Located on the blue flag-honoured coast of Pissouri Bay, between Paphos and Limassol, and reached by a winding mountain road with incredible views, Columbia Beach Resort offers a truly authentic taste of Cypriot charm. But there’s more to this Mediterranean rock than sun and sand. According to legend, Cyprus is the birthplace of Aphrodite – the ancient goddess of love – making it the perfect honeymoon destination for newlyweds.
Honeymoon Review: Columbia Beach Resort in Cyprus
Intimate, quaint, authentic, pastoral, and personal: the complex inhabits its own private section of beach, promising a sun-drenched refuge from the demands of everyday life. And continuing the resort’s traditional Cypriot rustic-cum-contemporary theme, accommodation is a cosy home-away-from-home yet luxurious at the same time.
Just taking in the stunning views over the Mediterranean from the 80-metre long lagoon pool – with the occasional visit to the poolside bar – is enough to keep even the most demanding couple occupied.
