Little Guest is proud to present the unforgettable Noah Surf House, located in the heart of the lovely and traditional port city of Santa Cruz, which guarantees small and large families alike an exceptional experience combining beach, nature, discovery and outdoor sports.

The Noah Surf House, which was originally composed of a surf school and a restaurant, has been entirely developed by two architects, Alexandra Paiva and Vasco Veira, to offer a top-of-the-range hotel complex dedicated to surf and other sports activities. Featuring 13 bungalows and 8 rooms in cubic buildings entirely designed in natural, sober, minimalist and recycled materials, such as wood and glass, the hotel is a real invitation to reconnect with nature, thanks in particular to the use of renewable energies, such as solar panels. Designed to celebrate the ecological diversity of the coastline and the surrounding nature, it is ideal for a sporty stay, full of serenity and authenticity.

Situated in a natural setting of sand and vegetation, the region has inspired many artists and poets from all over the world, such as Antero de Quental in the 19th century, the Japanese poet Kazuo Dan in 1971, but also the poet Joao de Barros, a regular in the area. Its eleven beaches and twenty kilometres of coastline are world-famous and popular among surfers, as they have hosted World Surf League competitions in the past. An ideal place to learn or improve your surfing skills, but also to go hiking, or simply to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Alto da Vela, the Miradouro de Santa Helena or the impressive Guincho Rock.

You will reach this exceptional establishment in only 50 minutes from Lisbon airport, noting that you have the possibility to benefit from a luxurious transfer from this arrival point.



The Noah Surf House blends into the surrounding seascape, the wood of the houses mixing perfectly with the colour of the sand and rocks of the Portuguese west coast. If it was built from a former summer holiday camp – it features many fireplaces, outdoor showers and characteristic beach facilities – you will enjoy comfortable, bright and luxurious accommodation.

Its unique architecture, a clever blend of nature and futurism, as well as its state-of-the-art renewable energy systems, certainly reflect the eco-responsible values of the establishment.

In addition, you can enjoy an infinity pool, private terraces for each accommodation, fantastic sea views, an outdoor whirlpool, but also shared kitchens to share special moments with surfing families from all over the world.


The Noah Surf House features:

  • 8 rooms and 13 bungalows
  • 2 restaurants
  • 1 rooftop
  • 1 cocktail bar

  • 1 veranda with fireplace

  • 1 terminal for electric vehicles
  • 1 vegetable garden
  • 1 babysitting service
  • Baby cots on request
  • High chairs

The establishment can also be used as a reception venue for weddings and other events.



The original concept of the Noah Surf House is to offer shared common rooms with bunk or mezzanine beds, and several showers, to enjoy a sports and nature stay with friends. It is certainly possible to come as a small, medium or (very) large family. All rooms are equipped with a Bluetooth system to play the music of your choice, as well as a locker with a digital lock.

With a surface area of 75 sqm (room 45 sqm/terrace 30 sqm) and ideally designed for groups of friends and families, the Terra Rooms embody both simplicity and creativity. They feature a pretty garden and can accommodate up to six or eight people, in a mezzanine or bunk beds (single or king-size). They also feature an outdoor shower and a view on the vegetable garden from a private terrace.

With an exceptional view on the ocean, the Mar Rooms have a private balcony and a surfboard rack. Fireplace, mezzanine and private bathroom with two showers, everything is designed to make your family feel at home. They can accommodate up to 4 people and have single beds or king-size beds, as well as two washbasins. They have a surface area of 48 sqm.

Cradled by the swell of the waves just outside your Mar Bungalow, you will enjoy an original accommodation, absolutely perfect for a couple or a small family, as it can accommodate up to 3 people. The bungalow features a fireplace, a private bathroom, a balcony or garden, and two sinks. With a 28 sqm surface area, it will allow you to relax in single or king-size beds.

The Mar & Cook Bungalow with sea view is a real beach house with a fully equipped kitchen and is a must for families who want some independence. It also features a balcony, a fireplace, an outdoor shower with a surfboard rack and a private bathroom. The Mar & Cook Bungalow has a 40 sqm surface area.


What would a stay in a paradisiacal setting be without exotic flavours? With its 2 restaurants, its rooftop to admire the sunset with a refreshing drink and a bar to sip delicious cocktails, the Noah Surf House promises you explosions of flavours and the authentic tastes that are so appreciated in Portuguese gastronomy.

In the Noah Surf House Restaurant, you can enjoy dishes straight from the Middle East or Asia, but also discover or rediscover Mediterranean cuisine.

The Noah Beach House Restaurant, meanwhile, favours local gastronomy by enjoying the various fish and seafood caught off the coast of Santa Cruz and magnifies them in traditional quality cuisine.

