I loved this retreat from start to finish. I was there for the yoga and meditation (not surfing). I felt so looked after and supported, everything was provided. I met lovely people in a great location. Plus the food was out of this world :-)

"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!

"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.

"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.

"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. ❤️

"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 =)

"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!

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

- Staff, particularly volunteers, very friendly.

"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!

"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.

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

"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. ❤️❤️❤️

"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.

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!

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.

Die familiäre Atmosphäre hat mir sehr gut gefallen! Als Alleinreisende findet man immer Anschluss . Es findet eine Entschleunigung und Erholung statt, die sehr wertvoll ist. Besonders gut hat mir die Erfahrung in der Schwitzhütte gefallen! Exzellente Yoga Instruktoren!!!

"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.

"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!

My stay at Omassim was amazing. It was better than I could have hoped for. The yoga lessons were extremely good. The morning lesson was quite active and I learned a lot from Lia, who is an excellent yoga teacher. I also enjoyed the evening meditation session and yoga lesson a lot, which are more slow and relaxing. The food is in 1 word: excellent. I spend most afternoons reading in a hammock, but you can also go for a walk along the beautiful coastline or go the beach (all on walking distance). Or you can take a surf lesson. I would recommend Omassim to everyone, especially if you just want a week where you don't have to think about anything, just relax. Most guest traveled alone to Omassim and I met a lot of lovely people during my stay there. The travel from Lisbon Airport to Omassim is also easy by public transport and you can be picked up from the bus station in Ericeira. I will definitely be back next year.

I had an amazing time at Omassim, and am so excited to share with friends, family and other travelers 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 flavors 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.

I had an immensely enjoyable week feeling quite away from normal life. Lia and Eduardo did everything they could to make us feel at home, relaxed and content. The yoga classes were super, catered for all levels, and there was a choice of times. The food was excellent and plentiful. The room was simple, attractive and adequate. The additional activities were well thought out. I recommend Omassim to anyone who likes yoga, rocky coastlines, sandy beaches and relaxing by the pool in the sun.
