The Retreat at Blue Lagoon


Exclusive access to a wellness paradise.

The soothing geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon are one of Iceland’s most popular attractions. Stay at The Retreat and you’ll have them all to yourself.

Step into the hotel’s own private section of the lagoon for a secluded soak in the utmost peace and privacy. As steam wafts upwards from the balmy waters, you’re sure to feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

Inside your suite you’ll find a freestanding bathtub from which to soak up the floor-to-ceiling views of moss-coloured lava fields or blue-hued waters. Each is designed in minimalist Scandinavian style and comes with its own balcony or terrace. For the ultimate treat, choose the two-room Lagoon Suite, where you’ll have direct access to your very own portion of the lagoon.

Carved out of volcanic rock beneath the 800-year-old lava flow, the subterranean spa is a highlight. Treatments are based around the lagoon’s defining elements of silica, algae and minerals. Most unique are the in-water rituals. Lie back on a floating mattress as your head and scalp are gently massaged. It’s an experience like no other that will leave you nourished and cleansed.

Moss Restaurant is a celebration of Iceland’s culinary heritage. Located at the highest part of the hotel, panoramic views of the rugged landscape complement the seasonal ingredients. From fresh lobster to local reindeer, everything is locally sourced. You’ll need to reserve a space at the 10-seat Chef’s Table for the seven-course tasting menu.

The Retreat at Blue Lagoon is just 25 minutes from Keflavik airport, making it an ideal beginning or end to your Iceland trip. Surrounded by a volcanic frontier and circled by the lagoon’s mineral-rich waters, central Reykjavik is a 45-minute drive.
