"Wonderful experience! "

I’ve never done something like this before and I am a total yoga beginner so I was very nervous about this but I loved it and would 100% recommend. All of the staff were so warm friendly and helpful from the moment I arrived. The quality of yoga teaching was superb (also confirmed by other guests more experienced than myself) and they helped me modify poses for my ability. I enjoyed the massage so much I booked in another one. The facilities were clean and peaceful, I spent a lot of time in the common area and the garden. It was really nice having breakfast and dinner (food was delicious) with other guests and by the end of the trip we’d formed a lovely bond. The location which is a little bit away from the main Ericeira town didn’t cause me any issues as Moka offer transfers into town/beach, and cheap taxis are also available if needed plus there’s shops close by for essential items/lunch. For me this experience was the perfect balance of physical wellness, socialising and ‘me time’. I left feeling relaxed, reenergised and connected. If you have any reservations, please just go for it. You won’t regret it. Thank you very much for a great experience team Moka.

Cozy and serene hillside retreat overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Friendly people, amazing vegan-friendly Italian food, a variety of different yoga classes and instructors (ashtanga to yin) taught twice daily in a cozy yurt shala. Shuttle service to town (uber also works) and optional surf lessons (amazing teachers! Would absolutely recommend trying it out) I will definitely come back!

"Do it! One of the best weeks I’ve had."

The yoga was of such high quality. Two 90 minute sessions daily, with Vinyasa, Yin & Ashtanga practices. The food was unreal, especially the selection for breakfast. I went surfing once and that too was fun.

"the perfect retreat "

I loved how this yoga retreat is conducted and managed. The people at Moka, the owners, the managers, the yoga instructors and the volunteers are warm, friendly and open. The place itself has a positive energy and to be there felt like a home away from home. You will get attached to it and the fellow travelers you will meet there very quickly. The shared rooms, bathrooms and common areas are clean and user friendly. The food served is delicious, the massage session is refreshing and bookable surf lessons are fun. The yoga sessions are exactly one would expect them to be. They are oriented perfectly to match both yoga beginners and experts. The teachers are open, helpful, patient and attentive. The Moka house is located a bit further away (30 min walk) from the nearest beach and surf town Ericeira but its remoteness adds on perfectly to the peaceful atmosphere one expects at a retreat. They have daily shuttle service which takes you to the town. They also provide bikes if you want to ride. Uber is quite affordable as well. I came a bit nervous but left fully content with new memories, experiences and friends. All in all, it has been one of the most memorable experience for me.

"Wonderful yoga hostel in beautiful Ericeira "

The whole experience was great. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the yoga classes were excellent, the food was delicious. It was a wonderful break. Highly recommended. I'll be back! Just wish I'd booked for longer than 3 days as I didn't get a chance to try surfing this time due to the tides, and I didn't want to miss any yoga. Excellent massage too.

"Best experience!"

Everything! It was just perfect that me and my friends didn’t need to take care of anything (dinner, organization of courses, an AMAZING massage). The location of moka and ericeira is super beautiful and peaceful. And of course what really made a difference is how cool, nice and passionate all the people were. Cheers from us

"Big Moka Love "

When I first arrived at Moka I felt home immediately. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere really calmed me down.

The staff takes care of every need and provides a great schedule for yoga and surfing.

Doing yoga in a yurt is very nice and even just hanging out in one of the hammocks is amazing.

I specifically have to applaud the food, what is really good!!

I‘ll be back!

The surf lesson provided by a school surf in ericeira are also very professional and beginners friendly.

"perfect getaway"

It was the perfect getaway. I went there for 1 week of yoga and had a private room. They were very welcoming, they even thought about contacting me the day before I arrived to check. On arrival, they did the required corona tests. They followed the guidelines as needed. The food was excellent. They even managed to give me an alternative every time, because I am allergic to some things. Even though we couldn't use the kitchen due to corona, they were always helpful if you needed something. The rooms are very cosy as well. If you need information for hikes, biking, etc etc in the neighbourhood, they are also always ready to help you with tips. And the yoga classes are heavenly. I really liked Dorotea her classes, as well as the others!

So, I can really recommend this stay (that much that I am considering to come back actually :-))

"Peaceful Retreat"

We loved the family feel of this retreat. Furio and Francesca, and their respective partners, were a constant presence and always had time to chat about their passions- either the best surf spots or yoga. The local chef making healthy and delicious food. The amazing and calming yoga teacher and the Volunteers who were so kind, willing to help and made yummy cakes for breakfast.

