Sense the extraordinary

Four years in the planning, the newly open Surfers Lodge Peniche is the brainchild of Norwegian John Malwqvist whose ambition was to create an upmarket surf hotel that was more a home from home than a hotel. They refer to the ‘lobby’ as a ‘living room’ and their ‘hotel rooms’ are ‘bedrooms’.

With the environment very much at the heart of the project most of the hotel was furnished using recycled materials. The bar is made from an old fishing boat and throughout the hotel they have upcycled a number of interesting items. In fact most of the themed rooms you will find recycled wooden panelled walls and furniture.

The restaurant serves regional produce that is purchased fresh from local markets and converted into rustic but sophisticated and flavoursome menus influenced by local and international cuisine and served in the glass fronted dining room.

The Roof top terrace with plunge pool, furnished with bean bags, cushioned seating areas and assortment of exotic Middle Eastern carpets is a great place to chill after a days’ surfing. It also provides a great occasion to meet like-minded individuals from around the world and share stories and experiences over a cold beer or chilled glass of local white wine.

Surfers Lodge Peniche has an onsite surf academy run by Marlele Barardo, an experienced surfing instructor, who will tailor lessons to suit all abilities from complete beginner to those looking to surf a tube for the first time. Although surfing is the principal activity it is possible to try your hand at some other activities including stand up paddle boarding at 3HOUSE in Baleal, golf, scuba diving and tennis.
