"Highly recommended "

Excellent experience all round - food was amazing, the team was great - loved what they have done


from Great Britain, October 2018

"Great for surfing, easy yoga and fantastic veggie food "

The team make you feel like part of the family instantly, no question, problem or request is too much. The food is exceptional, the pool is wonderful. For a beginner surfer the lessons were great; we got the opportunity to catch a lot of waves. The standard of cleanliness is fantastic too! Was really nice to be away from the main town and have total piece and quiet, but also some lovely people also staying to spend your time with too! And Chocolate the dog...he was an absolute treat! Really easy to get into Ericeira (50 min walk) or get a taxi. Beach is a 15 min walk. Massages also fab.

"Perfect for vegans "

The schedule was busy everyday, from morning to evening, therefore no one could get bored. There were extra activities everyday, which made each day very special

"A wonderful week"

The yoga classes were great, and different styles were offered. The teachers had a lovely approach and attitude to the classes.

The surf lessons were well-run and really enjoyable - it was great to try something new.

The food provided by Omassim was excellent - a wide array of delicious vegetarian dishes.

Lia and her team were very warm and welcoming and made you feel really looked after.

After this week, I felt nourished and rested.

"I had an amazing time. "

I may go back, iI had such a good time at the Omassin. The little things and attention to detail make a huge the difference. Leah and the team really care about the guests staying and one can tell. It's a big family atmosphere. Great people, lots of fun. Hight standard of Yoga, Food, Surfing, lots extra activities to do inexpensively...

"Wondering Week!"

Wonderful program and fantastic food. We had a wide array of yoga class options and instructors, and a very open schedule so you could tailor each day to suit your needs.

Great personal training sessions with Pedro and excellent surfing courses.

Paul Gerberding

"This is the Real Deal"

Loved the ambiance and family vibe of the operation. We all felt loved and supported, and by the second day were fully relaxed and rooted into the program. Excellent and varied yoga and meditation options, delicious and nutritious food, and homey accommodations. A spiritual retreat.

"Uplifting experience"

What not too like! Lia, Eduardo & team have set the bar high. This is my first yoga retreat & not sure what to expect going in. I chose this place based on reviews only.

Everyone very helpful & friendly. One big family.

The food was amazing. Accommodations good. The location close to beaches, hiking & walking trails. As well Supermarket & pharmacy very close. Lots to explore in foot.

The yoga & meditation practices were rejuvenating. Each teacher brought different energy to the class. Carolina did my massage (my score 10/10). I added SUP to my week.I was expecting yoga on the board much more difficult. Sara such a good teacher.

I have made many new friends here. Looking forward to coming back soon. ❤️❤️❤️

"April surf and yoga"

Went alone and returned having made 20 new friends.

From the very first moment I arrived I felt that the hospitality was so fantastic.

Transfers were well organised and we were asked if we wanted to share to save money.

Then we had a delicious welcome dinner and Lea gave a welcome talk about what the week entailed. She was so fantastic and thoughtful about every little need we had.

I shared with two others and slept very well. The place was clean and bathrooms cleaned regularly.

The food was just delicious and always lots of it.

The yoga classes were incredible and personalised to the group.

The surf was super fun and it was great to go with new surfers. Felt very safe in the sea with the instructors and wetsuits and boots were provided.

There were also super daily meditation classes and free classes in the evening.

Always lots to do or nothing to do if you wished.

Warm fires, incredible food, wonderful atmosphere and very happy, open-minded people.

An amazing week overall and I miss it already.

Thank you Omassim Team!

"Eine rundum tolle Zeit"

Ein insgesamt stimmiges, tolles und authentisches Rundumpaket was Lia, Eduardo und das ganze Team im Omassim Guesthouse anbieten: leckeres, gesundes Essen mit vorwiegend selbst angebautem Gemüse; abwechslungsreiche Yogaklassen; mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtete Räumlichkeiten; einen Pool mit Garten; tolle Massagen; das Meer und andere schöne Orte in der Natur direkt um die Ecke; eine offene Wohlfühlatmosphäre,... und viele extra Angebote. Da ich nicht surfen war, kann ich darüber nichts sagen, alle anderen Gäste waren jedoch begeistert. Ich habe in meiner Woche deutlich spüren können, wie viel Herz im Omassim steckt und hatte eine rundum tolle Zeit.