The setting was very nice, about 1km away from the beach but very tranquil with lots of communal areas to chill out in. Also, there were some nice restaurants and bars within walking distance. The surf instructors were also very helpful and I definitely think I improved my surfing (and I’ve been surfing for 3 years). The skate ramp was also a welcome surprise.

From the moment I met the owners and staff at Moka , I relaxed and felt at home. The rooms are spacious and exceptionally clean. The communal kitchen has everything you could need. There are so many different areas to chill out and relax, form hammocks to sofas to deck chairs.The group meals cooked by the chef are fabulous, filling and tasty.And breakfast is a perfect way to start the day.I tried Yoga for the first time and loved it. The yurt where it is performed is incredible. I had surf lessons with Marco who was outstanding and his smile brightened every morning . I cannot express the love I have for this place and the people I met there. I will be returning again next year.

I had a such a great Yoga retreat at Moka! Yoga with Dorotea is excellent, the people working in Moka are super nice, there is a great atmosphere and a very special vibe. After only 5 days it felt like a family and at home! The dinners make it really easy to connect to other guests and the place itself too. The common kitchen is well equipped and for some space and time alone you have nice hammocks or the garden.

"Wonderful experience "

A lovely retreat outside Ericeira, beautiful surroundings and run by very friendly, open people who embody a yogic lifestyle. Took the yoga package only but based on chatting with others the surf experience and teaching is also excellent. Mindful yoga classes take place in a beautiful yoga Shala in the garden and I learned such a lot from both Dorothea and Christine to bring back to my own practice. I also had a really fantastic massage - so sorry I can’t remember the name of the practitioner! Wonderful evening meals every couple of days, with great veggie food and a real feeling of community. Dorms very comfortable- slept deeply every night due to exercise and great air quality. As a somewhat older person at the retreat house I did not feel at all out of place and enjoyed chatting to other guests in the evenings over a glass of wine. The house is close to a beautiful beach and drop-offs and pick ups are available to go further afield every day. Coming home my over- riding memory is of genuine welcome and warmth from the owners and teachers and the huge amount of work that goes into making the whole experience as happy as possible for all the guests. A special thank you to Dorothea for her generous teaching- I hope to return in future! Namaste 🙏

I really enjoyed the yoga classes, and Dorotea was an amazing and warm professor! The food was also very good, diverse, and vegetarian/vegan friendly. I met a lot of nice people coming from all over Europe and from different walks of life. The atmosphere definitely worth it, but it feels more like a youth hostel experience than a serious yoga retreat. The staff was also super kind and chill.

A very nice place, with very nice people, both the ones in staff and the other guests. The staff are very helpful and flexible.

A nice atmosphere with good opportunities for making your own food and relaxing. There are many other activities you can easily book, if you would like to do other stuff than yoga/surf, and at a reasonable price.

10 min. to the beach by car, and wonderful beaches for surfing.

From the moment I arrived at Mokha everyone was super friendly and inviting. Travelling alone can be anxiety-provoking, yet I immediately felt welcomed and at home. The staff were very friendly, helpful and proactive, Dorotea was fantastic as a yoga teacher - super friendly and she gave me some great alignment tips! I didn't get to take as many of Christine's classes, however they were equally fabulous. The food was great, the environment was great, the people were great!

"6 days of utter bliss"

This was my first yoga retreat and I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. I hadn't been doing much yoga for a few months before going away, so was looking forward to getting stuck into my practice once again, and this retreat really allowed me to do that.

Moka is fairly small, around 20 people doing a mix of yoga and surf and because of that you get to know people pretty quickly. Like me, a lot of people were solo travellers and this didn't matter at all - everyone was really friendly.

I was in a 4 person shared room which was basic, but fine. I only spent time sleeping in there. The rest of the villa is lovely - a big shared kitchen space with a TV (we had lovely evening meals and a group Game of Thrones finale viewing which was fun) and loads of outdoor areas to chill out either in a hammock or deck chair. The yurt to do yoga in was a great space, with a beautiful view over the sea.

The teaching was brilliant - a real mix of styles and accessible for all levels (though I think if you were a total beginner you may struggle a little). Neither Dorotea or Christine took themselves too seriously, which I think is important. Moka is about chilling and having a good time. It's not a detox. You can have a drink in the evening and nobody will mind. Talking to people, I think this is what really appealed.

