We partnered up with luxury swimwear brand Heidi Klein to showcase the gorgeous Santorini resort of Canaves Oia Epitome as well as their latest HS18 collection. Sisters Janine and Julia travelled to the island for a weekend in the sun, and discovered why the luxury resort is the subject of so many holiday photos. Read on for more on their experience...
Canaves Oia is an idyllic resort in Santorini that embodies classic Grecian architecture with a luxury twist. This luxury resort is famed for its breathtaking panoramas, chic style, and world-class spa.
At Canaves Oia the group relaxed in the resort’s fashionable surroundings, enjoying the stylish interiors and minimalist décor that the resort is famous for. Set in 17th century canaves (caves), with panoramic views from every window, Oia itself is one of the most photographed places in Greece, and as you can see the hotel was the perfect setting for some truly inspirational photoshoots.
During their stay, Julia and Janine stayed in a Grande Suite which epitomised the chic and spacious feel of Canaves Oia. With two king-size bedrooms, a separate living space and private veranda with open-air plunge pool and views of the volcano, this truly was a luxury getaway.
With so much to do at Canaves Oia the girls could barely tear themselves away from the hotel. From cocktails by the pool to traditional Greek dining at Petra Gourmet Restaurant as the sun sets, there is plenty to try for foodies at the resort. As health-conscious and vegan bloggers, a real highlight of the trip was discovering the fresh, local and healthy dishes on offer. The delicious breakfast with views over the Aegean Sea was an unforgettable experience.
To celebrate the end of their trip, Julia and Janine were also taken out for a sunset boat trip. Not only was this a great way to toast the weekend, but a boat trip is also a fantastic way to see the stunning Santorini landscape and even spot some dolphins… not to mention there were plenty of opportunities to take some stunning photographs.
Building on its success as one of the most fashionable destinations in Santorini, Canaves Oia has now launched Canaves Oia Epitome to encapsulate a totally different style of luxury. With just 24 villas, each boasting a private pool, and a secluded location above the fishing town of Ammoudi, this is a fantastic place to relax whilst still having Santorini on your doorstep. Epitome itself is walking distance from the beach and those wishing to explore Oia town will enjoy the complimentary shuttle service. It is this brilliant mix of tranquillity and convenience that makes the resort a superb choice for a romantic couples holiday and a fantastic location for family holidays, too.
Epitome’s design is inspired by the traditional Cycladic architectural style, and guests will find a beautiful beach just a short stroll away. The location is superb, with plenty of unspoilt landscape and total tranquillity. The infinity pool and sunset lounge each offer spectacular views, while the American Champagne Buffet, which takes place each day, adds a touch of decadence. Every guest benefits from butler service and the personalised concierge facility, though those looking for the ultimate in opulence can opt for the VIP butler service.
