Each morning, there is a guided yoga session based on various styles of yoga such as Hatha, Vinyasa, and Kundalini.
There are also guided hikes that bring you closer to the landscape, enabling you to explore the striking geological features of Blue Lagoon’s volcanic surroundings.
With an 18-hole golf course just 3 kilometers from Blue Lagoon, golfing is an enticing option during the warmer, brighter months—particularly when the Midnight Sun is shining.
There is also a wide array of adventures available at the Retreat’s doorstep: Tour the stunning volcanic phenomena of the Reykjanes Peninsula in a chauffeur-driven luxury sedan; Experience Iceland from the sky in a private helicopter; Ride an ATV across black sand beaches, sprawling lava fields, and extinct volcanoes. Whether you wish to remain close to the Retreat or venture deeper into Iceland, your host can arrange a tour that suits you.
The beneficial powers of geothermal seawater were first discovered in the early 1980s when local residents began to bathe in the warm blue reservoir that had formed in the shadows of the Svartsengí geothermal power plant. Engineers at the facility had expected the water to seep through the lava and return to the earth’s volcanic aquifers. However, owing to the fluid’s high concentration of silica, proper drainage did not occur and a beautiful body of water took shape.
Conceived for comfort. Designed for serenity. Architected for wellbeing. Encircled by the Blue Lagoon’s revitalizing warmth, suites at the Retreat are arranged on two levels. On the lower level, the suites have terraces with entrancing views of the centuries-old lava and the surrounding lagoon. Some of these suites even give you direct access to the lagoon’s mineral-rich, geothermal waters. On the upper level, each suite is endowed with unforgettable perspectives on the volcanic horizon. But regardless of location, each suite is the foundation of a transformative experience.
The timeless majesty of the moss-covered lava fields—radiant, pristine, ever-changing. The exquisite tranquility of two rooms that unlock the harmonic interplay of design and nature. Each Moss Suite becomes the centerpiece of an otherworldly perspective and a transformative experience.
Moss Junior Suite
Walls of glass open up to panoramic vistas of ever-changing moss. Sweeping lava fields unfold into the volcanic horizon.
