Blue Lagoon Iceland (Grindavík, Iceland) is celebrating the completion of its recent expansion, which features the much-anticipated opening of The Retreat at Blue Lagoon Iceland. Complete with the subterranean Retreat Spa and a geothermal Retreat Lagoon, the 62-suite Retreat Hotel was designed to be a place where guests can enter a timeless realm of relaxation, rejuvenation, and exploration.
“We’re proud to finally be able to share the Retreat at Blue Lagoon Iceland with the world,” says Grímur Sæmundsen, founder and CEO of Blue Lagoon Iceland. “Our team and partners have worked extremely hard to bring this luxury experience to life and we are all beyond excited to welcome guests to our new property.”
At the Retreat, guests are welcomed by individual hosts that are available throughout the stay to assist guests in all aspects of their trip, whether it be managing itineraries, confirming spa treatments, booking local excursions, and more. Truly of the volcanic earth, the Retreat is carved into an 800-year-old lava flow, encompassing guests with natural elements of the local terrain. Thanks to its unique location, the spa at the Retreat has created a new experience using the mineral-rich waters that surround and run through the Retreat to bring guests to harmony with nature as well as revitalize the body and senses. Facilities of the spa include both dry heat and steam heat rooms, a panoramic viewing deck, a cold air well, massage offerings, and more.
The lagoon offers guests waters filled with blue algae which renews, nourishes, and moisturizes skin; mineral salt, which exfoliates skin and stimulates circulation; and silica, which cleanses and strengthens the skin to give swimmers a fresh and radiant appearance. For those who can’t get to Iceland, an online shop offers skincare products that feature the lagoon’s natural, active ingredients.
