“The remote location of this property makes you feel like you’ve totally escaped the real world. Rooms are simple, but comfortable, and the large windows overlook the mountain or sea; just relax and take in the views. In the evening after a busy day explore the south coast’s superb landscape, then pick your spot in the bar by the fireplace."
Complimentary bottle of wine
Located along a dramatic stretch of black sand beach on Iceland’s south coast, UMI Hotel sits at the base of the famous Eyjafjallajökul volcano. The building blends into the surrounding granite cliffs and windswept heath, but inside this hotel is filled with warmth.
The 28 light-filled rooms are simple, but comfortable. Inspired by nature, they feature wooden furniture and warm woollen blankets. The large windows overlook the mountain or sea.
The restaurant serves traditional Icelandic cuisine, produced from local ingredients and complemented by views of Westman Islands and the southern coast. There’s also a bar with a fireplace.
UMI Hotel is ideally located for exploring the south coast’s superb landscape and learning about its explosive side in the Lava Centre. There are abundant activities on offer, including horse riding, golfing, snowmobiling, glacier hikes, paragliding, and bird and whale watching tours.
