Built directly into an 800-year-old lava flow in the heart of the Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark, the Retreat encompasses a subterranean spa, geothermal lagoon, a restaurant that reimagines Iceland’s culinary traditions, and a 62-suite luxury hotel encircled by the Blue Lagoon’s mineral-rich waters.
The Retreat’s architecture and design harmonize with the otherworldly volcanic surroundings, erasing the boundary between man and nature. The result is a destination where the seamless interplay of lava, moss, and water is woven into every facet of the guest journey.
Covering more than 4000 square meters and descending three meters into the volcanic earth, the Retreat Spa opens new dimensions of tranquility and transformation, giving guests the ability to commune with the natural wonders of geothermal seawater in an exclusive, sublime environment.
The dynamic, sustainable relationship between man and nature is the cornerstone of Blue Lagoon's philosophy. This relationship informs every aspect of the Retreat experience. From the healing water that fills the lagoon to the electricity that lights the complex, every coordinate of the visitor journey draws its power from the earth’s geothermal resources. In short, wellness at the Retreat is inseparable from the wellspring of renewable energy brought forth at the Svartsengi Resource Park.
