Blue Lagoon Iceland has announced a temporary suspension of operations across its renowned geothermal spa and associated facilities in a decisive move prioritising safety and well-being. This closure, effective November 9 until 07:00 November 16, encompasses the Blue Lagoon, Silica Hotel, Retreat Spa, Retreat Hotel, Lava, and Moss Restaurant.
Despite the Icelandic authorities maintaining the current level of uncertainty without escalation during this period of increased seismic activity, Blue Lagoon’s management has chosen to err on the side of caution. “Our commitment to the safety and comfort of our guests and staff is unwavering,” a spokesperson for Blue Lagoon Iceland stated. “This precautionary measure, though not mandated, reflects our ethos of putting well-being first.”
This proactive step is not just about adhering to safety protocols. It’s also a strategic move to ensure that the guest experience remains uninterrupted and serene without the looming worry of seismic developments. Additionally, this period allows the company to relieve the sustained pressure on their employees, ensuring their mental and physical well-being during these uncertain times.
Blue Lagoon Iceland will work closely with local authorities and the Icelandic Meteorological Office during the closure to monitor the seismic activity. The decision to reopen will be based on comprehensive assessments and the latest developments, ensuring guests can return to a safe and relaxing environment.
