Tucked deeply among one of Iceland’s most arresting mountain ranges yet only a brief scurry to the capital, UMI Hotel merges the best of the country’s two worlds. Whether seeking a mountain or an ocean view, every room is perched above the unspoiled nature of Iceland’s southern region, its prized sub-glacial volcano, and the distant Westman Islands.

As a family-owned and run hotel, UMI offers guests more than amenities, luxury, and easy access to Iceland’s natural gems; personal touches abound, from the warm palette of the hotel’s interior as designed by one of the family members, to Breki the family dog, who is at home at UMI and family to all those who pass through.
Luxuriate beside the Svaðbælisá river, which sits adjacent to the hotel and flows year-round, or get to know the UMI family a bit better—they love to get to know their guests. Complete with a restaurant offering daily breakfast buffets, a bar beside a raging fireplace, and rooms complete with luxury amenities such as Marshall bluetooth speakers, UMI strikes a perfect balance of privacy, elegance, and family hospitality while serving as a quintessentially Icelandic jump-off point into the region’s natural riches that await to be explored.
