Iceland’s Hotel Ranga joins Small Luxury Hotels of the World

The four-star resort is only one of two properties in Iceland considered and added to the exclusive SLH portfolio.

HELLA, ICELAND – Hotel Ranga, Iceland's top countryside resort, is the newest addition to Small Luxury Hotels of the World, a network of exceptional accommodations carefully selected for their individual character and consistently high standard of luxury guest experiences.

The luxury log-cabin is located in one of the world's best spots to view the Aurora Borealis and is set up for stargazing in a private observatory, with Northern Lights wake-up calls, and outdoor thermal hot tubs with volcano views.

According to SLH,"The most spectacular feature of this luxury log-cabin is its location. The landscape, free of pollution and 60 miles from the capital, is one of the world's best spots to view the phenomenon of the aurora borealis. Every inch of the hotel celebrates its surroundings, from the panoramic glass windows in the gourmet restaurant to the outdoor geothermal hot tubs with views of the active Hekla volcano."

"We're delighted to have Hotel Ranga included in Small Luxury Hotels of the World," said Fridrik Palsson, hotelier and owner of Hotel Ranga. "We've always strived to provide a world-class luxury experience here in the Icelandic countryside."

"It's especially pleasing to see our years of hard work validated by this superior brand recognized by travelers all over the world. We have many people to thank for this; not just our hard-working staff but also our guests who have provided us with invaluable feedback over the years."

Feedback and reviews by hotel guests recently provided Hotel Ranga with top honors from TripAdvisor. The four-star luxury resort was voted  a 2017 Travelers' Choice Award Winner in two categories: Top Hotel for Romance and a Top Hotel for Service in Iceland. Based on reviews and opinions from millions of travelers, Hotel Ranga is in the top 1% of hotels.
