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.
