The positive influence of iodine on human health is widely known. This element is essential for the normal functioning of an organism. It determines the functioning of thyroid, hormones produced by which are responsible for the right growth and adolescence, the nervous, muscular and circulatory systems, it regulates metabolism.
The concentration of iodine in the air is up to a hundred times higher at the sea than inlands. It is also much higher at the Baltic coast than at the Mediterranean or Black Sea.

When spending time directly at the sea, we inhale the so-called “sea-aerosol”. It treats cold, bronchus and lungs inflammatory, allergies, asthmatic illnesses, it helps strengthening immunity. The positive effect of the “aerosol” is noticeable up to 300 meters from the sea, and the strongest up to 150 meters.
Our aim is to prepare best possible conditions for our guests, so that they could benefit from what our surrounding has to offer. Because of the fact, that we are located only 70 meters from the sea, very near to the dunes, a walk to the beach takes literally a minute and is not an expedition one has to prepare for. It also causes, that the therapeutic effect of iodine is intensive also at the area of Columbus and that children running around our playground may benefit from it. In our kitchen we use local products rich in iodine (vegetables, fish from Rowy harbour). The silence around us, comfortable apartments, studios and suits, a wide SPA offer – all those factors make Columbus a perfect place to rest and relax.
Columbus – improve your health and fitness at the sea!
