Our favourite rooms
Adapted from the existing caves, rooms take their design cues from Santorini’s clean, whitewashed aesthetic; some have antique wooden furniture, bespoke Italian sofas, carved headboards or decorative mirrors. Top marks go to the Honeymoon Suite, for its meandering, river-like plunge pool, reached by steps from the bathroom.
Meandering into a rock-hewn cave, the hotel's infinity pool is small but blissfully shaded; get cosy at the swim-up bar with your fellow guests and order something artfully mixed and perfectly chilled.
None, but you can use the spa at Canaves Oia Suites, the hotel's blissful sister property, a short stroll away.
No Santorini capsule wardrobe should be without glamorous shades and flat grippy sandals.
Leave the little Smiths at home: this made-for-romance hotel is a grown-up retreat.
