Iceland has a soon-to-be opened new luxury hotel built into an 800-year-old moss-covered lava flow in Blue Lagoon. The Lava Cove and Moss Hotel constitutes of chic, minimalistic decors while integrating geothermal seawater since 1226 in the lagoon and spa.

The Lava Lagoon is said to be "sourced from the same volcanic aquifer of geothermal seawater" found in the Blue Lagoon where its thermal baths had been open to public bathing 30 years ago. Meanwhile, the Cove's spa will have guests warmed up with natural geo heat, drip ceilings, and sea salts as products from the thermal waters.

According to the team behind the hotel, "Conceived and created to transport your mind and body to new dimensions of peace and rejuvenation, the Lava Cove spa journey moves through volcanic realms of luxurious heat, enchanting geology, and inspiring conceptual design." The sauna is heated up by the dry heat of hot rocks while the steam cove purifies weary travelers with vapor from its lava rocks.

With eco designs powered by sustainable energy from the mineral-rich waters of the Lagoon, the Moss Hotel has 62 rooms for comfort, and has terraces giving access to the lagoon waters. From its Moss Rooms and Suites, the establishment promises the guests to have a perfect view of the volcanic horizon.

Other amenities include the Lounge and the Library with wood-burning fireplaces on top of refresh rooms and falling waters where people can enjoy sipping tea or coffee. The Moss Restaurant boasts of Iceland's culinary heritage, particularly with the produce coming from the country's own mountains and geothermal greenhouses.

The culinary journey is not complete without visiting the Wine Cellar, formed from multi-hued lava that erupted in the year 1226. If this still doesn't impress you, the Hotel is actually just a 10-minute walk from teh breathtaking Blue Lagoon.