Das gesamte Team hat einen soo herzlich empfangen, es war wie eine große Familie!

Die Yogastunden waren perfekt und man konnte vor dem Frühstück noch kurz in den Pool springen. Yogalehrer und Surflehrer haben das super gemacht!

Das beste war das Essen, morgens mittags abends mit so viel Liebe zubereitet und jedes mal köstlich!

The combination of yoga and surfing. The instructors take care of everybody. It gives you the feeling of being warmly welcomed. There is a lot of program you can join. The food is amazing. I'm not a vegetarian yet, but after this retreat I think of becoming one.

"Besser gehts nicht"

Das Omassim ist ein Pkatz an dem man sich einfach nur wohlfühlen kann. Eine wunderschöne Anlage in absolut ruhiger Lage. Lia, Eduardo und all die anderen von der Crew vor Ort schaffen es vom ersten Moment an, ein familiäres Gefühl zu vermitteln. Spätestens ab dem zweiten Tag fühlt es sich so an als wäre man schon viel länger dort und gehört einfach dazu. Die Yogastunden sind fordernd und abwechslungsreich. Die Surfkurse machen einfach nur Spass. Zusätzlich gibts noch weitere Angebote wie die Sweatlodge (sollte man unbedingt mal gemacht haben) und hervorragende Massagen. Und die Krönung des ganzen ist das super krestive, abwechslungsreiche und fantastische Veggiefood jeden Tag. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis empfinde ich auch mehr als fair. Im Omassim stimmt einfach alles. Bis hin zu Manolo dem riesigen Knuddelhofhund den ma einfach gerne haben muss. Insgesamt einfach nur Spitze. Ein Pmatz zum Wiederkommen.

Jana Hoss

"Einfach toll!!"

Es war einfach traumhaft bei omassim. Das Essen war fantastisch, die surflehrer haben eine wahnsinns Arbeit geleistet und wir standen alle auf den Brettern ( jeder wurde an den richtigen Stellen gefördert und gefordert). Die yoga-Stunden wurden auf den Könnensstand der Gruppe angepasst und die asanas wurden sehr achtsam durchgeführt. Eine durchweg tolle Erfahrung. Danke an alle, die hier mitgewirkt haben!

Heljä Franssila

from Finland, January 2019

Our Christmas at Omassim could not have been any happier! The yoga classes were very good, food was incredibly lovely, the houses are beautiful, and all the extra programme Eduardo and Lia had prepared for us was stunningly good – the latter with the help of their friends who are professional musicians. We really appreciated the professional, yet warm way the retreat is being operated with, and there is really nothing more we could have wished for.


from United States, October 2018

"Rundum wohlfühlen"

Sarah Crane

"Beautiful people, retreat and mix of activities"

I thoroughly enjoyed my week at Omassim, one of most memorable experiences for so many reasons. As a yoga teacher myself, I highly rated the quality of yoga tuition available... several classes of which were often workshop-style (e.g. with a particular focus, such as on the heart chakra), which I thoroughly loved. The food was out of this world, and I'm now pining for it since I've been home! A delicious array of vegetarian delights, always served at the same time each day... I was never hungry! And the people... such beautiful souls... Lia and Eduardo are at the helm and their kindness and generosity trickles all the way down. I'll be back!

Anni Riitaho

"A paradise on the corner of Europe"

One week is simply not enough for a stay at Omassim. I did the yoga packet and loved every minut of my stay. The food is amazing and facilities superb. I did a sweat lodge ritual as an extra activity and can warmly (pun intended) recommend it. I also took an extra surfing lessong which was fun.

Omassim is really relaxed place with a lot of options. Rather you are after an cleansing week by your self or a fun surf holiday with you friends , Omassim is a place for you.

Anna Alekseeva

from Switzerland, April 2018


It was my first yoga retreat and I was very lucky to spend it in Omassim. A truly outstanding experience, from the the beginning till the last minutes there, everything was just wow!

