Overview

Nestled in the embrace of the Blue Flag, 2km long Pissouri Bay – a peaceful and pastoral area situated a mere 20 minutes from both Paphos and Limassol – the five-star Columbia Beach Resort has earned an identity for itself within the island’s wider hospitality sphere that is synonymous with exclusivity and exceptionality: in facilities, service, and (above all) experience.

It is not just the secluded location, rustic architecture, and 169 lovingly appointed suites that continue to charm, but guests feel as if they’re coming home. This five-star, all-suite resort has established itself as the crème de la crème of the island’s hospitality offerings. Intimate, quaint, authentic, pastoral, and personal: the resort has long served as a serene space, a refuge, and thus it is no surprise that the worldwide-revered Small Luxury Hotels of the World welcomed Columbia Beach Resort into its boutique collection. Unrivalled for space along Pissouri Bay – being the only hospitality option of its kind here – the resort has come to embody the ethereal and awe-inspiring nature of Pissouri.

Driven dynamically by dialogue with guests, the resort underwent a metamorphosis: a landmark renovation, in 2017. Columbia Beach Resort is now spread over 75,000 m²; offering guests a new level of space and luxury. Columbia Beach Resort further enhanced its long-revered dining offerings with the addition of 2 restaurants and 3 bars. A dedicated children’s menu is also on hand throughout the resort.

Delivering experience – the opportunity to try new activities, explore the local area, or even simply enjoy quality time with loved ones – has always been core to Columbia Beach Resort’s identity. Now, with the resort’s fortification, guests can choose from a variety of activities, including cycling and hiking tours, watersports, sailing, scuba diving, golf, cooking lessons, wine tasting, yoga, and more.

Meanwhile, for those seeking quality time with their loved ones, the resort now boasts two swimming pools: one (to the west) is ideal for quiet relaxation that couples will no doubt enjoy, and the other (to the east) is perfectly poised to cater to families looking to engage in a few games.

Accommodation

As individual as you: each of the 169 exclusive suites are unique, offering not only unsurpassed comfort and elegant furnishings but also unforgettable views. Guests are welcomed into a world of comfort and well-being, enriched by elegant furnishings and fine attention to detail.

There are a total of six restaurants and bars, all uniquely positioned to cater to guests’ wants and needs. Whether indulging in local flavours brought brilliantly to life with international nuances at the Apollo Tavern, or spoiling yourself with the finely-balanced, delectable tastes and aromas springing forth from Bacchus Italian Gourmet Restaurant’s kitchen, all diners are treated with the utmost care and respect as they embark on their culinary journey. Meanwhile, all our restaurants’ decors have been developed in tandem with their flavour profiles to engender a holistic dining experience.

Not in the habit of overlooking its younger guests, children are treated to their own special menu – their first foray into the world of gastronomy – whilst the team of stellar chefs is on hand and happy to cater to any special dietary requirements guests may hav, as well as cater to a special event, be it a relaxed barbeque along the seafront, or a private dinner for two.

Apollo Tavern
Rustic and inviting, Apollo Tavern is blessed with both an abundant menu to suit all tastes, and a key location overlooking Columbia Beach Resort’s lush, green lawns, and the rolling hills of Cape Aspro descending into the azure sea. Open for both lunch and dinner, Apollo Tavern’s speciality is in providing a traditional Cypriot dining experience, courtesy of its rich and sumptuous meze: a vast array of small dishes that are shared amongst the table giving diners insight into the full breadth and depth of the ever-evolving menu. Heavily influenced by cuisine typical to the Eastern Mediterranean, the Chefs’ creativity is nevertheless unbound, and steadfast staples – such as salads, soups, pasta and risotto dishes – are served alongside grilled meats and fish, and exquisitely traditional fare.

