The contrast of turquoise water and black lava rock can be experienced in peace at the award-winning The Retreat at Blue Lagoon, a luxurious hotel in Grindavík not far from the capital Reykjavik. Here, the impressive 62-suite hotel is a refuge from the sometimes forbidding Icelandic weather. But it’s a place in harmony with its surroundings – the majestic Blue Lagoon. Its light blue shimmering water, from an 800-year-old lava stream, is packed with healing minerals that are particularly good for the skin.