The nearby town of Ericera is cute and they offer a shuttle which is helpful. The nearby beach is lovely and quiet with a nice cafe on the top of the cliff.

The staff was really welcoming, mainly Emanuela, Andia and Cindy.

Breakfast was good but I would have appreciated some non vegetarian option!

The villa it’s really well maintained, the garden is amazing and the yoga place is very nice.

I liked the yoga with Dorotea: Both Ashtanga, rocket and vinyasa class were all good if you’re a beginner Or intermediate level. I wouldn’t describe them as challenging classes but they’re good if you’re good to yoga and they not too demanding if you’re doing other activities during the day like surfing or hiking.

Massage was actually great. One of the best ones I’ve ever had.

The staff were friendly, very well organised and nothing was too much trouble. Food freshly prepared and delicious. It was great to try the different types of yoga and our instructor Dorotea was funny, warm and welcoming. She took the time to explain the positions and help correct your posture. Christine was great as well and I really enjoyed the inclusion of essential oils In her sessions. It really didn't matter what level your yoga was at, you were encouraged to go at your own pace. I loved the whole experience and thought it was excellent value for money.

"Mindful and grateful after 5 days in paradise"

Moka has this welcoming and relaxing vibe. All instructors are very good in their field without taking themselves too seriously. Everybody is so kind and wise. We were among the youngest visitors, at 26 years old and we made so many amazing and diverse friends (we are already planning a reunion). We booked our accommodation on the last minute, which allowed us to choose a period of amazing, sunny weather in the beginning of May. This greatly influenced our visit. Breakfast was cute and the two dinners were just perfect thanks to David’s italian cusine! We did not have much background in yoga and surfing before our Moka visit, but we learned so much and are motivated to continue.

"Brilliant budget yoga and surf retreat"

I loved staying at Moka and think it’s really good value for money. The accommodation is beautiful and clean, yet un-showy and they have created a retreat space where you can find a balance of structured activities (yoga, running, surfing, SUP to name a few) and time for rest and relaxation (the hammocks and massage included in the package are great). The owners are friendly and helpful but give everyone their space too. All very well organised. Loads of interesting people passing through. I preferred this to some of the more expensive retreats I’ve been on. Thanks very much - we had a great time.

This was my first yoga/surf retreat and I'm so glad I chose Moka. Everything about my time here has been great, the community spirit of the house, the welcoming environment and the people - both visitors and staff - it has been unforgettable.

Free transfers to and from Ericeira made travel easy. Staff and other guests friendly and welcoming. Amazing location. The yoga sessions were excellent and I feel totally relaxed after my stay and inspired to practice yoga daily. The hammocks were great for relaxing. The included meals were very good and an excellent opportunity to chat to the other people staying.

The massage was a nice treat

"Short getaway from the city"

I last-minute booked a short trip to Moka via bookyogaretreats.com for the yoga and ended up joining a couple of the surf classes too - both very enjoyable for all levels. Dorotea's ashtanga and rocket yoga classes were particularly movement-focused and Christine's yin yoga class was very calming. Both have different styles of course but very attentive to their students equally.

Despite new people coming and going everyday, Francesca, Augusta and the volunteers were very organised and friendly. The massage included in the package is extremely healing. Lovely breakfast is prepared every morning by the volunteers and usually had a homemade bread which was nice. Side note, there is also a truck bakery nearby that has a stone oven inside a truck, if you would like to try their freshly baked goods!

I would highly recommend to anyone looking to re-energise alongside likeminded people, be close to nature and practise yoga as a first-timer or advanced, alike.

"Great atmosphere and beautiful people"

This establishment is run by two lovely couples who are very welcoming and happy karma helpers.

The location is a little out of the main town giving you more peace away from it all however they do provide daily transfer to and from the town which is really helpful. The beach is a 30 minute walk away although they do provide bikes just keep in mind it’s up hill on the way back! The Yoga was amazing having a variety and two very different teachers to giving you more knowledge and guidance. The surf lesson was a lot of fun I’m really glad I tried to achieve it on my last day! :-)

I have to say a special thanks to Felipe who was there helper through work away he truly made everyone’s experience so much more entertaining and enjoyable when the weather was so bad!

Thank you for such a wonderful stay, I will be back when the weather clears for sure!!