"Yoga trail"

The location was beautiful and peaceful, the guesthouse was clean, warm and cosy. The people were friendly. The food was amazing, so tasty and such a variety. The yoga was challenging yet perfect to start the day. The ying yoga was something new for me and really enjoyed the slow movement which really got into those tight spots. Went surfing every day, the instructors were patience and a good laugh. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would return.

Fantastic food, great combination of yoga lessons, meditation and optional activities, relaxing, get-away-from-it-all location, very warm and cosy guesthouse, staff


from Denmark, March 2018

"A beautiful experience for a fair price (BUT...)"

I had a nice time at Omassim together with the group that was there during the same week. The people were really the highlight of my week, we had great chemistry and shared a lot of good moments in the dining room or chatting in the living room next to the fireplace.

- The food was delicious.

- Lia is a great and experienced yoga teacher.

The 2 younger teachers that were doing meditation and afternoon classes were maybe a bit less used to work with a group with different levels of practice but all in all I believe we all liked the program.

- The rooms are comfortable and cosy and I can imagine that in the summer the garden and pool are fantastic!

- A great variety of massage is offered (1 massage was included in my package).

- They also offer extra activities (donation based) some better than others.

"I can't stop smiling"

I don't think I am easily impressed and didn't do much yoga before. This place was unreal. The atmosphere is incredible. Everyone is so kind and helpful. I was so lucky that my fellow yogis were just the best as well. I made friends for life. I was very stressed before and now I can't stop smiling. I will be back for sure. ❤️

Olena Shevkova

"Thanks a lot!!! "

It was a very nice experience. The place is perfect to take a break from the daily routine and stress. You have everything to bring your body and !!!mind!!! to the harmony. The food was delicious. The ocean was so wunderful. Surfing was exciting. Massage let your fly to the sky afterwards. People are really great. and again the food... no komments. You will understand =)

I expected, that yoga will be more intensive. But I think it depends on the group. It was still wonderfull.

Thanks a lot for the time. I want to come back =)

"Great atmosphere with lovely guests and great staff"

Susie is a great yoga instructor as well as Lia of course! All the staff were great and looking after our needs continuously. I stayed in the yellow house and it was a little cold and not as equipped as the other houses but on the other hand it was really peaceful with a lovely garden. My stay was so so so much better than expected. Highly recommended especially if you are travelling alone! This was my first retreat and first time going alone! I had a super time and miss it already! Well done Lia and Eduardo!! xxxx

"Best week ever!"

Lia and Eduardo have made Omassim an amazing little sanctuary, welcoming of absolutely anyone and everyone. As a solo traveler, I wasn't sure what to expect but there was a good mix of people of all ages, from all around the world, traveling together and alone, and by the end of the week, we were all sad to say goodbye.

From the minute I arrived, I felt 100% comfortable in the space and I loved being able to take advantage of different yoga, meditation, and surf classes throughout the week, plus nature walks, sunset hikes, and of course, some lazy time in the hammocks by the pool!

The food, all vegetarian or vegan, was all incredible and the bedrooms were modest but lovely. I am already planning my next trip and I can't wait to go back to Omassim!

"Complete nourishment for body and soul "

- The quality and variety of food offered three times a day was excellent.

- Accommodation was good.

- Vinyasa flow and Yin yoga classes offered were also very good and varied from class to class.

- Staff, particularly volunteers, very friendly.

- Several experiences offered which took you out of your comfort zone - but which I personally really enjoyed.

Gwyneth Cliffe

The yoga classes were very professional and heartfelt and i really enjoyed the meditation each day which was always different. The staff were helpful and friendly and excellent care from Lia throughout. I LOVED the massage ,loved the SUP,loved the extra trips out,couldn't recommend the place more.

