Retreat at the Blue Lagoon

Last updated: 27 January, 2023

If a dip in the fabled Blue Lagoon isn’t enough of a spoil, then for the ultimate indulgence, book a night at this swanky spa hotel, located just a few steps from the lagoon’s western edge. Rooms are beautifully decorated, with expansive glass windows offering views over the Reykjanes lava fields of the lagoon.

There are three upscale restaurants to choose from – the Michelin-rated Moss, Lava or the Spa Restaurant.

Everything here is designed to indulge your every whim, from morning yoga sessions to spa treatments and massages. A section of the lagoon is reserved solely for guests’ use.

Don't miss

The Retreat at the Blue Lagoon offers a therapeutic massage, on a floating mattress within the healing waters of these world-famous geothermal springs, surrounded by extraordinary volcanic landscapes. After, you head for the steam chamber, hewn from a lava rock cave, with urns full of enriching pea-green algae, bright-white silica and crystalline exfoliant – all locally sourced.
