First, this lounge is really huge although the fact that this is originally designed for business class passengers and temporarily being shared with the first class guests as well, means it gets pretty crowded during peak hours. I heard that the first class lounge would open later this year so I’m really hoping to visit it too.
They used to offer a la carte service (and I’ve heard that the menu was quite good) but as of August 2016, they have stopped it so there’s only the usual buffet which is unfortunately subpar with its luxurious design and amenities. The food served from the restaurant tasted very good.
Inside this huge lounge, there are lots of seating areas where you have your own bottle of water, packaged cookies, touchscreen monitor and power outlet. You also get your own privacy due to the fact that there are shields between seats.
One thing I noticed though during the breakfast service was that the waiters had to search for the guest who ordered such item inside the dining area. It is because guests had to place their order from the “sandwich bar” and then find an available seat (if they haven’t been seated yet) and wait there till the waitress finds him, which is probably how they do it. Still, there should be a better system for this.
In the bistro, they serve mostly sandwiches and salads.

They used to offer the French brand L’Occitane en Provence shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and lotion together with the usual Rituals hand soap and body lotion but during my last visit in September 2016, they have removed the small bottles of L’Occitane en Provence bath products and they only have large dispensers of shampoo and shower gel in the shower room from Rituals.

Having seen pictures of this lounge before, I knew that it was one of the nicest lounges out there so I was really eager to visit it personally. I think this lounge deserves to be on my top list of lounges. The staff were very friendly, the lounge itself is just so beautiful, modern and functional and of course, they really have great food. So if you haven’t visited this lounge yet, make sure to do so. I’m sure you’ll be impressed too.
Because oneworld’s airlines all have different names for their membership tiers in their frequent flyer programmes(FFP), the alliance has created tier names that are common right across oneworld(Emerald, Sapphire, and Ruby), so you can be clear of the benefits to which you are entitled wherever you fly through the alliance network. You’ll get the membership automatically when registering the FFP of oneworld airlines.
