Low-rise, all-suite resort overlooking peaceful Pissouri Bay
Following a recent multi-million-pound refurbishment in 2017, Colombia Beach Resort is looking better than ever. Small, intimate and uniquely designed to resemble a traditional Cypriot village, this oasis of serenity boasts expansive views of the shimmering Mediterranean Sea.
There’s so much to keep you occupied here. Take to the waters for sailing, kite-surfing and kayaking adventures. Back on dry land, there are cycling and hiking tours, cooking classes and cultural excursions to visit Paphos’ Roman mosaics on offer. Or simply settle into a good book on one of the loungers that are dotted around the sweeping gardens.
While children are fully engaged at the excellent Den Kids Club, parents can slow the pace with a treatment at the Hebe Spa, where the indoor lagoon seamlessly connects with the resort’s outdoor 80-metre infinity pool.
Taste authentic Cypriot fare at the Apollo Tavern or go gourmet Italian at Bacchus - the enhanced dining options will satiate a wide range of tastes. You can also eat at Il Buchetto trattoria, located just outside the resort. With its cobbled pathway, wooden decking and homemade food in a warm and cosy atmosphere, it makes for a pleasingly rustic alternative to the hotel’s sophisticated culinary offerings.
The 169 spacious suites come in different shapes and sizes, but we particularly like gazing out to sea from the elegant Executive Suites. Head to the resort’s eastern side for contemporary style, while the rustic wooden furniture and tiled floors of the western suites create a more traditional feel. If you’re travelling with the family, there’s an array of interconnecting and two-bedroom options to choose from.
