  • Amazing all the way.

    "From the location, to the facilities, to the staff. Superb, impeccable, unforgettable. Cannot wait to plan a return trip. The views are out of this world, the comfort complete, the restaurant excellent, but as usual, it is the complete dedication of the staff that always makes the difference." ~ November 2021

  • Beautiful Place.

    "Loved the UMI. The friendly casual atmosphere was perfect and the staff were fantastic. The food and drink were also exceptional. Architectural design is also worth noting because of the clean and simple forms that fit into the environment." ~ November 2021

  • Wonderful Property.

    "We stayed one night at Umi and found it to be the nicest hotel during our week stay around the island. The decor is minimalist but very tastefully done with clean lines and appealing linens and furnishings. We had both a standard and a superior room. Both were very nice with comfortable beds and lovely views of the mountains. The bathroom had all new, modern fixtures. Great rain shower, upgraded toiletries, large bath towels and bath robes. There were many nice touches like a hair dryer and flat iron, coffee maker and wine glasses in the room. Breakfast was served in the dining room as a buffet. Many options and excellent choices to find a filling breakfast. All staff was helpful and everyone on site was wearing masks. Only regret was that we weren't there longer. " ~ October 2021

  • Wonderful stay at UMI. Zero complaints!

    "My husband and I stayed at UMI for a week and loved it. The food and drinks were excellent, the staff was friendly and welcoming, and the rooms were clean with beautiful views. We traveled all along the southern part of Iceland and found the location to be perfect for what we wanted to see. We also enjoyed a short walk to the beach from the hotel at sunset and were the only ones there." ~ October 2021

  • Great Gem on the South Iceland Coast.

    "Great little hotel - just 28 rooms - on the South Coast of Iceland - about 35 minutes west of Vik and an hour west of Hella. Situated between the coastline to the south and the snowy moss covered mountains to the north. Great on site restaurant, bar, and friendly service. Only desire would be to add a hot tub for use after a long day of hiking." ~ October 2021