Kathryn Cumming

from Canada, July 2017

"Amazing week at Omassim"

The owner (Lia) was fabulous. You could tell how much she cared about everyone's enjoyment. The food was beyond amazing. My drawbacks were for the surf and surf lessons - The water was very cold and I felt that I lacked feedback during surfing lessons. The other thing I would have appreciated was to have our towels changed at least once during the week. Lastly the yoga instructors are volunteers and one was not as good as the others. Although with feedback she improved throughout the week. Otherwise I met amazing people and had a very positive experience. Extras like SUP yoga and nature walks were appreciated. Whether you go for yoga only or yoga and surf it is a worthwhile trip and great value for the money.

Lucie Fayard

"Excellent Yoga week - everything PERFECT!"

I had an amazing week at Omassim. Everything was wonderful:

- great yoga classes (2 dynamic yoga classes in the morning, 1 more relaxing yoga class late afternoon - you can choose 2 classes everyday, included in your package, if you want one more, you can just drop in and pay at the end of the week for the extra classes you had)

- great location: 10 min walk to the coast/beach, nice way along the coast with amazing sunset. Omassim consists of 3 houses, basically you will spent your time in 2 houses (just a road between them so really close), one house with tables and kitchen/meals, one house with yoga, garden, pool and wellness temple.

- delicious food: great veggie buffet for breakfast, lunch, diner. Fresh, lots a vegetable and various salads, curries, gratins, tarts etc... Goat cheese also available in the morning :) Important: there is coffee!!

- great massage: you can choose between several options (Thai, ayurvedic, shiatsu...) and you can choose the time you want by putting your name on a table

- several extra activities available: horse riding, stand up paddle, mountain bike, surf of course, fitness (group or private), etc.

- staff very nice and welcoming, you will feel at home and it will be hard to leave!

Eine Woche, in der einfach alles wunderbar, harmonisch zusammenpasste. Team, Location,Yoga und Surfen, alles geht Hand in Hand. Ich fühlte mich sehr aufgehoben und man spürt, dass alle dort ihre Arbeit mit sehr viel Hingebung machen!

Ich bin immer noch ganz hin und weg...hier spürt man die Energie, mit wieviel Liebe gekocht, meditiert, Yoga und Massagen abgehalten werden, auf Menschen eingegangen wird und noch Vieles mehr...ich habe noch nie einen Urlaub, wo ich dermasen erholt, entspannt, glücklich und zufrieden nach Hause gekommen bin, erlebt, wie hier. Danke euch Allen, dass ich das erleben darf! Die Gegend und die Landschaft ist ein Wahnsinn, kraftvoll, atemberaubend, stimmig, harmonisch...passt alles perfekt zusammen. Ich war mit meiner Schwester hier, sie ist gleich begeistert von diesem Haus samt Lia und Team, wir kommen bestimmt wieder. ♡

"We had a Perfect stay!"

The hosts Lia and Eduardo were very welcoming and nice, always helpful. The House was beautiful and tidy. I really liked the colorful interior.

We did the Yoga trial week, and The Yoga was really good. Also The extra activities they offered, like The SUP tour or the sweat lodge were better than we expected.

And also the Food was really good!

I definitly think of coming back Next year!!

"Rundum Sorglos Paket"

Man hatte alles was man brauchte. Ein zusätzliches Angebot an Massagen, Sound Journey etc und die Möglichkeit von Tagesausflug machten die Zeit sehr kurzweilig.

Sehr, sehr gutes Essen und eine liebevoll gestaltete und absolut saubere Anlage.

from United Kingdom,

This retreat was truly magical. As someone coming alone and who had not be practicing yoga frequently in past months, I was a bit nervous when I arrived. I need not have been! Everyone at this retreat was so kind- from the staff and teachers to the other visitors, and I truly felt like a part of a family even after just a week. Everyone there was at different levels of yoga, and the classes accommodated everyone. There are also a wide range of ages there, and everyone seems so youthful and positive that no matter who you are, you fit in.The schedule created a healthy, comforting routine, but left enough space for exploration and relaxation. Even participating in two yoga classes and two meditations a day, you still have time to explore the nearby cliffs, beaches, and village. Many people took up surfing or explored the larger town of Ericeira. We had spontaneous dance parties and a New Year's celebration on the shore. In addition, the rooms are comfortable and there are plenty of spaces around the houses to cozy up and read, draw, or talk. The meals are delicious and offer plenty of options (including vegan and gluten free). The weather was wonderful despite being there in the winter, so I can only imagine what summers are like! In my week, the guest houses were full, but the place never felt crowded, and I always felt attended to and cared for. Lia and Eduardo truly love what they do and are amazing hosts.Finally, I would recommend the sweat lodge ceremony to anyone visiting. It is not relaxing spa-day kind of experience but a truly transformative one. It definitely changed my experience of the week and my perspective in general.I can't wait to go back, and I never wanted to leave!


