Best Airport Lounges

There are airport lounges, and then there are the type of lounges that makes you pray for a flight delay. Just as no two airlines are same, there are no same lounges. Here are some of airport lounges which offer you un-ending luxury:

HONG KONG: Cathay Pacific’s The Wing

This is the mother of all lounges. Spread over 3,994 square metres and over two floors, with a 24-metre Long Bar of hot and cold buffet items, Japanese Noodle Bar, four restaurants, 24 shower suites with soaking tubs, 26 IT workstations, lots of daybeds and comfortable chairs, and a spa, makes it the most luxurious lounge.It offers passengers unparalleled levels of comfort and convenience. Entry is for first class and business class ticket holders, and select status program fliers.

NEW YORK: British Airways Terraces Lounge
This lounge has been referred as an air travel environment for the 21st century. The trickling water fountains, the sounds of birds chirping, fully reclining lounge chairs under white umbrellas give it an altogether different look than any other lounge.The lounge has a Molton Brown Travel Spa with hydrotherapy showers, reflexology treatments and specially designed pre and post flight massages.

SYDNEY: Qantas First Lounge
Qantas’ first-class lounge is designed after its A380 airplane fleet. Here, one can indulge in a Payot Paris day spa, a 48-seat open-kitchen restaurant headed by Australian star-chef Neil Perry, an entertainment area with Sony PlayStations and movies. The best features here are the 180-degree views of Sydney, and an air-freshening tropical garden of 8,400 plants set into a 30-metre wall.

ABU DHABI: Etihad’s Diamond First Class Lounge
Etihad’s flagship lounge at its home hub of Abu Dhabi has an à la carte restaurant with a fancy chef’s table in the kitchen, a Six Senses Spa with 15-minute treatments (from foot “detoxes” to facials), a champagne bar, a cigar and cognac lounge, a business centre with free Wi-Fi, and a library.
But the best feature is prim-looking nannies who will look after your children in a proper nursery overflowing with books and toys, and its own children’s menu.

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines SilverKris First Class Lounge
This 2,787-square-metre flagship lounge promises to attend to all your needs — including showers with free toothbrushes and razors, low-lit ‘slumberettes’ for napping, massage chairs, meeting rooms, a hot buffet and business centres.

London:  Virgin Atlantic Upper Class Clubhouse
This lounge leaves you literally breathless. The lounge opened originally back in 2006, and has been repeatedly fine tuned and updated. It is open to people flying Upper Class or who have a Frequent Flyer Gold card. The £11m flagship lounge, which is over 2,500 square metres in total, was created by the Virgin Atlantic design team and the lounge has been designed using London-based architectural practice, with interiors designed to feel like a private members’ club.

Once you are in the lounge, you won’t even feel like boarding your flight. So get yourself pampered at these best of airport lounges and you will crave for spending more time at these lounges.
