Omassim Guest House (two houses) is an oasis of bright, homely accommodation, located in a quiet and lovely residential area in the small village of Palhais, Ericeira with an open view over the surrounding green hills.

Omassim Gueshouse can accommodate 20 guests with two-bed, three-bed, and five-bed rooms including one bunk bed. All bathrooms are shared. The dining and living room are the perfect meeting point to take breakfast, read a book, or on cold days enjoy the warmth of the fireplace. You will relax and enjoy the peaceful nature, soak up the sun next to the swimming pool (not heated) in its lovely garden, or feast on the delicious vegetarian menu.

Ericeira charming Fishertown is about four kilometers south walking distance away, the next beach (Ribeira dIlhas) is reachable in about 20 minutes walk in the beautiful nature reserve with stunning, breathtaking views. Single occupancy is available for a supplementary charge.

Special COVID-19 meaures:

Omassim was closed during the lock-down and re-opened on the 15th June. During the lock-down period, Omassim participated in online training to learn about the new measures that are required to make our place as safe as possible for our wonderful guests. We received the Certification and the Badge: Clean and safe. We have reduced our capacity to 50 percent so there is much more space. Bathrooms are shared with only one other person (in the shared bedrooms).

We have increased the frequency of cleaning common spaces as well as bathrooms and there will always be disinfectant sprays, alcohol gel and disinfectant soap available. Guests are welcome to bring their own personal disinfection utilities too. Whatever works well for you.

At breakfast, lunch and dinner times, guests are individually served by members of our staff. We have an impressive buffet of healthy food available. We maintain a distance of 1.50 meters between each table during these times. In the common spaces all our guests are asked to wear masks (this is the measure for now) and we will see how the situation unfolds with COVID-19.

We might need to divide the group for the yoga practice. For now, the recommended distance for people in the yoga shala is 3 meters, this means we only can accept 6 people practicing yoga in the yoga shala. We will find a good solution for this, but we just want to mention that we might need to offer 4 yoga classes per day and people can choose the one they prefer.

We are located in a small residential area called Palhais, 10 minutes’ walk from the famous beach Ribeira d´Ilhas, 15 minutes’ walk to Ribamar, a small village with a few cafés. The nature reserve has nice walks along the coastline and is a safe place to enjoy stunning views and beautiful nature. People are allowed to go into cafés and shops but wearing a mask is a necessity. We have beautiful beaches here, close by. The highlight of Omassim guesthouse is that we are next to the nature reserve and it is safe to go to a small beach without meeting too many people. We also have a saltwater swimming pool and a garden to soak up the sun and relax in the deck-chairs.

For our surfers: If you already have a wetsuit then it is recommended to bring your own. If you do not have a wetsuit, don't worry! The surfing school will provide a wetsuit for you for your entire stay, they will mark it, wash it and it will be only you using it for the time of your stay.

You can control your body temperature with our touch-free thermos any time you wish. Following the law, we prepared one room as an isolation/quarantine room for people who feel unwell and there is a strict protocol to follow.

Program

Enjoy your stay in Omassim Guesthouse. Whether you are seeking a wellness break or a more active vacation - additional wellness treatments and activities like surfing lessons, walking, and mountain biking trips or creative evening events can be arranged. Create beautiful memories and let Omassim be one of them!

The yoga classes

Yoga classes will take place on Monday to Friday. There will be 5 morning Vinyasa Flow yoga classes, 5 evening Restorative, Soft Flow or Yin Yoga classes. There will be 1 Saturday morning yoga class as well. All classes are 75 minutes long.

Yoga is for everyone, so you do not need to be an aficionado, nor to be in top form. Each class includes the practice of pranayama (breathing exercises), asanas (seat, posture) and savasana (relaxation at the end of the class). The morning classes will be the Vinyasa Flow, a gentle practice of Hatha yoga which focuses on the synchronization of the breath (prana) with the postures (asanas). It is a dance of the asanas always in connection with breathing to calm the mind.

Let the breath be your guide to liberate your mind and increase your inner peace, harmony, love and joy. Practicing yoga will help to harmonize the nervous system, increase the sense of balance of body and mind and strengthens the lymphatic system.

Traditionally the evening classes are more soft, slow, restorative or yin yoga to integrate the day and prepare for a great rest for the night. Let yourself emerge into the flow of your yoga practice. Enjoy the breathing, and relax deeply your body, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and also your mind. Let yourself lead your own breath through a class full of regeneration, recreation, and calm.

Firewalking ceremony (March 28-April 4)

Firewalking, a traditional practice dating back to 4000 years ago, is based on the theory of mind over matter or understanding the mind with matter. Fire being one of the five elements of Earth, is considered an important tool for self-development and evolvement, and the ritual of firewalking is engraved in many cultures for rites of healing, initiation, and faith.

Very often in life we are blocked and limiting ourselves based on fears and doubts. This may bring us physical pain and/or soul pain or simply block us from developing our talents in our life journey. The spiritual practice of walking on fire helps us accept these doubts and transform them. Walking on fire has a very particular meaning, that was transmitted to us by ancient cultures for thousands of years, it is the union of body, mind and soul.

Included excursions

One guided walk is included in the package. You can also choose between 2 guided mountain bike tours and 2 stand up paddle tours to complete your experience.
