The RIDE hotel is ideally located by the seaside, near Baléal Beach, Peniche, Portugal.
The quality of life here leaves hardly any room for stress. The mild, sunny climate allows people to spend more time outdoors and soak up the sunshine and vitamin D.
Portugal enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year, making it the sunniest country in Europe.

In terms of food, Portugal abounds with small market gardens, and Peniche is one of the regions with the best-quality market produce on offer. These low-yield crops that use little or no pesticides result in highquality produce that is both tasty and nutritious.

Proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, a natural source of iodine and salt spray, further adds to the local quality of life. This is why we would like to invite you to come and discover the benefits of Portugal as a healthy-living destination.

Interesting fact: the Berlengas Archipelago and the town of Peniche were declared a biosphere reserve by the UNESCO International Coordinating Council of the Man and the Biosphere Program in 2011.

A program that combines well-being and health

The current pandemic crisis requires us to be resilient so that we can beat it more easily. Pairing health and wellness
with responsible tourism is the perfect combination for an unforgettable experience.

In this regard, the RIDE Hotel “Synergy+“ program is tailored to provide you with health and wellness services in order to encourage good habits and a healthy lifestyle for good physical and mental health.

And so, in addition to conventional doctor’s appointments, the program includes alternative therapies for an integrated preventive and holistic approach.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified excessive or chronic stress as the health epidemic of the 21st century, with an impact on physical and mental health. Therefore, our program equally includes activities to improve motivation and relaxation, such as coaching, meditation, massages, reiki, yoga, as well as outdoor sports, such as surfing, mountain biking, coastal hikes (walks by the seashore). All this promotes general well-being and vitamin
D synthesis.

This personalized, multidisciplinary program offers services and therapies from the most diverse fields of health, some of which are recognized and proven to be effective.

The 4- or 7-day format of the “Synergy+“ program will allow you to relax and recharge your internal batteries

A responsible stay

“I look after myself, but not at the expense of nature and others.“

As a hotel that welcomes guests from all over the world, we want to do good. This is why we have created RIDE Hotel compensation and reward “tokens”. The more responsible things you do at the hotel, the more rewards you will receive. As a hotel, our goal is not to be faultless, but to create a positive dynamic.

These tokens are given out free of charge on the basis of what you do, and will go into a charity kitty. You will be able to choose a local and/or international social or environmental association that will receive a donation.

Have you come from far away to visit us? We will reward you with these tokens for your journey by plane, train, or car. They will then be allocated to one of the associations that the RIDE Hotel supports. Please don’t hesitate to ask our Green Manager for more information on this concept that is unique to the world (for now…).


An adapted menu

Nutrition is essential for better health. Our wellness program includes a consultation with a nutritionist, and the design of healthy menus, tailor-made for each guest’s personal goals, needs, and tastes.

The menu is based essentially on the Mediterranean diet, which is typical of our location, and is a prominent feature of traditional Portuguese cuisine.

The Mediterranean diet was inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2013, as it is one of the healthiest and most sustainable food systems in the world, due to its unique characteristics.
