Qatar Airways opens an excellent new lounge in Singapore

A few weeks we wrote about the brand new Qantas First Class lounge in Singapore.  This looks like a fantastic facility and, if you flying out of Singapore on British Airways in First Class, or have a BA Gold card, you should definitely give it a go instead of using the British Airways lounges.

There is now some good news for British Airways business class passengers.

Qatar Airways has just opened a brand new business class lounge in Singapore.  The airline was previously using the SATS contract lounge ….. but this looks substantially better!

The bad news is that this lounge is only for people travelling in business class or First Class.  You cannot get access with a British Airways Silver or Gold card if you are flying in economy – you would be sent to the SATS lounge instead, so you are better off with the BA lounge.

This is same rule that Qatar Airways operates with its lounge at Heathrow Terminal 4, and ensures that it can offer an uber-premium experience.

There is some good stuff here:

  • free garment steaming
  • a full a la carte waiter-served restaurant (see below)
  • a bistro
  • wireless device charging stations
  • ‘relaxation pods’ (see above)
  • a Martini Bar
  • five shower rooms

If you want to find out more, I strongly recommend you read this full review from Singapore-based frequent flyer site Mainly Miles.

All of the images here are taken from the Mainly Miles review with permission.  The conclusion is that this is an excellent facility and very nearly as good as the new Qantas First Class Lounge.

    O/T L&G over 50s life ins: got the request to choose our £100 giftcards today, that was after only 2-3 weeks of signing up/ 1st payment a day ago, gone for £100 Amazon gcs payable in 6 months

    it’s direct application if anybody interested, £5-6/ month for 6 months

    • Good to hear, hopefully I’ll get mine next week. Also hoping we don’t need to wait 6 months for the giftcard but given what’s going on paying the policy for 6 months might not be a bad idea.

        I’m using my 65% Amazon discount to get double whammy cheap Melia points (for hotel rooms) next Black Friday when the 50% discount comes round again

  2. Gatwick South My Lounge…what is the breakfast like? Will be there with my dragon pass 🙂 or am I better going to the grain store with my lounge club? Will be early tomorrow so assuming I wouldn’t have an issue getting into my lounge but more concerned with having a decent breakfast

  3. Peter Taysum says:

    I’m confused. The first paragraph (Singapore lounge) says if you’re First or Gold use the new First lounge; but Silver and Gold can’t access the Business lounge… Surely Gold can’t access First lounge either?!?

    Peter 😊

    I’m often confused mind 🤣

    • Qantas and Qatar both have two syllables starting with Qa, with a t and another a.
      So I can see how they could be confusing to those not familiar with them.
      But they are different airlines, and may apply different rules.

  4. Something missing from your article is the secret BA First Lounge at SIN worth giving a try.
    Can’t compare it to the newer lounges your article highlights, but if you like James Bond style stuff, incredible service and a very private lounge then I’d say it’s comparable. I guess not many people know about since it didn’t make the article.
