Blue Lagoon Clinic
240 Grindavík, Iceland
There a very few places that are more quintessentially Iceland than the Blue Lagoon. What a way for us to end our time in Iceland, but definitely wish we had longer. From the moment we checked in it really felt like we were at an exclusive luxurious hotel.
If you want the crowds you can move to the main Blue Lagoon after 5 pm using your complimentary free pass, but we opted for the peacefulness and exclusiveness of this pool. They provide you with flip flops, bathrobes and floating rings. It was a truly magical and unique experience, where else can you treat yourself to a white silica mud mask? The only word we could use to describe this experience – surreal.
Whilst this hotel may seem isolated, it is the perfect way to end your vacation in Iceland given its amenities and proximity to the airport.
All rooms offer a glazed wall and with an external door for you to take in the views. The shower room was amazing, from all of the hotels we have stayed in, this room was by far the largest and best designed. Every bit of furnishing used in the room was a perfect fit and with only 35 rooms on offer, this really was the exclusive stay we wanted.
The staff were friendly and accommodating. The entire place has a very peaceful spa feel and the calmness of the staff reflects that also.
FOOD and DRINK:
The Clinic offers a beautiful surrounding of moss covered rocks with its own private geothermal pool for guests only. While there is no bar at the pool, they do have people on standby ready to take your drinks order. Unfortunately, there is no restaurant here so you will need to make your way to the Lava restaurant (reservations only) down the path at the main Blue Lagoon. Breakfast (continental only) was traditional and lovely, with plenty of cold cuts of meat, cheese, skyr yoghurt, salmon, wholegrain bread, fruit salad and unlimited flavoured water, tea and coffee.
Our review is based on our stay March 2016.
