Super relaxed Boho Beach Hotel directly on the beach of Santa Cruz on the west coast of Portugal. The Noah Surf House is perfect for families with children, but also for hip Twenty- and Thirtysomethings who want to get out for a long weekend.

Cork serves as insulation material in the house, the infinity pool is heated with solar cells, rainwater is collected and used for flushing the toilets and watering the plants. Most of the food served for breakfast or in the restaurant comes from the house's own organic garden, and the napkins are made of compostable paper.
