The Retreat at Blue Lagoon
This sleek and luxurious spa resort was built into Iceland’s volcanic frontier and offers exclusive access to the famous Blue Lagoon.
%%excerpt%% A review of the hip Canopy Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland, which features quintessentially Scandinavian design, with bright and lively common spaces and minimal yet comfortable rooms.
A product of Reykjavik’s burgeoning design scene, the Konsulat Hotel is a stylish reflection of Icelandic tradition. The 50-room property, part of Hilton’s Curio Collection brand, is centrally located on the site of a former department store. The sophisticated décor fosters a gentleman’s club ambience, with bronze fixtures, herringbone headboards, vintage steamer trunks and tufted-leather upholstery. As a quirky local touch, the tiles in the bathroom recall the star motif of a classic Icelandic wool sweater.
After a day of outdoor adventure, guests can retreat to the hotel’s bath house—which includes a sauna and hot tub as well as a gym—located one floor below street level. The hotel is also home to Gott, a family-owned restaurant with an additional outpost on the Westman Islands.
Families should note that there is only one twin-bedded room, though connecting rooms can be reserved. Those traveling with little ones can also book a Deluxe Room, many of which have pull-out sofa beds. The most spacious accommodation is the Diplomat Suite, a corner option with a separate living room and private terrace.
