Areias Do Seixo

Eco Ultimate Luxury surrounded by the nature and waves of Santa Cruz!

Areias do Seixo Charm Hotel is a magical natural havan, less than one hour away from Lisbon. Experience creativeness, sublime comfort, relaxed ambiance, and a keen sense of style that seamlessly blends in with the natural surroundings of the land, the sea, and the shore.

This is the perfect retreat for anyone truly seeking a break from the urban hubbub and looking to restore their energy levels by giving themselves up to nature and the endless waves of this slice of Portuguese coast.

The Resort

Areias do Seixo Charm Hotel is a realisation of the owners Marta and Gonçalo’s dream, who had a compelling desire to create a unique place where they could welcome people from the four corners of the globe in a magical familiar setting.

Areias do Seixo exists in harmony with Nature. It was conceived and fashioned in perfect balance with its surroundings. This hotel is an ecological place that applies the principles of sustainable tourism: energy efficiency, renewable energies, and the use of natural resources.

Each room tells its own intriguing story. The restaurant transports you to a place where scent, taste and colour come together, using raw ingredients sourced from the bountiful Mother Nature. Let yourself be transported back to an almost forgotten time when “to feel” was enough.

Waves at Areias Do Seixo

Santa Cruz is home to a renowned beach break, a long stretch of sand that produces some thumping barrels and reeling peaks that can rival Europe’s best on its day. Home to a series of sandbanks and sand-covered reefs, Santa Cruz even has a sand-covered shipwreck!  Both Peniche and Ericeira are a short drive away for the ones willing to score also these famous waves or where the conditions are not perfect for the home spots!

All-year-round waves see their best conditions in spring and autumn when the swells are consistent, the light off-shore winds blow and the peaks get perfect!

The resort offers surf lessons and guiding for all surfing levels, in groups or private, through its sister Noah Surf School.

Why We Love Areias Do Seixo

The unique style of the rooms and villas, curated in all details, with stunning views over the ocean and the dunes!

You can walk through the dunes to access the beach and the many surfing peaks of Santa Cruz!

Areais Do Seixo is a charming hotel with a strong environmental awareness! We love the sustainability concept behind it!

Accommodation

The resort offers gorgeous double rooms and a Pine Shelter perfect for a romantic couple getaway and three-bedroom luxury villas, a great choice for families and groups!

The guests will experience a different journey through the senses in the Hotel rooms. Their elements include fireplaces, Jacuzzis, terraces, and unique views of the sea and the dunes. With their seductive decor, using recycled elements,  all rooms are sophisticated and each of them is unique in its style. The Shelter distinguishes itself from other rooms not just for its unique location but also for its direct contact with Nature, in a charming luxury tent.

The Villas are independent houses, located across the street from the Hotel’s main building. Here rusticity and urbanity come together seamlessly with the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop! Seductive and cosy, the spaces are large and ethereal and include an outdoor pool and barbeque area.

The Cuisine

Enjoy a creative, organic, authentic, and lovingly made dinner/lunch at Areias do Seixo Restaurant! Here the Chefs cook with what Mother Earth naturally gives them, using flowers, bulbs, vegetables and herbs of the garden. The products are used according to seasonality, mostly are Portuguese and many locally sourced.

For a special romantic experience, you can have your dinner served in the beautiful Garden Dome, underneath the starlight, surrounded by sand dunes and pine trees.

The breakfast consists of a delicious buffet made from regional delicacies and organic produces from the vegetable garden, freshly squeezed juices, fresh fruit, a variety of bread and cereals, homemade cakes, yoghurts and jams.

The sister restaurants Noah Beach House and Noah Surf House Restaurants also offer a great alternative dining experience with the ocean as the background.

Activities

A great variety of activities and excursions specifically designed for couples and families are available at the resort. Choose between some active experiences like yoga, personal training, skateboarding, bicycle rides and walks or more relaxed ones as wine tasting, bonfire, movie nights and picnic on the sand dunes! Kids will also have fun with cooking classes, art workshops, yoga for kids and many more!

Wellness

Let yourself go, rediscover balance, awaken your inner wisdom and relax at Areias Do Seixo SPA, featuring two massage rooms, Sauna, Turkish Bath, and relaxation room. A world of unique sensations awaits you. All products are natural and the treatments use aromatherapy, phototherapy and essential and vegetable oils, which are heated to provide total relaxation.

