Hótel Rangá, a luxury hotel near Hella in south Iceland, has become a member of the Special Hotels of The World. Fifty hotels around the world are members who pride themselves of offering exclusive service and having a unique market position in their respective country.
Hótel Rangá is currently being redesigned and its new design was inspired by the landscape and environment surrounding the hotel. Guests are offered a view of three glaciers and the volcano Hekla as well as one of the best salmon fishing rivers in Iceland, Eystri Rangá, just 40 meters away from the hotel.
The hotel has become a popular place of accommodation for those hoping to spot the northern lights and it located quite close to the most frequently visited tourist destinations in south Iceland, like Geysir, Gullfoss waterfall and Thingvellir national park, a.k.a. the Golden Circle.
According to a press release from Hótel Rangá, the hotel has earned a very good reputation among demanding customers, both Icelandic and foreign. It has 38 rooms, including a 74-square-meter suite, 15 deluxe rooms and 22 superior rooms.
The hotel has always made an effort to offer gourmet food at its restaurant, which is currently undergoing changes. Once its enlargement is completed, at some point this year, the restaurant will seat 110 people. The hotel’s conference room is also being enlarged.
Additionally, this year facilities for massage and relaxation will be established and in 2009, Hótel Rangá plans to open a SPA as well as a conference and trade center.
