Columbia Beach Resort, Pissouri
by Grove Travel
I recently got the chance to experience a weekend in Cyprus in the resort of Pissouri, which is between Paphos and Limassol. Here are my thoughts…………….
We arrived in Cyprus to some lovely Winter sunshine and it was 21st November- beautiful!
After a 30 minute transfer to the Columbia Beach Resort we settled into our suites and sat on the terrace overlooking the sea and enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Apollo taverna of local specialities, fresh squid, halloumi, fresh breads, olives all washed down with a glass of cold rose.
The suites in the hotel are very spacious and include all the luxuries you would expect of a 5* hotel, Molton Brown toiletries, turn down service and there is even a Nespresso machine.
The hotel is on a small pebbly beach with its own sunbeds and umbrellas, watersports are available in high season and the hotel also has a cycling club and courtesy bus service to 2 golf courses in Limassol for the more energetic of you!
Of course I tested the spa while I was there and enjoyed an amazing massage with the Elemis products that are used. I also had a swim in the indoor pool and a relaxing Jacuzzi, I would definitely recommend that you visit the spa. It’s a lovely relaxing place to read and sit even if you don’t like spa treatments, with its low lighting and candles its very calming.
There is an a la carte restaurant , Bacchus which is Italian themed if you fancy something a bit different and this doubles as the breakfast restaurant which has a lovely terrace by the pool so you can eat your scrambled egg, smoked salmon and champagne in the sunshine.
There is also The Eros cocktail bar which opens on to the upstairs terrace with views of the sea, it does a lovely Mojito and Kir Royale……well I have to test these things , it’s my job!
The hotel is quite isolated so if you are looking to explore I would recommend car hire, alternatively sit back, relax and enjoy the service and a short stroll along the beach.
If you are looking for a short break with the added touch of luxury then the Columbia Beach Resort is the place for you , alternatively you could combine as a 2 centre for a longer break.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
