Shortly after the opening of the Svartsengi power plant in 1976, the runoff water had made pools. In 1981, a psoriasis patient bathed in the water and noted that the water alleviated his symptoms and the lagoon subsequently became popular. Bathing facilities opened in 1987 and in 1992 the Blue Lagoon company was established.
On 17th of May 2016 we opened Diamond Suites the very first 5 star hotel in Iceland. Diamond Suites consist of 5 luxury suites, each one of them individually designed and decorated, using only luxurious furniture, materials and equipment.
