Canaves Hotel and Suites Santorini

Canaves Hotel and Suites offers outstanding accommodation and attention to detail…

Description & Location

Canaves Hotel and Suites Santorini is located high on a cliff top at Oia on the north western tip of the Santorini, with spectacular views of the bay and the surrounding islands. You are literally just minutes walk from the upscale boutiques and dining options of Oia Village, one of the most photographed in the entire Mediterranean. The hotel and suites are divided into two sections by the blue-domed Cathedral of Oia. The airport and the port are 20 minutes drive, the lively capital of Thira (Fira in Greek) 15 minutes.


A total of 39 suites split between the two sides of the total resort. They are original 17th century Canaves houses, carved into the rock and originally intended to store the superb wine associated with the island. They have now been transformed into luxury accommodation, with the fines highly individual touches. All rooms face out to the caldera, the volcano and the Aegean Sea. Within the original hotel the accommodation furnishing tends to be more traditional with many antiques, in the newer suite section it is generally more contemporary with flashes of colour.

Within the hotel you have Classic suites which are the entry level in terms of pricing with extended living area within the bedroom, the larger Junior suites which have either open plan bedroom or separate living area, superior suites which have a similar design but with hydro bathtub, honeymoon suites with either private Jacuzzi or plunge pool, and a Grand Suite with two bedrooms and either Jacuzzi or plunge pool.

In the exclusive suite section of the resort you have a selection of Junior suites with either open plan bedroom of separate living room, Superior Suites some of which have loft bedrooms, honeymoon suites with either Jacuzzi or plunge pool, infinity pool suites and a speciality Canaves two bedroom suite.

In addition you have a further selection of majestic 3 bedroom villa, perched at the very top of the cliff with incredible views.

Particularly suggested in combination with your stay would be a catamaran tour as Santorini is just mind blowing from the sea as you view small whitewashed villages literally clinging onto the rock-face, a real experience.

Passport Renewal – Don’t Get Caught Out

Even though the passport office say they can cope with demand at the moment, I have still been told to expect at least 4 /6 weeks for a new passport to arrive. As travel demand increases the longer it will take unless you want to pay extra for fast track…

Click for Booking Terms, Price Guides & Flight Information

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers.
Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.

For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May – June level and about 50% more in Asia.

For the Mediterranean & Canary IslandsCaribbeanArabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.

*For Sri Lanka and Far East we show a per person per night hotel guide, excluding airfare, as arrangements tend to be individually tailored multi-centre itineraries.