from Canada,

I had an amazing time at Omassim, and am so excited to share with friends, family and other travellers how great it was. I thoroughly encourage anyone who is considering going on a yoga retreat to do it. It was one of the best experiences travelling that I have ever had. The yoga was excellent, offering 3 classes per day from 2 different instructors, plus 2 meditation sittings per day. There were also a variety of other meditations or activities that you could try. I tried surfing twice with the great instructors from Progress Surf School, the waves in Ericeira are consistent and great for learning. I have to talk about the food, I am not vegetarian, but I could happily eat Eduardo's cooking every meal of everyday. Lunch & dinner were different and so fresh every meal, with flavours and dishes that suited everyone's taste, from all different cultures. I can definitely see why people end up staying 2 or more weeks and continue to come back to Omassim year after year. Everything is done with love and an open-mind, it is clear that Lia, Eduardo and the team do this out of love and passion for sharing this experience with others, not for commercial reasons or a drive for money. Most people were travelling by themselves so by the end of the week, we felt like a family. I would love to come back to Omassim in the future and bring my friends and boyfriend to experience it too.


Omassim is for me a safe haven after a week spent there. The atmosphere, the house itself, the food,, the shared room, the organisation, massages, yoga classes and above all the People, everything is made to make you feel comfortable and happy. The owners are just Amazing. They are talking care. Everyone feels special. Staying at Omassim is just an awesome experience which changes you forever in a good way. I will come back for sure.


from France,

Omassim was wonderful place filled with nice people with good vibes. It was even better than the best I could've expected, met some truly amazing people and made new friends, had a very restful week and the food was delicious! I will be back for sure!


from Netherlands,

Omassim is an amazing place. Excellent food, great atmosphere, quality yoga classes, massages, and surf classes if you want. Lia and Eduardo do absolutely everything they can to make your week incredible. After one week I felt I wanted to stay a bit longer and they were flexible and supportive.

from Ireland,

My stay at Omassim was beyond my expectations. First of all the surrounding is perfect for a retreat, it is located in Ribermar, Ericeria, which is a small quite town you can hear nothing but dogs barking. If you are up for a walk, the beach is 20 min on foot, and definitely worth checking out to watch surfers and the most amazing waves.

A usual day is slow but fulfilling, begins with an energizing yoga practise by Lia who is a great instructor, followed by an amazing breakfast, then people can go for surfing, do another yoga class or just chill at the hammocks at the backyard. After lunch you can get your massage, read a book, or go surfing. Later there is a 30 min meditation session which changed my life. I was never able to sit still and meditate until Omassim, so definitely try that. It is followed by a restorative yoga session and dinner.

The food at Omassim is superb, it is an open buffet of delicious and healthy vegetarian food that totally nourished my body and soul.

Lastly, Lia and Omassim crew were wonderful folks, positive, chill and helpful. The rooms are cleaned daily, people have the freedom to have as much food, fruits, tea as they want, and relax as they wish.

Omassim is an incredible place to relax, rejuvenate, re-kindle that spark that has dimmed, meet like minded people from all over the world and make new friends. The yoga Sala is large (25+ people), lovely energy, excellent quality and plentiful equipment and the yoga classes are diverse and well taught. The food is amazing, nothing more to say. The staff are genuinely happy, laughter and even singing was often heard from the kitchen / dining area. The accommodation is clean, well laid out (over 2 properties across a very quiet village road) and the pool area has plenty of hammocks and cushions to relax on. Location is excellent, close to a main surfing beach, 5 ' drive to Ericeira (close but not too close). I visited lots of villages, palaces and gardens in Sintra and explored the countryside, all within easy driving distance. All this for a very reasonable price. I will go back.

