We are expanding our horizons
Blue Lagoon has embarked on an expansion that includes a redesign and enlargement of the main lagoon, as well as the construction of a retreat encompassing an underground spa, 62 elegant guest suites, and a restaurant.
Located in the lava field west of the lagoon, the work area is within view of the main spa. The sights and sounds of construction equipment are a reality of visiting the Blue Lagoon during the months of our expansion. But we aim to minimize the impact of this work on the experiences of our guests.
The project is scheduled to be completed in phases and will be finished in 2017.
The lagoon expansion phase was completed in January, 2016. The lagoon grew by half and is now 8700 square meters and has a volume of 9 million liters. This expansion was comprised of four principal elements:
- The addition of Silica Mud Bar where guests can experience the rejuvenating powers of the Blue Lagoon's iconic mineral: silica
- The addition of an area for enhanced tranquility and relaxation
- The addition of an area for experiencing in-water spa treatments in a serene, meditative environment
- The renovation of guest facilities and refreshment areas
The goal of the lagoon expansion is to enhance the experience of each guest. The goal of the retreat is to create a place where nature, design, and hospitality become one, opening the door to an unparalleled journey of relaxation, rejuvenation, and exploration.
