Cathay Pacific Lounge Review
According to Skytrax Cathay Pacific lounge was ranked #3 for its business class and #1 for first class lounge in 2016. And I had the opportunity to visit the one in Bangkok and Hong Kong International Airport to check it out myself, and provide my personal review.
Bangkok’s Cathay Pacific Lounge
Upon reaching the entrance of the lounge in Bangkok International Airport the overall look gives a lush, elegant and comfortable feel. Very soothing on the eyes.
Once stepped in you will be greeted by their friendly staff who will escort you in. The theme has been very consistent across the different sections in the lounge. The use of earthy tone colour scheme, well-mixed of hard and soft elements like low wall concrete wall partition, wooden dining area, leather sofa and fabric seats. And a balance use of Asian and modern furnishing in its decor – Vietnamese lamp, glass and wicker lamp shades. All these soft touches are well thought out and placed.
The lighting in Cathay Pacific lounge is just right. Unlike some of the airline lounges where you will be greeted with bright lights, here the room is well-lit accompanied by the natural light overlooking the runway. Individual lamps are placed in each seatings should you need an additional lighting.
There were ample seatings – leather sofas and comfy seats for group chats, individual seats overlooking runway and mini office desk with printer.
You will be spoilt with food choices in Cathay Pacific lounge! They have a breakfast, salad bar and a good selection of beverages. And for tea lover out there they served TWG tea! In additional, they have noodle bar serving a piping hot noodle.
Now, their toilet is simply lush. The basin area and floor are dry. Cleaners wipe up the area regularly. You do not have to worry of getting your sleeves or cuffs wet.
Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. A nice quiet oasis in a busy airport.
