Columbia beach Resort, Pissouri Bay
Situated in the sleepy village of Pissouri Bay, the Columbia Beach Resort hotel is a true hideaway, modelled on a traditional Cypriot village.
Adjacent to the shimmering Mediterranean, yet only forty minutes from the Troodos mountains, where Cypriots escape the searing summer temperatures, this 5 star cyprus luxury spa hotels offers sophisticated facilities combined with proximity to the hillside village of Pissouri for an alternative vision of Cypriot hospitality.
Pissouri square, on the hill above the hotel, is tranquil and picturesque and home to one of my favourite tavernas called the Hideaway. Do make an effort to find this little eatery gem, hidden away down a flight of steps as you turn left at the top of the square. If you can't find it, just ask one of the locals.
