Recently awarded sales site of the year at the Icelandic Web Awards, the Blue Lagoon booking experience is a key element in the daily operations of Iceland's most sought-after tourist attraction.

A long-term project

Ever since the start of their digital transformation journey, we’ve been working with The Blue Lagoon to realise their ambitious plans for the future.

Starting out with strong, scalable technical foundations, we built a design system that flows between the company’s various platforms and customer touch-points.

The heart of the entire project is a custom-made booking engine that we launched in 2019 and have been expanding and improving on ever since.

Booking your stay

Allowing customers to book their visit, be it a quick stop on their way to the airport or a multi-day stay in the luxury resort, is the main focus of our ongoing project for The Blue Lagoon.

The booking engine is a custom-made web application that seamlessly integrates with the website. Customers can book visits to the lagoon, spa and restaurant, with different experiences available to choose from. You can also book accommodation at The Silica Hotel, or The Retreat Hotel, an award-winning luxury resort with Michelin-starred dining and a private lagoon.

While booking, you see real-time availability and prices for all services offered. Existing customers can log-in to view their itinerary and manage their booking details.

"The Blue Lagoon is currently in the middle of a digital transformation journey. The highly skilled people at Aranja are at the center of that journey and their development team is pivotal in helping us reach our goals. We can not recommend them highly enough."
