My husband and I went to Iceland for our honeymoon and because the Blue Lagoon was a huge reason we decided to go, we splurged and got the 3 hour Romance Package in the Exclusive Lounge. Best decision ever!!
The staff made us feel like VIPs from the moment we stepped in the door. We were escorted to our private changing area, which included a large shower, robes, flip-flops, towels, lotions, other toiletries and we even had access to change the volume of our music playing in the room. When I booked the package I wasn't clear on what exactly the set up was, but there are 6 of the change rooms like we had, and 2 bathrooms for the people in those rooms to use (so 12 ppl max in the exclusive lounge). When you're ready, you go down a flight of stairs into the lounge. There's a fire place, lounge chairs, coffee, fruit, chocolates, and a private lagoon that is only for the lounge members. It was amazing!! We had booked 60 minute salt scrub and glow massages which are done outside the private area. At first it's intimidating but once you get in the water and the massage starts it's all relaxation. I was worried that my husband would find it awkward, but he loved it just as much as I did. In hindsight it would have been nice if we scheduled the massages outside of our lounge time because although we were there for almost 4 hours, the time flew by.
After our massages, we ordered dinner and drinks directly to the lounge and it was very good. We ate in our robes and because there were only a couple other people using the lounge at the time it was very private. It felt like we had the whole thing to ourselves! After dinner we were each given a lava scrub and an algae mask which felt great.
I purposely left my comments about the staff until the end because the person who was dedicated to the lounge deserves a special shout out. I wish I had written down his name, I think it may have been Askor but I could be wrong. Regardless, the service he provided was top notch. He made us feel so comfortable, and was ready to get us anything we needed before we even asked. After our massages, he came out to the lagoon to tell us we didn't have to go back for original robes that we had hung up - he just brought us new ones so it was easier for us. He arranged our table and chairs for our private dinner, and brought in a waiter from the restaurant (she was also very nice), took pictures for us, and went on a hunt for those scrubs that we got at the end - yes some of this was just included in the package, but it was his customer service that really made our experience over the top. It didn't feel like he was just doing his job, it felt like he was genuinely happy for us and he really helped us get our trip started off on the best foot possible. As my husband was paying, he even took me into the store and helped me find the algae mask that we had used. I ended up buying some skin care - it really did make my face feel great.
When we go back to Iceland some day, we will go to the Blue Lagoon and we will definitely splurge on the Romance Package again. No question it is expensive, but with everything you get out of it the experience is so worth it!!
