Iceland A great New Year 2015-2016

Surprise to Isabelle… New Year in Iceland!!! Yeap it was way before Malaysia Kuala Lumpur New Year 2017 or Taiwan Experience Rotary Club Hsinchu Hsinhu Christmas 2016

I knew I was taking a risk knowing that Isabelle hates cold and snow hence looking for breathtaking experience!

Hotel Grimsborgir

We did drive 90km from Keflavik to join New Year’s Eve in this place and it was like an oasis in the desert!
It looks great and then you are conducted to your suite and you find the kingdom of cleanliness and a spacious place!
Then we went back to reception to have a drink near the fireplace then a real gala buffet! The food was of quality, the room with nice decoration and atmosphere.
I also have to highlight the quality and accuracy of the service… Totally flawless and with a smile. All this under the supervision of an equally skilled management.
Great fireworks to close the meal!


Hilton Reykjavik Nordica and The Vox

As you know I am diamond with Hilton Honors and so use them a lot and I must say that I have been really pleasantly surprised….

  • Service
  • Cleanliness
  • Atmosphere
  • Decoration
  • Capabilities
  • Executive lounge

All is there and available and of high quality!
Food was also great at the restaurant but will make an extra post for The VOX….

As I mentioned, Hilton is a superb place and you can enjoy a great restaurant delivering high quality food! To be clear, the service has been perfect! They could manage my neutropenic requirements and deliver fantastic meal! I highly recommend the place…

Grindavik Lava and Blue Lagoon

This is no doubt the best way to close your 3 hours VIP experience in Blue Lagoon!
I want to highlight a flawless service despite a full restaurant. A high quality food and all great preparations…
This place is a must! Keep it up folks!

Blue lagoon, A must go place… I highly recommend the luxury treatment… We were there by night and enjoyed it to the full… Take also the opportunity to book the Lava restaurant for the FULL experience!

I was craving for pasta and did get what I wanted…. Nothing to die for, nice service but for sure not a highlight but good food in a cosy place…


Harpa Concert Hall – Beautiful building well placed in the landscape… A bit of Sydney in Reykjavik! Take a pic including ocean and wildlife behind!

Hallgrimskirkja – You have no other choice than moving to the top of the temple to take the best picture ever from Reykjavik! It is simply splendid!
