Healing Focus

The Ion Luxury Adventure Hotel was designed to help you connect with the wild nature of Iceland. This connection to the natural world is expressed in every aspect of the hotel, from the spa with its free-flowing geothermal hot pool and treatments using Icelandic herbs; the food, with its emphasis on local ingredients; and the design and construction of the hotel, which uses sustainable eco-friendly principles and local natural materials.

The spa has been designed so you can appreciate jaw-dropping views while you enjoy your treatment; then once you’re done, take a soak in the outdoor pool for a full-immersion Icelandic experience. Whether you’re looking for a base for your explorations, or a relaxing luxury hotel and spa experience with the natural world right outside your window, Ion Adventure Hotel is a unique way to reconnect with wild nature.

„Explore the rugged natural beauty of the land of fire and ice, then relax and rebalance in Ion’s stunning spa.“
  • Silence
  • Mountains
  • Nature


The Ion Luxury Adventure Hotel is an iconic example of minimalist Icelandic design, set in a stunning landscape. The beautiful building floats high above lava fields, surrounded by mountains and hot springs. The interiors are minimal and stylish, using a mix of natural and recycled materials, including lava, found wood, and Icelandic wool. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable as well as sustainable, with king-size hypoallergenic beds, fair-trade organic linen, private bath with environmentally responsible water-saving shower systems, plus the in-room amenities from Soley Organics use Icelandic herbs.

There are stunning views from many of the rooms, but the best views are to be found in the spa and the Northern Lights bar: with glass walls on three sides, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing drink and watch the skies.