"Super nettes und chilliges Surf & Yoga Camp"

Moka ist ein toller Platz um Surfen und Yoga miteinander zu verbinden. Es liegt zu Fuß eine Stunde außerhalb con Ericeira. Der Shuttle Service ist jedoch super und kann täglich hin und rück genutzt werden. Das Gelände ist mega idyllisch und mit dem frei zur Verfügung stehenden Rädern ist man in 10 Min am Strand und Strandcafé mit herrlichem Ausblick.

Alle Leute sind super nett und hilfsbereit und kleine Probleme lassen sich easy klären. Das publikum ist bunt gemischt und es fühlt sich irgendwie wie Familie an. Man kommt gut mit allen Gästen ins Gespräch und auch die Dinner sind sehr lustig.

Das Frühstück und Dinner ist super lecker und auf individuelle Ernährungsvorlieben wird Rücksicht genommen.

Auch das Yoga und meine zwei Massagen waren super.

Ich habe nichts auszusetzen und kann Moka nur weiterempfehlen.

"Super retreat!"

Super vriendelijke staff, uitstekende yoga lerares, fantastisch eten. Daarnaast een ruim opgezette accommodatie waardoor er altijd een plek is om je terug te trekken mocht je daar behoefte aan hebben.

"Aanrader! "

Perfecte combi tussen surfen en yoga. Ook als beginner. Zeer lieve mensen. Mooie locatie en dat het waar meer in het binnenland is, maakt eigenlijk niet uit. Er zijn voldoende transfers naar strand en stad.

"Saudade for Moka Surf House, Ericeira and all the friends"

Les propriétaires du lieu sont très accueillants et tout est bien organisé sans non plus que cela soit trop rigide, c'est modulable selon nos envies du moment. Les cours de Yoga et les cours de surf sont de grande qualité. Les professeurs tant de Yoga et de surf donnent de super cours, sont très prévenants, rigoureux et en plus très sympas. Il y avait une bonne ambiance sur la plage pendant les cours de surf! Les petits déjeuners et les repas sur place sont délicieux. L'ambiance parmi le groupe présent était très bonne, les installations, permettent cela, comme les terrasses, les espaces communs et les dortoirs, mais aussi les petits déjeuners et les repas et les cours, cela permet de créer cette très bonne ambiance. Nous étions un groupe très varié au niveau des âges et de tas de pays (France, Pologne, Italie, Irelande, Angleterre, Norvège, Suède etc. etc.) et tout le monde s'est très bien entendu. Saudade pour Moka Surf House. Je pense y revenir l'été prochain.

"Wat een service!"

Reeds v voor mijn vertrek werd ik via Whatsapp gecontacteerd om mijn aankomst en verblijf zo goed mogelijk te regelen. Ook tijdens het verblijf was er een perfecte service.

De yogalessen waren uitstekend! De massage eveneens fantastisch!!

Sterk enthousiast team.

Was one of the best vacations I ever had! The guests as well as the staff are great. The yoga and surf instructors are very passionate and great. After only an hour in the water, all of us beginners were able to get up on the board even though the conditions were not the easiest.

Also it should be mentioned that the free dinner that was offered is prepared by the staff which is mainly Italian. Need I say more? ;) great food in great quantities, just right after a day in the ocean :)

My first Yoga retreat was in MOKA and I really enjoyed every moment. All the team was freindly, positive and helpfull Francesca, Augusta, Furio,Ivan are really so kind ; Dorotea is simply the best Yoga teacher ever and a fantastic person with so much attention to the guests. I had also the chance to try some surf lessons and I found it fantastic. I absolutly recommend MOKA and I think I will come back if I have the chance.

"Simply loved it ! "

Un séjour parfait, mémorable !

De l'ambiance, à la gentillesse de toute l'équipe, jusqu'à la qualité des cours de Yoga de Dorotea et Christina, tout était parfait...

Le lieu invite à la détente, nous avons eu du mal à quitter MOKA pour aller à la plage !

Des vélos sont à disposition, et la plage est aussi facile d'accès à pied (25 min de marche)

Au programme : running au levé de soleil avant la classe de 8h30, balades à vélo, massage (incroyable!!!!) découverte des falaises.... tout était magique

Je recommande chaudement MOKA et n'ai qu'une hâte : y retourner !

Un immense merci à tous, et à très vite <3
