Open: All Year Round... 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.



General Information

The warmest of welcomes to Columbia Beach Resort.

Nestled in the embrace of the Blue Flag-honoured, 2km-long Pissouri Bay – a peaceful and pastoral area situated a mere 20 minutes from both Paphos and Limassol respectively – 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.
 
Indeed, the Columbia Family remains firm in its conviction that it is not just our secluded location, rustic architecture, and 169 lovingly appointed suites that continue to charm, but our sincere want to welcome our guests as if they’re coming home.
 
It is the deliverance of hospitality with inimitable heart.

Location

Nestled in the embrace of the Blue Flag-honoured, 2km-long Pissouri Bay – a peaceful and pastoral area situated a mere 20 minutes from both Paphos and Limassol respectively – 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.

Food & Beverages

A gourmet’s haven, Columbia Beach Resort’s Executive Chef, Ioannis Giakoumidis, works tirelessly to ensure that our culinary creations are always fresh, and that your appetites are always satisfied. For some, the art of gastronomy may be a passing trend: for us, it is our way of life.

Embellishing our quaint Resort 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 our 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 upmost care and respect as they embark on their culinary journeys with us.
 
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 our team of stellar chefs is on hand and happy to cater to any special dietary requirements our guests may have (including gluten free), as well as cater to a special event, be it a relaxed barbeque along the seafront, or a private dinner for two.

Further to Bed & Breakfast, guests are welcome to stay on a Half Board or Full Board basis, details of which may be found in the Dining Supplements section below.

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 specialty 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, our 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 will 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
Our Bacchus Italian Gourmet Restaurant is named after the mythical Greek god of wine and mystical ecstasy. 
A celebration of Italian cuisine – putting diners closely in touch with regional specialties 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 our 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 our guests.
Bacchus is also the site at which guests are invited to enjoy their daily sumptuous breakfast, bursting with both sweet and savoury delights spanning a selection of home-made breads and pastries, cereals, fresh fruits, pancakes, waffles, eggs made to order, sparkling wine, and more.

CAPE ASPRO RESTAURANT & POOL BAR
Named for the white cliffs (aspro meaning ‘white’ in Greek) that embrace Pissouri Bay, Cape Aspro Pool Bar & Restaurant make for the ultimate in al fresco dining, expressive of the joys of island living.
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.
As of May 2018, we have introduced a sharing seafood concept, with a brand new menu 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.
