Overview

Framed by the white cliffs of Pissouri Bay, luxurious Columbia Beach Resort is perfect for a spa holiday in Europe. Relax on the sandy Blue flag beach and enjoy the knock-out central swimming pool and great range of fitness activities. The architecture is traditionally Cypriot with local stone and terracotta tiles and there’s a welcoming and friendly vibe. The resort undertook a landmark renovation in 2017 (merging with its sister hotel next door) so you have plenty of dining options from casual to formal as well as rejuvenating spa treatments to enjoy. Cyprus is sunny for most of the year and the surrounding landscape has much to explore from Byzantine churches to archaeological sites.

When to go

Columbia Beach Resort enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate. The average summer temperature is 30 degrees with July and August being the hottest months. The average winter temperate is 16 degrees and the coolest months are January and February.
