You’d think we’d be jaded – once you’ve seen one jaw-dropping infinity pool, you’ve seen them all – but when it comes to impossibly romantic Santorini hotels, we can still be charmed. Meet Canaves Oia Hotel & Suites, our latest Aegean find.

This corker of a private plunge pool is just one of Canaves Oia’s remarkable liquid assets. A short stroll from the boutique-lined streets of picturesque Oia village, this two-property resort has cleverly worked some memorable soaking spots into its cliff-clinging suites. We love the River Pool Suite, with its meandering waters accessed straight from the bathroom, and the Infinity Pool Suite for its unbeatable caldera views. This whitewashed honeymoon hotspot does a fine line in soul-stirring sunsets and proposal-worthy nooks, too; after a day of touring the island’s black-sand beaches, sun-kissed vineyards and ancient ruins, take a perch at one of the two poolside bars and savour a heady hit of romance.
