Conjoined with one of Iceland’s most iconic attractions yet a world away, this exclusive oasis combines high luxury with modern design. Local textures that accentuate a pure and minimalist aesthetic are at the heart of The Retreat’s décor: floor-to-ceiling windows, slate walls and stone floors, and a private lagoon tucked between mounds of mossy rock just outside your doorstep.

Blue Lagoon visitors needn’t look any further for a sophisticated, luxurious retreat to spend the night (or five). Featuring double rooms and suites with private balconies and panoramic views of the mossy, volcanic terrain, design is minimalistic yet chicly stylish, with room accents such as a warm wooden bookshelf, a large, standalone bathtub, and a form-fitting reading chair.
Find your footing on one of The Retreat’s organised group hikes, or partake in a daily yoga class while watching the vibrant blues of the lagoon water rush beneath you. Grab a drink in the lounge or the wine cellar, or perhaps just enjoy an afternoon Icelandic coffee, where warm reading lights illuminate an intelligent, focused interior. An on-site restaurant offers a wide range of delicacies, where the chef's table can be booked for the liveliest of occasions.
The Retreat fully embodies its name. It’s a sanctuary in all respects—unique and warm, dripping in the earthy hues of the lagoon, a true visual treat for the design-oriented and an opulent pause for the comfort-seeking.