Sustainability

Areias Do Seixo was developed with great environmental awareness, to achieve harmonious integration. The key concern is to cause the lowest environmental impact possible. From land to the table, the ingredients used in the restaurant come from the organic garden or are locally sourced. All types of accommodation don’t have air-conditioning, using geothermal temperature regulation!

I run surf coaching trips to perfect, uncrowded waves and I relied on the AWAVE team to deliver for my clients a month long boat trip to the Maldives. We had great waves on an absolutley 5* boat called North Seven which I REALLY recommend you enquire about.

I was dubious at first as a few boats were changed, in for repair but James assured me correctly this was a usual thing and they would endevour to find us the very best replacement (which they did). North Seven was so new we were the third guests but the crew were super experienced and could not have given us a better service. Captain Usmaan, the Chef great food, Hasan and Azim our surf boat operators could not have worked any harder and always had a smile even after the 50th request to speed us to the line up or spend four hours cruising looking or waves.

AWAVE team were always on hand to answer any fears and smooth out any worries. The payment system using Revolut was super easy.

We did have a few hiccups with the local airlines which was resolved and partly our fault (as for a month trip we took alot of surfboards and in some cases were over weight).

Take the fear out of booking and especially group bookings by using the AWAVE team. Justin West Coaching recommended.

These guys are the BEST! Massively knowledgeable, fun and absolute shredders. I approached them asking for a UK winter getaway somewhere in the Indian Ocean and they suggested the perfect place, awesome setup with the beach a short stroll from my accommodation with 3 sick waves breaking over reefs to chose from. Real life doesn’t get much better than this. I also popped my barrel cherry in a big way on this trip so it was a truely memorable one. James also somehow wangled a boat charter to some super remote islands where we scored epic surf and landed some massive fish. James’ broken Indonesian language skills will get you places. Thanks again guys you rock.

James is a super knowledgeable surfer with a great ability to match any trip requirements to the right locations. He has arranged several trips for me and my friends in France, Morocco and more recently Indonesia. Awave have a great knowledge of all the surf spots and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is all set up. With limited time to do this myself their service was invaluable.

Giuliana has been amazing to work with!! She was always available and answered all my questions. Thank you for all your help! We can't wait for our trip!

Fantastic service from start to finish from James and his team. After having several ‘self organised’ trips to Asia end with only a handful of good surf days I decided this time to use Awave in hope of maximising my valuable holiday time. James custom built a trip for me and my friends tailored for our abilities and requirements. There were no days wasted waiting for transfers as he organised it all from the airport to the beach. We scored pretty much every day whilst also having a surf trip that had that ‘off the beaten track’ feel we wanted. To round it off there was also a secret boat trip in the end where we surfed an awesome spot just us...Unforgettable. Will be using again.

Fantastic service and support from Giulia during our trip. During a self organised trip to Maldives, we ended up in a sketchy situation: the hotel was far from the described plus the owner 'forgot' to mention that the whole island was in lockdown for a covid emergency. I quickly realized that I would need support and the best in class. That's when I decided to use Awave! Giulia answered reactively and custom built several solutions for me and my girlfriend, based on what feasible, our budget and surfing preferences!! No other words needed. Thanks Giulia, we'll be in touch again!

My friends and I recently went on a trip to the Maldives. We booked a week on the Hudhuranfushi resort which was amazing! The staff was very welcoming, flawless facilities and tasty food. One day our surf guide Ryan caught a fish and made some sashimi on the spot! I think that was pretty thoughtful! Awave agency really made sure all our needs where met as we where a big group of friends. A very personal approach and clear communication. Epic surf, great service, memories of a lifetime! I highly recommend traveling with Awave!

I had just arrived in Bali when the whole of Indonesia went into lockdown again. Despite travel restrictions such as mandatory vaccination and PCR tests, flight cancellations and even the fast ferries to the Mentawis being cancelled, Giulia tried everything to get me there. It was a hell of a trip to get there but totally worth it.

I scored pristine and empty Mentawis. The resort was affordable yet very luxurious given the remoteness. And with their great surf guide and their boat, I scored amazing empty waves!
