#2 of 108 Speciality lodging in Ericeira
"Because it`s good for my health, I`ve decided to be happy!" (Voltaire) OMASSIM is a small hostel with a very cozy atmosphere and a special touch about it. The Hostel is the perfect place for all kinds of visitors: surfers, beach lovers, yogis, vegetarians and those who cannot stay away from the ocean and for all those who appreciate the special an unique natural and culture surrounding of West Portugal. Our hostel is located in a quiet and lovely residential area of the small village Palhais with an open view over the surrounding green hills. At some meters distance you can find the shops, cafes and restaurants. For those who enjoy some wider variety the small fishing town of Ericeira is found only 3 km away. In less than 20 minutes walk you reach the internationally known surfers beaches of Praia da Ribeira d'Ilhas and Praia dos Coxos, part of the World Surf Reserve of Ericeira. Lisboa is about 40 km away to the South-East. The mild climate, the legendary waves and a coastline with 11 km of beautiful beaches, are the perfect ingredients that made for the past years the region Ericeira-Ribamar a mecca for all surfers and Atlantic lovers. Here, all surfers, whether beginners or world leading surfers, will find their "perfect wave". Those who do not want to surf will also find a lot of activities to enjoy their stay, whether for some relaxing or active holidays, in a breathtaking landscape and atmosphere with the most beautiful and colorful sunsets. With Voltaire's saying in mind, which is OMASSIM's main motto, our hostel is bright and cheerful. Our dining and living room is the perfect meeting point to take breakfast, meals or simply relax and hang out. In the meditation and movement room we have regularly Yoga and Meditation classes. And, of course, if there is no Yoga class taking place the Meditation and Movement room invites to relax together.

Are you looking for a great vacation, maybe traveling alone and need some positive energy? You had a ruff time lately and need to be reminded how it feels to be okay, maybe even to be happy? I can only recommend Omassim to everybody who is open to an enriching experience that means meeting new people, eating delicious vegan/vegetarian food, doing yoga and/or learn how to surf (with a great surf-school), resting in the sun, walking along the cliffs and just finding some inner peace and strength to keep going with life. This is of course only my experience and nobody can promise you that you will love it as much - but I'm sure it will be a good and interesting experience for anybody. Especially the people who stayed with me were open-minded and very lovely people, so I guess that also influences the time you spent there. The hosts are very respectful people and try to help out as much as possible. Thank you Lia, Eduardo, Nico, Lucy , Schoki and the rest of the team 2021! I am very greatful that I could stay with them - if possible at all, you should try it too in my opinion :)) Love and Peace

After having tried many retreats, my Omassim experience topped everything. The combination of delicious healthy food, fulfilling yoga and energetic surfing enabled me to reach a new balance with myself, finding calm and space. And I loved the setting where i could explore on my own or join the welcoming house community. Came back cleansed and recharged. Very grateful.

Omassim Guest House with Lia & Eduardo and team. This is the ultimate surf/yoga retreat in Ericeira. So much Love and care. So much dedication to the guest’s 360 degree well being. Very friendly staff, sweet pool and palm tree and outside area. So much Great stuff to do. It’s a bit away from the city Ericeria but this makes it very relaxing and you can focus on relaxing and getting into the sports. Highly recommend it.

I loved the Omassim! You can directly tell everything is made with a big heart. Lia gives super high quality yoga classes every morning, for all levels. You can feel her passion in what she does. No one wanted to miss a single class! People even left the bar early the night before in order to be able to attend Lias wonderful yoga sessions. The surfing with Progress Surf School and in this amazing location is great as well - these were the best surf classes I have taken so far, the teachers really know their local waves and help you improve fast and safely. The guesthouse is made simple but cozy and with a nice saltwater pool and enough room to relax. The food is just amazing! Eduardo cooks with all his heart. As a vegan, this even exceeded any of my expectations. They cook lots of fresh vegetables, also homegrown and serve the perfect full nutritious plate and make sure you get enough protein, vitamins, minerals etc. for all your activities. Everyone (I was the only vegan) was amazed by the good food and we still hope Eduardo will write a cookbook one day!!! :) Thanks for the amazing time and making us feel so welcome, Lia and whole team (including Choco the dog). I had a wonderful stay and hope to be back soon!
