The Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon is a health and geothermal spa on the Reykjanes Peninsula.
A visit to the Blue Lagoon Iceland geothermal spa is an important part of your stay in Iceland.
Guests renew their relationship with nature, soak up the scenic beauty and enjoy breathing the clean, fresh air while relaxing in the warm geothermal seawater. It is no surprise that the readers of “Conde Nast Traveller” voted Blue Lagoon as the best spa worldwide and voted one of 25 wonders of the world by National Geographic. For ten consecutive years Blue Lagoon has been awarded the Blue Flag environmental recognition granted to natural beaches and marinas. The water’s temperature is 37-39°C / 98-102°F. The lagoon holds nine million liters of geothermal seawater. Regular sampling shows that “common” bacteria do not thrive in this ecosystem, thus additional cleansers such as chlorine are not needed.
Make your visit to Blue Lagoon truly special with an unforgettable stay at Silica Hotel. Built in harmony with the surrounding landscape, it offers an oasis of calm, relaxation, and healing. Set in the heart of a stunning lava landscape, Silica Hotel is a just ten-minute walk from the Blue Lagoon. The hotel offers its own private bathing lagoon which is available for hotel guests. The hotel has 35 bright and spacious double/twin rooms. All rooms offer private facilities and a veranda, with breathtaking views of the surrounding lava fields.
The Silica Hotel opened in June 2005 and in 2015 it was redesigned and renovated to it's current state. Modern look and practical solutions characterize its design.
LAVA Restaurant at Blue Lagoon offers a unique dining experience. It is built into the cliff so it features a natural lava wall and the view overlooks the lagoon, adding to its uniqueness.
The chefs take pride in using fresh Icelandic ingredients and the lunch and evening menus range from light dishes to gourmet meals. Try the catch of the day, which is the freshest fish available from the near fishing village Grindavík.
