Best hotel near Blue Lagoon, Iceland
After you land a hot dog (or two), there’s a good chance a trip to the Blue Lagoon will be the next on your Icelandic itinerary. However, this is also the case with the other two million visitors exceeding the country’s population by seven to one.
For those looking for a more private experience of the Nat Geo-Certified a wonder of the world, there’s The Retreat, a soon-to-open resort tucked away in its own cove, away from the splash of tourists.
“Retirement at Blue Lagoon Iceland has been on the horizon for many years, and we are honored to share it with the world … while remaining respectful of our incredible natural environment and the founding principles of the Blue Lagoon”, Grimur Saemundsen , Founder and CEO of Blue Lagoon Iceland, says in the announcement.
Choose from 62 different suites, some offering stunning views of the area and others on the lower level giving guests direct access to the water itself. (Book the Lagoon Suite and you can go straight from your room to your own private moat.)
And speaking of these pylsur Hot Dogs: Once you’ve had your fill, head to the chef’s table at the resort’s upscale restaurant, Moss, which showcases ingredients from the country’s different landscapes.
However, you will have to pay for this stay without a tourist. Room rates (as of April of this year) start at nearly $ 1,500 a night.
