The Retreat, Blue Lagoon Iceland
When you stay at The Retreat, taking the Blue Lagoon Ritual is an essential experience. It’s a specific spa treatment regime the like of which you can’t find anywhere else. They say it ‘opens up new horizons of serenity and wellbeing’, and it’s backed by compelling scientific evidence.
You’ll be immersing your body in the three, revitalising elements of the hot geothermal seawater that Iceland is famous for harnessing. First, it’s silica that scrubs and brings radiance. Next, algae, for its anti-ageing and nourishing properties. And then minerals, to exfoliate and refresh.
All this takes place in the hushed chambers of the Blue Lagoon spa carved into the volcanic coastal rock of The Retreat, a peninsula some 45 miles from Reykjavik. You can also experience a massage while unwinding in the water itself.
What of the Blue Lagoon resort? Well, there’s nothing quite like the Blue Lagoon Suite, a stunning 232sq m complex of rooms with its own private section of lagoon as your vista through floor-to-ceiling windows – a weird meeting of moss-covered lava walls and warm blue water at your personal disposal. With butler service as and when you want anything, and a private terrace, you can drift away in your own land/seascape as your body tingles with natural invigoration.
