Carved out from millennia-old volcanic rock and filled with six million litres of naturally warm, mineral-rich seawater the Blue Lagoon is Iceland’s favourite tourist attraction. Escape the crowds with this design hotel stay where you’ll have exclusive access to a private geothermal lagoon.

It features the same waters that are pumped for more than a mile underground to its older brother meaning soothing soaks, minus the masses. And, with more than a nod towards Nordic design sensibilities, the hotel’s rugged surroundings are offset by uncompromisingly clean lines and forward-thinking architectural features. All this, only a few minutes away from Reykjavík Airport.

Eat

Taking inspiration from the restorative qualities of its blue centrepiece, the hotel’s LAVA Restaurant features wholesome menus, created using only natural, Icelandic ingredients. Built into a jagged lava cliff, diners are treated to a la carte feasts with views over the lagoon. Think smoked haddock and langoustine starters followed by a rib eye main dressed in wild mushrooms and Dijon mustard. Gourmet lunches are equally indulgent with speciality seafood featuring prominently. The complimentary breakfasts are a welcome touch. For something lighter, the Blue Café serves sandwiches, salads and freshly made sushi along with an array of healthy snacks.

Sleep

Having won several design awards, you can expect contemporary interiors in each of the hotel’s 35 bright and spacious rooms. Timber laminate floors host innovative chairs, plush standalone beds and blonde wood furnishings. They also all feature a private verandah that makes the most of the hotel’s unique location with views out across the surrounding lava fields. You’ll also be treated to free WiFi and regularly resupplied fresh towels and bathrobes to use for getting in and out of the lagoon. Don’t forget to apply the silica mud to your body and face; when washed off, you’ll find your skin noticeably softer.

Do

Of course the hotel’s lagoon takes centre stage. Soak stiff muscles in the man-made waterfall, go for a dip in the steam baths or sweat it out in the sauna. You’ll even be able to make use of a swim-up bar where ice-cool smoothies are served alongside wines and beers. There’s also a lagoon-side relaxation area where lounge seating, spa music and stunning views make for long, lazy afternoons. Alternatively, make use of a complimentary gym facilities and the included single admission to the main Blue Lagoon before retiring to the Exclusive Lounge. Here, private shower rooms, designer furniture, fireplaces and outdoor decks are all served by attentive staff. Don’t miss out on the spa treatments that range from salt and silica rubs to beauty treatments and in-water massages.