Please note that each restaurant offers allergen-free menus, as well as children’s menus for budding gourmets.

Finally, it is possible to book a family or romantic dinner in beach huts, providing you with a serene and romantic atmosphere.

Your children won’t soon forget their stay at the Noah Surf House! As it is part of its original identity as a holiday club, everything is done to keep them occupied and stimulate their creativity.

An ultra-qualified team will take care of the toddlers, while the older ones will be able to take part in culinary activities – notably by preparing chocolate muffins -, but also in artistic expression classes, or in Yoga Kids classes.



Natural areas are full of opportunities for family sports activities. You can rent bicycles, surfboards or skateboards to spend unforgettable moments of relaxation and explore the surroundings. It is also possible to visit a surfboard factory, or, if you are a beginner, to attend family lessons (for children from 8 years old) while the little ones are looked after by the hotel’s exceptional babysitting service.

If you are more interested in family game nights, rush to the Dynamic Lab which organizes movie nights but also provides board games, table football and ping-pong tables.



While the Noah Surf House is focused on stays with friends and family, parents will also be able to enjoy intimate and privileged moments. Forget the stresses of everyday life with Yoga, Pilates or stretching classes, or go hiking with a local guide to discover more of the surrounding nature.

If you enjoy surfing in pairs, sessions for intermediate and advanced surfers are also available.

My discovery of the Noah Surf House

Jérôme, father of Achille, 5 years old, from Bruxelles



In August I had the privilege to stay in this unique hotel. Here is my testimony.


An iconic hotel

Being the founder of Little Guest, I travel a lot. I have made my passion my profession and I usually visit our partner establishments, accompanied by my wife and our son Achille. We therefore have the chance to discover great hotels. But never have I ever seen a hotel as singular as the Noah Surf House!


Inaugurated in 2018, the hotel’s mission is to pay tribute to the ocean. The concept is really great: it is a hyper-cool place that sublimates the surfing culture. The atmosphere is bohemian, the materials are raw, the food is organic and the staff is relaxed. The architect who created this resort, worthy of the most beautiful decoration magazines, has completely let go and refined his work down to the smallest detail. Multiple references to the sea world have been subtly slipped in here and there, such as fishing nets, lobster baskets or marine rope. The result is a hotel that exudes good vibes.

“It is a hyper-cool place that sublimates the surfing culture.”

The Noah Surf House is located in Santa Cruz, a cute little resort known for its waves. From Lisbon airport, it took us only 40 minutes to reach the hotel. It’s really very fast.

The hotel is right in front of the sea and it features a large annexe on the beach where there are a restaurant and the nautical base. The seawater is quite cold and the waves are very impressive. Swimming here is therefore not very recommended for young children, who will certainly have more fun in the hotel’s swimming pool.

On the other hand, you should know that, on the beach, you can rent small tents at the price of 20€ per day. These traditional Portuguese tents offer the advantage of protection from the sun and provide children with an original playground.


Super cool activities

If you are a family of surfers, this hotel will be your little piece of paradise. But if, like us, you don’t surf, you will still enjoy many other activities! Indeed, a weekly program is dedicated to children: skateboard lessons, cooking workshop, yoga for kids, creative workshop

“A weekly program is dedicated to children: skateboard lessons, cooking workshops, yoga for kids, creative workshops

The Noah Surf House has its own skate park where skateboards are available free of charge and also features its own surf school where lessons are offered for adults and children.

Kids are also invited to collect eggs in the henhouse and pick vegetables in the vegetable garden, while adults enjoy free lessons (Pilates, yoga, body pump, etc.). To get together and share a moment as a family, bicycles are available on loan: a friendly way to discover the surrounding area.


Good vibes

The hotel strives to reduce its environmental footprint as much as possible and promotes the pleasure of the moment. That’s why you won’t find TV or air conditioning in the rooms. Music lovers will be delighted to discover a Bluetooth hi-fi system that broadcasts its music throughout the room.

The rooms are divided into two categories: bungalows and pavilions. Some bungalows feature a small kitchen. The rooms have a very original decoration and are all suitable for children. The children’s beds look like cabins. Wonder guaranteed!

 The restaurant’s menu offers healthy dishes prepared with local products. You can also share delicious tapas or enjoy a pizza straight from the traditional oven.

In the evening, we enjoyed the bohemian chic atmosphere on the deck overlooking the sea. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail around the fire basket.

During our stay, we met many families from Portugal, France, Switzerland and Germany. All of them seemed to have the same philosophy: sharing precious moments in a relaxed way and celebrating life.


I highly recommend you to stay at the Noah Surf House. Whether it is for a short stay or a longer vacation, this place will positively affect your mind and regenerate you.