Atrium Restaurant
Start your day with a verve befitting a five-star holiday by breakfasting at Atrium Restaurant, a space accented by warm woods and atmospheric lighting. Situate yourselves at one of the neatly lain tables along the elevated veranda, behold the breathtaking view of the azure sea, and prepare to gorge on the lavish breakfast spread provided fresh daily. From baked goods and cereals to fresh fruit, à la minute fare, and some local favourites (namely, Columbia Beach Resort’s famed halloumi bread), there is something to tempt every palate. During the cooler months, Atrium Restaurant may also serve as your dinner haven; serving gourmet themed buffets, with a backdrop of refined musical entertainment and attentive service will ensure an inimitable dining experience.

Bacchus Italian Gourmet Restaurant 
Named after the mythical Greek god of wine and mystical ecstasy. A celebration of Italian cuisine – putting diners closely in touch with regional specialities from across Italy – Bacchus is a truly inviting space, with its high ceilings, elegant furnishings, and welcoming staff. Whether sat inside, or along our sun-drenched terrace next to the palm-fringed pool, diners may sway to the soft sounds of live Italian music, whilst leisurely perusing the rich menu. Bacchus' à la carte menu has been carefully created by the resort’s award-winning, Michelin Star-trained Executive Chef, Ioannis Giakoumidis, who is unfailingly driven by passion, imagination, and sincerity in sharing his love of food with guests.

Cape Aspro Pool Bar & Restaurant

Satiating the desire for a refreshing beverage in the hot summer months has never been easier, as guests can enjoy the swim-up feature of Cape Aspro Pool Bar, sipping on a chilled drink whilst relaxing in the swimming pool. As day turns to night, guests can savour an exotic cocktail on the ‘land’ side of the bar adjacent to the pool, the perfect place from which to behold the kaleidoscope of colours as the sun begins to set. A brand new menu is dedicated to offering guests seafood-centric sharing platters. Providing guests with a mouth-watering journey of Mediterranean-inspired delights, Cape Aspro uses the very best of the region’s seafood with dishes expertly created by the Resort’s Executive Chef, Ioannis Giakoumidis. This new menu provides a more relaxed dining option with little yet luscious sharing plates that allow guests to choose a selection of delicacies to taste test. Cape Aspro’s unique sharing plates include Cypriot inspired dishes such as ‘Ouzo Bites’ as well as more recognised Mediterranean classics. A table at Cape Aspro restaurant is highly coveted in the warmer months thanks to its elevated position overlooking the bay. 

Eros Cocktail Bar

Further distinguished by its panoramic views of the resort’s landmark lagoon pool, and the Bay of Pissouri, a full menu is on hand, spanning cocktails, wines, spirits, hot and cold coffees, tea, and fresh juice. At select times of the year, Eros Cocktail Bar plays home to a series of special events, such as Afternoon Tea.

Ouzeri
No visit to Cyprus is complete without sampling the famed anise-flavoured aperitif, ouzo, alongside a traditional meze (small plates providing for a full taste of the menu, akin to the Spanish tapas). Wanting to ensure that guests are granted full access to life in Cyprus, the resident Ouzeri bar is on hand, serving a selection of ouzo, zivania (a locally-produced grape-based spirit), wines, and more, to accompany guests’ meals.

Poseidon Beach Bar 
Let the breeze caress your skin, and the sound of the waves soothe your tired mind: welcome to Poseidon Beach Bar, an oasis of nature on the sea’s shore. As you soak in the warm colours of the sunset sprawling out along the horizon, sample hot and cold snacks, thirst-quenching, cool drinks, and heavenly ice cream.

Availing of the 80 metre-long lagoon pool will no doubt inspire a hunger that Poseidon Pool Bar is perfectly positioned to satiate. With a swim-up feature, placing your order has never been easier. Choose from a range of flavoursome delicacies, cool drinks, ice creams, and more: nourishment for the next lap, perhaps?

The Seven C’s is a nautically-themed elegant bar, where you are invited to enjoy one of the choice cocktails or select from our assortment of wines and fresh juices. Mouth-watering snacks and scrumptious ice cream, as well as the famous Cyprus coffee, are all available here, too – or if you prefer an Italian coffee, you must try the cappuccino with Columbia’s unique signature sailboat design.
