While international travel might be a little up in the air right now (pun intended), there’s still nothing nicer than drooling over design-led hotel interiors while we plan our next getaway. And there’s officially nowhere more jaw-dropping than the Canaves Oia Epitome resort, which has just received two major nods at Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2020 – the number one resort hotel in Europe and the top resort hotel in Greece.
The newest addition to the Canaves Oia property portfolio, Canaves Oia Epitome was also labelled the 7th best hotel on the planet and Canaves Oia Boutique Hotel was ranked #76 in the world.
All 24 suites and villas of Canaves Oia Epitome represent a synergy of spacious accommodation with uncompromising quality and service, and those soul-affirming views.

The team at K-Studio designed the new Canaves Oia Epitome, and took advantage of the unique opportunity of the site; the prime Caldera location but without the usual spatial restrictions.
Local stone-clad additions to each room strategically extend the sense of space and blend the boundary between indoor and outdoor living as well as with the surrounding landscape. They brought together a beautiful pared-back colour palette, dominated by the extensive use of heavy, black local Santorinian stone.
