Canaves Oia Ranks on Travel + Leisure’s Most Romantic Hotels in the World

Every year, Travel + Leisure readers weigh on on their travel experiences across the globe, sharing opinions on their favourite hotels, resorts, cities, islands, airlines and more.

And it seems readers love Canaves Oia in Santorini, Greece, as they ranked it among the 50 most romantic hotels in the world.

It’s easy to see why. As the magazine puts it, “The town of Oia may already be a slam-dunk for romance, with its white-washed buildings and deep-blue waters, but this resort doubles down on dreamy ambiance.

“Built within a 17th-century cave complex, Canaves enchants guests with private plunge pools and over-the-top experiences like helicopter tours.”

But that’s not all. At the Canaves Oia Spa, couples can enjoy a famous Rasul treatment combining precious mineral muds, fresh fruit extracts and fragrant herbs. Pure bliss.

Of course, no romantic retreat is complete without delectable dining, and Petra Restaurant serves everything from a sumptuous champagne breakfast to an intimate dinner under the stars.

Meanwhile, the Infinity Pool Bar is one of the most gram-worthy settings around, not to mention the top spot for fantastic cocktails.

Then there’s Santorini—a honeymoon island dotted with lovely little shops, multicoloured beaches and blue domed churches—right outside Canaves Oia’s doors.

It’s no wonder the property received flawless marks from Travel + Leisure readers.

What better way to celebrate your love than by visiting this summer?


Go to and book your stay in Santorini’s most romantic hotel (and indeed the world).
