The Retreat at Blue Lagoon is so wonderful.
A lot so that each time we go to Iceland we all the time make it a degree to remain on the Blue Lagoon.
It’s really one thing of a practice now as a result of it’s what we did on the primary journey and as we’ve such fond recollections of it, it’s turn out to be a must-do on each journey to Iceland.
It’s additionally actually near the airport so it additionally feels fairly sensible too.
Our relaxed day earlier than turned out to not be so relaxed however having the ability to see puffins so shut (and without spending a dime – with none excursions) and in addition Dyrhólaey (lastly!) meant that downtime in The Retreat at Blue Lagoon was one thing we had been wanting ahead to a lot that we confirmed up 3 hours earlier than check-in even opened.
Let me present you across the room and the overall space right here.
The rooms are completely attractive however in that stripped-back minimalist means Iceland and quite a lot of the Nordic nations are well-known for.
There’s champagne to welcome you within the room and every little thing within the minibar is included together with your keep – even the alcoholic drinks.
And all of it will get topped up/changed within the night with the turndown service.
On this journey, we really initially tried to e book the Silica Resort at Blue Lagoon however as I discussed in this put up right here, resort bookings in Iceland in summer time are wild.
So many had bought out and the Silica Resort at The Blue Lagoon was certainly one of them.
This left us with The Retreat at Blue Lagoon to e book and in order that’s how we ended up staying there.
The Retreat at Blue Lagoon nevertheless simply take issues up a notch in comparison with The Silica Resort at Blue Lagoon.
A number of notches really.
For starters, you’re welcomed with champagne whereas the check-in workers all flutter round you to ensure you have every little thing you want.
The primary spa is right here and it has this factor referred to as The Rituals which is sort of a pores and skin cleaning and rejuvenation therapy which, to be sincere, I kinda initially rolled my eyes at.
I believe I used to be simply sceptical as a result of I’ve been to so many spas the place individuals attempt to promote this concept of supplying you with this unimaginable therapy that’s distinctive to them however really has you feeling no completely different to another spa and even such as you had been to a spa to start with.
Nonetheless, we had been right here and I made a decision we’d need to attempt it.
It’s so value it by the way in which.
Your pores and skin feels so unimaginable after and even for days after, I’d overlook that we’d performed it and marvel why my pores and skin appears to be like and feels so good after which the recollections of the therapy we’d had right here would come flooding again.
I can’t advocate it sufficient.
You aren’t allowed to take photographs within the spa so I can’t present you a lot there.
There’s additionally a non-public blue lagoon space that solely friends of The Retreat at Blue Lagoon can go to (it’s also possible to if you’re paying to go to the spa) and I realise now that you’re not allowed to take photographs there however we really did whereas we had been there.
To be truthful, it was pretty late and there was nobody else round so it didn’t actually make a lot of a distinction.
It did really feel so good to have nobody else round although as a result of it kinda felt like we had the entire place all to ourselves.
Afternoon tea can also be supplied as a part of your keep right here and other than that and a go to to the restaurant for dinner, we just about spent all the day simply enjoyable within the quite heat waters of The Retreat at Blue Lagoon.
It was magnificent.
It was additionally the right relaxation cease earlier than re-attempting to hike to the close by erupting volcano.
