Returning guests and the staff still remembers us from previous visit. One of its kind destination. Just enjoy the peace and tranquility of the private lagoon under the stars. Your own spa treatment with no time limit. Lovely and spacious room and the freshest of drinking water. Go ahead and jump in and enjoy the Blue Lagoon clinc

This is our 2nd time to Iceland and our 2nd time staying here. We loved the privacy of your own lagoon which is only available for use when you stay at the clinic. It is a much smaller version of the Blue Lagoon but much quieter and enjoyable The Blue Lagoon clinic offers cold breakfast in the mornings and you...

Not clear what's the difference between Standard and Deluxe rooms apart from the price. I booked a deluxe double for plus one teenager (3 people). However, the room was only prepared for two. A bed set and a robe were missing. Slippers NOT provided at all. Provided snacks and drinks in the fridge were NOT free. It's Pay As You...

The only place to start or end your Icelandic adventure. It feels like you have arrived on the set of "Space 1999" - or the moon to the younger generation! So relaxing - yes it's a bit expensive but well worth it. Rooms are clean and simple, as is the rest of the "hotel". Breakfast is plentiful and there is...

So our intention here was to get a stop over hotel before having an afternoon at the Blue Lagoon - I never would have imagined that this hotel is basically the Blue Lagoon but far better. The power station that provides the water that created the Blue Lagoon is right across the parking lot from the hotel and this is...

We arrived at the blue lagoon by bus only to find out that we were quite a distance away from the hotel. Whilst this was Reykjavik excursions fault, the hotel have reportedly had problems with this and indeed another couple we met later that day said they had the same problem. It involved walking walking through rough walk paths with...

When booking the shuttle service , Ensure it drops you off at the clinic and not the blue lagoon geothermal spa. It will save you about 8 mins of walk and a lot of trouble if you don't want to end up dragging your luggage through the snow. Otherwise you may want to just pack your essentials to the clinic...

This is a very unique hotel with a price tag to go along with it. From the perspective of comfort, design, cleanliness, and service level you can probably find that elsewhere in Iceland with other 3 to 4 four stars hotels. Where it is unique is the private geothermal pool inside the hotel. In my opinion, it is much better...

It's a nice hotel with few guest. There is a private lagoon for guest so it's convenient if you don't want to squeeze with the crowd in the main lagoon. Only draw back is it is far from restaurant (the receptionist also didn't direct us properly as there is a short cut with the corridors of our rooms). However, the...

We stayed here on the 1st night we touched down in Iceland. It was a short drive from airport and hence a much needed place for us to rest after spending more than 20 hours on planes/airports. The selling point of this place is probably the private lagoon which is aka of the popular Blue Lagoon. Some said to give...
