As if plucked from a stylish European alpine village, dropped onto a remote patch of rock in the Atlantic and blended seamlessly into the rugged Icelandic countryside, Hotel Ranga is a beautiful accompaniment to its stunning volcanic surroundings – and as one of only a few four-star accommodations outside of Reykjavik, rest assured its charm extends to its interior too.
The hotel’s remote location is one of its biggest credits – set off to explore picturesque South Iceland and the multitude of geothermal natural phenomena that lie within driving distance, while using the Ranga as a base. Return after the day’s activities for romantic evenings at the superb restaurant and relax in a private, open air hot tub as you watch for the ethereal dancing ribbons of the northern lights.
The pine panelled floors and walls are smart and inviting, warm fires and chandeliers banish the cooler weather outside and the staff are welcoming – you’re even greeted in reception by a giant stuffed polar bear. The 51 rooms are decked out with comfortable modern furnishings and range in size and lavishness, so there’s always something to suit individual tastes.
