offer a la cart) in front of a staggering sunset for our final dinner.

I can’t recommend Canaves Oia Epitome enough. This resort elevated our Santorini experience.

We recently stayed in one of the honeymoon suites at the Canaves Oia Epitome and absolutely loved our stay. The hotel is a 10 minute walk up to town (or the hotel provides a shuttle) and a 10 minute walk down to Ammoudi Bay. There are great sunset views and the food is fantastic. We had an incredible degustation menu at Elements, the fine dining restaurant, that was one of our favorite all time dining experiences. Service was superb and the rooms were great. My only compliant was that the lighting in the room was all controlled by control panels at various places throughout the room and at night, the glow from these control panels was so bright I needed to use a sleep mask (I'm a light sleeper). The knobs in the shower also made it hard to grip to open the door from the inside when wet.

Where do I start? This resort is truly beautiful in a clean, understated way. The common areas are spotless with lovely landscaping, welcoming furniture, sparkling pools and beautiful views! From the moment you walk in, the reception staff greets you with a smile and your bags are stored and brought to you shortly after you get to your room. The check in process is easy. They offer you a welcome drink and sit down with you to explain the resort’s amenities. They then walk you to your room. We had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us in our room, which was a nice surprise . We had a one bedroom villa with a private pool. It was spacious and very comfortable. I loved the shower and the bathroom amenities. The pool was beautiful and cool enough to be refreshing, but not too cold. Breakfast every morning was so good and relaxing. The food is delicious, and the staff is amazing. They ask you the first morning if you have any food allergies, which I do, and they remember it every morning. Everything we ate was delicious, but be sure to try the green juice. It’s so good! We ate dinner at the same restaurant as breakfast (Omnia) twice. Again the service and food are unbelievable! They know their wine pairings too, so be sure to ask what they recommend. We had the most beautiful sunsets while dining there too, which was an added bonus. Housekeeping comes twice a day, and they do such a great job. It’s so nice to come back to your room in the evening with fresh towels in the bathroom and slippers and water by your bed. The staff at this resort do so many things right (you can tell they go through a lot of training), but it’s all of the little things added up that make this resort truly special! It’s no surprise that they continually rank as one of the best resorts in the world. A true gem in beautiful Santorini!

Overall, this turned out to be the best hotel in which we have ever stayed, and we have stayed in luxury hotels all around the world. The reason was simple: the room with a pool and multiple sitting areas, a perfect sunset view, and a great breakfast. After exploring the tourist areas via a short free shuttle, we spent the rest of our stay at the hotel relaxing. The hotel is in a newer development area that requires a car or shuttle to access. If your plan is to explore Santorini or to stay in the Caldera, don't stay here. If your plan is to relax and enjoy a brand new property and watch the sunset, this is the place for you.

Highlights: the room with the pool (very high end windows with shutters, bathroom, sitting areas). Breakfast. The sunset view.

Lowlights: Elements restaurant would have been great if not for the prices. There were hits and misses but at those prices we expected Michelin star (starters were exceptional, main dishes were average at best, cocktails were innovative but not that tasty). The road, which was right in front of our room, was also annoying, but they hid it well with shrubbery. It is not a busy road, just noisy when a car or construction truck drives by.

In summary, this was a stunning new hotel in Santorini off the beaten path. Come here to relax, not to run around. Splurge for a room with its own pool - if you don't, I could see the property being just another (nice) hotel room.

We had been looking forward to this stay for over a year. The service was great and the property itself was fresh and beautiful. The major downside was the location. The main pool is adjacent to a busy road so you constantly see and hear cars pass and park literally feet away from you. Also the view from our room faced a parking lot and power lines. It really took away from the idyllic setting.

You have to take a shuttle to Oia. While it’s not a far walk, the road is steep and dangerous to walk in the dark. So anytime you want to stroll around Oia or have dinner, you have to coordinate with the shuttle. There is no caldera view which we knew in advance and didn’t think we would mind. But after visiting, the caldera really is the highlight of Santorini. Without it the property could have been on any coast in Greece.

We had stayed the prior 2 days at their sister property the Canaves Oia suites and honestly the Epitome pales in comparison. The view, service, and location of the Canaves Oia Suites was far superior. Probably if we hadn’t stayed there first and if we had a room with a better view, we may have a better opinion. Overall the stay was nice but not exceptional. If this is your once in a lifetime trip to Santorini and you’re willing to spring for a luxury hotel in Oia, stay in Canaves Oia or one of the other many 5 star hotels with a Caldera view and walking distance to restaurants and shops for the true Santorini experience.

Thank you for taking time to share your opinion with us. We do provide the shuttle service to Oia for our guests in order to avoid walking this road. In general Epitome is a lot different than Suites as they are located in different areas of Oia. Suites have Caldera views while Epitome enjoyed sunset views - which is very rare for Oia properties, so it's a subjective matter. In any case, we thank you for the positive feedback

Stayed here with my husband for a week to have a good rest. This was absolute perfection!!
The hotel is beautiful and the location stunning - the most extraordinary sunsets each evening - looking out over the glorious sea.
We had a private villa with its own terrace and pool so enjoyed great privacy but when we came into the main hotel areas we were charmed by the greeting we received from every single member of the staff. Without exception all of the staff are outstanding - courteous, friendly and so efficient. The reception staff were extremely helpful and provided lots of advice about where to visit, eating recommendations and what to see. the 24 hour shuttle bus from the hotel into Oia is such a great benefit and Oia is a pretty and delightful town with lots of great restaurants and shops and it is a few minutes drive away.

Particular praise for the wonderful Sommelier Reina who gave us lots of information and help with choosing wines as we were keen to enjoy some local wines from the area. Superb English and such a charming young lady. Also special mention to our breakfast waitress Nikki. After two mornings she had memorised exactly how we wanted out hot drinks, what fruit we wanted on our fruit plate, what juice I favoured and everything in between. She brightened up our mornings with her sunny smile and was an absolute pleasure to meet.

No suggestions as to how to improve this absolutely perfect hotel.

My wife and I stayed at Epitome on the last stop of our babymoon, and it was the best decision we could have made. The location was perfect as it was just far enough from the hustle of the more popular tourist destinations, but close enough so that everything we wanted to do was easily within reach. The team there was able to upgrade us to a honeymoon suite at no additional charge. Throughout our stay, every staff member made it their mission to ensure that we were completely at ease and had nothing to worry about. Dinner reservations were made, taxis/shuttles were arranged for us, sailing excursions were booked, etc. All of their recommendations were excellent, and the fact that we had an incredible time in Santorini was thanks in large part to them. When we return to Santorini, we cannot wait to stay with them again.