"The most relaxing week ever!"

The most relaxing week ever! Me and my partner stayed in Omassim Guest House for a week. It was the perfect amount of yoga, swimming, surfing and relaxation. Yoga classes were incredible. I have never seen someone putting so much passion into it. Lia is just amazing yoga teacher. I was also impressed by her knowledge. Food in Omassim was just delicious and well balanced. I really enjoyed the variety of food, especially at dinners. I was celebrating my birthday during my stay at Omassim and got amazing birthday surprise and celebration. All stuff is very friendly, kind and always ready to help you. Surf classes took place at Ribeira D’Ilhas Beach which was announced one of the world surfing reserves. Surfing is hard-work but you’ll love it. Teachers are very reliable and supportive. We also enjoyed high quality massage which was the perfect ending of our stay in Omassim. Would definitely recommend to everyone!


from England,

I have just returned from a wonderful week of yoga and surfing at Omassim Guest House, Portugal. The atmosphere was exceptionally friendly and easy going. There were three yoga teachers, all of whom gave excellent classes. Lia was inspirational in the way she approached her yoga teaching, making adjustments and modifications, and talking in such an expressive way that everyone must have sensed the essence of yoga. Lia looked after all the guests with care and interest. Everyone was included in the close community feeling that was naturally generated there. The food was excellent, and the support staff were friendly and welcoming. I made some lovely friends and wouldn't hesitate to return! Missing everyone already!


from Belgium,

Mon séjour s'est très bien passé, je donne la note de 9, j'aurais pu donner 9.5 mais je retire qqs points pour la literie. Mon lit n'était pas vraiment confortable.

Sinon l'équipe est juste génial, les cours top, la nourriture délicieuse.. Eduardo et Lia sont vraiment généreux et professionnels.

A traveler

from Germany,

Es war eine sehr intensive und tolle Erfahrung mit sehr guten Yoga- und Meditationssessions, sehr zu empfehlen. Viele verschiedene zusätzliche intensive Meditationsangebote am Abend auf Spendenbasis. Ich habe nie besseres vegetarisches Essen gehabt, fantastisch, dazu noch vieles aus eigenem Anbau! Absolutes Highlight.

Sehr ruhig gelegen in einem kleinen Dorf. Etwas schwierig zu erreichen, aber es gibt Busse. Man kann sich voll auf sich selbst konzentrieren. 25 Minuten zu Fuß bis zur Steilküste und zum Strand mit tollem Surfspot.

Schönes Ambiente mit Garten, Pool und Hängematten. Internationales Team, sehr freundliche familiäre Atmosphäre. Unterbringung: Kein großer Luxus, dafür schlicht und schön.


from France,

Omassim est le parfait endroit pour passer des vacances au calme, faire du yoga, méditer, faire du surf et bien d’autres choses encore. J’ai passé une magnifique semaine avec l’aide de Lia, Eduardo et de toute l’équipe qui sont là pour faire que notre séjour soit le plus agréable possible. On y rencontre des gens du monde entier qui viennent se resourcer. Le seul défaut est quand on passe une semaine chez Omasssim, on ne veut plus partir.


Mi estancia en OMASSIM ha sido maravillosa. Mucho mas de lo que esperaba encontrar. Lia y Eduardo te acogen en su casa de huespedes como te acogen los amigos. Uno se siente a gusto desde el minuto uno. Lia y Faye son dos magnificas profesoras de yoga y Eduardo se encarga de que el alimento no solo sea espiritual. La comida es deliciosa y generosa. Los desayunos, memorables. El mejore masaje de mi vida me lo dio Zarqa y su efecto me duró varios dias. Si a todo eso le sumas un paisaje de sueño, la cercania de los acantilados, una playa estupenda para practicar surf y un pueblo precioso, no hay nada que falte en OMASSIM. Gracia Lia y Eduardo por unos dias reparadores y muy relajantes. Volveré. Inma
