The Team

The Location: A Modern Design Hotel above the Ocean

Renowned as one of the best hotels in Ericeira, our hotel is a secluded property surrounded by nature, gazes over the Atlantic from a cliff. At Aethos Ericeira we drew inspiration from the tones and textures of the surrounding beaches, dunes and cliffs; and sought to maximize views of the ocean with large windows and natural light. Enjoy spectacular views of the Atlantic from a private terrace or step outside into a private garden. Our Suites and Rooms blend nature and modernist architecture that both feel comfortable and inspiring. Designed with clean lines, the calming interior features a king-size bed, a living area, and a bathroom with a walk-in rainfall shower and a separate toilet.

Culinary Delights: A taste of sea with a touch of land

ONDA’s vibrant and delicious dishes are shareable, sustainable, and seasonable. We pay homage to the land and the sea, by sourcing produce from local farms and seafood fresh off the fishing boats from Peniche Harbour. Whether you settle with a classic cocktail or a wine from our extensive wine list, our bar menu leaves nothing to be desired.

Wellness Amenities: Wellbeing for all senses

Find balance on our stunning meditation deck overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Relax and unwind in our Spa while experiencing mind-body healing properties with the rituals of hammam. Or simply sunbathe by our stone-trimmed saltwater pool. There’s a bit of magic for everyone at Aethos Ericeira. Bottom line, when or if you must go home, a piece of Ericeira will forever be ingrained in your body and soul.
