Hotel Rangá is a luxury countryside hotel and the only 4 star resort in Southern Iceland. It offers all the facilities and services of a modern resort and a few more. Located about an hour drive from Reykjavík, between the towns of Hella and Hvolsvöllur, it lies just off the main road right in middle of South Iceland’s panoramic scenery.
The resort is built in log-cabin style and has through the years acquired an excellent reputation for its gourmet food, accommodation and service. It is the first Icelandic hotel to become a member of the prestigious international hotel chain Great Hotels of the World.
A celebrity hot spot, top honeymoon destination and favorite hotel amongst Icelanders both in winter and summer, Hotel Rangá also offers great facilities for small business meetings, weddings and social gatherings, as well as being well located for adventure tours and various attractions, including Eyjafjallajökull, the Golden Circle and the Glacier Lagoon (Jökulsárlón).
One cannot miss feeling welcome entering its warm interior where relaxed countryside feeling meets the professional ambition of pleasing its entire clientele. Upon entering Hotel Rangá, you will be greeted by a towering 10-foot tall polar bear named Hrammur that resides in the lobby. He is a favorite model for photographers and is definitely one of the most pictured objects in Iceland. This is just a prelude to the relaxing ambience that you will encounter that vibrates throughout the hotel.
Hotel Rangá presently has 51 luxuriously decorated rooms and suites. It also features an acclaimed riverside restaurant for fine dining, a lounge and bar, 2 upstairs meeting rooms, a game room, massage facilities and three much beloved outdoor hot tubs heated with geothermal water — where there is an excellent chance to view the fantastic Northern Lights during September through April and enjoy a time of relaxation and great experiences. The Hotel also has a first class observatory for stargazing.
