One of Iceland’s original entries into the luxury category may not stack up to an international standard, but this old horse farm expertly plays up its log cabin charm. Opt for a Deluxe room, with local artwork and a Jacuzzi tub, rather than the seven suites with international designs. An Asia-themed space with tatami, for example. Hotel Ranga's excellent service is what truly distinguishes this property from its farm-stay neighbors. That, and an exceptional in-house restaurant that puts haute finishes on Icelandic comfort food. Order the pan-fried Arctic char with cauiflower foam, or sous vide salmon with kale).
