Information on Accomodation

Cyprus, the Isle of Aphrodite, is bathed by the azure waters of the Eastern Mediterranean and is blessed with mild winters and warm sunny summers. The island offers excellent beaches, rugged mountains, green forests and lush valleys. The harmonious blend of old and new is ever present with the profusion of ancient archaeological sites cohabiting side-by-side with modern infrastructure and an efficient communication network.

Cyprus is renowned for its hospitality and indeed its friendly people are always ready to give a warm welcome and a big smile. It is almost impossible to get lost as the sea is almost always visible and provides an unforgettable landmark.

The Columbia Beach Resort Pissouri

This exclusive all suite five star resort ambles gently upward from the sparkling waters of the bay following the natural incline of the landscape so that most suites have a spectacular sea view and many also look out over the 80m lagoon-style swimming pool, which is the central feature guarded by towering palm trees.

All that is best in Cypriot architecture and local materials has been used. Sloping roofs and graceful arches are predominant, as is the use of natural wood and stone, and the specially reclaimed terracotta roof tiles give the whole project a nicely aged and traditional look. All suites have shuttered windows, heavy wooden doors and large covered balconies.Paved pathways, shaded by bougainvillea and olive trees, meander throughout the resort around the traditional taverna and ouzeri, past the quaint little Chapel of All Saints and on down to the beach.

Conferences of up to 325 delegates and smaller meetings can be accommodated in the Oval Conference Hall or in any of the breakout rooms. State-of-the-art conferencing equipment and different business services are available. The Business Centre offers a full range of facilities, and all suites have a socket for Internet connection.
