Health-Focused Lagoon Retreats
For a nourishing and design-driven lagoon retreat experience, one need not look farther than the Blue Lagoon resort — a travel destination which is located within the UNESCO Global Geopark. The complex recently underwent an expansion that is meant to elevate the hotel to "an epicenter for health and wellbeing." The project is headed by Basalt Architects in collaboration with Design Group Italia.
The new architectural and service additions to the lagoon retreat are meant to harness the healing powers of the surrounding pools of water, which contain "geothermal seawater [that is] rich in minerals like silica and sulfur."
Basalt Architects carefully surveys the existing natural landscape and focuses on creating a layout for the lagoon retreat that will elevate the guest's experience without disrupting the organic formations of the beautiful site.
