    | Sunday Suites, A Oia Gem

    Nestled in the heart of Oia, Santorini, Canaves Sunday Suites is one of the newest additions to the island’s cosmopolitan offering. The boutique hotel gem is positioned in just the right spot on one of the highest points boasting spectacular views of the Caldera, Volcano and beautiful Oia town.

    Built in 2016, Sunday Suites sees traditional meet modern with the luxury establishment staying true to the cave-like manner in which hotels in Santorini are designed. But also adding a contemporary touch through-out design elements and interior finishes.

    We were welcomed and shown to our suite, 1A, one of the higher-up rooms. Sunday Suites consists of only 8 luxurious cave suites, so it really is as boutique as they come. What struck me walking into our suite was how it felt like each piece had been placed there as an individual element. It felt homely not duplicated – almost as if it were a private apartment and not a hotel.

    The suite had soft tones and was open, to allow the most light in and the unbelievable view – you really can’t get use to that. It opens up to a patio and obviously this was where we chose to enjoy our “welcome sorbet” after checking in.


    Sitting out there on the suite patio for the remainder of the day I was completely mesmerized by the view. Here we were, hanging on the side of the majestic caldera. How insane, we were actually chilling in the centre of picturesque Oia. A place I had seen all over the web, that was one of the destinations I had put on that travel list you embed in your mind. It was a dream and I definitely wasn’t going to take a moment for granted.

    That famous Oia sunset that everyone chases can be captured perfectly from Sunday Suites. It must be one of the world’s most popular sunset locations, people physically stand in line to get that perfect backdrop shot. Fortunately up on the Sunday Suites roof top you can see it clearly, finding yourself lost in what seems an endless twilight. Twilight is hands down my favourite time of day….

    Waking up to the beauty surrounding could not have been more perfectly matched – breakfast was divine! You decide the evening before what you’d like served in the morning from a list of scrumptious breakfast options. You can also choose whether you’d like it served in your suite, on your private patio or down by the pool. Whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong.

    The convenience of staying at Canaves Sunday Suites is you have all the major Oia attractions on your door step. Reason to explore is a stone’s throw away – with the many restaurants and cafes, the church domes that have caught massive internet coverage, the little stores and local curios, right around the corner. There are also no cars in that part of town so there are no streets as such, just paths to walk on. We did our fair share of missioning around, but I still feel there was even more we could have seen.

    Time spent in Oia is enchanting. Whether you choose to relax and unwind by the pool, read a good book on your patio or surf the web, time spent at Canaves Sunday Suites is time spent well and wisely. Oia will see me again, of that I am sure! 😉
