Columbia Beach Resort Pissouri
Situated in the peaceful Bay of Pissouri, Columbia Beach Resort radiates the charm and character of traditional Cypriot architecture, with low-rise buildings, honey-coloured stone walls and quaint archways leading to vibrant grounds and a golden sandy beach.
Tucked away amid rolling hillsides and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the property feels secluded and exclusive, with 169 suites designed in harmony with the surrounding landscape, each with a private balcony and either garden, pool or azure sea views.
Food and drink are something of a focal point here, with three restaurants, six bars (including a swim-up pool bar) and an in-house bakery keeping guests well fuelled for days lazing in the sun. Everything from the island’s freshest seafood to sharing plates of local mezze is available in resort, and both half-board and full-board options are available.
Children can make new friends and learn new skills ay the kids’ club and creche, where they can turn their hands to anything from tennis and basketball to watersports, cooking and learning to speak Greek.
Adults, meanwhile, can relax at the Hébe Spa, go diving among shipwrecks and underwater reefs, tee off at no fewer than four nearby golf courses (including one designed by Nick Faldo), explore the island by bike, or take to the water in any number of different ways, from windsurfing and wakeboarding to kayaking and jet-skiing.
