Columbia Beach Resort, Cyprus

Columbia Beach Resort

Located in the curve of Pissouri Bay, Columbia Beach Resort offers guests luxurious accommodation and high-end facilities. The property is presented with Cypriot architecture in mind, with a series of stone-walled buildings topped with traditionally tiled roofs running along the seafront akin to a small coastal village.

The 169 generously sized suites are located across a range of different buildings. While they are decorated with a clean, modern finish with plush bedding and tiled floors, each suite is finished with touches of Cypriot character, including woven rugs and wooden beams running along the ceilings. All suites have a balcony or terrace, with views of the pool, gardens or sea.

The expansive grounds, dotted with lush palm groves and vibrant bougainvillea blooms, offer a wide range of facilities and dining options. Three restaurants serve seafood, Mediterranean cuisine, and Asian dishes, while bar options include a swim-up pool bar and a beach bar, among others.

A highlight is the beach itself — a sandy stretch of coastline right at the front of the property with comfortable loungers and a range of water sports. The indoor-outdoor pool allows guests to swim from the indoor Hebe Spa to an outside area lined with palm trees overlooking the sea. The spa also houses a Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, treatment rooms, relaxation area and gym. Fitness classes are available, as well as tennis and squash courts. For families, there is a range of children-friendly activities and a kids’ club.
