Canaves Oia wins big with Travel + Leisure

Honeymoon heaven-on-earth Canaves Oia passes the post in a bid to win two prestigious titles for the 2019 Travel + Leisure awards.

The secret ingredient for this flourishing, boutique brand is its smallest and newest property, Canaves Oia Epitome.

This small-scale 24 villa property has exceeded all expectations since opening in May last year. Paving its way to international acclaim, the dazzling property has now bagged ‘Best Resort in Europe’ and  ‘Best Resort in Greece’ in the Travel + Leisure awards

Such ground-breaking accolades after mere months of being in business are regarded a hallmark of hospitality excellence - with its five-star plunge pools, private alfresco dining options and overall value being celebrated.

The newcomer offers an unbeatable position on Santorini, within walking distance to Oia’s Katharos Beach. Perched above the picturesque fishing town of Ammoudi, views include the impressive whitewashed buildings and the cerulean blue sea.

Its infancy aside, Canaves is no stranger to attention as the group has reached number one in Condé Nast Traveler’s ‘Top 30 Resorts in Europe’ and was once placed #34 in the category of ‘Top 100 Hotels and Resorts in the world’.
